We joked about it. I said, 'Now you're going to run it like that? Because you saw Decker do it?' He was, like, 'Yep.' It was like, 'OK.'"

Jets | Receiving corps is deep

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 13:17:00 -0700

New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg believes the team's receiving corps is extremely deep and has more than a handful of guys who can play at a real high level.

Fantasy Tip: Eric Decker is a potential WR3 and the only Jets' receiver to count on for weekly contributions. Jeremy Kerley, Stephen Hill and David Nelson will battle for targets behind Decker, but none are worth more than a late-round pick.

Jets | Geno Smith, Eric Decker developing chemistry

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 09:35:46 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith and WR Eric Decker appear to be developing some nice chemistry in the first day of mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: It's way early in offseason workouts, but it's a good sign that Smith and Decker are on the same page already. Decker will be the Jets' go-to receiver this year. The maturation of Smith will directly influence how productive Decker can be this year.

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 10:39:39 -0700

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill could start opposite WR Eric Decker in 2014, in the opinion of Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. The battle for the No. 2 wide receiver could come down to Hill and WR David Nelson.

Jets | Eric Decker a go-to guy

Wed, 28 May 2014 10:54:20 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker is clearly a go-to guy and will be valuable in critical situations, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has also clearly lost some fantasy value after moving to New York from Denver. He still remains at least a viable flex option and could be a decent low-end WR2 in standard leagues.

Jets | Agree with Eric Decker

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 20:26:30 -0700

The New York Jets have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) Wednesday, March 12. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Decker had tremendous fantasy value with Peyton Manning as his quarterback in Denver, but it is hard to believe he will not take a step backward in terms of fantasy appeal unless Geno Smith takes a giant step forward, regardless if Decker is considered the No. 1 receiver on his team or not. He should still not be drafted any higher than a WR3 in most formats.
