James Jones, Rod Streater named Week 3 preseason starters


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson revealed Tuesday that James Jones and Rod Streater will be the team's starting wide receivers for Friday's preseason game against Green Bay, Comcast SportsNet California reports.

The designation is notable in that most teams use the third preseason game as a dry run for the regular season. Jones started over Andre Holmes in the Raiders' last preseason game as well but caught just two of his seven targets for 42 yards.


James Jones gets the start over Andre Holmes in preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Raiders receiver James Jones leaped over Andre Holmes in the starting lineup Friday against the Lions in preseason action.

Jones played the entire first half with Matt Schaub and Derek Carr under center. He was targeted seven times and finished with two catches for 42 yards.

Holmes came off the bench in the second half to work with Carr and Matt McGloin. He caught two of the five passes thrown his way for 29 yards.

Andre Holmes: Oakland's "most consistent downfield threat"


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Raiders receiver Andre Holmes has become Matt Schaub's "most consistent downfield threat," reports the Associated Press. The 6-4, 210-pound Holmes is listed as a starter opposite Rod Streater, and he led the team by averaging 17.2 yards per catch last year.

The report calls Holmes the closest thing Oakland has to a No. 1 receiver. "It's a good feeling but I still look to improve in many areas," Holmes said. "I can't be complacent. I know that I have a lot to work on and that's what I'm trying to do right now in this camp."

Holmes hauled in two bombs from Schaub in Tuesday's practice. "A long strider, has a big burst up the field, can separate and then go up and get the football ... exactly what you want from a receiver," Schaub said. "I'm excited to see what he can do in game action. He's a big, big threat for us."


James Jones doesn't crack starting lineup


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) The Raiders' initial depth chart lists receiver James Jones on the second team, behind starters Rod Streater and Andre Holmes. Greg Little joins Jones on the second team.

Denarius Moore and Juron Criner are the third-string wideouts.

Jones had a career-high 817 receiving yards last year with the Packers. He's caught 24 touchdown passes over the past three seasons.


Schaub: Andre Holmes has potential


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2014) Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub likes what he sees from receiver Andre Holmes, reports Comcast Sports Net.

"He's a long strider, a big guy who can stretch the field vertically and go up and get the football," Schaub said. "Obviously, his height and his ability to adjust in the air are some of his strengths, as well as some of the intermediate routes. Just being able to get to the top of his route, come strong out of his cut, he can be a guy that can stretch the field for us."

Holmes, 6-foot-4, has been working with the first-team offense during offseason workouts. He will compete for a starting job with James Jones, Rod Streater and Denarius Moore.


Report: Andre Holmes overtaking Denarius Moore


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Andre Holmes appears to be passing Denarius Moore in the battle for the Raiders' No. 3 receiver job, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. James Jones and Rod Streater are the top two targets.

In the final seven games last season, Holmes caught 25 passes for 431 yards and a touchdown. Moore caught four touchown passes in the first six weeks, just one after that. He has not exceeded 750 receiving yards in any of his first three seasons.


Raiders get contribution from several role players in Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Raiders received minor offensive contributions from several role players during Sunday's loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Andre Holmes finished as the team's third leading receiver with three catches on eight targets for 38 yards. Mychal Rivera caught only two of his four targets for 23 yards while Marcel Reece caught his only targeted pass for an 11-yard gain in a 34-14 defeat.

Andre Holmes leads the way


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Receiver Andre Holmes led the Raiders with five catches for 71 yards in the loss at San Diego. He drew a team-high eight targets, three more than any other wideout.

Holmes has 19 catches for 328 yards and a touchdown over his last four games. He'll play Denver in Week 17.


Andre Holmes scores first career TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes continued his recent success as he got back in the end zone Sunday against the Chiefs in Week 15.

Holmes caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Matt McGloin in the third quarter, his first career touchdown. He also contributed with a circus one-handed grab for 28 yards in the third. He finished the game with four catches for 58 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in a 56-31 defeat.

Holmes has 257 yards and a touchdown over his last three games. He'll look to stay productive in Week 16 against the Chargers in San Diego.

