He has not played since September 29th and doesn't have a timetable to return. One week prior to suffering that injury, he a 153-yard explosion, then the injury completely has knocked him from relevancy.
He sat most of last season with a foot injury and the durability concerns are really starting to pile up. The Jets, and ex-GM Mike Tannenbaum forked over $50 million to Holmes and are still waiting for that investment to come around.
In Holmes's absence, Jeremy Kerley has stepped it up. He had a whopping six third-down conversions against the New England Patriots last week. David Nelson has also risen from the abyss and become a popular option-route guy for quarterback Geno Smith.
Fantasy impact: Holmes is not worth owning in most leagues. Meanwhile, Kerley has been Smith's go-to guy and he's ready to roll this week against a banged-up Bengals secondary. Nelson is a Hail Mary option.
