Santonio Holmes | WR | New York Jets

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes indicated he believes QB Mark Sanchez should be the team's starting quarterback at this point. "Right now, it's Sanchez, and that's who we're going with, and we're going to continue on this road until time permits," Holmes said.
Huddle Up: Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but naturally Holmes is going to back the QB who's been throwing him the ball the past 3 seasons. Still, should rookie Geno Smith or veteran David Garrard emerge as the man, Holmes will have to quickly shift allegiances.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes likely will be released next offseason because he is scheduled to count $10.75 million against the salary cut in 2014. He took a $3 million pay cut in order to remain with the team for the 2013 season.
Huddle Up: That's a lot of money to pay a wideout when your quarterback has trouble getting him the ball. That Holmes is a short-timer could also impact what the Jets do in the draft, as this year's class is deep at the receiver position.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes will not report for the start of offseason workouts because he is rehabbing his foot injury in Ohio.
Huddle Up: Holmes' 2012 season ended prematurely due to the foot injury, and he'll have the issue of "how healthy is he?" in addition to having Mark Sanchez as his quarterback taking bites out of his fantasy value.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said there is a chance WR Santonio Holmes (foot) could be limited during training camp because of his surgically repaired foot. Ryan said the team wants to make sure Holmes is ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Holmes was limited to 4 games before injuring his foot, but even when he was playing he was limited by the Jets' QB issues and finished with 20 catches for 272 yards and a TD. As far as pass-catchers go, though, Holmes remains the best the Jets have, especially with FA TE Dustin Keller jumping ship to play with the rival Dolphins.

The New York Jets are insisting that WR Santonio Holmes restructures his contract in oreder to reduce the $11 million base salary he is scheduled to make in 2013. The two sides have been talking about what to do with his contract.
Huddle Up: Holmes is wildly overpaid; the key will be how much of a cut he's willing to take before opting to test the open market. He's the top wideout on the Jets, but they need to get better quarterback play for him to be of significant fantasy value.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot) expects to be ready for the start of the 2013 season.
Huddle Up: Holmes' foot injury limited him to 4 games and 20 catches in 2012, and partly as a result, the punchless Jets scored only 281 points -- their third-lowest single-season total in the past 17 seasons.

The New York Jets want WR Santonio Holmes to renegotiate his contract. He had a team-high $11 million base salary, and $12.5 million cap figure, in 2013. There is no word on whether general manager John Idzik wants Holmes to take a pay cut or restructure. There is offset language in Holmes' contract, meaning if he is released, he can't earn more than $7.5 million.
Huddle Up: It makes sense from the Jets' perspective to reduce Holmes' gaudy salary number; among wideouts only Andre Johnson is a bigger hit to his team's salary cap. Whether Holmes is agreeable, and to what extent, remains to be seen. The best-case fantasy scenario might be Holmes heading somewhere else, where a better quarterback and a more pass-friendly offense would offer greater fantasy opportunities.

The New York Jets may consider asking WR Santonio Holmes to restructure his contract in order to reduce his $11 million base salary for 2013.
Huddle Up: Considering that Holmes has averaged 11 games played, 41 catches, 557 yards and 5 TDs over his 3 years with N.Y., the Jets would be making a more than reasonable request.

The New York Jets have placed WR Santonio Holmes (foot) on Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: And the last decent fantasy player on the Jets roster is out for the season. There will be the occasional outburst, but there is little reason to grab any Jets players at this point.

The New York Jets are unlikely to part ways with WR Santonio Holmes after this season as they are financially tied to him. Holmes will be owed $7.5 million in guaranteed money in 2013.
Huddle Up: Holmes will miss the rest of the 2012 season with a foot injury, and it's entirely possible there will be some new decision-makers making the call on whether or not Holmes returns in 2013.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot) has a Lisfranc injury to his left foot. It is still unclear if his foot is broken, but it is almost a certainty that Holmes is out for the season.
Huddle Up: Even if Holmes does make it back this season, it figures to be too late for useful fantasy purposes, so it's time for GMs to cut bait and move on.

The New York Jets are fearful that WR Santonio Holmes (foot) may be out for the year. The Jets are waiting for further results to determine the extent of the injury.
Huddle Up: With a team-leading 20 catches for 272 yards and a TD so far, Holmes is the only trustworthy fantasy offensive option on the Jets, and his absence would leave the likes of Jeremy Kerley, Stephen Hill and Chaz Schillens to pick up the WR slack.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot) will not play in the team's Week 5 game. Head coach Rex Ryan is unsure of a timetable on Holmes' return; however, the good news is that X-rays on his injured foot were negative.
Huddle Up: The Jets were struggling even with their big playmaker on the field, they can ill afford to be without Holmes for any length of time.

