Eric Decker caught 1-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.
And with this horrendous performance by the Jets offense, Decker’s streak of 18 consecutive games with 80 yards or a touchdown is snapped. Decker had just one target in the first half, and he did not get his first catch until early in the fourth quarter. Decker was targeted in the end zone in the second half, but Eric Berry went up high to break up the pass. Ryan Fitzpatrick was terrible Sunday, and it will not get any easier with the Seahawks coming to town next week. Still, Decker will be a good bet to start a new streak in that game. Sep 25 - 7:37 PM

Date:

Eric Decker (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Friday.

He was held out on Wednesday, "limited" on Thursday, and "full" on Friday, which locks in Decker as a surefire bet to start against the Chiefs. Brandon Marshall (knee) is dinged, which could give Decker an uptick in Week 3 targets.
Sep 23 - 1:10 PM

Eric Decker (shoulder) returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Decker is going to be fine for Sunday's trip to Kansas City. He's a mid-range WR2 who will tick higher if Brandon Marshall (knee) can't go.
Sep 22 - 1:38 PM

Eric Decker (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

Decker expressed zero concern about his Week 3 availability earlier this week, so we're still expecting him to go Sunday against the Chiefs.
Sep 21 - 3:27 PM

Eric Decker (shoulder) said he isn't concerned about his Week 3 status.

"I'm fine," Decker said in a Tuesday radio interview. "I'm definitely playing." Coming off a dominant Week 2 effort, Decker has scored in both games this season. He's as solid of a WR2 as they come.
Sep 20 - 2:20 PM

Eric Decker is dealing with a sore shoulder.

He was in the trainer's room getting worked on while his teammates practiced on Monday. Decker played 72-of-77 snaps in Thursday night's win over Buffalo and led the team with 126 receiving yards. As long as he makes it back to practice by the end of the week, Decker should be fine for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against Kansas City.
Sep 19 - 2:31 PM

Eric Decker caught 6-of-8 targets for 126 yards and a touchdown in New York's Week 2 win over the Bills.

Decker shook his Week 1 rust all the way off, ripping gigantic holes in the Bills' discombobulated secondary. He scorched Ronald Darby on his five-yard score in the second quarter. Decker could have had an even bigger night, but had a 53-yard grab called back by holding. The touchdown was his 15th in his past 17 games. Quincy Enunwa emerging as a factor has some worrying about Decker and Brandon Marshall's week-to-week consistency, but there should be enough volume to go around for all three in the Jets' high-flying offense. Decker will be a rock-solid WR2 for Week 3 against the Chiefs.
Sep 15 - 11:56 PM

Eric Decker caught 2-of-7 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Since last season, Decker has at least 80 yards and/or a touchdown in 16 straight games, a streak that extends even further if you dip back into 2014. A true model of consistency, Decker is always a reliable WR2 play in fantasy leagues regardless of opponent. His 15-yard touchdown came on a back-shoulder pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday. We did notice Decker playing outside more than usual, with Quincy Enunwa playing more in the slot. The Jets head to Buffalo for Thursday Night Football in Week 2.
Sep 11 - 4:45 PM

Eric Decker caught 1-of-5 targets for a 22-yard touchdown in Saturday's preseason game.

The red zone king beat sticky coverage from Janoris Jenkins on his score. Decker could have had another catch or two, but was victimized by inaccurate Ryan Fitzpatrick throws. He finishes August with two grabs for 35 yards and tonight's score. With at least 10 touchdowns in 3-of-4 seasons, Decker is a rock-solid WR2 for an offense that should throw a ton in 2016.
Aug 27 - 9:25 PM

Eric Decker said he would like to be used more downfield this season.

"It's nice to be able to work on some chunk throws down the field because I think that part of the game is going to have to open up this year for me a little bit," Decker said. "I love being able to get down the field and being able to play outside a little bit." Decker had the second-lowest yard-per-reception average of his career last season (12.8) and had just nine catches on passes which traveled more than 20 yards. A solid deep threat at times in Denver, Decker should be asked to get downfield more this season.

Newsday's Kimberley Martin reports both Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall are back at the Jets' facility on Tuesday.

Decker skipped last week's work to express his displeasure with how the Jets are handling Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract saga. Marshall reportedly missed the voluntary work for other reasons, but it is possible Fitzpatrick's situation played a role. Either way, both are back this week, and Fitzpatrick is still unsigned.

The New York Post reports Eric Decker is skipping Jets OTAs "because he is upset the organization has yet to sign Ryan Fitzpatrick."

The Jets' inability to re-sign their quarterback has not only left the depth chart all but barren, it is alienating other players in the locker room. Decker is trying to "send a message," according to beat writer Brian Costello. Decker's absence from voluntary workouts is not violating any rules. Jets second-year GM Mike Maccagnan arrived in New York flush with salary cap space following the frugal John Idzik area. At present, Gang Green has just $3.154 million available, the third lowest amount in the league.
May 25 - 10:16 PM

Eric Decker caught 5-of-8 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 17 loss to Buffalo.

Decker's second season as a Jet ends with a receiving line of 80-1,027-12. Playing primarily slot receiver for the first time in his career, Decker was also utilized as the Jets' go-to target in the red zone by Chan Gailey and proved a terrific fit in New York's four-wide spread attack. Decker turns 29 in March and has plenty left. He should be a locked-in fantasy WR2 for the 2016 season.
Jan 3 - 4:32 PM

Eric Decker caught 3-of-6 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 16 win over the Patriots.

Decker's touchdown was a six-yard game winner in overtime. Remarkably, Decker has now scored in 11-of-14 appearances. He'll be a high-end WR2 as the Jets look to sew up a playoff appearance in Week 17 against the Bills.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:57:00 PM

Eric Decker caught 6-of-10 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Saturday night's Week 15 win over the Cowboys.

Decker appeared to suffer a scary leg/ankle injury when he was tackled hard by Cowboys DB Byron Jones in the first quarter, but he returned to the game. Decker was targeted in the end zone in the fourth quarter, but the pass was defended well by Jones and Ryan Fitzpatrick narrowly overthrew it. Decker came back to score a wide-open touchdown one play later from three yards out on a perfectly-executed rub play. Decker has been frequently designed plays in scoring position by OC Chan Gailey this season, and has at least 80 yards and/or a touchdown in every game he's played in 2015. Decker will be a high-end WR2 when the Jets host the Patriots in Week 16.
