I see Broncos putting on a show, so all Denver WRs could be top-25 this week.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Broncos are going to go with a lot of three receiver packages and even though Thomas and Welker will see a ton of looks, Manning is not going to forget about Decker.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Decker may lose out on some targets to Welker, but he's still a monster in the Red Zone. I think Manning will be pass happy Thursday night and Decker has a very good chance to grab a touchdown.
 
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
While Decker offers a lot potential inconsistency in 2013. He does offer some nice upside as there is no way any defense can focus on stopping Decker with D-Thom and Welker. Decker should be a nice threat for some huge weeks, and some weeks you wish Peyton remembered Decker was on his team. His total numbers will put him as an ELITE WR#3.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Look for an obvious regression here from last season. In 2012, Decker grabbed 13 TDs and 1,064 receiving yards. With Welker on the field, Decker should still see around 1,000 yards, but about half the amount of TDs.
 
  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
Decker should be considered a solid No. 2 Fantasy WR, worth drafting as early as Rounds 5 and 6 Decker, as expected, had a breakout campaign in 2012. It was his 3rd-Year in the NFL. He broke out with career highs in receptions(85), yards (1,064) and touchdowns (13) as well as posting double digits in Fantasy points 8 times.
