From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 29): Holmes has had two obstacles to production removed with Denarius Moore's demotion and Rod Streater's injury. He's inconsistent, but Holmes has big play upside, and he is worth picking up even heading into a bye because of his size/speed combination's potential for fireworks.

Week 5: bye week

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs HOU (7 / 5 / 45 / 0 rec)

Holmes was much more involved in the offense, but mostly just in garbage time. Four of his catches came on the team's final drive. He did show good footwork on the left sideline for a 15 yard gain on that drive.

2014 Week 3 vs NE (2 / 1 / 29 / 0 rec)

Holmes had multiple miscommunications with Carr throughout the day and his quarterback showed visible frustration on more than one occasion. He also had two of the biggest plays of the game. The first was a catch in between two defenders for a 29 yard gain that set up a Raiders field goal. The second was another deep target where Holmes drew a pass interference and set the Raiders up with 1st and goal with a minute remaining in the game. He's was the primary deep target but must get in sync with Carr.

2014 Week 4 vs MIA (12 / 5 / 74 / 1 rec)

Holmes had a couple of nice catches in traffic form Carr but really took off once Matt McGloin took over. His only mistake of the game came on a high post from McGloin that Holmes should have hauled in. Instead it bounced off of his hands for an interception. He did catch a crossing route from McGloin later in the game that was thrown behind him and then beat his man to the sideline for a first down. Holmes TD was a product of a nice pump fake by McGloin and a breakdown in coverage from the Dolphins. The result was Holmes catching a 22 yard touchdown in stride wide open in the end zone.

Raiders | Andre Holmes shines in loss (Sun Sep 28, 11:37 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Andre Holmes had five receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Our View: Holmes' touchdown game in garbage time, but he did show some good chemistry with backup QB Matt McGloin last year, so if Derek Carr is going to miss time, Holmes could be worth a stash coming out of the bye. With Denarius Moore falling out of favor and Rod Streater out for a while, Holmes could have no matter who the quarterback is because of his size and speed.

Raiders | Andre Holmes to play more? (Wed Sep 24, 11:18 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Andre Holmes might get a chance to play more with WR Rod Streater (foot) sidelined. 'We've got confidence in Andre, when we put him in the game, will go out and make some plays for us,' head coach Dennis Allen said. 'He made a couple plays for us in the game the other day.'

Our View: This is something to keep an eye on going forward. The Raiders are looking for playmakers on offense, and Holmes has the speed to get by the defense in a hurry. QB Derek Carr said he likes his chemistry with Holmes.
