Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker will play in three-receiver packages and third downs, according to Rich Cimini.
Insight: Decker is fully expected to be active for Week 4, but if true this puts a limit on his upside if he's not an every down player. Start him at your own risk.
 
9/26/2014 8:32:00 PM
Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan admitted that receiver Eric Decker will "probably be limited bit" in Sunday's game against the Lions due to a hamstring injury according to ESPN New York.
Insight: Decker was active last week but only played 12 snaps. At this point, fantasy owners would like Decker to not play at all rather than reaagravate the injury and miss more time. Do not start Decker this week.
 
9/25/2014 1:42:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker returned to practice on Thursday according to ESPN New York.
Insight: This is a good sign, but Decker will likely still be a game-time decision for Week 4. With again the chance of reaggravation, fantasy owners wouldn't mind seeing Decker sit out this week to recover for Week 5.
 
9/22/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker left Monday night's game against the Bears after aggravating his hamstring injury and is questionable to return.
Insight: He caught one lone pass for 19 yards. Even playing sparingly in the first half, Decker hurt his hamstring again. Don't expect him to return on Monday.
 
9/22/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) told ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters that he will play in Monday night's game against the Bears. UPDATE: Decker is active for Monday night football
Insight: He plans to play on Monday, but it is still unclear how involved he will be. Being how much the Bears have struggled against the run the past year, the Jets will likely run the ball a lot, which keeps Decker's ceiling low.
 
9/19/2014 2:48:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice again on Friday and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against Chicago.
Insight: The current plan is for Decker to test out his hamstring on Saturday. Head coach Rex Ryan is confident that his receiver will be ready for Monday night's game against the Bears and as the last game of the weekend doesn't leave fantasy owners many options should he not be ready to go.
 
9/18/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday according to ESPN New York.
Insight: The current plan is for Decker to test out his hamstring on Saturday. Head coach Rex Ryan is confident that his receiver will be ready for Monday night's game against the Bears, but Saturday will be the final word. For now, fantasy owners should go with another wide out this weekend.
 
9/15/2014 9:14:00 AM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker left Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury.
Insight: Decker's injury was the same one that he dealt with in the preseason which seems to be lingering. We should know later in the week about his status for Week 3. He was on his way to a solid game with four receptions for 63 yards and a score at the time of the injury.
 
8/16/2014 10:17:00 PM
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.
