ESPN is reporting that Torry Holt has agreed to a three-year contract with the Jacksonville Jagaurs.  The contract has accelerators that will pay him more if he performs well. 
The move is great for Jacksonville and QB David Garrard.  His top target, Matt “Crackman” Jones was cut because he couldn’t stay clean and sober.  Reggie Williams also had run-ins with the law and won’t return.  Jacksonville will still have to address the position in the upcoming NFL Draft because the cupboard is pretty bare and Holt, at 32, is not a long-term answer.
Holt’s fantasy value takes a hit as he joins a team with a Run First mentality.  If his knee holds up though, they still can produce decent fantasy wideouts.  When he played last year, Crackman was solid.  Same with Reggie Williams a couple years ago.  Holt’s other primary choice was Tennessee, which is pretty much the same smell.  Heavy on the run, heavy on the D.

  1. Good job analyzing the Holt situation. He’s obviously slowing down and is no longer a #1 fantasy option. He could be a decent #2 or a really good #3 on your roster.
    If he stays healthy, David Garrard’s value goes up immediately, as does MJD’s.
    The Jags still need some help at WR, but now if they draft someone early and have Holt on the otherside, Jacksonville could have an interesting offensive.
