Holmes has been out of the lineup since Sep. 29 and this is the second season in a row in which he's been injured for more than a month. The worst part is that before he went down he was playing well and racked up a 154-yard, one-score game on Sep. 22 against the Bills.
The Jets have been alternating their winning and losing and it has a lot to do with their passing game. Quarterback Geno Smith still hasn't quite gotten on the same page with his receivers and he hasn't found a go-to guy. Jeremy Kerley seems to be the closest thing to it, but he had just three catches for 27 yards last week against the Bengals. Meanwhile David Nelson has started to heat up, catching eight balls on 12 targets in Week 8.
Fantasy impact: Obviously, Holmes should be cut while Nelson is a decent plug-and-play guy for owners that need a receiver. Nelson has a decent upside against a team that gives up a lot of points.
