Jets | Eric Decker has partially torn rotator cuff

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 10:27:37 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a partially torn rotator cuff and is out for Week 4 versus the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Todd Bowles called Decker "week-to-week" and it is unknown at this time whether or not he will require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Decker told the New York media he's had similar shoulder problems in the past and will try to build strength back in the shoulder in order to avoid surgery. Obviously, owners hope he can go the non-surgical route so he can return in a few weeks, but that is far from a given. Quincy Enunwa needs to added wherever he is still available, as he is now a candidate for 10 targets on a regular basis. Consider him a WR2, even against the Seahawks' defense this week.

Jets | No MRI for Eric Decker yet

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:40:36 -0700

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said WR Eric Decker (shoulder) has not had an MRI done on his injured shoulder but may undergo an MRI at some point. Bowles said he hopes the injury will not last more than a week.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Decker may be a game-time decision for Week 4, so owners will need to check on his status later in the week. Decker should be a solid starting option in fantasy leagues if he is active, but owners will need other options ready to use if he is ruled out.

Jets | Eric Decker out of practice

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 08:19:45 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) is out of practice Thursday, Sept. 29. He didn't even take part in stretching.

Fantasy Tip: Decker had a big 6-126-1 Week 2, but he has largely been invisible in the two other games. He has a tough matchup against the Legion of Boom with the Seattle Seahawks, and he's a risky flex option if he suits up.

Jets | Eric Decker likely to undergo MRI exam

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:27:47 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) aggravated his shoulder injury during the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Sept. 25, and he will likely undergo an MRI exam, according to head coach Todd Bowels.

Fantasy Tip: Decker did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and he is coming off his worst fantasy showing (one reception for 31 yards) since his first season with the Jets in 2014. However, if Decker's weak outing was injury related and not just a blip on the radar, there is some concern for his fantasy stock. Don't downgrade him yet, but how active he is in practice this week should reveal the significance of his injury and whether he can be started in Week 4.

Jets | Eric Decker not practicing

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:14:30 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) is not on the field for practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Decker dealt with a shoulder injury last week but was able to play in the team's Week 3 game. Owners can keep an eye on the situation, but he should be able to play. Decker should still be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues even though Ryan Fitzpatrick has struggled early in the season.

Jets | Eric Decker fined

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 06:34:46 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker has been fined $9,115 by the NFL for taunting during Week 2's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has 15 receptions for 163 yards and two touchdowns through his first two games this season and could be in line for an even bigger role in the offense if WR Brandon Marshall (foot, knee) is held out of Week 3's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Decker should be viewed as a solid WR2 option in all fantasy formats.

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:02:14 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Decker has a chance to be the No. 1 receiver for the Jets in Week 3 if Brandon Marshall is ruled out. He is off to a solid start this season and should be a No. 2 receiver for owners.

Jets | Eric Decker not practicing

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 12:36:11 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Decker recently said he expected to play Week 3 against the Kansas City Cheifs Sunday, Sept. 25, and he's proven to be one of the most reliable fantasy receivers in the league. He's posted 80 receiving yards or scored a touchdown in 18 straight games, after all. Still, you'll want to monitor his progress leading into Sunday.
