WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

The Broncos released Andre Holmes, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

Holmes was claimed by Denver toward the end of last season after Buffalo cut him, but the Broncos figure to go in another direction behind the young core of Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton—along with Emmanuel Sanders, who is recovering form his torn Achilles. Holmes will turn 31 in June, and we expect he'll draw interest during free agency.

Andre Holmes catches one pass against the Browns.

Holmes gained five yards on his lone reception in the Broncos' Week 15 loss. This was Holmes' first reception as a Bronco, and the veteran receiver will look to hopefully get more snaps the final two weeks of the season. He's not a recommended fantasy option for finals.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

The Broncos claimed Andre Holmes, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

This comes just a couple hours after Emmanuel Sanders suffered what is believed to be a torn Achilles, so the veteran Holmes could be set for a big role quickly in Denver’s offense. Holmes is not a recommended fantasy pickup yet, though.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

The Bills have released Andre Holmes.

Buffalo is apparently going younger at the position, so Holmes has been released along with former first-round pick (of the Panthers) Kelvin Benjamin. The veteran caught 12 passes for 157 yards this season with the Bills, and other teams will now have a chance to claim him on waivers.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches one pass in Week 10.

Holmes gained 22 yards on his one reception against the Jets. The veteran receiver is a good real-life contributor for the Bills, but he's not a fantasy option right now.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches one pass in Bills' loss.

Holmes gained six yards on his lone reception against the Bears. Holmes is a better real-life contributor to his team than he is a fantasy asset right now.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes plays well in Week 8.

Holmes was targeted three times in the Bills' Monday night loss to the Patriots, catching two passes for 45 yards. The two receptions went for 24 and 21 yards, as he did a great job on his opportunities. Holmes also laid out to attempt to stop a punt from going into the end zone for a touchback, so you love to see that type of effort from players. However, Holmes is a bette real-life asset for the Bills than a fantasy asset.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches one pass in Week 7.

Holmes gained 13 yards on his lone reception agianst the Colts. Holmes is more of a real-life contributor for Buffalo than he is a fantasy option right now.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches 20-yard pass in Week 6 loss.

It was his only reception of the game. Holmes isn't a recommended fantasy option as the No. 3 receiver on a low-volume passing attack.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches two passes in Week 4.

Holmes gained eight yards on his two receptions (three targets) in the loss to Green Bay. The veteran receiver is not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes caught three passes for 29 yards in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Holmes continues to operate as a top-three receiver for Buffalo, but he isn't a recommended fantasy option on a low-volume passing attack.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches 19-yard pass in Week 2 loss.

It was his only reception of the game. Holmes looks locked-in as the team's No. 3 receiver, but he isn't a recommended fantasy option. The Bills take on the Vikings next Sunday.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches lone target in Week 1.

Holmes gained 14 yards on his reception, which came from rookie quarterback Josh Allen. Holmes is not a reliable fantasy option at the moment.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes (neck) has been placed on injured reserve.

Holmes' first season in Buffalo ends with 13 receptions for 120 yards and three touchdowns in ten games. He also contributed on special teams and should have a roster spot with the Bills next season. The former Raider is an underrated talent that would likely be a solid fantasy option in a featured role, but it doesn't appear he'll have that in 2018.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes gets three targets against the Chargers.

Holmes caught one pass for seven yards in the Week 11 loss. Though his role might increase if Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is out longer than this game, Holmes isn't a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches one pass in Week 9.

Holmes' reception went for 16 yards, as it was on an in-breaking route for a first down. With Kelvin Benjamin set to play in Week 10 after missing tonight's game because he just arrived with the team a couple days ago, Holmes may see his role decrease. He'll be a contributor for the Bills, but Holmes is not a recommended fantasy option.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes scores in Bills' win.

This was probably one of Holmes' favorite games of his career, as he led the Bills in receiving and scored against his former Raiders team. Holmes caught three of four targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in the victory, with the score coming on a nice toe-tap catch at the side of the end zone after he ran his route all the way across the end zone to get open. This was Holmes' third touchdown of the season, and the Bills can probably use him more in the red zone area moving forward; but he's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes doesn't catch any passes in Week 5.

