September 7, 2019
Holton was promoted to the active roster Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Holton was on the team's practice squad, and he'll serve as added depth for Sunday's game versus the Patriots. The 28-year-old has suited up for 32 games in his NFL career, but he rarely plays offensive snaps. Expect Holton to stick to special teams for now.

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.
