Latches on with Vegas

Hollister signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hollister is coming off a down year with the Jaguars, recording nine catches for 55 yards and a score in seven games. He'll benefit from veteran quarterback play in Derek Carr with his new squad, but he will also need to compete against Foster Moreau and Nick Bowers to get on the field, with Darren Waller in firm command of the top tight end spot.

Three catches in finale

Hollister caught all three of his targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Hollister was Jacksonville's only tight end to be targeted Week 18, and he also led the position group with 45 offensive snaps. The Jags' tight ends didn't produce much in 2021, and Hollister was no exception with nine receptions for 55 yards and one touchdown in seven games. The 28-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent and figures to be fighting for a depth role in training camp wherever he ends up for 2022.

Activated off COVID-19 list

Hollister (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: Hollister tested positive for the virus and was sidelined for the Jaguars' Week 17 blowout loss to the Patriots. In his last appearance, the reserve tight end caught both of his targets for a season-high 20 receiving yards.

Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

Hollister (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

Analysis: The tight end tested positive for the virus Tuesday, putting his ability to play Sunday against the Patriots in question. Hollister will enter the league's protocols and if he can't play in Week 17, Kahale Warring could be elevated from the practice squad for the contest.

Secures two receptions

Hollister caught both his targets for 20 yards during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Hollister was targeted for the first time since Week 5 and played 36 of 73 offensive snaps Sunday, which was only six fewer snaps than starting tight end James O'Shaughnessy. Hollister has found himself back in the mix under interim coach Darrell Bevell, though his role as a secondary tight end means he doesn't offer much fantasy potential.

Suiting up Sunday

Hollister is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Hollister hasn't seen game action since Week 6 but will suit up for the first game with interim coach Darrell Bevell leading the way. The 28-year-old should work as the No. 3 tight end in place of Luke Farrell, who is a healthy scratch Sunday.

Dec 19, 2021 8:50 AM EST

Inactive once again

Hollister (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Hollister has been working as a backup option at tight end with Dan Arnold sitting at the top of the depth chart. Hollister has appeared in just four games this season, making four catches on nine targets for 21 yards and a touchdown.

Nov 7, 2021 9:51 AM EST

Scores on lone target

Hollister caught a one-yard touchdown during Sunday's 37-19 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Hollister played only 15 offensive snaps but cashed in on his lone target with the one-yard score during the second quarter. Trade acquisition Dan Arnold has cemented himself atop the depth chart at tight end since being acquired from Carolina, while Hollister, Chris Manhertz and Luke Farrell continue to split snaps as depth options.

Oct 11, 2021 12:17 PM EST

Totals 15 yards on six targets

Hollister caught two of six targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 31-19 loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: The 27-year-old led Jacksonville's tight ends by playing 68 percent of the offensive snaps, and he ended up having two of his targets intercepted, including one that was a clear drop. It was Hollister's first came action of the season after signing with the Jags in early September, and his audition for the starting role didn't go particularly well. Dan Arnold was acquired from the Panthers on Monday and should be in the mix to start at tight end with James O'Shaughnessy (ankle) on injured reserve for the foreseeable future.

Sep 27, 2021 2:11 PM EST

Joining Jacksonville

Hollister agreed to a contract with the Jaguars on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old spent camp with the Bills and was unable to make the season-opening roster, and he'll now receive an opportunity with the Jags. Jacksonville has a weak group of tight ends with Chris Manhertz, James O'Shaughnessy and Luke Farrell, so Hollister could carve out a role in the offense with a strong showing at practice early on.

Sep 2, 2021 4:16 PM EST

Cut loose by Bills

The Bills released Hollister on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Bills explored higher-profile additions at tight end this offseason before giving Hollister a one-year contract with only $137,5000 guaranteed. Dawson Knox remains the team's top tight end and lone receiving threat at the position, with Buffalo likely using some four-wide sets to mitigate the impact of a weak TE group.

Aug 31, 2021 8:17 AM EST

Back in action

Hollister returned to practice Thursday after injuring his back on the first day of training camp practice last Thursday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The veteran and former college teammate of quarterback Josh Allen can now get back to work and try to secure his No. 2 tight end status behind starter Dawson Knox.

