Eric Decker caught 3-of-3 targets for 37 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.
Decker has just five grabs for 56 yards over his past two games and has been out-targeted 17-6 by Corey Davis in the process. With Davis seizing control of one of the Titans' top two jobs at receiver, Decker has tumbled from fantasy consideration. Nov 17 - 12:26 AM

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

He's missed two practices with an illness this week but should be a full go for Sunday's game against Cincinnati. Decker has had an underwhelming first year in Tennessee, managing just 26 catches for 247 yards and one touchdown over eight games. He won't be on the Week 10 fantasy radar.

Eric Decker (illness) didn't practice on Thursday.

Decker was also absent on Wednesday. He's dealing with an illness but should resume practicing on Friday. The veteran scored his first touchdown of the year in last week's win over Baltimore.
Nov 9 - 2:55 PM

Eric Decker contributed three catches for 21 yards and a touchdown on four targets Sunday in the Titans’ Week 9 win over the Ravens.

Decker’s touchdown, an 11-yarder from Marcus Mariota with 3:58 remaining in the fourth quarter, was his first as a Titan. It was also his only catch of the second half. It was a nice design by Titans OC Terry Robiskie as Mariota rolled out right before lobbing it to Decker, who was wide open on the left side. Decker has only topped 50 yards once this year and won’t be a recommended play next week against Cincinnati.
Nov 5 - 6:19 PM

Eric Decker failed to catch a pass on two targets in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

Coming off his best game of the season on Monday Night, Decker was an absolute no show on Sunday versus a Cleveland defense missing Jason McCourty. It was the first time Decker was held without a catch in a game since Week 16, 2011. Decker has just 23 receptions for 226 yards with no touchdowns on the season and has been a top-50 scorer in just one week of the 2017 season. With the Titans on bye next week and Corey Davis getting close to returning, Decker doesn't need to be owned in seasonal leagues.
Oct 22 - 5:46 PM

Eric Decker caught 7-of-9 targets for 88 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Colts.

All three numbers marked new season-bests for Decker. He has still yet to find the end zone with the Titans, however, but Week 7 against the Browns will present a great opportunity for Decker to reach pay dirt. Decker will be a reliable WR3, especially in PPR formats, for that matchup in Cleveland.
Oct 17 - 12:15 AM

Eric Decker caught 4-of-6 targets for 34 yards in the Titans' Week 5 loss to the Dolphins.

Decker has struggled in his first season with the Titans, failing to clear 50 yards in any of his first five games. Even if Marcus Mariota (hamstring) returns for Week 6 against the Colts, Decker will be a risky WR4/flex option.
Oct 8 - 6:09 PM

Eric Decker caught 2-of-2 targets for 13 yards in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Texans.

Decker has been a fantasy non-factor even with Marcus Mariota healthy. With Mariota (hamstring) now on the shelf, Decker is droppable in 14-team leagues.
Oct 1 - 4:40 PM

Eric Decker caught 4-of-5 targets for 49 yards in the Titans' Week 3 win over the Seahawks.

Going to war with Richard Sherman, Decker got called for offensive pass interference. He also committed a holding penalty that brought back a Marcus Mariota rushing score. Both the catches and yards were actually new season highs for Decker, who seems to be slowly coming alive in his new offense. With Corey Davis (hamstring) likely to miss Week 4, Decker will be a solid WR4 against the Texans.
Sep 24 - 8:14 PM

Eric Decker hauled in three-of-five targets for 32 yards Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

All of his targets came before halftime. Decker absorbed Marcus Mariota’s first two completions for a combined 26 yards but was rarely heard from after that. Sunday’s clunker comes on the heels of an even worse performance in Week 1 (three catches for 10 yards on eight targets). Tennessee admittedly didn’t have to throw much in Sunday’s blowout, but Decker’s slow start is still troubling, especially with another tough game on the schedule next week against Seattle.
Sep 17 - 5:22 PM

Eric Decker caught 3-of-8 targets for 10 yards in the Titans' Week 1 loss to the Raiders.

Decker had an inefficient day in his Titans debut, though he did draw a pair of red zone targets. Neither were clean enough looks to score. The Titans were jumbled at the top of their receiver corps, with each of Decker, Corey Davis and Rishard Matthews drawing at least eight targets. Decker should be considered a touchdown-dependent WR4 as things sort themselves out in Tennessee.
Sep 10 - 4:36 PM

Eric Decker (ankle) returned to Titans practice on Tuesday.

Decker missed roughly a week of practice. Decker is a touchdown-scoring force when healthy, but now 30, he's coming off major hip and shoulder operations. Decker's upside is palpable, but there is some risk. Nevertheless, his price point has been favorable all summer in fantasy drafts.
Aug 29 - 4:15 PM

Eric Decker (ankle) is out for Sunday's preseason game against the Bears.

Harry Douglas (knee) has also been ruled out while DeMarco Murray's (hamstring) status has yet to be determined. This is a new injury for Decker, who was sidelined for much of last season while battling hip and shoulder ailments. The Titans are probably erring on the side of caution here, but Decker's status will certainly need to be monitored leading up to Week 1.
Aug 25 - 1:20 PM

Eric Decker "continues to look good" in Titans training camp.

In-house writer Jim Wyatt also emphasized Decker's expected role in the red zone. Now on the wrong side of 30, Decker is coming off serious hip and shoulder operations, but appears to be 100 percent healthy. He'll be a WR3 with WR2 upside in Tennessee.
Aug 1 - 3:31 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Eric Decker will start out in the slot.

Decker will also split time at the Z spot with Rishard Matthews. It's similar to the role Decker had with the Jets. Decker is in the early stages of getting acclimated to the Titans' scheme. He should start opposite Matthews in two-wide sets.