X-rays taken on New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes at the stadium Sunday, Sept. 30, were negative, according to a source. Holmes will undergo an MRI.
Huddle Up: It certainly didn't look good for Holmes when he went down with a foot injury in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. The negative report on Holmes' X-rays is positive news, but there is still the MRI hurdle to clear.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (knee) suffered a foot injury early in the fourth quarter of his team's Week 4 game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Huddle Up: This was the cherry on top of a dismal day for the Jets' offense. Holmes was injured after catching a pass in the flat and then going down awkwardly without contact, in the process giving up the ball that was returned for a 49ers' TD. Holmes had 4 catches for 29 yards in the game after entering the contest with a team- leading 16 catches for 243 yards and a TD.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 6. That also was the case with teammates WR Chaz Schilens (shoulder), DB Ellis Lankster (quadriceps), LB David Harris (ankle), DB Josh Bush (concussion), LB Nick Bellore (Shoulder), RB Joe McKnight (hamstring) and WR Stephen Hill (calf).
Huddle Up: In light of Holmes' injury-marred preseason and Jets' ugly offensive showing in August, there's not much fantasy love for Holmes as he has been the 40th WR picked in drafts on average. Either he'll prove to be a draft-day steal or prove the naysayers correct.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (ribs) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: The Jets had better hope their best receiver is fully healthy heading into Week 1. Considering the state of their receiving corps, having a less-than-100-percent Holmes could be a huge problem. Holmes remains a good flex play for now.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (rib, hamstring) practiced for the second straight day Thursday, Aug. 23, and hopes to play in the team's preseason game Sunday, Aug. 26. 'I feel pretty confident that I can come back and play this week,' said Holmes, after Thursday's practice.
Huddle Up: Holmes, who last season led all Jets wideouts with 51 catches and tied for the lead with 8 TDs, has been MIA all preseason with his injuries, and that's been a factor in the team's offensive struggles (only 3 field goals in 2 games). N.Y. needs all hands on deck as it tries to right the ship before the Sept. 9 season opener against Buffalo.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (back, ribs) was inactive for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18, against the New York Giants due to his back and ribs injury.
Huddle Up: It's been a rough preseason for the Jets' receiving corps. Fellow wideouts Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) and the perennially-injured Chaz Schilens (foot) also were inactive for the game, and the Jets' offense was overmatched in a lopsided, 26-3 loss to the rival Giants. The injuries are robbing the Jets' passing game of preseason chemistry-building time, and that has the very real possibility of carrying over for QB Mark Sanchez and Co. into the early part of the regular season.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes is not taking part in practice Thursday, Aug. 16.
Huddle Up: Holmes has been sidelined with back and rib issues since taking a shot from Antonio Cromartie during a scrimmage. He's currently joined on the sidelines by Jeremy Kerley, nursing a hamstring issue, and Chaz Schilens, who has an ankle issue. With so many Jets wideouts sidelined Stephen Hill continues to get more reps. The suggestion could be made that it will be tough for receivers to develop chemistry with Jets quarterbacks, but their plan to yo-yo Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow in and out of the lineup is already taking care of that.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Monday, Aug. 13, WR Santonio Holmes (ribs) will not play in the second preseason game.
Huddle Up: The WR position is shaping up to be a concern for the Jets. Holmes missed last week's preseason opener, and the other two top veteran wideouts on the roster, Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens, also are hampered by bumps and bruises. With Plaxico Burress released in the offseason, that leaves rookie Stephen Hill and a host of untested players to man the position until the regulars heal. Even CB Antonio Cromartie has gotten into the act, taking practice reps at receiver.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes is doubtful for the team's preseason opener, according to head coach Rex Ryan, and is out indefinitely. Holmes could have some cartilage damage to his ribs.
Huddle Up: Missing the first preseason game isn't a big deal for a veteran like Holmes. If the ribs are still bothering him in two weeks, then you can start to worry. Given the Jets' run-first philosophy and quarterback issues, banking on Holmes as a fantasy factor is a risky proposition to begin with; mix in a rib injury and his fantasy value drops further.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (ribs) had X-rays late Saturday, Aug. 4, and they came back negative. He has been diagnosed with bruised ribs, suffered earlier in the team's intrasquad scrimmage Saturday, and is considered day to day.
Huddle Up: Rex Ryan and the Jets dodged a bullet here. Holmes is by far the most experienced of an untested wideout crop that includes second-year man Jeremy Kerley, journeyman Patrick Turner and second-round draft pick Stephen Hill. Holmes will miss some time but should be fine by the time the games that count roll around.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes is owed $15 million in guarantees over the next two seasons, so he isn't going anywhere anytime soon. However, the team needs him to step up and act like a No. 1 receiver in 2012. He has gone 25 consecutive games without a 100-yard receiving game.
Huddle Up: Well, Holmes' quarterback ranks 26th in passer rating (76.9) over the last two seasons among those with at least 800 attempts. Enough said.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is on the sidelines during the first day of mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 12, with a tight hamstring. 'Obviously, I pushed the wideout group, in particular, a little too hard,' head coach Rex Ryan said.'...'That's a mistake I made.' WRs Jeremy Kerley, Patrick Turner, and Chaz Schilens are also nursing hamstring injuries.
Huddle Up: It's almost comical that no matter where Chaz Schilens' name pops up (hey wait, he's a Jet now?) he is nursing an injury. Holmes? Forget it, he'll be fine.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes pulled himself out of the organized team activities Thursday, June 7, because he believes he was being worked too hard. 'I was talking to the coach, letting him understand it was too many reps today,' Holmes said. 'I've been gone for a while, so I can't be at full tempo like the rest of the guys and where they want us to be at.'
Huddle Up: This story will get way more mileage than it should just because it's the Jets. But it's nothing compared to the approaching media storm surrounding Tebow vs. Sanchez.
