Santonio Holmes Shows Up In Different Places

New York Daily News - [Full Article]

In Pittsburgh, Santonio Holmes was the "X" receiver, or split end. While Holmes had considerable success in that spot as a Steeler, the Jets are having Holmes line up in different places. He'll work some as the "Z" receiver or flanker, and some as the "Y" receiver in the slot.

Holmes has indicated statistics and where he's at on the field aren't his main concerns as he gears up for his first season in New York.

“I came here with a mindset to win a championship," Holmes said. "I can go every game this season and only catch two passes a game. If we make it to the Super Bowl, they're going to look at Santonio like this guy was a big help.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Holmes is not a guy to get excited about drafting this year. He'll be out four games due to a suspension, and New York's offense is built around the run. At best, he's someone you take in the latter stages of a draft and stash on your roster in the hopes he can contribute down the stretch, but he doesn't have much upside as a Jet.
