With Sammy Watkins (foot) and Zay Jones (knee) sidelined during OTAs, Holmes has been seeing plenty of action while demonstrating smooth route running and good field awareness, John Murphy of BuffaloBills.com reports.

Everyone seems to want to pencil Jones into that No. 2 starting wideout spot, but that may be jumping to conclusions considering the rookie played his college ball at East Carolina, has yet to play an NFL down, and is now injured. Holmes seems like the safer play if the Bills choose to go that route, as he has plenty of pro experience and did catch 47 balls (four TD catches) for the 2014 Raiders. Assuming Jones gets back to health quickly, this might end up being a pretty good job battle this summer.
