Holmes (neck) won't practice Friday and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Given that Holmes is a low-volume option in a modest passing offense, his absence in Week 16 is more of a hit to the Bills' depth at wideout than it is to fantasy players. Assuming Kelvin Benjamin (knee) plays Sunday, he'll head the Bills wideout corps this weekend along with Zay Jones and Deonte Thompson.

Holmes (neck) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.
EDGE Analysis
Holmes hasn't caught more than one pass since Week 8 and none of his three TDs this season have come since then. As a low-volume option in a modest passing offense, he's not on the fantasy radar as Sunday's game against the Patriots approaches.

Holmes (neck) isn't practicing Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Holmes battled a stiff neck last week and missed one practice as a result, but ultimately received clearance to play in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Dolphins. With the wideout experiencing no reported setbacks in that contest, it's possible that his absence from Wednesday's session is just for precautionary purposes while he continues to nurse some minor soreness.

Holmes (neck) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after practicing fully Friday.
EDGE Analysis
Holmes isn't a high-volume option in the Buffalo offense and though the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder does score the occasion red zone TD (overall, he's tallied three in 13 games to date), he's not a high-percentage fantasy lineup option in Week 15, even with fellow big-bodied wideout Kelvin Benjamin still dealing with a knee issue that has him listed as questionable for Sunday's contest.

Holmes, who missed Wednesday's practice after waking up with a neck problem, is back on the field Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
It looks like Holmes will be out there for Sunday's crucial game against the Dolphins, but he's well down the pecking order as the fifth or sixth option in the passing game. Other than a a 3-51-1 outing in Week 7, Holmes hasn't posted more than two catches or 18 yards in any other game this season.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Holmes won't practice Wednesday due to a stiff neck, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Holmes likely picked up the injury in the Bills' 13-7 overtime victory over the Colts on Sunday. If the wideout is able to put in at least a limited practice Thursday or Friday, he'll likely gain clearance to suit up Week 15 against the Dolphins, but don't expect Holmes to hold a major role in the Bills' passing attack. He's been targeted just four times over the Bills' last five games, making one reception for seven yards.

Holmes caught one of three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 54-24 loss to the Chargers.
EDGE Analysis
Holmes finished third among Buffalo receivers with 39 offensive snaps on Sunday following Kelvin Benjamin's knee injury. He didn't make the most of the opportunities, but it's hard to judge any Bills target given Nathan Peterman's historically bad debut. Holmes scored twice in the first three weeks of the season, but has just one touchdown since and just one game all year with more than two catches. He might see an uptick in usage in Benjamin's temporary absence, but there are too many questions for comfort in Buffalo right now.

Holmes only saw nine offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Saints while not receiving a single target.
EDGE Analysis
Even with rookie Zay Jones out with an ankle injury, Holmes is at best serving as a No. 4 receiver behind newcomer Kelvin Benjamin, Jordan Matthews and Deonte Thompson. There was actually a chance the Bills would cut Holmes last week, as a combination of releases to fringe players would have netted the team a third-rounder based on offseason activity. In the end, the Bills like what they have and will stick with the veteran Holmes as a depth receiver.

Holmes' new teammate Kelvin Benjamin, acquired in a trade with the Panthers on Tuesday, will not make his team debut Thursday against the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports via a source.
EDGE Analysis
While the two starting spots will likely go to Jordan Matthews and rookie Zay Jones, Holmes has been sprinkled in all season and does lead the team with three TD catches. While we wouldn't advocate using him unless you're in some crazy deep league, he probably is the best bet to catch a red-zone TD until the hulking Benjamin gets up to speed.

Holmes caught three of four targets for 51 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-14 win over the Raiders.
EDGE Analysis
Holmes got his team on the board with a six-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. He caught just two more passes the rest of the way, including one for a 34-yard gain, but that was enough to lead the team in receiving in what was another run-heavy effort. With three receiving touchdowns this season, Holmes has an opportunity to assume a larger role on a team desperate for playmakers on the outside. It remains to be seen if he can take advantage, with his next opportunity coming Thursday against the Jets.
