Santonio Holmes injury update: Ruled out, fantasy owners should look elsewhere

Rich Schultz

Santonio Holmes will miss his second game in a row with a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes is officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Holmes did not practice all week and will be missing his second straight game with a hamstring injury. He suffered the injury in the Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans and hasn't practiced since. There is no timetable for his return and he could be out for at least a month with the lingering hamstring injury. Holmes has been a fantasy dud this season, recording just 10 catches for 243 yards and a touchdown in four games.

Fantasy impact: Owners in 10- and 12-team leagues should think about dropping Holmes. He's notoriously slow to recover from injury and isn't producing enough to justify a roster spot outside the deepest of leagues. Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley will be the starting wideouts for New York this week. They are boom-or-bust WR4 options against the Steelers defense.
