Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker missed Saturday's preseason game with a quad injury.
Insight: Decker has been nagged by minor injuries throughout camp and played 11 snaps in the preseason opener. He's missing out on valuable reps with Jets quarterback Geno Smith.
 
8/5/2014 8:52:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (foot, hamstring) has been cleared for the preseason opener, according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Decker has put together two straight seasons with 85+ catches, 1,000+ yards and 10+ touchdowns with the Denver Broncos. He has a good shot to see more than the 137 targets he drew last season, but he's going to see a major dropoff in production with Geno Smith as his quarterback instead of Peyton Manning.
 
2/18/2014 9:16:00 PM
Description: Receiver Eric Decker said money won't be the only factor when it comes to his free agency decision, according to espn.com. "It's not all about the money for me. It's about going to work every day and having fun and enjoying my job," Decker said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "If we can get on the same page, I will welcome a call from the Broncos, but I need to do what is best for my family," he said.
Insight: Decker has put together two straight seasons with 85+ catches, 1,000+ yards and 10+ touchdowns with the Denver Broncos. Signing with another team would mean no longer having to share targets with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Julius Thomas, but Denver remains one of the best spots for his fantasy value.
 
12/22/2013 5:06:00 PM
Description: Denver Broncos receiver Eric Decker saw a season-high 17 targets and had 10 catches for 131 yards and two touchdowns.
Insight: Decker has accumulated 464 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on 28 catches over his last four games. He'll head into the final week with 83 catches, 1,261 yards and 10 touchdowns.
 
12/22/2013 1:49:00 PM
Description: Denver Broncos receiver Eric Decker had a knee-on-knee collision with Texans CB Jonathan Joseph during Sunday's game and limped off the field but he returned on the next play.
Insight: Decker was able to come back in immediately because the first quarter ended. He was in the slot on Demaryius Thomas' 36-yard touchdown catch from Peyton Manning.
 
12/1/2013 7:52:00 PM
Description: Denver Broncos receiver Eric Decker was Peyton Manning's favorite receiver Sunday at Kansas City. He caught eight of his 12 targets for 174 yards and four touchdowns.
Insight: Decker had his way with rookie CB Marcus Cooper all day. He came in with just three touchdowns all season after catching 13 in 2012, but he now has 63 catches, 971 yards and seven scores with four games to go.
 
10/3/2013 4:57:00 PM
Description: Denver Broncos receiver Eric Decker (ankle) practiced Thursday.
Insight: He'll play Sunday barring a setback with his injured ankle. The receiver has produced 22 catches for 308 yards and a touchdown over his last three games and is a dependable WR2.
 
9/29/2013 7:40:00 PM
Description: After a rough opener, Denver receiver Eric Decker has returned to form.
Insight: He had 88 yards on five receptions Sunday against the Eagles and is averaging 7.3 catches and 103 receiving yards over the last three games. The only thing we can ask for is more touchdowns, as he has just one compared to six for Wes Welker and four apiece for Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas.
 
12/30/2012 7:21:00 PM
Description: Including Sunday against the Chiefs, when he had seven catches for 76 yards and two scores, Broncos receiver Eric Decker grabbed 29 passes for 362 yards and five touchdowns over his final four games.
Insight: Like his teammate Demaryius Thomas did earlier this season, Decker reached 1,000 yards for the first time in his career on Sunday. He grabbed 85 balls for 1,064 yards and 13 touchdowns. An incredible 23 of Peyton Manning's 37 touchdown passes went to either Thomas or Decker.
 
12/23/2012 7:25:00 PM
Description: Two of Eric Decker's six catches went for touchdowns Sunday against the Browns. The Broncos receiver finished with 65 yards.
Insight: Decker is closing in on his first 1,000-yard season. He needs 12 yards in Week 17 to accomplish the feat. His 11 receiving touchdowns also rank him among the NFL leaders.
 
12/16/2012 7:14:00 PM
Description: Broncos wideout Eric Decker racked up 133 receiving yards Sunday in a win against Baltimore.
Insight: That's Decker's second-highest receiving total of the season. The 51-yard score he hauled in with just under 10 minutes to go in the third quarter was his first touchdown in almost a month (November 18th against the Chargers).
 
Hot11/4/2012 5:37:00 PM
Description: Denver wide receiver Eric Decker crossed the goal line twice Sunday in a 31-23 win over the Bengals.
Insight: Decker has scored a touchdown in each of his last five games with four coming over the last two weeks. He only needs 29 more yards to match his career-high for yards in a season.
 
9/30/2012 7:12:00 PM
Description: Broncos wideout Eric Decker connected with Peyton Manning seven times for 79 yards and a touchdown, Decker's first of the season, Sunday against Oakland.
Insight: Manning is heavily targeting Decker and Demaryius Thomas this season so owners should have no problem starting both of them.
 
9/24/2012 12:33:00 PM
Description: Broncos wideout Eric Decker had his best game of the season in Week 3, catching eight passes for 136 yards.
Insight: Demaryius Thomas was Peyton Manning's favorite target in the first two weeks but Decker stepped up Sunday against Houston. His day could have been even better but a touchdown intended for him was tipped into the air and ended up in the hands of tight end Joel Dreessen. Thomas and Decker are both fantasy starters, though Decker has more value in PPR leagues than standard scoring formats.
 
8/26/2012 7:05:00 PM
Description: Broncos wideout Eric Decker caught two touchdowns Sunday and now has eight catches for 101 yards in the preseason.
Insight: Decker could have a huge role this season as Peyton Manning's go to guy underneath. Consider him a WR2 in PPR leagues and a WR3 in standard formats
 
7/29/2010 1:12:00 PM
Description: After spending the offseason rehabbing from foot surgery, Broncos rookie WR Eric Decker returned to practice Wednesday. SOURCE: COLORADO SPRINGS GAZETTE
Insight: We don't see Decker having a huge role in 2010. But given the many question marks surrounding the receiving unit, Decker could push for playing time quick if he has a good training camp.
