Could WR Santonio Holmes Return Punts?

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

New York Jets special-teams coordinator Mike Westhoff said that receiver Santonio Holmes could be returning punts for the Jets.

As a rookie in 2006, Holmes averaged 10.2 yards on 20 returns. In 2007, he returned no punts. In 2008, he averaged 6.6 yards on 34 returns. Last year, he averaged only three yards on only two returns.

Fantasy Impact: 

Fantasy owners who drafted Holmes have been eager for him to return, and wondering what his role in the Jets offense will be. If your league awards points for return yards or return touchdowns, the fact that Holmes could be used as a punt returner is a positive.