Aug 5, 2021 9:11 AM EST

New TE suffers camp injury

Hollister is listed as day-to-day due to a back injury, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

Analysis: The free-agent signee apparently hurt himself during training camp work Thursday. Hollister is competing with Tommy Sweeney for a depth role behind starter Dawson Knox, so any significant missed time could cost him in terms of potential playing time.

Jul 29, 2021 12:35 PM EST

Heading to Buffalo

Hollister is signing a one-year contract with the Bills, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hollister had a few weeks of fantasy relevance in 2019 after injuries cleared out Seattle's TE depth, but he's otherwise been a backup for most of his pro career. The 27-year-old will at least have a shot to earn playing time in Buffalo, where Dawson Knox is the returning starter at what's arguably the weakest position on an otherwise excellent roster. Knox is bigger, faster and younger, but Hollister arguably has better hands and a better feel for route-running.

Scores three times in 2020

Hollister finished the 2020 season with 25 receptions for 209 yards and three touchdowns over 16 games.

Analysis: Hollister was targeted five times in the 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams, but he failed to haul in a pass. The 27-year-old finished third among Seahawks' tight ends in terms of offensive snaps, as Will Dissly led the bunch while Greg Olsen trailed closely. However, Hollister led the group in receptions and touchdowns. The Wyoming product is set to be an unrestricted free agent in March, but the Seahawks likely will try to bring him back, especially since Olsen's stint in Seattle is likely over. Colby Parkinson also didn't show enough in his rookie season to be depended on yet. Hollister likely would see an uptick in usage in 2021 if he returns and the Seahawks don't bring in another tight end.

Jan 11, 2021 7:56 AM EST

Snares one pass

Hollister caught one of three targets for six yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Despite returning in Week 16, Greg Olsen (foot) was inactive Sunday after enduring a "flare up." In turn, Hollister logged 41 of 65 snaps on offense, eight behind Will Dissly, who reeled in a 20-yard reception. Even if Olsen is able to return for Saturday's playoff game against the Rams, there's virtually no chance that he handles a full workload. Hollister's role should be safe, although that doesn't mean much for his fantasy value. In five games without Olsen this year, Hollister posted a 9-74-1 line.

Jan 4, 2021 3:34 AM EST

Hauls in another TD

Hollister caught two of six targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Despite Greg Olsen (foot) returning to the lineup, Hollister still played 33 of 63 snaps on offense. Will Dissly played 35 snaps and Olsen logged 12. Hollister finished second on the team in targets, and he posted the exact stat line he posted in last week's win over Washington. Olsen's workload could get ramped up in the upcoming weeks. Hollister and Dissly could both see a decrease in usage if that comes to fruition.

Dec 28, 2020 1:29 PM EST

Notches second TD of 2020

Hollister caught both targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington.

Analysis: Hollister logged 40 snaps on offense (70 percent), just a handful more than Will Dissly (37 snaps). The former came through with a 10-yard touchdown catch in the first half but was relatively quiet for the remainder of the game; Dissly finished without a target. It's essentially an even split between the two position mates, and there continues to be limited upside for both players.

Dec 21, 2020 9:13 AM EST

Reels in one pass

Hollister caught his lone target for a 20-yard gain in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Hollister out-snapped Will Dissly 37-36 in another game without Greg Olsen (foot). The two have been close to even in terms of playing time, and neither tight end has been consistent enough for fantasy purposes. It's possible Olsen returns before the end of the season, too.

Dec 15, 2020 12:04 PM EST

Musters up 20 yards

Hollister caught three of four targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 17-12 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Hollister and Will Dissly both played 39 snaps (54 percent) in Sunday's loss. Dissly finished with four receptions for 28 yards. Neither tight end put up big numbers, and depending on either one will be tough moving forward. Russell Wilson rarely targeted Greg Olsen (foot) when he was healthy, as he's been more comfortable showering Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf with targets. Hollister's next chance to potentially establish himself as the top tight end is against the Jets next Sunday.
