2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Broncos 2010 3rd round pick put together a reasonably productive season in 2011 with Tim Tebow at the controls of the teamís offense, catching 44 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns. He started the season strong with 37 receptions for 527 yards and all eight of his touchdowns over his first 11 games before fading badly down the stretch with seven receptions for 85 yards over his final five games. There are two big concerns with Decker entering the 2012 season. One is his completion to target percentage which checked in at a woeful 46.3% last season. While that was partly the result of having Tebow as his quarterback, that explanation is partially negated by the fact that Decker was often used as the teamís top threat on short and intermediate routes. Equally concerning was his lack of production when Demaryius Thomas returned to the lineup. With Thomas out of the lineup for the first five games of the season, Decker caught 22 passes and then caught 22 more over the final 11 games with Thomas in the lineup. With Peyton Manning now in Denver, Decker is certainly going to catch a higher percentage of his targets and he has the speed and athleticism to emerge as a 1,000-yard receiver. Consider him a WR3 in 2012 although he lacks Thomasí huge upside.

Comment: A healthy Peyton Manning will do wonders for Decker's fantasy value.

News From The Past 90 Days
Harvin reportedly traded to Jets     -- Fri Oct 17 5:50 pm --

Seahawks receive conditional mid-round pick
BREAKING: The Jets have just agreed with Seattle to a trade sending WR Percy Harvin to New York for conditional pick. (Jay Glazer on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: This one is a stunner and has fairly far-reaching implications for both teams. By making this move, the Seahawks essentially are scrapping the misdirection part of their offense and likely recommitting themselves to Marshawn Lynch. Doug Baldwin should see his stock increase the most among Seattle wideouts. The Jets now have a dynamic (albeit injury-prone) playmaker opposite Eric Decker that should aid Geno Smith's development.
Injury Eric Decker uncertain for Week 5     -- Thu Oct 2 5:40 pm --

Hamstring tightness
New York Jets WR Eric Decker sat out practice with tightness in his balky right hamstring, leaving his status uncertain for the team's game San Diego on Sunday. Decker was limited Wednesday, but participated only in individual drills Thursday before he was told to sit out the rest of practice as a precaution. Decker has been bothered by the hamstring since injuring it in Week 2 at Green Bay. He has been listed as questionable before each of the last two games, but played in both. (USA Today)

FF Today's Take: To his credit, Decker has been reasonably productive despite being dogged by his hamstring. With that said, the Jets would be well-advised to give their top receiver the 1-2 weeks he needs to completely heal. New York isn't going to speed up Geno Smith's learning curve by giving him a top receiver that is far from 100 percent. Jeremy Kerley would likely serve as the Smith's favorite receiver if Decker is forced to sit.
