Eric Decker: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Decker (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Decker (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, the Jets' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

We'll track Decker's status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, but per the Star-Ledger, the wideout appears to have a solid shot to suit up Sunday. He was limited to just 12 snaps in Monday's game against the Bears. Coach Rex Ryan noted Friday: "I feel good about him (playing Sunday). ... He did more reps today than he did last week (on Friday)." That said, in the event that Decker does play Sunday, Ryan suggested that the wideout's snaps would "probably be limited a little bit."
Decker (hamstring) took part in drills Friday, Justin Tasch of the New York Daily News reports.

Decker (hamstring) has been ruled out for the rest of Monday's game against the Bears, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Decker will ultimately finish Monday's game with one catch for 19 yards. The Jets' wide receiver entered the contest with an existing hamstring injury that was aggravated during the second quarter against the Bears. Considering it's basically the same injury, Decker will likely be another game-time decision for Sunday's upcoming contest against the Lions.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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 won’t 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 there’s 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. Decker’s not a burner, but he’s got decent speed for his size, and he’s 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.
