First reception this season
WRPittsburgh Steelers
November 14, 2019
Holton catches one pass for 18 yards in Thursday night's 21-7 loss to Cleveland.
ANALYSIS
The catch was the first this season for Holton, who saw his role increase with game-ending injuries to JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Diontae Johnson (concussion). Holton was targeted seven times after seeing just six targets in six games this season. Even if Smith-Schuster and Johnson are unable to play in Week 12 against the Bengals, Holton is not a high-percentage fantasy option.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Holton dressed for 31 games throughout his first two seasons in the league with the Raiders, logging a career-high nine receptions for 218 yards and three scores during his sophomore campaign in 2017. The Raiders added a few key pieces to their receiving corps this offseason, however, so the additions of Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Ryan Switzer could mean Holton gets left of the 53-man roster at the conclusion of the preseason.
After quarterback Derek Carr called him the most improved player in training camp prior to the 2016 season, Holton caught just two passes for 34 yards on three targets during his rookie campaign as the Raiders' No. 5 receiver. Losing Andre Holmes to free agency won't immediately promote Holton up a notch either, with the Raiders signing fifth-year receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Holton, who recorded 12 tackles on special teams last year, will likely once again be used as a gunner in 2017 with minimal involvement in a crowded offense.
