Titans | Eric Decker suffers injury

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 17:07:31 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during practice Wednesday, Aug. 16. Head coach Mike Mularkey said he does not believe Decker's injury is serious.

Fantasy Tip: Decker could miss the second preseason game because of the injury but does not appear to be in danger of missing the start of the regular season. He is expected to be a top-three receiver for the Titans this season and should see a solid amount of targets. He can be considered a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Titans | Eric Decker meshing with Marcus Mariota

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 17:49:24 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker has already built a "trust" with QB Marcus Mariota, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. "Just in this week of practice, they've connected a lot of times," Mularkey said. "So yeah, there's a chemistry there."

Fantasy Tip: Decker's experience should allow him to carve out a steady role in the passing game, especially if Corey Davis' hamstring injury lingers into the season. He is shaping up to be a low-end WR3.

Titans | Eric Decker lines up outside

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 20:12:53 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker lined up on the outside and in the slot with the first-team during practice Thursday, Aug. 3, after WR Corey Davis (hamstring) left with an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has shown a nose for the end zone in the past, and even when Davis is healthy, Decker could emerge as a decent flex play. Grab him as a WR4.

Titans | Eric Decker contract details

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 16:11:37 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker's one-year deal is worth up to $5.35 million, according to a source. The deal comes with a $2.5 million signing bonus, a $1.35 million salary and up to $1.50 million in incentives.

Fantasy Tip: It's a reasonable deal for a one-year contract. Decker will be able to contribute right away to an underrated offense. He even has a good opportunity to be the most productive wide receiver in Tennessee. Still, caution should be used. He'll be competing with Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis and Delanie Walker for targets. Decker has low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 appeal in his new stomping grounds.

Titans | Eric Decker joins Tennessee

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 17:59:34 -0700

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) has signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to a source. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Decker, coming off of a serious injury, is a risky fantasy buy in any format. The Titans have a host of weaponry now for Marcus Mariota, but each one of these wideouts will be tough to play any given week. Decker is a WR4 with flex consideration, unless it becomes clear early on that he has a rapport with Mariota.

Titans | Eric Decker leaves Titans visit

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 15:11:05 -0700

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) left his visit with the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, June 14, without a contract.

Fantasy Tip: Decker could still sign with the Titans but probably will meet with other teams before he makes a decision. Decker has been a terrific receiver over the last few seasons but was limited to three games in 2016. He probably would be a No. 3 receiver at worst with his new team and can be considered a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver depending on his team.

Titans | Eric Decker visiting Tennessee

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 10:35:50 -0700

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) is meeting with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: A marriage between Decker and the Titans makes sense on a number of levels, not the least of which includes Decker and his wife - country singer Jessie James - owning a home in Nashville. It'd be a decent fantasy landing spot for Decker, although it would complicate a wide receiver depth chart that is becoming increasingly crowded with good, if not very good, options. The ex-Jet and Bronco would almost certainly top out as a WR3, fighting for targets along with Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker.

Jets | Eric Decker released

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 14:10:32 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker was released Monday, June 12, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Decker is now able to choose who he plays for, as opposed to if he were traded. Quincy Enunwa now officially heads the Jets' receiving corps. Guys like Robby Anderson, Jalin Marshall and Charone Peake will have an opportunity to start now, but Enunwa is the only Jets receiver with weekly flex potential.

Ravens | Baltimore may still pursue Eric Decker

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 12:56:21 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker could still be traded for or signed by the Baltimore Ravens even with the Ravens signing WR Jeremy Maclin.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore's receiving corps looks a lot better with Maclin, but they could use more help after losing Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Dennis Pitta this offseason. Maclin's presence and the possible addition of Decker would certainly aid Flacco, but Flacco is too unreliable as a starting fantasy quarterback. Decker would remain in the WR3 to WR4 conversation.

Browns | Cleveland may consider Eric Decker

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 13:16:02 -0700

The Cleveland Browns may consider pursuing New York Jets WR Eric Decker when he is released, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Fantasy Tip: Decker was limited to three games in 2016 because of an injury but posted at least 1,000 yards in three of the previous four season and would help the Browns passing game. He likely would be a top-three receiver for the Browns if he signed, but he could be more of a No. 4 fantasy receiver because of the team's quarterback situation.
