2014 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.

Comment: A healthy Peyton Manning will do wonders for Decker's fantasy value.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Hamstring keeps Decker out of practice Wed.     -- Wed Sep 17 7:04 pm --

Rex Ryan optimistic that Decker will play MNF
FLORHAM PARK - Though Jets wide receiver Eric Decker did not practice Wednesday, because he tweaked his hamstring in Sundayís loss at Green Bay, he said it was "a good sign" that he was able to do some jogging in the rehab area of the practice field, under the supervision of trainers. Moreover, Jets coach Rex Ryan sounded optimistic that both Decker and cornerback Dee Milliner will play Monday night against the Bears. (NJ.com)

FF Today's Take: Through two weeks of action the Jets are ranked 29th in offensive passing yards per game while the Bears defense is giving up under 200 yards through the air. Considering the fact that the Jets play on Monday night fantasy owners should play it safe by going with a different option for Week 3. Decker owners willing to roll the dice may want to consider picking up Jeremy Kerley or David Nelson in case the Jets keep their top receiving threat on the sideline.
Injury Eric Decker re-injures hamstring     -- Mon Sep 15 9:00 am --

Jets wideout bothered by hamstring injury in preseason
The New York Jets suffered a potentially costly injury Sunday, as wide receiver Eric Decker exited in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury. It's the same hamstring that nagged Decker throughout training camp, except this time the injury is believed to be more severe. He will have tests Monday, presumably an MRI. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Decker is the key receiver for the Jets so his loss would be a significant blow to the offense. Jeremy Kerley is operating as the No.2 wideout. David Nelson would likely slide into a starting role if Decker misses any time.
