Eric Decker secured four of five targets for 46 yards and one touchdown in the Jets' Week 4 win over the Dolphins.
Decker left briefly after making a gorgeous one-handed catch in the second quarter but didn’t show any ill effects after that. He burned safety Walt Aikens on a post route for his only touchdown of the game. The Jets leaned heavily on Chris Ivory, which explains why Decker was limited to just five targets. Decker will be on the WR3 map when the Jets come out of the bye against Washington in two weeks. Oct 4 - 1:36 PM

Eric Decker (knee) is active for Week 4 against the Dolphins.

He sat out last week's game after hurting his PCL against the Colts in Week 2. Decker saw 14 targets from Ryan Fitzpatrick in his first two games and can probably expect a similar workload Sunday against Miami. To this point, the Dolphins are in the middle of the pack in passing yards allowed so the potential for a big game certainly exists. Pencil Decker in as a WR3.
Oct 4 - 8:22 AM

Eric Decker (questionable, knee) got some team reps in at Friday's practice and will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Dolphins.

The Jets are playing a morning game in London this week, so if Decker can't suit up, fantasy owners can simply switch him out for one of the many receivers going on Sunday afternoon. Brandon Marshall is clearly Ryan Fitzpatrick's go-to target at this point but Decker still has an important role as the team's No. 2 receiver. He'll be a WR3 if he plays this week.
Oct 2 - 9:47 AM

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

Coach Todd Bowles admitted he didn't know if Decker will play, but that he was "encouraged" by Thursday's progress. Decker is looking 50-50 for Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins across the pond. The game's 9:30 AM ET kickoff time will make Decker a hard sell as a WR3 if we don't have a good feel for his status by Friday afternoon.
Oct 1 - 1:23 PM

Eric Decker (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

After missing Week 3, Decker is off on the wrong foot for Week 4. It'd be ideal to see him practice Thursday and Friday if we're to trust him Sunday.
Sep 30 - 3:23 PM

Jets declared WR Eric Decker, WR Chris Owusu, CB Darrin Walls, LB Trevor Reilly, OG Jarvis Harrison, OL Ben Ijalana, and DL Deon Simon inactive for Week 3 against the Eagles.

Chris Ivory and Darrelle Revis are both active, as expected. The Jets are trying to stay optimistic that Decker (PCL) will return in Week 4.
Sep 27 - 11:48 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Eric Decker (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Eagles.

The short week didn't help Decker, who sprained his PCL Monday in a win over the Colts. Per RapSheet, Decker "might just miss one week." In the meantime, the Jets are going to be shorthanded at wide receiver with Decker and Chris Owusu (knee scope) both sidelined. Brandon Marshall should have his way against the Eagles' mediocre secondary. We'd also expect third-down back Bilal Powell to play a bigger role in the passing game, particularly with Chris Ivory (groin, quad) at less than full health.

Eric Decker (questionable, knee) will be a game-time decision for Week 3 against the Eagles.

Decker didn't practice at all this week, which is typically a sign that players have little-to-no chance of suiting up on game day. With the Eagles-Jets game kicking off at 1 PM ET, we'll know if Decker is active before fantasy lineups lock. If Decker can't play, Quincy Enunwa would see more snaps.
Sep 25 - 1:09 PM

Eric Decker (knee) says he's making progress, but won't suit up until he's ready to play a full game.

In other words, he won't play until he's near 100 percent. With that stipulation in place, it's unlikely Decker will see the field in Week 3. With Chris Owusu (knee) also down, Brandon Marshall will be in for a massive workload against the Eagles.
Sep 24 - 3:38 PM

Updating an earlier item, Eric Decker (knee) did not practice on Thursday.

Thursday practice watchers were overzealous with saying Decker suited up. We'd be very surprised if he plays against the Eagles.
Sep 24 - 1:43 PM

Jets WR Eric Decker (knee) is practicing on Thursday.

We will not know his level of participation until after practice, but he will likely be listed as limited. Even so, returning to practice this early in the week is a good sign for his availability on Sunday. The Jets are reportedly "hopeful" he will play against the Eagles.

Eric Decker (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Decker got good news from his Tuesday MRI; he's dealing with a mere sprain, but his status for Week 3 against the Eagles on a short week is in doubt. With Chris Owusu (leg) also missing practice, Quincy Enunwa could be the No. 2. Devin Smith and Jeremy Kerley round out the rest of the depth chart.
Sep 23 - 1:23 PM

The Jets consider Eric Decker (knee) "day to day," and are "hopeful" he'll be ready for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Tuesday's MRI obviously provided good news, but Decker is still a long shot to suit up on a short week. That being said, he can't be completely ruled out, and is now looking like a good bet for Week 4. Decker's status will be updated when the Jets return to practice on Wednesday.
Sep 22 - 4:44 PM

Eric Decker (knee) is believed to have suffered a PCL injury in Monday night's Week 2 win over the Colts.

Decker will get an MRI on Tuesday, but Decker doesn't think the injury will require surgery. On a short week, it sounds like Decker will be in serious doubt for Week 3 against the Eagles and could be looking at a multi-week issue. If Decker sits, Brandon Marshall should become a real target hog at receiver. Quincy Enunwa and Chris Owusu would also see expanded roles on offense.
Sep 22 - 12:40 AM

Eric Decker (knee) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Decker was injured late in the fourth quarter on Monday night's Week 2 win over the Colts. Nobody seemed to notice when Decker got hurt, but the Jets will hope it's not serious. Decker went wild in the first half of the win, posting an 8-97-1 line on 10 targets. He was kept off the stat sheet in the second half.
