The Greatest Show on Turf Comes to an End
Last year the Rams proved again why their organization is a complete joke. Not only did they fail to rebuild the offensive line, but the coaches didn't even try to involve Holt in the offense.
If anything, this lack of production in Torry's final year killed his trade value for the organization.
This offseason St. Louis tried trading Holt, but no takers were found. It's not that teams did not think No. 81 was still good, it was because they figured the Rams were going to let him go anyway.
Why give up players when you could just sign him in free agency? The Jaguars did just that and got a great veteran receiver.
Torry will benefit from assets he never had in St. Louis. For one, he has a mobile quarterback, David Garrard. His mobility and the fact the Jags have a solid line will help but time to get Holt the ball.
Another reason for success is that Holt is on a team that is fully committed to getting him the football. I also believe Torry will benefit from playing on grass.
Torry Holt's Fantasy Football Value in 2009
In the end Holt is going to have a fine pro bowl year in season one with the Jags. The table is set and dinner will be served up for Torry this entire year as the Jags go back to the postseason. Torry will make a fine sixth round selection for your fantasy team in 2009.
