Eric Decker secured 5-of-9 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 12 win over the Dolphins.
Decker has scored a touchdown and/or topped 80 receiving yards in all of his ten 2015 appearances. Decker nearly had a second score Sunday, but dropped it just shy of the end zone, and had another drop earlier in the game. So he paid dividends for fantasy owners but left yards on the field. Decker will remain a rock-solid WR2 when the Jets take on the Giants in Week 13. Nov 29 - 4:54 PM

Eric Decker absorbed four of 11 targets for 81 yards in the Jets' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

Decker was held without a catch in the first half but he got it going after halftime and finished the game as New York’s leading receiver. He made an incredible juggling catch for a 25-yard gain in the third quarter while being blanketed by rookie cornerback Kevin Johnson. Sunday ended Decker’s streak of three straight games with a touchdown. He’ll be on the WR2 borderline next week against Miami.

Eric Decker (knee) is probable for Week 11 against the Texans.

Decker practiced in full despite his knee issue. He's our No. 12 receiver this week.
Nov 20 - 5:01 PM

Eric Decker is listed on the Week 11 injury report with a knee issue, but is practicing in full.

It's the same routine Decker followed last week. He'll be on the WR1/2 borderline against the Texans. Decker has scored in 7-of-8 games this season.
Nov 19 - 1:30 PM

Eric Decker caught 6-of-11 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in New York's Week 10 loss to the Bills.

On a night where Brandon Marshall was committing drops left and right, Decker made a number of critical, sure-handed grabs to keep Gang Green in the game. Decker has now scored in 7-of-8 games this season, and caught at least six passes four straight weeks. He'll be a high-end WR2 against the Texans in Week 11.
Nov 13 - 12:21 AM

Eric Decker (knee) is probable for Week 10 against the Bills.

He's been playing through the knee issue for weeks and it hasn't hampered Decker on the field. With a touchdown in six-straight games, he's a solid WR2.
Nov 11 - 2:18 PM

Eric Decker absorbed six of nine targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 9 win over the Jaguars.

Five of Decker’s six receptions came in the first half. He came down with a nice back shoulder catch against Aaron Colvin in the first quarter before finishing the drive with an easy seven-yard touchdown. Decker’s most impressive grab came on a play where he climbed the ladder to beat Dwayne Gratz for a 16-yard gain on third down. Decker has scored a touchdown in every game but one this season. He’ll be on the WR2 map Thursday against Buffalo.
Nov 8 - 5:34 PM

Eric Decker (knee) is active for Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Decker didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday this week but returned to a full session on Friday, solidifying his status for Sunday. He's been a touchdown machine this year and has a good matchup waiting for him against Jacksonville. Even with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick dealing with a thumb injury, Decker is a no-brainer WR2.
Nov 8 - 11:58 AM

Eric Decker (knee) returned to a full practice on Friday and is listed as probable for Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Well that settles that. Decker has dealt with knee issues off and on all year but has only missed one game. He's caught a touchdown in every game but one this season. Consider him a WR2 against Jacksonville's porous secondary.
Nov 6 - 1:15 PM

Eric Decker (knee) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

The Jets said Decker hasn't suffered a setback. It sounds like they're saving him for Sunday. Although it would be nice to see Decker to get in a limited session on Friday, we're expecting him to suit up against the Jaguars.
Nov 5 - 2:11 PM

Eric Decker (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

The Jets are managing Decker's reps. Both Decker and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are expected to play Sunday.
Nov 4 - 4:08 PM

Eric Decker caught 6-of-7 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown Week 8 against the Raiders.

Decker took a backseat to Brandon Marshall against Oakland, but he caught three passes including a four-yard score on the Jets first touchdown drive and hauled in a 21-yard pass on 4th-and-19 to keep the final drive alive. Decker now has at least 90 yards or a touchdown in every game this season. Despite the unsettled situation at quarterback, Decker will be a low-end WR2 next week against Jacksonville.
Nov 1 - 7:53 PM

Eric Decker (knee) is officially active for Week 8 against the Raiders.

Decker bruised his knee last week against New England, but his status was never in any real doubt. Decker has a touchdown or 90 yards receiving in every game this season. He is a solid WR2 against Oakland's beatable secondary. New York declared C Nick Mangold, RB Bilal Powell, S Calvin Pryor, WR Devin Smith, QB Bryce Petty, G Jarvis Harrison and OT Ben Ijalana inactive for Week 8 against the Raiders.
Nov 1 - 2:43 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Eric Decker (knee) plans to play Week 8 against the Raiders.

He returned to a limited practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's session. Decker hinted he'd be a game-time decision, but it sounds like he's going to give it a go. He has a great matchup against Oakland while his DFS price tag remains relatively cheap. Sunday's 4:05 PM ET start time adds a bit of uncertainty to the equation, but in the likely event Decker suits up, he'll be a nice fantasy play.
Nov 1 - 8:06 AM's Dom Cosentino expects Eric Decker (knee, questionable) to play in Week 8 against the Raiders.

Cosentino believes the Jets limited Decker's practice week as a precautionary measure, and that all three Jets players listed as questionable (also OG Willie Colon and CB Buster Skrine) will be out there against the Raiders.
