Eric Decker will miss the Jets' game against the Bengals on Saturday evening, as he battles a quadricep injury. Rex Ryan said he hoped Decker would be able to go for the team's second preseason game, even though the receiver had been dealing with the injury throughout the week. (Source: New York Daily News)

Fantasy Impact: Decker will be missing some valuable on-field time which he could use to build chemistry with quarterback Geno Smith. He should recover in time to train before facing the Giants next week. Decker is still the leading receiver in New York, and could potentially be undervalued as the thirtieth wide receiver taken in fantasy leagues.

Eric Decker returned to training on Tuesday, after sitting out the last couple of sessions with a quadricep injury. The wide receiver is now expected to feature in Saturday's game against the Bengals. (Source: Gang Green Nation)

Fantasy Impact: The injury shouldn't affect Decker's fantasy outlook too much, as he is slated to return to the side at the weekend after catching two passes for 12 yards against the Colts on Saturday. As the thirtieth wide receiver taken in drafts, Decker could prove to be somewhat of a sleeper. He was a top-ten WR last year, and although he has swapped Peyton Manning for Geno Smith, Decker still has talent, and doesn't have as many quality receivers to compete with for targets.

Eric Decker is out to show his critics he is not a wide receiver that needs Peyton Manning to be successful. Decker had huge numbers in Denver and wants to prove he can do the same thing in New York. In camp he has made it look easy against the Jets secondary. The question is, will he make any real impact as the Jets No.1 receiver this season. (Source: New York Daily News)

Fantasy Impact: Even with Decker looking good in camp and connecting with Geno Smith, he should be taken with caution. It is unrealistic to expect him to put up the same numbers as he did in Denver. He should be looked at as a fantasy WR2 at best. He could potentially be a good flex position player.

Decker used the phrase "more freedom" when describing how the Jets used their receivers. In offensive coordinator Marty Morhinweg's system, Eric Decker could do more to aid his own cause than he could in Denver's spread offense. (Source: The Star-Ledger)

Fantasy Impact: With a current ADP of the thirty-first wide receiver drafted in major fantasy leagues, Eric Decker could prove to be a great value pick. Decker seems to be settling in with his new team, and already appears to be establishing chemistry with Geno Smith. While expecting Decker to put up the same numbers may be unreasonable, it's not out of the question for him to come close to last year's totals this time around.

According to ESPN NY's Rich Cimini, Eric Decker shined on the first day of camp. Decker's early camp performance and comfort with quarterback Geno Smith impressed the writer so much that he predicted Decker "will be among the league leaders in targets." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: This may be a bold prediction, but it is certainly not unrealistic. Decker will not see the gaudy touchdown and yardage stats he had with Peyton Manning. Yet, his budding chemistry with Smith and superiority to the Jets other pass catchers will make him the go to option early and often. Decker is still a valuable fantasy prospect and certainly better than his ADP of WR #33. His value may even be higher in PPR leagues than it was with Manning given that he no longer has to fight Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, and Wes Welker for targets.

Peyton Manning to Smith-Vick is an astronomical downgrade at the QB position.
The Football Girl | Aug 21st
QB downgrade won't crush his value; a bargain at his current ADP.
Legion Report | Aug 21st
Deckers QB play literally went from Worst to Best and back to Worst with Orton/Tebow to Peyton Manning to Geno Smith. This season is Decker’s first look at being a WR1 in his career as he enters the AFC East where he will square up against Patriots Darrelle Revis twice, Bills Stephon Gilmore twice and Dolphins Brent Grimes twice. Tough luck! Decker somehow managed to put up 8 TDs with the Orton/Tebow QB duo and is coming off 3 straight years with 1000+ yards. Decker’s 2014 outlook is solely in the hands of Geno Smiths production, but he’s a great value pick if Geno Smith can take a step forward. Meanwhile, Decker and his hot wife will continue to post weird Pregnant Selfies (See

Decker will miss Peyton Manning, but he's no slouch on his own. He'll be the #1 receiver for the Jets and a great red zone target with his size and ability. Don't sleep on Decker.

Let's hope Michael Vick looks Decker's way often. There are a number of question marks around Decker, but he is a solid choice.
Breaking Football | Aug 20th
Very talented with good speed and ball skills. Only problem is he's in a new system and has no quarterback.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 20th
Signed a 5-year, $36.5 million dollar contract with in $15 guaranteed cash with the New York Jets. Decker, 27, set career highs in catches (87) and receiving yards (1,288 yards) with Denver last season, scoring 11 touchdowns. Decker is a physical, largely sure-handed wideout who moves the chains and can beat defensive backs deep. Unfortunately, he's downgrading quarterbacks in spectacular fashion going from Peyton Manning to Geno Smith, and will be the focus of defensive attention in New York after serving as Manning's No. 3 or 4 option. Those numbers that will be very difficult to duplicate with the Jets.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 19th
It will be interesting to see if Decker can have consistent fantasy numbers in the New York Jets chaotic passing game, but he will be the top option and could have some WR3 success.
Win My Fantasy League | Aug 9th
Will not post as gaudy numbers as he did with Peyton but Decker has talent and should push for WR2 numbers

BALLER MOVE: Target ~70-75th overall (Current ADP: 91) ANALYSIS: Eric Decker‘s move from Peyton Manning‘s Denver Broncos to Geno Smith‘s New York Jets has caused his stock to drop heavily amongst most drafters. It’s notable that even after a huge breakout year with Peyton Manning in 2012 which saw him finish at WR9, in 2013 Decker […]
