We view Green as a WR1 even in a difficult matchup with the Broncos defense. He has the athletic ability and ball skills to beat any cornerback, but fantasy owners should temper expectations. Green has amassed 20 targets in two games. He has a depth of target of 10.8 yards. Decker remains a solid WR2 and continues and has scored a touchdown in over 80 percent of the games he played in a member of the Jets. He should receive a bump in targets if Brandon Marshall misses Week 3.

 Decker should be the focus with Marshall ailing

Green will take on Aquib Talib, which isn't the best matchup ever, but he should see plenty of targets.

I do not think you can bench Green this week, but he does not have a ton of upside against a strong Denver secondary this week.Decker has been very consistent and he has 8 receptions for 163 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2 games. He is a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 with WR Brandon Marshall dinged.
