Santonio Holmes Traded To New York Jets
In shocking fashion the Steelers parted ways with their star wide receiver Santonio Holmes for a fifth round pick to the Jets. One can only guess this move was made by Steelers management to make a statement that bad conduct off the field will not be tolerated.
Holmes is expected to receive a four game suspension and this was probably the final straw for Steelers management.
Fantasy Effect For The Jets
Because of his pass catching skills, the Jets will may be more inclined to keep Holmes in the long term and move Edwards after this season.
Look for the Jets to be talked about as a Super Bowl contender for this season but don’t be surprised if various players’ struggle in fantasy football. With so many options to throw the football too and run the football with, this team should spread the ball out.
Specific skill players won’t receive enough opportunities weekly to be strong fantasy options.
Fantasy Effect For The Steelers
Second year receiver Mike Wallace will receive a bump in fantasy value this coming year. At this time, he is the one receiver on the team that can stretch the field and fill in as the teams deep threat needs.
Hines Ward should still be a good fantasy option, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the team does get back to running the football in2010.
Look for Rashard Mendenhall to receive plenty of work this up coming season.
