Player Analysis: Entering his 8th season, Holt has proven himself to be one of the most consistent fantasy contributors in football. The removal of Mike Martz should not have too much of an effect, as Scott Linehan intends to keep the vertical passing game in tact. Given his speed, this could be very good news for Holt and his prospective owners. Holt is very elusive, has great hands, and is good in the open field, but tends to try locate defenders too much when going over the middle.

Fantasy Football Impact: Holt is one of the most focused and motivated receivers in the NFL and has the talent to match. Scott Linehan has brought Randy Moss and Chris Chambers to career years in his stints as offensive coordinator in the recent past, and Holt is primed for big year yet again.


Rams blank Raiders 20-0 - 12/17/2006

The St. Louis Rams' much-maligned defense finally found an offense it could dominate. The Rams took advantage of five Oakland turnovers, including two that set up touchdown runs by Steven Jackson, in St. Louis' 20-0 victory over the Raiders. Jackson finished with 127 yards on 31 carries, scoring on runs of 4 yards after Chris Carr fumbled a punt and 19 yards after Andrew Walter threw the first of two interceptions. St. Louis (6-8) got just its second win in nine games. In a season full of historic lows, the Raiders (2-12) reached another in losing their seventh straight game. They also equaled their most losses in a season since Al Davis joined the franchise in 1963. And it was their third shutout loss of the year, including two at home. The Raiders had been shutout at home only once in their history before this season. The Rams weren't much better on offense but didn't turn the ball over and relied on the defense to get the win. St. Louis entered the contest allowing more than 25 points per game but ended up with its first shutout since 2003.


Shipp's three TDs shock Rams, 34-20 - 12/04/2006

The normally soft-spoken Marc Bulger had to speak up: St. Louis had just lost to the Arizona Cardinals at home, and the Rams' mistakes made it "obvious" that some of his teammates are no longer committed. "I know there's some guys in here who don't care," Bulger said in a 34-20 loss to Arizona. Prized by his coaches for his calm demeanor, the quarterback kept his voice down and didn't single out anyone after the Rams were whistled for a season-high 126 yards in penalties. But he said the way the Rams (5-7) have been repeating mistakes throughout the season made it "obvious" that some players had given up on the team. "There's more than one guy in this locker room that could care less that we're losing, or thinks it's OK to make mistakes." Marcel Shipp scored three touchdowns, Edgerrin James had 115 yards rushing and Matt Leinart won for the second time in seven pro starts for Arizona (3-9), which made the most of the Rams' mistakes to win for the first time on the road all season. "I think we're getting better every week," Leinart said. James' 50th career 100-yard rushing games came against the NFL's worst team against the run. It's Arizona's first 100-yard game in more than two seasons since Emmitt Smith got 106 against the Seahawks on Oct. 24, 2004. "It was a normal thing for me for a while," James said. "But when you get here, you see it is a big thing." Bulger threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns, but also had three interceptions to add to woes that contributed to a sixth loss in seven games for the Rams (5-7). Bulger has three touchdown passes and six interceptions the last four games, although one came on a desperation heave on the game's final play. Bulger absolved players at the skill positions, naming Steven Jackson and wide receivers Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce as others who take losing hard. "I'm not pointing finger at certain people because I certainly didn't play perfect and I haven't been playing perfect," Bulger said. "But like I said, I care. What bugs me is that there are some guys who don't care."


