2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Broncos 2010 3rd round pick put together a reasonably productive season in 2011 with Tim Tebow at the controls of the teamís offense, catching 44 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns. He started the season strong with 37 receptions for 527 yards and all eight of his touchdowns over his first 11 games before fading badly down the stretch with seven receptions for 85 yards over his final five games. There are two big concerns with Decker entering the 2012 season. One is his completion to target percentage which checked in at a woeful 46.3% last season. While that was partly the result of having Tebow as his quarterback, that explanation is partially negated by the fact that Decker was often used as the teamís top threat on short and intermediate routes. Equally concerning was his lack of production when Demaryius Thomas returned to the lineup. With Thomas out of the lineup for the first five games of the season, Decker caught 22 passes and then caught 22 more over the final 11 games with Thomas in the lineup. With Peyton Manning now in Denver, Decker is certainly going to catch a higher percentage of his targets and he has the speed and athleticism to emerge as a 1,000-yard receiver. Consider him a WR3 in 2012 although he lacks Thomasí huge upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Eric Decker misses practice Thursday     -- Thu Sep 29 11:35 am --

Shoulder injury
Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) is not practicing. He's at the field, but he didn't even participate in stretching. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Decker missed Wednesday as well and reportedly had an MRI on his shoulder injury that he aggravated last Sunday. If Decker ends up sitting this week, Quincy Enunwa becomes a viable WR3 even against a difficult Seattle defense.
Injury Eric Decker to get MRI on shoulder     -- Wed Sep 28 3:47 pm --

Aggrevated injury against the Chiefs in Week 3
Three separate Jets suffered shoulder injuries in their 24-3 loss to the Chiefs, most notably wide receiver Eric Decker. Decker did not practice Wednesday and will likely get an MRI on his shoulder, coach Todd Bowles told reporters. Decker aggravated the injury on Sunday after practicing in a limited fashion last week. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Having an MRI done midweek after the head coach acknowledged that the injury was aggravated on Sunday leaves Eric Decker's playing status for Sunday up in the air. Fantasy owners should know more by the end of the week and have a backup plan ready to go. Quincy Enunwa and Jalin Marshall would see a few more targets if Decker was not able to suit up against the Seahawks.
Injury Brandon Marshall not ruled out for Sunday     -- Tue Sep 20 10:19 am --

Jets WR feels "stable" and might take on Chiefs
Brandon Marshall didn't practice Monday because of the knee injury he suffered in the Jets' win over the Bills on Thursday ó one that looked much worse at first glance ó but he remains optimistic he'll have a chance to play Sunday when the Jets take on the Chiefs in Kansas City. (New York Daily News)

FF Today's Take: "The school I come from is, don't rule me out until Sunday. I need all the way up until pregame warmup to see if I'm good to go," Marshall said Monday. "Right now, I feel stable. I feel good. And I'm going to work my tail off to get out there and be out there with the guys." This is worth monitoring, but with Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa (ribs) playing well, Marshall may not have to be forced back into action so quickly.
Jets release TE Jace Amaro     -- Sat Sep 3 12:55 pm --

Position remains an afterthought
New York has waived cornerback Dee Milliner and tight end Jace Amaro, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source. Amaro was selected in the second round (49th overall) of the 2014 draft and after appearing in 14 games as a rookie (recording 38 receptions for 345 yards and two touchdowns), missed all of 2015 with a torn shoulder labrum. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: The Jets abandoned the TE position last season (8 receptions total) and funneled the majority of their targets to Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. They seem to be heading down the same offensive path this season.
Jets, Fitzpatrick agree on one-year deal     -- Wed Jul 27 7:19 pm --

$12 million contract
The New York Jets and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick ended their five-month contract dispute on Wednesday. The two sides finalized a one-year, $12 million contract on the eve of the team's first training-camp practice, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The deal also includes another $3 million in incentives, which could boost the value to $15 million, a source told Schefter. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The two sides had been at a standoff for months but now that a deal is done, fantasy owners of the Jets' skill position players, specifically Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, can breathe a sigh of relief. Fitzpatrick is coming off his best season as a pro, finishing as a low-end QB1.