Andre Holmes has somewhat of letdown after career game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes had a decent performance Week 14 at N.Y. Jets, but he came nowhere close to to the career-high 136 receiving yards he posted Week 13 at Dallas. Holmes posted 63 yards on three catches during a 37-27 loss Sunday.

Holmes didn't get his first catch until Terrelle Pryor entered the game on the team's third offensive drive late in the first quarter. Pryor targeted Holmes on a 23-yard pass into the end zone later on the drive, but it was a bad throw by Pryor, giving Holmes no chance to make a play.

Matt McGloin took over the offense on the next drive and then threw an interception on a pass intended for Holmes. Holmes really didn't make an impact until he had a 40-yard catch-and-run to the Raiders' 48-yard line late in the second quarter.

Holmes' final catch wouldn't come until the last play of the third quarter. He was targeted just once in the fourth quarter, which was a 15-yard pass into the end zone. Unfortunately, McGloin's pass was badly underthrown and nearly picked off. Holmes finished with seven targets in the loss.

The Raiders are back in action Week 15 vs. Kansas City.


Andre Holmes worth an add, but he is worth starting?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) After a breakout performance Week 13 at Dallas, Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes is among the most-added wide receivers in Fantasy leagues heading into Week 14. Now the question beckons: What will he do for an encore performance against the Jets?

Wide receivers have had fairly good success against New York. They are averaging 25.7 Fantasy points per game, which is tied for the fifth-highest average. Wide receivers are averaging 186.8 receiving yards and have totaled 15 touchdowns in 12 games against New York.

Denarius Moore isn't expected back Week 14, which bodes well for Holmes' Fantasy value. What also bodes well is that quarterback Matt McGloin trusts the third-year receiver. McGloin said of Holmes, "He's definitely a guy I look for to try to get the ball to. He does good things when he gets the ball in his hands."

Holmes is certainly worth a flier in deep formats. He's an option as a third receiver or flex option Week 14 because of the favorable matchup. No. 2 receivers like Mike Williams, Aaron Dobson, Emmanuel Sanders, Marvin Jones, Marquise Goodwin, T.J. Graham, Jacoby Jones and Brian Hartline have all totaled double-digit Fantasy points against the Jets.


Andre Holmes earns the trust of his quarterback


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes used a national stage on Thanksgiving to have his breakout performance, and it appears he's carved out a role in the Oakland offense.

"He's a good player," Raiders quarterback Matthew McGloin said, per SFGate.com. "He works hard. He goes about his business day in and day out. ... He's definitely a guy I look for to try to get the ball to. He does good things when he gets the ball in his hands."

Holmes is an undrafted third-year player that bounced around before finally finding a home with his fourth team.

"I use my strengths a lot more than I did three years ago," Holmes said. "Playing bigger and making sure I come down with those 50-50 balls. When I was a rookie, it was more like a 20-80 ball."


Andre Holmes breaks out on Thanksgiving with career outing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) With Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore sidelined a second straight game with a shoulder injury, wide receiver Andre Holmes stole the show in the Oakland passing game Week 13 at Dallas with a career performance.

Holmes entered Thursday with just five catches for 76 yards in 12 career NFL games. He broke out against the Cowboys for seven catches for 136 yards -- both team highs. Holmes, who was targeted a team-high 11 times, didn't have a catch less than 10 yards and had four catches of at least 20 yards.

Holmes came close to his first career touchdown in the second quarter, as initially he was given a 16-yard touchdown at the 10:33 mark. But the call was reversed after a replay showed Holmes knee was down before he stretched the football across the goal line. One play later, Rashad Jennings had a 1-yard touchdown run.

Holmes' longest reception came on a 35-yard catch-and-run to the Cowboys' 21-yard line in the fourth quarter. Holmes was wide open on a slant route across the middle of the field and ran for some time before being brought down by a Dallas defender.

Holmes was targeted on a 27-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter, but the pass was badly thrown out of bounds by Matt McGloin. The Raiders are back in action Week 14 at N.Y. Jets.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