Bulger's rally snaps Rams' losing skid - 11/27/2006

It took a crucial stop by the Rams' beleaguered defense and Marc Bulger being nearly perfect on the winning drive to halt St. Louis' five-game losing streak. The Rams (5-6) broke another team's heart for a change on Bulger's 5-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Curtis with 27 seconds to go for a 20-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Twice during the skid they lost in the final minute. "We needed to win in the worst way," Curtis said. "To come out of there and score when we need to gives us a lot of hope for the rest of the season." San Francisco (5-6) totaled 171 yards rushing against the NFL's worst defense against the run, including 134 yards on 21 carries by Frank Gore. He's the fifth player in six weeks to top 100 against the Rams, and totaled 261 yards in two games against St. Louis. Leading 14-13 midway through the fourth quarter, the 49ers marched down the field on a 13-play, 75-yard drive that chewed up more than 7 minutes and included only one pass. The drive screeched to a halt at the 7 when Michael Robinson was stopped for no gain on third-and-1 by Brandon Chillar and Raonall Smith, forcing a 24-yard field goal by Joe Nedney with 3:54 to go. "That was a big moment," Rams middle linebacker Will Witherspoon said. "That was a game-changing moment." Gore was not in the game for the big carry because of an injured right ankle, which coach Mike Nolan described as a bruise. He was taken for X-rays after the game.

Airing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET, the broadcasts will feature a 90-minute fast-paced format complete with original television announcers and cameras. An additional game will be shown on Friday. Nolan wouldn't second-guess his decision not to go for the first down. "I thought about it at the time, running it hard, but we're on the road," Nolan said. "Make it a touchdown game. I wouldn't change anything." Stymied much of the game, Bulger was 9 for 9 for 66 yards during a 12-play, 80-yard drive for the winning score. He finished 23 for 34 for 201 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Bulger was sacked twice, a big improvement after absorbing 11 sacks the previous two weeks. The Rams have a makeshift line, featuring three replacements.


Once again, Brown lifts 'Hawks over Rams - 11/12/2006

The thrilling has seemingly gotten so routine for Josh Brown, he barely reacts to it now. But his Seahawks? They love it -- and Brown. Once again, they jubilantly mobbed each other after their absurdly cool kicker calmly made a 38-yard field goal with nine seconds left as Seattle beat St. Louis 24-22 and seize control of the NFC West. After his second game-winning kick to beat the Rams in less than a month, Brown simply bowed his head into the hug of holder Ryan Plackemeier. The stunned Rams (4-5) simply stared at a fourth consecutive loss. It was Brown's fifth winning field goal for the Seahawks (6-3) since Oct. 2, 2005, when he clanged a potential winner from 47 yards off the left upright at the end of regulation in an overtime loss at Washington. "I'm not shocked I made it," Brown said. "I think I would have been more shocked had I missed. "It's definitely not an arrogance thing. ... We prepare like this every day." It all forced Seahawks defensive end Grant Wistrom to grudgingly praise his kicker. "This is the third game he's won this season, isn't it?" Wistrom said of Brown, correctly. "He's pretty important. "But I don't want to give him too much credit. He thinks he's pretty good already." Brown probably would not have gotten his chance without Nate Burleson's first Seattle heroics.


Chiefs follow Johnson to win over Rams - 11/06/2006

After backing up pregame braggadocio about dealing out the hits rather than taking them, Larry Johnson had a lot more to say. Johnson rushed for 172 yards, becoming the second straight running back to punish the St. Louis Rams defense in the Kansas City Chiefs' 31-17 victory. It wasn't nearly enough. "I'm a little disappointed because I feel we did leave 200 yards of rushing on that field," Johnson said. "The way we were going out there and just pushing them backward and shakings things up, we should have done even more." The Chiefs defense forced three early turnovers against a team that emphasizes ball security, and Kansas City capitalized en route to a 17-point cushion. "You can't put Kansas City in a short field like that," Rams offensive tackle Orlando Pace said. "It makes it tough on us and a lot easier on those guys." Jared Allen stripped Marc Bulger on a sack and recovered Steven Jackson 's fumble for the Chiefs, who have won three in a row for the first time under new coach Herman Edwards.


