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

Decker (quadriceps) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, the New York Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Decker has recently been limited in practice and also missed Saturday's preseason game to rest a quadriceps ailment. However, since the issue isn't considered serious, Decker should be able to suit up Saturday, when he'll work as the Jets' No. 1 wide receiver.
Decker (quad) participated in 7-on-7 drills during Monday's practice, Seth Walder of the Daily News reports.

Decker didn't practice Saturday due to an injured quadriceps, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Decker's debut as a Jet on Thursday was subdued, as he hauled in both targets for just 12 yards. The exchange of Peyton Manning for the combo of Mike Vick and Geno Smith was supposed to be alleviated by his being featured as a No. 1 wide receiver, but a third consecutive 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown campaign may be difficult to expect. Any injuries would further hinder Decker's chances of the three-peat.
Decker worked as the punt returner on Wednesday in Jeremy Kerley's absence, Bob Glauber of Newsday reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Decker was filling in for Kerley, who was dealing with personal issues on Wednesday. However, it appears the Jets may be willing to use the newly-acquired wideout as the punt returner if Kerley is unavailable. It's likely that both Kerley and rookie Jalen Saunders will land ahead of Decker on the punt returner depth chart, though.
Decker has reached agreement on a contract with the Jets, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports. The deal is for five years and worth $36.25 million ($15 million guaranteed), according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The top wide receiver in free agency is now off the board, to a team with as great of a need at the position as any, given the Jets' collective struggles in the passing game the last couple of seasons. The Broncos' stocked receiving corps often forced opposing defenses to divert their attention from Decker during Peyton Manning's record-setting 2013 campaign, but the move to New York ensures Decker will be shadowed by the opposing team's No. 1 cornerback every game. Decker will be hard-pressed to maintain his productivity with the Jets even with the likelihood of added targets coming in his direction, but another 1,000-yard season would still seem to be attainable.

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.
