Eric Decker misses practice Thursday-- Thu Sep 29 11:35 am --
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.
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.
Speaking to the media Friday, Todd Bowles says Brandon Marshall is "probably a game-time" decision after limited practice, making it likely he'll play in Kansas City on Sunday.
"Hopefully. That's the plan," Marshall said when asked if he'll play. "I have to be smart. It's a long season."
Marshall continues to battle a knee and foot injury since being tackled by his facemask in a Week 2 win over the Buffalo Bills.(NY Daily News)
FF Today's Take:Unfortunately for fantasy owners the Jets and Chiefs don't kick off until late Sunday afternoon. Hopefully we'll get a clearer picture on Marshall's status by Sunday morning. Quincy Enunwa would see an increased role if Marshall sits.
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 — one that looked much worse at first glance — 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.
