Santonio Holmes is listed as probable on the New York Jets injury report with the rib injury he's been dealing with this preseason. We break down the fantasy implications.

Santonio Holmes is listed as probable on the New York Jets injury report with the rib injury he's been dealing with this preseason. As Rex Ryan continually stated throughout the summer, Holmes appears to be on track to play without limitations when the Jets battle the Bills on Sunday afternoon. Holmes is still New York's No. 1 wide receiver.

Fantasy Impact: Santonio Holmes is not nearly the fantasy commodity he once was. The quarterback situation in New York has a lot to do with that. Mark Sanchez will once again be starting, and the Jets' starting offense didn't record a single touchdown under his command. Meanwhile, Tim Tebow is likely to get snaps as well, which even further limits Holmes. Don't bother putting Holmes into your fantasy lineup.
