Jets | Eric Decker has shoulder surgery

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 07:11:28 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) is having surgery on his shoulder to repair a torn rotator cuff Tuesday, Nov. 15. Recovery time is eight months, which ends right before training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Decker also had major hip surgery last month, and he'll be coming off two major surgeries at age 30. He'll be an extreme buyer-beware option at receiver next season.

Jets | Eric Decker unconcerned about 2017

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 10:30:52 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is not worried about missing any regular-season games next season despite needing surgery on his hip and shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Decker is on crutches after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum on his hip, which has delayed the surgery he was originally supposed to have on his shoulder. He expects an eight-month recovery from his shoulder surgery once he is able to have surgery on it, which will certainly put his availability for the start of training camp in jeopardy if it doesn't happen soon. He's obviously a strong WR2 when healthy, but there are too many questions with his health right now to forecast where he will stand next year.

Jets | More on Eric Decker surgery

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 05:45:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) had a torn labrum and a lesion in his left hip repaired Tuesday, Oct. 18. Once he's off crutches, he'll have the shoulder surgery, but it's unclear how long that will take. The shoulder surgery will require eight months of recovery, which puts his status for the beginning of the 2017 season up in the air.

Fantasy Tip: Decker will likely be a boom-or-bust WR3 in drafts next season. However, a lot will depend on who is under center for the Jets. There is a lot to dislike about his draft stock after two major surgeries to recover from.

Jets | Eric Decker has hip surgery

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:43:08 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) underwent hip surgery Tuesday, Oct. 18. Decker is expected to recover in six months. Once Decker sheds his crutches, he'll have another procedure on his injured shoulder. The estimated recovery time for the shoulder surgery is eight months.

Fantasy Tip: In other words, Decker is a basket case right now. The good news is that he should be healthy and ready in time for offseason activities next year. As for this season, Brandon Marshall will continue to see a plethora of targets, while Quincy Enunwa serves as the No. 2 receiver. Robby Anderson and Jalin Marshall will have expanded roles, but neither of them is reliable enough to warrant starting.

Jets | Eric Decker will undergo surgery

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 11:06:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) will undergo season-ending surgery to repair his partially torn rotator cuff.

Fantasy Tip: Quincy Enunwa will continue to serve as the No. 2 receiver for the Jets moving forward. Enunwa has been a solid part of the team's passing game this season and should be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for fantasy owners.

Jets | Eric Decker to IR

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 08:00:12 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 12, with a partially torn rotator cuff.

Fantasy Tip: The move will keep Decker out at least eight weeks. If he can avoid surgery, until the offseason at least, he could return late in the season for a fantasy playoff push. Quincy Enunwa has a 27-294-1 line on the year, and he has been targeted nearly eight times a game. If he wasn't before, he's a must-own now.

Jets | Eric Decker ruled out Week 5

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 11:08:11 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) will not play Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: As expected. There is no clarity on Decker, who could be back as soon as next week or may not return this season due to his partially torn rotator cuff, depending on the source. Quincy Enunwa has been listed as questionable and Jalin Marshall is out indefinitely, so Robby Anderson needs to be on the radar of owners in deeper leagues. Brandon Marshall could be in line for 15-plus targets this weekend if Enunwa and Jalin Marshall cannot play.

Jets | Eric Decker out Friday

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 08:29:53 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) is out of practice Friday, Oct. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Decker is a long shot to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. Quincy Enunwa had six grabs for 60 yards last week, and he's a low-end WR3 option in Week 5.

Jets | No improvement for Eric Decker

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 10:41:54 -0700

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said the team has not seen any improvement in WR Eric Decker's (shoulder) shoulder injury. Bowles said it is too early to consider placing Decker on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Decker will miss at least one more week and could be placed on Injured Reserve if the injury does not make any progress. Owners can avoid Decker for the time being. Quincy Enunwa has played well this season and should be a solid starting candidate for most fantasy leagues.
