It's amazing to think Decker scored double-digit touchdowns while playing opposite target-hog Brandon Marshall for a Jets offense that hadn't moved the ball in years. It's somewhat less so when you co...

2016

2015

Given Decker went from a historically productive offense to the 2014 Jets, his numbers didn't drop off as much as one might expect. With Geno Smith and Michael Vick at the helm, Decker still averaged 8.4 YPT (16th among the league's 41 100-target WR) and racked up four catches of 40-plus yards in 15 games, despite playing on a gimpy hamstring in a few. Where Decker dropped off most was in the TD department ó only five after averaging 12 the prior two years. That was largely a function of the Jets not finding themselves in the red zone nearly as often as his former team, something that probably won't change drastically in 2015. At 6-3, 214, with a 4.54 40, Decker has enough wheels for his size to make plays downfield and in the red zone. He'll have added competition for in-close looks, however, as the Jets traded for the 6-4, 230-pound Brandon Marshall this offseason. Moreover, the team's quarterback situation is still perhaps unsettled ó and not appreciably improved ó with Smith expected to battle Ryan Fitzpatrick for snaps this summer.

2014

Last year we argued Greg Jenningsí quarterback downgrade from Aaron Rodgers to Christian Ponder was the biggest in NFL history. This year Decker has an equally strong case. For that reason his excellent per-play numbers and heavy red-zone use from a year ago arenít especially probative. Nonetheless, the 6-3, 214-pound Decker is likely to be the teamís top target and see work in the red zone on the occasions the team finds itself there. Deckerís not especially fast Ė his 4.54 40 time puts him just on the cusp of adequate for a bigger receiver Ė and it remains to be seen whether he can profile as a No. 1 without Peyton Manning throwing the ball and Demaryius Thomas occupying the defense. Michael Vick is competing with Geno Smith for the Jets' starting job, but itís hard to say which would be more beneficial for Decker.

2013

It's no fluke to finish second in the league in touchdown catches (13) when you lead it in red-zone targets (25). Decker didn't match teammate Demaryius Thomas in efficiency, production or big-play ability, but he surpassed him in scoring. And Decker (8.7 YPT, 13th) was no slouch on a per-play basis, either. At 6-3, 218, Decker has good size, and he's often going to see single coverage with Thomas on the opposite side. The arrival of Wes Welker is likely to impact Decker the most, but Welker's not a big scoring threat, and there's no reason Peyton Manning wonít continue to lean on Decker (12-for-25 conversion rate) when the team gets close to pay dirt.

2012

Decker started off strong last year, then disappeared down the stretch as Tim Tebow locked in on Demaryius Thomas as his top receiver. While Thomas is the better athlete and has the higher ceiling, the arrival of Peyton Manning in Denver means thereís now room for two productive wideouts at the same time. As such, the 6-3, 218-pound Decker finds himself in a good spot. With Thomas banged up this offseason, Decker, who has himself recovered from a sprained MCL, has been working out with Manning since the day he signed and apparently is developing a rapport. Deckerís not a burner, but heís got decent speed for his size, and heís a polished route runner, something that should matter a lot more with Manning than it did with Tebow.

2011

Decker heads into the 2011 season with a clear opportunity to prove he belongs in a starting role. Brandon Lloyd dominated the headlines for receivers in Denver, while the receivers around Decker on the depth chart, namely Eddie Royal and Matthew Willis, did little in 2010 to guarantee their roles in 2011. With Demaryius Thomas still fighting his way back from injury and Jabbar Gaffney off to Washington in a trade, Decker definitely has solid sleeper potential this season.

2010

Decker should get an opportunity to contribute in 2010 because of the overall lack of talent in the Broncos' wide receiver depth chart. With the departure of Brandon Marshall, Decker's competition for playing time comes down to Jabar Gaffney, Eddie Royal, fellow rookie Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Lloyd and Brandon Stokley; not exactly Pro Bowl talent. Due to the opportunity to get on the field, Decker could be an interesting sleeper in 2010.
