|The Jets 2011 5th round pick put together a decent rookie season, catching 29 passes for 314 yards and a touchdown while solidifying the team’s punt returner role. At 5’9” and 188 pounds, the Texas Christian product seems ill suited to a starting role but has some potential to develop into a decent slot receiver in a Jets offense that lacks proven pass catchers. Kerley has more value in dynasty leagues that use the PPR scoring system than in standard scoring, redraft formats.
| Eric Decker uncertain for Week 5 -- Thu Oct 2 5:40 pm --|
|New York Jets WR Eric Decker sat out practice with tightness in his balky right hamstring, leaving his status uncertain for the team's game San Diego on Sunday. Decker was limited Wednesday, but participated only in individual drills Thursday before he was told to sit out the rest of practice as a precaution.
Decker has been bothered by the hamstring since injuring it in Week 2 at Green Bay. He has been listed as questionable before each of the last two games, but played in both. (USA Today)|
FF Today's Take: To his credit, Decker has been reasonably productive despite being dogged by his hamstring. With that said, the Jets would be well-advised to give their top receiver the 1-2 weeks he needs to completely heal. New York isn't going to speed up Geno Smith's learning curve by giving him a top receiver that is far from 100 percent. Jeremy Kerley would likely serve as the Smith's favorite receiver if Decker is forced to sit.

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 Sunday’s 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.
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.

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.
