The New York Jets had little trouble on Monday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins and wide receiver Santonio Holmes was a key contributor. Holmes was only targeted four times by Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, but he hauled in three receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown on those limited opportunities. A twelve point fantasy outing likely helped a few of you out there.
Sanchez is not exactly a great fantasy quarterback, and it appears to drag down Holmes to some extent. Holmes is talented enough to retain much of his fantasy value, but as long as Sanchez is not targeting him more, he will not be a fantastic fantasy option. Good enough that you have to start him every week, but you won't get many monster performances. It's not the end of the world, but it can be a little frustrating.
The Jets host the San Diego Chargers next week before getting a bye in week eight. The Chargers defense has struggled a bit at times this season so we'll see if Sanchez and Holmes can take advantage.
