Signing with the Patriots with just over a month left in the offseason is going to be rough, as he's got little time to learn the playbook while developing chemistry with Tom Brady, who doesn't practice all that much any more. Decker should become a factor as the season goes on, but he shouldn't be relied upon for consistent production to start the year, though it helps that Julian Edelman is suspended for the first four games.

Eric Decker struggling with drops throughout Patriots' training camp

Recently-signed veteran receiver Eric Decker "is reportedly off to an uneven start at Patriots training camp," according to Boston Globe writer Hayden Byrd. Decker has struggled to reel in catches and has committed multiple drops, making his chances of making New England's roster much more difficult.

Fantasy Impact

Decker, 31, didn't fare well in one season with the Titans and didn't draw a lot of interest in free agency before joining New England on August 3rd, which came after Jordan Matthews was sent to IR. The Patriots could use a dependable pass-catcher to fill in while Julian Edelman sits out the first month of the season but Decker will have to start showing more consistency to have a chance at beating out the 10 other wideouts currently in camp. Decker is nothing more than a late-round flier at this point.
