Jets | Eric Decker status uncertain

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:55:36 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker's (hamstring) status for this weekend remains unknown. Head coach Rex Ryan is hopeful that the wide receiver will be able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Decker's injury and progress are definitely worth monitoring throughout the week. It might be best to keep him out of your starting lineup, however, if only for a week.

Jets | Eric Decker update

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 07:21:07 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) said he didn't re-injure his hamstring Monday, Sept. 22, but it just wouldn't loosen up. He said he pulled himself from the game instead of risking further injury. "(I ran) a few plays and decided it was best to step aside and pull myself out. I gradually tightened up," Decker said. "It was to the point where it wasn't loosening up, and instead of doing something stupid and really hurting something down the road I decided to pull myself and give myself a chance."

Fantasy Tip: This gives Decker a chance to play in Week 4. However, the Detroit Lions have one of the best defenses in the NFL thus far. Decker ($6,700, 13.4% of your cap) is a huge gamble in Week 4.

Jets | Eric Decker re-injures hamstring

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 19:29:21 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) left the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 22, after aggravating a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Decker's value is already limited by New York's below average passing offense, and a hamstring injury isn't going to help matters. Regardless of his Week 4 salary at FantasyScore, Decker could struggle to put up worthwhile numbers against a Detroit defense that has been one of the best in the NFL through three weeks.

Jets | Eric Decker active

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 16:06:49 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to put Decker in your starting lineups if you were waiting on him. He could be limited in the game, though, making him less likely to produce big numbers against the Bears.

Jets | Eric Decker expects to play

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:12:10 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) said he felt good while working out before the game and expects to play in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to wait for the inactive list to come out before getting the final word on Decker. Owners that have been waiting on his status will have to start Decker if he is active but may need to lower their expectations in case he is limited by the injury.

Jets | Eric Decker to sit?

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:58:19 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) may not play tonight, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Fantasy Tip: If Decker does sit, Chris Johnson is probably the only player worth starting on the Jets' offense. Decker may sit out in order to rest for Week 4.

Jets | Eric Decker a game-time decision

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:41:53 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) will be a true game-time decision in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears Monday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Decker may not be very effective if he plays, and he'd likely have his snaps limited. Hopefully you have other options if you rolled the dice with him this week.

Jets | Eric Decker listed as questionable

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 11:36:17 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) is questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Decker was limited in practice Saturday, Sept. 20, after not practicing all week, which is a good sign. His $6,100 (12.2% of your cap) price tag on FantasyScore is a little cumbersome since the injury may limit him. Monitor his status throughout the weekend.

Jets | Eric Decker does not practice

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 10:53:43 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 19. Head coach Rex Ryan suggested that Decker would not have to practice to be able to play in the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: With a Monday night game, Decker is a bit of a risky play in Week 3 since we don't know his status and there is a risk of him not being able to go. Decker would cost $6,100 (12.20% of cap) in FantasyScore for Week 3.

Jets | Team wants Eric Decker to practice

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 11:24:28 -0700

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan wants WR Eric Decker (hamstring) to test his injured hamstring in the coming days. The team would like to see him participate in practice Saturday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: If Decker can get back on the practice field on Saturday, we would get a better idea of where he is at heading into Monday night. Still, with a FantasyScore price of $6,100 (12.20% of cap), Decker is a risky play in Week 3.