Chargers' offense at it again in 38-24 win - 10/29/2006

For those who might have been thinking there was something wrong with LaDainian Tomlinson, there isn't. Tomlinson reminded everyone just how good he is when he rushed for a season-high 183 yards and scored three more touchdowns to lead the San Diego Chargers to a 38-24 win over the St. Louis Rams. 183 yards and two touchdowns on the ground from LaDainian Tomlinson sparked the Chargers. "So many questions start to come when you don't have 100 yards," said Tomlinson, who has scored 11 touchdowns in helping the Chargers to a 5-2 record. "People start to wonder, are you getting old or have you lost a step? For me, it's all motivation. "If I lost a step and had a day like this today, I'd hate to see if I was a young man what I would have done today with the kind of holes I ran through." Tomlinson surpassed 8,000 yards rushing for his six-year career, and tied his boyhood idol, Emmitt Smith, as the second-fastest players to score 90 touchdowns, in 86 games. The quickest was Jim Brown in 81 games. Tomlinson, who carried 25 times, reached 90 career TDs by scoring on the ground to cap the Chargers' first two drives. He added his 91st when he caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Philip Rivers with 3:58 left in the game.


Williams No. 1 in receiving yards - 10/17/2006
Source: Detroit News

Roy Williams has soared to the top of the NFL's wide receivers in one category, but the Lions' 1-5 record gives him no reason to celebrate. Williams went over the 100-yard receiving mark for the third time in four games with 161 yards in Sunday's 20-17 victory over Buffalo. Williams leads the league with 552 receiving yards, and he is tied for fifth with 36 receptions. Williams looks at some of the receivers below him on the yardage list, such as Marvin Harrison of the Colts and Torry Holt of the Rams, and wishes the Lions would match those teams' won-lost record. "It's fun, it's good," Williams said of his personal stats. "If you look at the other receivers -- Marvin Harrison, they're undefeated. Torry Holt, they're 4-2. "They're having good seasons, but their team is also doing well, as well. This offense is playing well, but we're 1-5, and that's not very good."


Rams fire final shot, outlast Lions 41-34 - 10/01/2006

ST. LOUIS (Oct. 1, 2006) -- With the architect of the "Greatest Show" on the other side of the turf, new St. Louis Rams coach Scott Linehan showed his team can win a shootout, too. The Rams rallied from behind three times, then benefited from an overturned pass-interference penalty in the waning seconds to beat Detroit 41-34. In a shootout in St. Louis, Marc Bulger led his team to victory with 328 yards and three TDs. "Sometimes in a game like this, it's who gets the ball last," Rams quarterback Marc Bulger said. The victory spoiled the return of Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz, who was head coach in St. Louis for six seasons. Detroit (0-4) built a 34-33 lead before the Rams (3-1) got the ball with 4:42 to play at their own 44. Seven plays later, on third down at the 5, Bulger threw to the right side and Isaac Bruce wriggled into the end zone for his first touchdown of the season with 1:56 to play.


Brotherly love? - 09/28/2006
Source: The Detroit News

The Holt brothers have had Oct. 1 circled on their calendars. After all, it's not every day brothers get to go one-on-one, at least not in the NFL. Terrence , a safety for the Lions, will be trying to stop older brother Torry , a wide receiver for the Rams. "It's kind of strange but good because we are so close and it will be meaningful for both of us," Terrence said. "There are a lot of brothers who play in the NFL, but most don't have to directly play against each other. We do, and that's a real unique challenge."


Rams pick off Warner, nip Cardinals 16-14 - 09/24/2006

In a game filled with turnovers, the last one went to St. Louis. So did the victory. Kurt Warner, who threw three interceptions, fumbled a snap at the Rams 18 with 1:46 to play and Will Witherspoon recovered to allow St. Louis to hold on to beat the Arizona Cardinals 16-14 Sunday. The Cardinals' Antonio Smith recovered Rams quarterback Marc Bulger's fumble at the St. Louis 30 with 1:58 to play and Edgerrin James carried three times to the 18. But Warner dropped Alex Stepanovich's snap and Witherspoon jumped on the ball for St. Louis (2-1). It was a fitting end for a game that featured six turnovers, four by the Cardinals. Bulger was 21-of-31 for 309 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions, and Warner was 19-of-28 for 256 yards and one score. Torry Holt caught eight passes for 120 yards, including a 9-yarder for St. Louis' lone touchdown. Anquan Boldin had 10 receptions for 129 yards for Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: Holt owners should have no reservations about starting him this week.
