Scouting report

OAK WR Andre Holmes - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Andre Holmes has flashed as a dynamic talent in the past, but never was able to put everything together at the NFL level. He just signed a one-year contract worth up to $3 million with just $1 million guaranteed. He will compete for a similar role behind Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and Seth Roberts this year where he saw just over twenty snaps per game.

Fantasy Downside
Holmes is apart of the Raiders supporting cast and would need an injury to get significant work in the passing game.

2016 Bottom Line
After a promising 2014 season where he saw 99 targets in which he averaged 2.9 receptions, 43.3 yards, and 0.25 touchdowns per game it looked like Holmes was going to take a step forward. He was then beat out by undrafted Seth Roberts in 2015 and will only be a factor if the Raiders run into injury trouble in 2016 as Holmes is now squarely in a supporting cast role.

OAK WR Andre Holmes - 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

The Raiders have made some moves to upgrade at wide receiver, signing Michael Crabtree and drafting Amari Cooper, but quarterback Derek Carr already has familiarity with Andre Holmes. Holmes, heading into his fourth season, came to the NFL from tiny Hillsdale College and his acclimation to the NFL remains a work in progress. He led Oakland in receiving yards last year, but can he remain one of Carr's main targets?

Fantasy Upside
Holmes has the ability to explode for big games. Last October, he caught four passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns as the Raiders nearly pulled off an upset over San Diego. Carr, heading into his second season, is poised for further improvement. Crabtree and Rod Streater have both had health issues over the past year. Even if the Raiders want to move Holmes into more of a secondary role, they may not be able to pull that off.

Fantasy Downside
While Holmes is capable of putting up a big game here and there, he also provides plenty of clunkers. During a three week stretch in November, he caught four passes for 47 yards. That helps explain why Oakland entertained zero thoughts about building around him. If Cooper can make the same impact rookies like Odell Beckham Jr. and Mike Evans did last year, he will be Carr's number one target by a wide margin. And with Oakland's offense slanted towards the run, the lower-tier receivers are not going to have much upside.

Bottom Line
You do not need to reserve a space for Andre on your roster at the beginning of the season. He is currently out with a fractured hand. As he has proven to be a playmaker, albeit an erratic one, he could surprise at some point. However, until he learns to be more consistent, he will be no more than a fantasy spot starter who will be more bust than boom.

OAK WR Andre Holmes - Week 17, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 – Andre Holmes at Denver Broncos
Thanks largely to a 51-yard reception, Andre Holmes finished with 73 receiving yards in Week 16. Holmes is always a threat for a big play, but earlier this year against the Broncos, he failed to catch a pass. Of course, some of that blame is the responsibility of Oakland’s coaching staff, which seemed to forget Andre’s existence that week. Regardless, even if Holmes performs better against Denver this time around, his unpredictability makes him a fantasy reserve.

OAK WR Andre Holmes - Week 16, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 – Andre Holmes vs. Buffalo Bills
Andre Holmes hauled in five passes for 70 yards in Week 15. It was one of his stronger performances of late, but Holmes has not caught a touchdown pass since Week 8. Although Andre remains capable of big games, his overall production level is not good enough for anyone to gamble on him, especially with a strong Bills defense headed to Oakland.

OAK WR Andre Holmes - Week 15, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 – Andre Holmes at Oakland Raiders
After a brief flurry earlier in the season, Andre Holmes has been quiet. He caught two passes for 38 yards in Week 14. While Holmes offers mild daily league appeal as a cheap choice capable of blowing up at any time, he would be a frightful option in pretty much every other format.

OAK WR Andre Holmes - Week 14, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 – Andre Holmes vs. San Francisco 49ers
Oakland’s decaying passing game has crippled the sleeper value of Andre Holmes. Holmes has the skills to deliver big games. Unfortunately, he has been producing limited stat lines for awhile now. Such was the case in Week 13, when he snagged three passes for 28 yards. If you are on the hunt for unheralded receivers who can make an unexpected impact, Andre should no longer be in your line of sight.

OAK WR Andre Holmes - Week 13, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 – Andre Holmes at St. Louis Rams

After a three game stretch where he caught four passes for 47 yards, Andre Holmes provided some rays of sunshine in Week 12. Holmes was targeted 10 times, more than anyone else on the Oakland roster, and caught five passes for 55 yards. Andre is the type of player who could blow up at any time, but because of ongoing inconsistency within the Raiders offense, is too inconsistent to trust as anything more than an emergency starter.
