Description: The Bears have released wideout Santonio Holmes.
Insight: Holmes' release likely means third wide receiver Marquess Wilson is ready to return from his collarbone injury. Holmes never caught more than two balls in any game this season and hasn't been a fantasy-worthy asset since 2011 with the Jets.

Description: USA Today reports that Bears third wide receiver Marquess Wilson will be sidelined at least 12 to 14 weeks with his broken collarbone, which gives veteran receiver Santonio Holmes a chance to be more than just an injury replacement for a couple weeks. Chicago signed Holmes on Saturday.
The Chicago Bears have signed receiver Santonio Holmes.
Insight: Holmes will still compete with fellow receivers Josh Morgan and Eric Weems for the Bears' No. 3 wide out job. If the 30-year-old has anything left in the tank, Holmes should run away with the job. Holmes struggled to stay on the field the last two seasons in New York, playing just 15 games and catching 43 balls for 728 yards with two touchdowns.

Description: The Jets have released wideout Santonio Holmes.
Insight: Holmes had just 23 receptions and one touchdown in 11 games last season, though he did average 19.8 yards per catch. His time in New York was a complete failure compared to his production in Pittsburgh.

Description: Jets receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is expected to be actice Sunday against Oakland.
Insight: Lets hope active means more than the three snaps he saw last week while "active." Fantasy owners should not trust him to be on the field or that quarterback Geno Smith could get him the ball even if he was open.
12/1/2013 12:08:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Dolphins.
Insight: Holmes is far from 100 percent and had just one catch for 12 yards on four targets last week against the Ravens. He shouldn't be started in any leagues.

Insight: He's going to be a game-time decision Sunday against Miami. Fantasy owners probably won't be holding their breath as Holmes is only owned in about 18 percent of ESPN leagues.

Description: New York receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) will make his return Sunday against the Bills, but he won't be on the field for 100 percent of the snaps, according to ESPNNewYork.com. Holmes hasn't played since Week 4.
Insight: "Will he be on a pitch count? I think we’ll be smart about that," coach Rex Ryan said. "We’re not going to put him out there for 80 snaps. But does he look good to me? He absolutely looks good to me." Holmes is a WR4 at best.

Insight: It wouldn't exactly be a shock to see him go. Holmes wore out his welcome in East Rutherford a long time ago. He'll always be remembered for his Super Bowl heroics in Pittsburgh but the truth is Holmes has really only had a couple of productive seasons. In four games this season, the 29-year-old has made ten catches for 243 yards and one touchdown. Most of it came in a Week 3 win over Buffalo (five receptions for 154 yards).

Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (hamstring) could be back in Week 11, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Insight: "I think he'll play, said coach Rex Ryan. Holmes hasn't suited up since Sept. 29 at Tennessee. He has 243 yards on just 10 receptions this season, but 154 of them came in Week 3 versus the Bills, New York's Week 1 opponent. Don't expect consistent production from the 29-year-old.
10/31/2013 2:13:00 PM
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is still at the working on an individual drills level and not yet ready for full contact, according to Rich Cimini.
Insight: The Jets have a bye in Week 10, so it seems likely we won't see Holmes until Week 11 at Buffalo. By this time no fantasy owner should be waiting for his return.
10/28/2013 6:24:00 PM
Description: According to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, the Jets aren't "overly optimistic" about Santonio Holmes (hamstring) returning in Week 9 against the Saints.
Insight: The Jets have a bye in Week 10, so it seems likely we won't see Holmes until Week 11 at Buffalo. The Bengals locked down Jeremy Kerley Sunday, leaving David Nelson as Geno Smith's No. 1 target. Nelson caught eight passes for 80 yards on 12 targets, giving him 160 yards the last two games.
10/25/2013 12:09:00 PM
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (hamstring) could sit out until after the team's bye (Week 10).
Insight: At this point fantasy owners should not be counting on Holmes to help them much before the playoffs. And if you have gotten into the playoffs without him, it's probably a good move to continue playing with the ones who got you there.

Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday and is not expected to play Sunday against the Patriots.
Insight: According to ESPNNY.com, Holmes has "little chance" to play Sunday. Tight end Jeff Cumberland has led the Jets in receiving yards in each of the last two weeks and with Holmes injured and Kellen Winslow suspended he has a good chance to do it again in Week 7.
10/13/2013 11:48:00 AM
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes is inactive for Week 6 against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Holmes (hamstring) had not been practicing during the week, so this should not surprise any fantasy owners. He's only been fantasy worthy in one of the first four weeks.

Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes, who left Sunday's game early in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury, is expected to miss a couple of weeks, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
Insight: Holmes had a season-high 154 receiving yards in Week 3, but he managed just one catch, for 25 yards Sunday against the Titans. The Jets will sign David Nelson for depth.

Insight: Holmes missed most of 2012 with a Lisfranc injury in his left foot and said he's not fully healthy even after producing a season-high 154 receiving yards Sunday against the Bills. "I still have a long way to go," Holmes said. In Week 4, the Jets play the Titans, who gave up 33 catches, 392 yards and two touchdowns to opposing receivers in the first two games before holding San Diego receivers to five catches for 41 yards in Week 3. Holmes is a risky WR3 in 10-team leagues but 12-team owners should consider him in Week 4.

Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes was limited in Wednesday's practice, but should be ready for Thursday's game with New England
Insight: Holmes hasn't produced a 1,000-yard receiving season since 2009 and caught just one ball for 13 yards in Week 1. With Jeremy Kerley (concussion) likely sidelined, he should be a better option in Week 2.
