Andre Holmes hauled in one of two targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Vikings.
Holmes was targeted in the end zone twice—once on his 34-yard touchdown reception and again in the fourth quarter on a pass that was intercepted by Terence Newman. His last three catches have all gone for touchdowns. Unfortunately they’ve been spread out over three games. Despite his five touchdowns, Holmes can't be trusted for fantasy purposes.

Andre Holmes caught 2-of-3 targets for 54 yards and two touchdowns Week 8 against the Raiders.

This performance was completely out of nowhere. Holmes had not recorded a catch since Week 3 and had not had more than one target since Week 2. His first touchdown was a nice touch pass from Derek Carr five-yards out, and he scored on a 49-yard bomb in the second quarter. In typical Holmes' fashion, his other target was a bad drop. Despite the big day, Holmes can be left on the wire.
Nov 1 - 8:06 PM

Andre Holmes secured his lone target for a three-yard touchdown in the Raiders' Week 3 win over Cleveland.

Continuing to rotate with Seth Roberts behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, Holmes made his presence felt on a touchdown catch in the second quarter. At nearly 6-foot-5, Holmes is a red-zone threat, but doesn't play enough snaps to be a worthwhile fantasy stash in the Raiders' offense.
Sep 27 - 5:20 PM

Andre Holmes secured 3-of-4 targets for 50 yards in the Raiders' Week 2 upset of the Ravens.

Holmes shared third receiver duties with Seth Roberts, who caught the game-winning touchdown against Baltimore. The Raiders' sub-package receivers behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree are safe to ignore in fantasy leagues.
Sep 20 - 7:42 PM

Raiders WR Andre Holmes (hand) is listed as probable for Week 1.

Holmes should open the year as Oakland's No. 5 receiver. Seth Roberts and Rod Streater are behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.
Sep 11 - 5:35 PM

Raiders WR Andre Holmes (hand) is practicing in full for Week 1.

Holmes broke his hand midway through training camp, but is already back to 100 percent. Holmes was briefly on the fantasy radar last season, but that's not the case to begin 2015.
Sep 10 - 6:22 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Raiders WR Andre Holmes will miss 3-4 weeks after fracturing his hand in Sunday's training camp practice.

Holmes was no higher than No. 4 on the depth chart after making no noise in training camp. He ran with the second-team offense in the Raiders' first preseason game, playing 18 snaps and catching his lone target for a three-yard touchdown. The 3-4 week timetable puts him in question for Week 1. The injury will allow Kenbrell Thompkins and Brice Butler more opportunities on offense.
Aug 19 - 2:48 PM

Andre Holmes and Kenbrell Thompkins are competing for the Raiders' No. 4 receiver job.

Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and Rod Streater were the Raiders' top-three receivers this spring and will head to camp atop the depth chart. Thompkins reportedly impressed at padless practices, while Holmes didn't generate much buzz. Holmes is a legitimate downfield threat, but Derek Carr didn't throw deep as a rookie and Holmes tumbled down the depth chart. It'd probably be best for Holmes to escape the Black Hole and get a fresh start elsewhere.

Andre Holmes has signed his $1.542 million restricted free agent tender.

This is normally a formality not even worth posting, but Holmes surprisingly got a low tender in March. It meant that any team could have signed him to a sheet and if the Raiders didn't match, they'd get no draft compensation. But Holmes didn't find any interest, so he'll be back as part of a rotation in the Raiders' weak receiving corps.
Apr 7 - 8:08 AM

ESPN Browns reporter Jeremy Fowler believes Cleveland will be interested in restricted free agent WR Andre Holmes.

Holmes was given an original round tender by the Raiders. The low tender gives the Raiders the right to match any offer sheet Holmes receives, but does not give them any compensation if Holmes walks. The 6'4/210 Holmes would be a great addition for the Browns' smurf-ish wide receiver corps. The Browns pulled a similar stunt last offseason, signing Bengals RFA Andrew Hawkins to an offer sheet and prying him away from Cincinnati.
Mar 7 - 12:24 PM

Raiders extended an original round tender to WR Andre Holmes.

Holmes would only be owed $1.542 million if he signs the tender, but Oakland would not be owed any compensation if Holmes signs with another team. It is a surprising move considering the level of interest the inconsistent but talented Holmes should generate. The soon-to-be 27-year-old posted a 47/693/4 line last season.
Mar 7 - 10:00 AM

ESPN Raiders reporter Bill Williamson suggests restricted free agent Andre Holmes could garner interest from other teams.

NFL clubs very rarely lose their restricted free agents because of the way the system is structured. But the Raiders may want to tender Holmes at a level higher than normal as he's shown flashes of difference-making ability at 6'4/210. Over the last two seasons (26 games), Holmes has recorded 72-1,124-5 with a pair of 100-yard outings.
Jan 5 - 12:10 PM

Andre Holmes caught two passes for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.

Holmes was a worthy waiver add following Rod Streater's early-season foot injury. The size/speed freak showed his natural ability with a 5-74-1 line in Week 4 and a 4-121-2 outburst in Week 6. But Holmes proved very inconsistent and inefficient, two things that you can't have when opportunities are already capped by the Raiders offense. When the dust settled, Holmes' big chance ended with 47-693-4. He'll head to free agency as a big-play threat flier.

Andre Holmes caught three passes for 73 yards in the Raiders' Week 16 win over the Bills.

He was targeted six times. Holmes' big grab was a 51-yard leaping catch on a 3rd-and-22. He jumped over the top of Corey Graham to haul in the pass. Earlier in the game, Holmes was targeted in the end zone. He got both hands on the ball but couldn't complete the catch. A big-play threat with little consistency, Holmes will wrap up the season against the Broncos in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 08:10:00 PM

Andre Holmes caught 5-of-12 targets for 70 yards Week 15 against the Chiefs.

33 of Holmes' 70 yards came on the meaningless final drive of the game. Derek Carr is not playing well enough for Holmes to be a fantasy option right now. He is still a high-upside hold in Dynasty.
