Eric Decker went berserk in the Jets' Week 17 upset of the Dolphins, parlaying 11 targets into 10 catches for 221 yards and a touchdown.
Decker missed some second-quarter snaps with a shoulder injury. He returned in the third quarter to whip Dolphins RCB Cortland Finnegan all over the field, including for a 74-yard touchdown. Decker's first year in New York was a success, quietly finishing with 74 catches for 962 yards and five scores. He may not be a "No. 1 wideout" in the truest sense, but he's awfully close. We'd argue Decker was less a "product of Peyton Manning" than many made him out to be. Decker is owed just $5 million in 2015 and will be safely back with the Jets, despite front-office turnover. He could prove to be a value pick in 2015 re-draft leagues, depending on which direction the Jets take at quarterback. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 05:27:00 PM

Eric Decker caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Jets' Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

With Percy Harvin missing roughly half the game with a rib injury, Darrelle Revis and the Pats' secondary were free to key in on Decker. Sporting an extremely disappointing 61/741/4 line on the season, Decker closes things out against Brent Grimes and the Dolphins in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:01:00 PM

Eric Decker caught 7-of-11 targets for 100 yards Week 15 against the Titans.

Decker just stepped out of bounds on what would have been an 81-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but he still managed to crack the century mark for the first time as a Jet. Decker has turned around his season with 13 catches for 189 yards over the last two weeks, but he will not be a recommended option against the tough New England secondary Week 16.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 07:32:00 PM

Eric Decker caught six passes for 89 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Vikings.

Decker finished behind only Percy Harvin with eight targets. He had two 20-plus yard catches, but was held out of the end-zone for the fourth straight week. Harvin exited late with an ankle injury, so Decker could see an increased workload next week. Decker will be on the WR3 radar against the Titans.

Eric Decker caught two passes for 18 yards in the Jets' Week 13 loss to the Dolphins.

Not what Decker signed up for. He's got to hate driving to work every morning. Decker isn't helping the cause. He committed a drop on the opening drive. The Jets attempted just eight passes all night before the final drive. Decker was targeted a team-high four times. Nobody in this Jets offense is worth owning.

Eric Decker (toe) is probable for Monday night's game against Miami.

Decker didn't miss any practice time despite being listed with a toe issue. He's Rotoworld's No. 42 receiver for Week 13.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 03:45:00 PM

Eric Decker had four catches for 63 yards in Monday night's Week 12 loss against the Bills.

He was targeted a team-high eight times. Decker dropped what would have been a 69-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He still looks limited by his hamstring issue despite coming of the Jets' bye. Decker will be a low-end WR3 against the Dolphins next week.

Eric Decker says his troublesome hamstring finally feels 100 percent.

Decker initially pulled his right hammy during training camp. He aggravated it in Week 2 and has been dealing with soreness ever since. Now that the Jets are coming off a bye, he says he's no longer thinking about it. Despite a tough spot at snow-crushed Buffalo this week, Decker is a WR3 with Michael Vick at the control.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 09:13:00 AM

Eric Decker caught three passes for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Steelers.

On a day the Jets dominated from start to finish, Michael Vick was forced to attempt just 18 passes. Decker was running crisp routes and getting open at will, but saw just four targets -- the lone miss coming on an unsuccessful wide receiver screen. Decker will be a WR3 with some upside thanks to Vick's natural ability when the Jets come out of their bye. The entire offense is boosted by Geno Smith being on the sideline.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 04:28:00 PM

Eric Decker had nine catches for 63 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Chiefs.

Decker's touchdown was a three-yard pass from Michael Vick on a broken play. He had 12 targets and remains the Jets' best option in the red-zone. Decker will be a low-end WR2/FLEX in Week 10 against Pittsburgh.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 04:56:00 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 9.

Decker should be close to fully healthy. He'll be a low-end WR2/FLEX in Week 9 against the Chiefs.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 02:46:00 PM

Eric Decker caught seven passes for 40 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss to Buffalo.

Decker was targeted a team-high 11 times. He was mostly held in check in a game where Geno Smith and Mike Vick combined for four interceptions. Decker is going to lose looks to Percy Harvin going forward, but remains the best red-zone option. He'll be just a low-end WR2/FLEX in Week 9 against the Chiefs.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 06:14:00 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) is active for Week 8 against the Bills.

Decker was limited in practice for rest purposes, but should be close to fully healthy. He's the No. 22 receiver in Rotoworld's rankings this week. The Jets inactives are WR Greg Salas, DL T.J. Barnes, OG Dakota Dozier, LB Enekmpali Ikemefuna, OL Wesley Johnson, WR Walter Powell, and LB Trevor Riley.
