Jets | Quincy Enunwa set to be third receiver?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:10:05 -0700

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa currently has the inside track on being the No. 3 wide receiver. He will battle with WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Jalin Marshall and Devin Smith (knee) for roster spots and playing time behind WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall and Decker are both viable No. 2 receivers for your fantasy squad and also provide a reliable floor. There's a tremendous falloff after them, though. Additionally, there isn't a lot of fantasy value for the third receiver in the passing game, especially if tight end Jace Amaro reestablishes himself as a pass catcher. At this point, Enunwa and Thompkins are potential late-round fliers in deep leagues, but they are likely best left to the waiver wire. Marshall and Smith don't currently move the fantasy needle.

Jets | Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker practicing

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 07:32:55 -0700

New York Jets WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are participating in organized team activities Wednesday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Both Marshall and Decker have skipped some workouts this offseason but will be the two main targets in the passing game this season. Both should be starting options in all leagues, but their value will be determined by the team's quarterback. Marshall and Decker would see their value drop if the starting quarterback is not Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Jets | Eric Decker, Brandon Marshall back

Tue, 31 May 2016 07:13:47 -0700

New York Jets WRs Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall were back at practice for organized team activities Tuesday, May 31, after sitting out the opening week in a show of solidarity for the unsigned QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall and Decker enjoyed fine chemistry with Fitz in 2015, and their fantasy value depends heavily on whether the Jets bring the grizzled QB back for another season. If Fitzpatrick re-signs, consider Marshall a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2. Decker is more of a midrange No. 2 option.

Jets | Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker absent

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:39:48 -0700

New York Jets WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are both not in attendance for organized team activities this week. Head coach Todd Bowles downplayed their absence, but Decker stayed away because he's upset that the Jets have yet to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. The reason for Marshall's absence is unclear.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense for both Marshall and Decker to be upset with the Fitzpatrick situation. Both receivers developed nice chemistry with the Amish Rifle in 2015, and their production depends greatly on whether he returns. If Fitz moves on, Geno Smith would likely be delivering the pigskin through the air, and that's a sizable dropoff. Marshall and Decker's fantasy value would take a big hit if Fitz isn't re-signed.

Jets | Eric Decker unhappy with Jets

Wed, 25 May 2016 19:49:11 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker is skipping organized team activities this week because he is upset that the team has not re-signed free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick at this point, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Decker played very well with Fitzpatrick as his quarterback in 2015, so it is understandable that Decker would want Fitzpatrick to return. Decker should be a No. 2 receiver for owners if Fitzpatrick re-signs, but his value would take a hit if Geno Smith or another quarterback starts.

Jets | Teammate expects Ryan Fitzpatrick back

Tue, 17 May 2016 18:55:12 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not close to a contract agreement with the New York Jets, but Jets WR Eric Decker said he expects Fitzpatrick to be the starting quarterback in the first regular season game.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are still interested in re-signing Fitzpatrick but are not willing to pay him what he is asking for at this point. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because Fitzpatrick would be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues and would help the fantasy value of Decker and Brandon Marshall.

Jets | Eric Decker talks Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:58:43 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker said the Jets need to be prepared to play without free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets). Decker does want New York to re-sign the veteran quarterback, but he's focused on the football team as a whole. "All I can say is we have to move on without him right now because they are stuck where they are with the business decision," Decker said. "But, again, we have a job to do and that's to be the best football team, field the best football team, of who we have in the locker room right now."

Fantasy Tip: Decker and the offense would be better off with Fitzpatrick back, but Decker is right. For now, Geno Smith will start at quarterback for the Jets, which would somewhat lessen the fantasy value and his cohorts like Brandon Marshall. That being said, Decker and Marshall are still in WR2 and WR1 territory, respectively, with Marshall having more value in PPR leagues.

Jets | Eric Decker scores another touchdown

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:51:49 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker caught five passes for 50 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Decker finished the season with at least one touchdown in each of his last four games. He finished the season with 977 yards and 11 touchdowns and could be an early- to middle-round option in most leagues.

Jets | WR duo good to go for Jets

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 11:27:18 -0800

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) and WR Eric Decker (knee) practiced fully Friday, Jan. 1, and are probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) has been unbelievable this season and is a WR1 consideration against the Buffalo Bills. Decker ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) is a solid WR2 candidate on FantasyScore.

Jets | Eric Decker, Brandon Marshall practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 11:47:42 -0800

New York Jets WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Decker ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) and Marshall ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) are two of the more productive receivers in the NFL this year. Both should be fine plays even at a high price on FantasyScore against a suspect Buffalo Bills defense that struggles to generate pressure on the quarterback.
