Bears' J.P. Holtz: Suiting up Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz (shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.

The 27-year-old exited last Sunday's loss to the Lions after fielding one offensive snap, though he was able to participate in a limited capacity throughout this past practice week. Holtz has earned the green light from Chicago's training staff, allowing him to resume his typical backup tight end and special-teams roles as the 5-7 Bears fight to keep fading playoff hopes alive.

Bears' J.P. Holtz: Leaves with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz exited Sunday's loss to the Lions with a shoulder injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Holtz wasn't targeted before leaving the game during the second half. The 27-year-old was considered questionable to return but never appeared to retake the field.

Bears' J.P. Holtz: Re-signs with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz has officially signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Bears, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Holtz played 14 games for the Bears last season and started seven of them. He was used mainly as a blocker but did log seven receptions for 91 yards. His role is not expected to be expanded in 2021, as the team brought in veteran Jimmy Graham for No. 1 tight end duties.

Bears' J.P. Holtz: Fails to see target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz wasn't targeted in the Bears' 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the campaign with seven catches for 91 yards in 13 games.

When the Bears suffered injuries to their top-three tight ends, Holtz was thrust into a prominent role down the stretch, but he averaged fewer than two receptions over six games. He'll be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, and it's likely he'll look to compete for a backup role wherever he signs.

Bears' J.P. Holtz: One grab in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz caught one pass for 13 yards in the Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Holtz saw just one target for the third game in a row, and he won't be a strong fantasy option in a Week 17 matchup against the Vikings.

Bears' J.P. Holtz: Loses yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz saw one target but lost a yard on his lone catch of Sunday's 21-13 loss to Green Bay.

Holtz's stock climbed after Week 14's 56-yard performance, but Sunday's outing should level things out a bit. The rookie, thanks to injuries, has climbed up the depth chart and the Bears' offense has shown more signs of life as of late, but he's a tough play Sunday against a rallying Chiefs defense with a tenacious safety over the middle in Tyrann Mathieu.

Bears' J.P. Holtz: First multi-catch performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz caught all three of his targets for 56 yards in the Bears' 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

Although he's been serving as the primary blocking tight end for the Bears, Holtz saw his first targets in eight weeks. Despite posting a big yardage total, his low floor makes him nearly impossible to start in the fantasy playoffs.

Bears' J.P. Holtz: Scooped by Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears claimed Holtz off waivers from the Redskins on Wednesday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Holtz entered the league in 2016 as an undrafted rookie out of Pittsburgh, and he made his NFL debut for the Redskins in Week 1 since Jordan Reed (concussion) was out. The Bears appear to be looking for similar depth for Trey Burton (groin) in their Week 2 matchup versus the Broncos.

J.P. Holtz: Cut by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins waived Holtz on Tuesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Holtz was promoted to the active roster in time for the season opener Sunday and he managed to see 14 snaps on special teams. The 26-year-old's release is likely indicative of Jordan Reed's (concussion) status for Week 2. If Holtz clears waivers, he would likely be a good candidate to return to Washington's practice squad.

Redskins' J.P. Holtz: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins promoted Holtz to their active roster Saturday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Holtz originally failed to make the Redskins' 53-man ruster, but subsequently landed on their practice squad. Now, with Jordan Reed (concussion) unlikely to play Week 1, the team is opting to add depth at tight end. Still, Jeremy Sprinkle figures to get most of the backup tight end run behind Vernon Davis should Reed ultimately suit up.

Redskins' J.P. Holtz: Rejoins Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtz signed a contract with the Redskins on Saturday.

Holtz was with Washington during the preseason but fell victim to roster cutdowns at the start of September. The 25-year-old provides additional depth at tight end with Vernon Davis (concussion) doubtful for Week 17 and Jordan Reed (foot) on injured reserve.