Holmes was targeted one time by Tyrod Taylor, but they didn't connect. He might have some nice games with Jordan Matthews (thumb) out, but Holmes is not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches touchdown in Bills' win over the Broncos.

It was a two-yard, second-quarter score, and Holmes finished with two catches for six yards. Only six passes were completed to wide receivers for Buffalo on Sunday, so Holmes did well to come away with a touchdown. He can stay on the waiver wire heading into next Sunday's matchup with the Falcons.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes scores in Bills' Week 1 win over the Jets.

The former Raiders receiver caught a one-yard touchdown in the flat on his only target of the day. He'll probably be a better real life contributor than he will in fantasy, but he should have some good weeks in 2017.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes caught two passes for 11 yards in Thursday night's loss to the Eagles.

The Bills seem to have a pretty fluid wide receiver situation, but Holmes will be no better than the third wideout when Jordan Matthews (sternum) is back on the field.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes starts opposite Sammy Watkins in first preseason game.

It's a good sign for Holmes that he started the game, but he didn't catch any passes before he exited. With Anquan Boldin—who didn't play in the game after just arriving with the team this week—in the mix, Holmes might need to hold him off to keep his current starting position.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Bills receiver Andre Holmes has "stood out" so far, head coach Sean McDermott said.

Holmes is a former Raider that signed with Buffalo in free agency. The big, athletic receiver saw his playing time decrease in Oakland with the additions of Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, but he's a talented player that makes plays when he gets an opportunity. McDermott says he's done a "phenomenal job" on both offense and special teams, and that he's happy with the leadership he's brought to the team with his consistency. As we've stated before, we're fans of Holmes; as is Jon Gruden, who believed Holmes had to get out of Oakland and go somewhere to play a lot, because he can play. Second round pick Zay Jones is the main competition for Holmes grabbing the starting role alongside Sammy Watkins.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes has been "an early standout" at Bills' OTAs.

Holmes was with the Raiders for the last four seasons and struggled to get steady playing time with Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper as the top two receivers. The Bills signed Holmes as a free agent and it might have been one of the better moves in free agency. At 6'4" with very good downfield ability, Holmes might be the guy to step up opposite Sammy Watkins. Rookie second rounder Zay Jones is week-to-week with a knee sprain, so Holmes will have a chance to separate himself early in the offseason activities. As we've stated in the past, Jon Gruden is a fan of Holmes, and thought he just needed an opportunity outside of Oakland. Consider us fans, too. Holmes is someone to watch.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Bills head coach Sean McDermott said he believes the number two receiver behind Sammy Watkins is already on the roster.

Andre Holmes might be that guy. A bit of an afterthought in Oakland, Holmes has a lot of ability. During a game last season, Jon Gruden even noted that Holmes should get out of Oakland and go somewhere he can get more time, because he can play. The Bills could add a receiver in the draft, but as of right now, Holmes could open as the number two opposite Sammy Watkins.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Receiver Andre Holmes is signing with the Bills.

Holmes is a big, athletic receiver that will have a real shot at starting opposite Sammy Watkins in Buffalo. He always seemed to produce was given opportunities in Oakland. Holmes could have deep sleepers appeal in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes is visiting the Bills, according to Mike Garafolo.

There was a bit of a snafu the last couple of days about if Holmes already signed with the Bills. He did not. It seems like it could happen during his visit today, though.

Andre Holmes leads Raiders in receiving against the Texans.

Holmes had four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown in Wild Card matchup. When Michael Crabtree left to be checked for a concussion, Holmes entered the game and made an impact. Jon Gruden argued that Holmes should be looking for a team where he can get more playing time.

Andre Holmes | Free Agent WR

Andre Holmes catches touchdown in Raiders' win over the Colts.

Holmes had three catches for 33 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown was a six-yarder on a play action pass where Derek Carr rolled right and hit Holmest who ran across the endzone to the right corner. Holmes is not on the fantasy radar to end the year against Denver.
