At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Raiders WR Andre Holmes is four inches taller and 20 pounds heavier than Denarius Moore. Over the last seven games of the 2013 season, Holmes 25 receptions for 431 yards - an average of 17.2 yards per catch - and had a touchdown.
HC Dennis Allen noted the trend toward larger receivers league-wide and said of Holmes, “Sometimes you get these big receivers and they don’t play big. Andre not only has the physical stature but he plays to that stature,’’ I think he’s going to be a real factor for us this year.’’
Holmes is now on the radar as a serious late-round sleeper. He performed well in starter’s snaps over the final six games of the 2013 season, averaging 4.0-66-.17 (WR3-type numbers) in that span.
