Holmes did not see a target in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Raiders wide receivers combined for 18 targets, with the bulk of them split between Denarius Moore (8) and Rod Streater (7). James Jones saw three and Holmes was shut out. It's a disappointing development for the 26-year-old Holmes, whose size-speed combo had established him on the radar in deeper leagues. Until he shows some sort of connection with rookie Derek Carr, however, Holmes can be left alone.

Holmes caught two passes for 27 yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Packers. While the numbers were fine, all three of Holmes' targets came with the second-team offense, and Denarius Moore worked as the clear No. 3 receiver. Despite his excellent physical tools, Holmes will likely open this season as the fourth or fifth wide receiver in a shaky offense.

One week after starting, Holmes wasn't targeted until late in the third quarter of Friday's preseason game against the Lions. Holmes caught two passes for 42 yards on seven targets, but more importantly, he was invisible in the first half. A week ago, there was speculation that he might challenge James Jones for playing time. Now, that looks far less likely, and he may just be fighting for a role as the third or fourth receiver. Though he had a quiet game, Denarius Moore worked as the No. 3 wide receiver Friday night.

Holmes and Rod Streater started Friday's preseason opener against the Vikings, Scott Bair of CSNCalifornia.com reports. Holmes failed to catch both of his targets, and Streater didn't even get any looks. Though Holmes is listed as a starter and got the nod Friday, James Jones may very well be the starter come Week 1. Meanwhile, the likes of Denarius Moore, Greg Little, Juron Criner and Brice Butler seem to be competing for the No. 4 and 5 roles.

Matt Schaub believes WR Andre Holmes is "a guy that can stretch the field for us." Holmes, 26, is someone to monitor. He stands 6-foot-4, 210 with 4.45-4.51 speed and averaged 17.2 yards on 25 receptions last season. "He's a long strider, a big guy who can stretch the field vertically and go up and get the football," described Schaub. With James Jones nursing injuries, Holmes ran with Oakland's first-team offense during OTAs, lining up across from Rod Streater.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Andre Holmes "seems to be" passing Denarius Moore as the Raiders' No. 3 receiver. James Jones and Rod Streater would appear to be Nos. 1 and 2. Holmes cam on strong over the latter half of last season, wrapping up his second NFL season with 25 catches for 431 yards (17.2 YPR) and one touchdown. He was Oakland's best receiver over the final month. Moore is entering the final year of his rookie deal. The coaching staff has grown tired of his inconsistency. We wouldn't be surprised if Moore was traded. Holmes is worth a late-round flier in re-draft.

Andre Holmes had three catches for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Broncos. He was targeted eight times in the passing game. Holmes had been the Raiders' best receiver over the last four weeks, but took a step back with Terrelle Pryor at quarterback. He finishes his second NFL season with 25 catches, 431 yards, and one touchdown. Holmes will be back at a $645,000 salary in 2014.

Andre Holmes had five catches for 71 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Chargers. Holmes led the Raiders in receiving and made some athletic catches again this week. He rotated with Denarius Moore in two-wide sets and finished with a team-high eight targets. Holmes dropped an easy touchdown in the end-zone late in the second quarter, but he was clearly Oakland's best receiver. He'll look to finish the season strong in Week 17 against the Broncos.

Andre Holmes caught four passes for 58 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Chiefs. Holmes continues to open eyes with freakish plays on a weekly basis. This time, it was an insane one-handed catch that went for 28 yards on the sideline. He also added his first career NFL touchdown. Holmes will be very difficult to trust in Week 16 because he's rotating in with Denarius Moore, but the Dynasty appeal here is strong. Holmes, a former member of the Cowboys practice squad, has made more "wow" plays in the last month than Miles Austin has in three years.
