Andre Holmes is not a well known name around the NFL, or fantasy circles.  Undrafted in 2011, out of a small Division II school Hillside College, Holmes finally stuck in Oakland after bouncing around the league.  When given an opportunity last season, Holmes shined racking up 431 receiving yards in a limited six weeks of game action.  At 6’4 Holmes can run a sub 4.5 40 yard dash, giving him all the physical tools to succeed in the NFL.  Holmes is competing with former Brown Greg Little, along with veteran Raiders Denarius Moore and Rod Streater for the starting receiver spot next to James Jones, who was previously in Green Bay.  Head Coach Dennis Allen recently released the first depth chart of training camp, and Holmes was listed on the first team.  This of course could change a lot from now until the regular season begins, but it is a positive start for Holmes.  With an average draft position (ADP) of the #77 wide receiver drafted, Holmes will be worth a late round draft pick in 10+ person leagues.
