Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

LaDainian Tomlinson, who retired in June, said that he thinks new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano’s grinding approach to offense could become a problem for WR Santonio Holmes, who complained about the offense last season before sparking an in-huddle argument with Mark Sanchez during the season-ending loss to the Dolphins.

“Santonio was brought there to be the No. 1 receiver and catch a lot of balls through the passing game and if you are a team that’s not going to throw the ball very much that’s going to make for an unhappy receiver, right?” Tomlinson asked. “So, if Week 6 they haven’t thrown the ball more than 15 times a game and Santonio is not getting his catches you may hear some things: him speaking out, him saying things that may rub some teammates the wrong way. It could very well happen, but I hope Santonio learned from last year and that’s all you can really do. You have to learn from your previous mistakes.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Holmes carries some risk, but he's going in the 9th round or later, so some risk is expected. With Plaxico Burress gone, Holmes could be a nice value in the later rounds if his head is on straight.
