Homes is listed as probable, and should play Sunday when the Jets take on the Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

Santonio Holmes is listed as probable for Sunday's game between the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. Holmes has been dealing with back, ribs and hamstring injuries throughout the preseason, but he was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. He is expected to play Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis: Holmes should be full-go for Sunday's game, despite a litany of nagging ailments. He has a good matchup against a relatively weak Bills secondary. Whether he is reliable fantasy option depends on your confidence in what was an anemic Jets offense during the preseason. Holmes is ranked as the No. 44-best fantasy receiver in standard leagues by SB Nation heading into Week 1.
