Boldin returns, fantasy owners rejoice; What about Santonio Holmes?

After missing the past two games with multiple injuries to his face from this hit, Anquan Boldin is expected to return to action as the Cardinals take on the Panthers this week. "Q" broke both his sinus and jaw that required eight plates to be inserted into his face. Boldin may be somewhat limited since this is his first game back, but nonetheless, it's good news. Larry Fitzgerald's value will likely stay about the same. While he'll see less double coverage, he'll lose some targets. Steve Breaston's value goes down while Kurt Warner's stock continues to improve. One other piece of wide receiver news to pass along with you. Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes was caught with marijuana yesterday night. He is expected to be officially charged with possession soon. The Steelers have already deactivated him for this Sunday's game against the Giants, and it's safe to assume that he'll be suspended by the NFL. Holmes doesn't exactly have a clean rap sheet either; he had some troubles with the law coming out of college. I'd expect a suspension similar to that of Matt Jones: three games, if not more. With Holmes out, Nate Washington will fill in as the No. 2. He's a deep threat, but little else. Limas Sweed is worth a look in deep leagues, but shouldn't really be counted on. Remember, Matthew Berry won't answer the questions.
