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 | 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.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) and Decker ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) have been consistent fantasy options for owners this season and should be starting options in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has caught a touchdown pass in each of the last three games and has at least five catches in eight of his last 10 games. Decker should be a solid starting option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

Jets | The big three are probable for the Jets

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 14:02:21 -0800

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and WRs Eric Decker (knee) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 25, and are probable for the Week 16 game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is a fringe starter in 12-team seasonal leagues, but you should be able to find better upside in his price range at FantasyScore. Decker ($7,100, 14.2%) and Marshall ($8,300, 16.6%) have both become must-start receivers in yearly formats, and while they're worth a look at FantasyScore this week, New England has only allowed 230.3 passing yards per game this season.
