Holt's Value?

Postby Lucky7 » Thu Oct 16, 2008 8:31 pm

Does anyone think that Holt is worth holding onto anymore in non-ppr leagues?

I know this isnt the trade thread but to give an idea of the value in my league:

Ive offered Hester/S Moss for Holt/Cooley and it is being contemplated...
QB- Vick
RBs- Forte, Sproles, Martin, K Smith, Ronnie Brown
WRs- Welker, D-Jax, Britt, Mike Williams, Lance Moore, LaFell
TE- Gonzo
K- Jason Hanson
Def- Buf D

Considering Orlando Pace is sitting out this week (and hopefully that's it for the Rams) Bulger isn't going to have enough time to get the ball out to whoever. Still, I don't think Holt is droppable but you can certainly try to sell as low as possible to get a warm body. His name still brings people to attention, especially if you're offering him for a player at a level of Kevin Walter or Vincent Jackson.

If you can get anyone who is gaining yards with a somewhat capable QB behind a capable O-Line, you do it. The other guy should pull the trigger.

Holt has dropped to the guy on the bubble on my roster. Any further drop and he's on waivers. I had no interest from anyone when I tried to trade him.

As mentioned above, Pace's injury really hurts the Rams Offensive line. Bulger may be running for cover. I play DEFs based on weekly match ups since I waited until near the end of the draft to grab one and I may play the Cowboys strictly based on Pace's injury. Should be some sacks and maybe a fumble or INT or two coming from the pressure on Bulger. That pressure may make up for the fact that the Cowboys' two starting CBs are out.

If Holt doesn't perform really well this week, I think he has very little or no value for the remainder of the year. It's go time or go time.

Will Holt turn it around when Pace returns?

Probably not. He hasn't done much so far this year. The Rams are such a poor team that he is double covered by most DEF and even when open doesn't get the ball much.

Wow...i think Holt is a decent buy low. Their bye week is done and they don't have a tough passing defense left on the schedule (pass listed first, overall listed second, i.e. Dallas has the 17th best pass def but is 10th overall on defense):

Week 7 - Dal (17, 10)
Week 8 - @NE (12, 15)
Week 9 - Ari (18, 14)
Week 10 - @NYJ (28, 11)
Week 11 - @SF (20, 26)
Week 12 - Chi (27, 12)
Week 13 - Mia (29, 18)
Week 14 - @Ari (18, 14)
Week 15 - Sea (22, 27)
Week 16 - SF (20, 26)
Week 17 - @Atl (24, 25) (not used in most leagues)

Only NE is even in the top HALF of passing defenses (defined by yards per game)...I'd say buy on the cheap (if possible). Their line was terrible last year and he still got 93/1189/7.

I agree with Balco unless Holt doesn't show up against the Cowpies Sunday. If he cannot get open and used vs the beat-up Dallas secodary I don't know that he will ever be featured enough to be worth persuing.
