Jets | In position to free up plenty of cap space

Sun, 09 Feb 2014 12:25:44 -0800

The New York Jets could find themselves more than $40 million under the salary cap, if they release QB Mark Sanchez, WR Santonio Holmes and CB Antonio Cromartie, as expected.

Sanchez's $2 million roster bonus is not due until March 25.

Thu, 12 Dec 2013 14:47:01 -0800

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: The Carolina Panthers are good at getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks, so it may be difficult for Geno Smith to have much success in this one. However, the Panthers' secondary is their weakness. Still, Holmes is a flex play, at best.

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 20:33:32 -0800

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) was able to play 41 snaps in the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders, and he posted three catches for 55 yards. Holmes said Sunday, Dec. 8, that he felt fine.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact he looked healthier than perhaps at any point this year, he is still too risky to rely upon in most fantasy leagues at this important juncture of the season.

Jets | Santonio Holmes to play more

Thu, 05 Dec 2013 16:20:13 -0800

The New York Jets expect WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) to be more involved in the offense in Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders as he nears full health. However, head coach Rex Ryan said Holmes still isn't ready for a full workload. "It doesn't look like he's hobbled at all," Ryan said. "He looks good and explosive."

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Holmes, but probably not enough to convince fantasy owners in deep leagues that he's anything more than a desperation flex play. Avoid him if you can.

Jets | Limited Santonio Holmes for preservation

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 17:53:18 -0800

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Monday, Dec. 2, that the team limited WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) to two snaps in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins to help keep him healthy the rest of the year. "We thought he was going to play a little more than that," Ryan said. "We noticed as the coaches that the burst wasn't quite there. Instead of him possibly having a setback, we were only to play him in what we said was a must situation. We can't afford him to take a step back, lose him for the rest of the year. We need him going forward."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to steer far clear of this situation, especially at a critical juncture of the season for owners. He is limited, and is likely to be limited going forward. And when he has been healthy, he hasn't done a whole lot and his quarterback situation is a mess.

Jets | Santonio Holmes plays sparingly

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 15:06:05 -0800

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) played sparingly in the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins. He did not have any receptions, and he was not targeted.

Fantasy Tip: Holmes played on only three offensive snaps in the Week 13 loss. The poor quarterback play hasn't helped Holmes' cause, and now it's uncertain who will start under center for the team moving forward. Relying on Holmes is a blind shot in the dark.

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 09:01:01 -0800

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: Holmes probably is nothing more than a flex option for most owners this week. He could say on the bench if owners have better options at wide receiver.

Jets | Several to be game-time decisions

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 15:52:01 -0800

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said CB Antonio Cromartie (hip) will be a game-time decision in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins after he aggravated his right hip in Week 12. Cromartie said his hip is bothering him more this year than it has since 2008 when he fractured the same hip. He ran during position drills Friday, Nov. 29, and rode a stationary bike. Also to be game-time decisions will be WR Jeremy Kerley (elbow), LB Garrett McIntyre (knee) and WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring). Holmes' right hamstring has been acting up this week, and Ryan said he is concerned for Holmes.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Geno Smith and the Jets offense has been horrible the past two weeks and is way too inconsistent to be able to bank on any of their receiving options. Holmes is a desperation play.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot, knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 20, but he said he did not aggravate any of his injuries in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills. "No, it wasn't really a setback," head coach Rex Ryan said. "It's just that today we thought it was best that he miss practice and heal up a little bit. But it wasn't something that he had a major injury, let's say. So I expect him to practice (Thursday)."
