What are your guys thoughts on him? Very favorable schedule coming up... AZ, at NYJ, at SF, CHI, MIA, at AZ, SEA, SF... that looks pretty nice. But geez, is he the second best WR on that team now? OL still has issues...

specifically would you rate him above or below Ginn and/or Roy Williams going forward?

Jeez... Torry, where have you gone!!!???

 
My thoughts:

Holt is definitely not the second best WR on the Rams and I would rate him well above Ginn and Roy Williams. I would actually rate Holt in my top 15 going forward and here's why:

The schedule, as you mentioned, is unbelievable. It's crazy to think that a guy this talented gets two games each against AZ and SF plus gets the Jets, the Bears, the Dolphins and the Seahawks. It's a money schedule. Secondly, and most importantly, the emergence of Avery can only mean good things for Holt. One or two weeks is a fluke, but three straight weeks of good numbers means something. Teams will now have to pay attention to Avery. Instead of facing constant double teams and some triple teams, Holt should now face only double teams with some single coverage. It will make a huge difference in his production.

 
yeah thats totally valid... I was just thinking of trading for him... and I was kinda surprised to see his 8ppg average in a ppr league. Yikes! but yeah he kinda seems like money to me from here on out. I know the Bulger controversy... but havent seen much of the Rams, and couldnt figure out his genuinely weak ppg.

His stats cant get much worse! So now might be a buying opportunity with him. I have him on my team, but Im not sure if i would start him over Roy Williams who i also have. He already has 1 TD in a totally new offense and backup QB. My WR's Marshall, Breaston,Colston,Dante Hall(return yards) Roy Will. and i have to start 3 ..so its between hall, roy and tory
 
Not to be a contrarian, but I think at this point of the season, it's clear to me at least that Avery that will be the money play from here on out.

The Rams have turned around their season and are at least competitive again. And still Holt is a no-show. He may have one or two great games, but Avery will be consistently better.

It's a heckuva a good rookie class all-around. Usually rookie WRs are notoriously inconsistent; a Boldin or Moss debut comes along once every five years or more. Edwards was the 3rd pick in the draft and virtually unstartable. Megatron put up modest numbers last year - and it was the 17th best FF rookie WR season ever.But this year...DeSean Jackson, Eddie Royal, and now Donnie Avery. Strange season.Avery has been explosive, and it's hard to see that changing anytime soon - not like that 4.2 speed (junior year - combine and pro day times were slower a year later because of injury) is going to disappear.Torry Holt has been a huge part of my FF success for years; drafted him four times, traded for him twice. This year I gave up Matt Forte after week one. That has been so painful my #### still hurts.Holt will have a good game or two down the stretch, but if you check his splits, I wouldn't bank on it coming on the road. Good spot start as a WR3 for the home games. Wish it were not so, but that is the reality of 2008.
 
Something I think some folks are overlooking is the play of Jackson. When he's playing well, it should help open up the passing game more. That coupled with the emergence of the rookie should allow Holt to get back to at least respectable. I think some of his low production early in the season was in part due to the head coach and crappy team play as a whole.
