Santonio Holmes had a relatively quiet day in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes had a middling performance against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, hauling in four catches for 68 yards as the Jets routed the Bills 48-28.

Fantasy Impact: Holmes led the team with eight targets, but could only convert on half of those while rookie teammate Stephen Hill stole the show on Sunday with two touchdowns. Fantasy owners have to be frustrated that Holmes couldn't get in on the scoring in a blowout victory, and with Hill's big day, it's an open question as to whether he's even the best WR on his team anymore. The Jets play Pittsburgh in Week 2.
