Raiders re-signed Andre Holmes to a one-year contract "worth up to" $3 million.
The deal includes $1 million fully guaranteed. It is an extremely disappointing outcome for Holmes, who played just 335 snaps on offense last season and is likely ticketed for a similar role behind Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Seth Roberts. Once a promising hold in Dynasty formats, Holmes has little value outside of the deepest formats. Mar 15 - 8:08 AM

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have "inquired" about free agent WR Andre Holmes.

He's also drawn some interest from Minnesota and Philadelphia. The Dolphins have an opening at wide receiver after losing Rishard Matthews to the Titans on Wednesday. Holmes would be no better than fourth on Miami's depth chart behind Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. The 27-year-old reeled in just 14-of-33 targets for 201 yards and four touchdowns with Oakland last year.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Eagles are interested in free agent WR Andre Holmes.

Caplan says the Eagles are looking for an "outside" receiver "with size." Holmes certainly fits the bill at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds. The Raiders are interested in re-signing Holmes, and the Vikings are reportedly "taking a look."
Mar 10 - 10:12 AM

ESPN's Ben Goessling reports the Vikings are "taking a look" at Andre Holmes.

The Raiders are interested in re-signing Holmes, but he would be smart to look for a better opportunity elsewhere. With Mike Wallace gone, the Vikings need someone to step up across from Stefon Diggs. Holmes could be brought in to compete with Charles Johnson for that role. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the Lions, Bengals and Eagles are also interested.
Mar 9 - 1:22 PM

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Raiders are trying to re-sign free agent WR Andre Holmes.

Holmes would be wise to test the market and see if he can find more opportunity elsewhere with Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree locked atop the Raiders' receiver depth chart and Seth Roberts probably in the lead for No. 3 duties. Holmes (6'4/210) has great size and leaping ability, but hasn't been able to consistently put it together. The Hillsdale product turns 28 in June.
Mar 8 - 12:38 PM

Andre Holmes was not targeted in the season finale.

Holmes finishes the season with 14 receptions for 201 yards and four scores. Retained on an original-round tender last offseason, Holmes will likely be leaving for greener pastures as an unrestricted free agent this spring. Holmes should get some interest as a rangy receiver with deep speed.
Jan 3 - 8:26 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Sep 11, 2015 05:35:00 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.
Thu, Sep 10, 2015 06:22:00 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.

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.
