Titans | Eric Decker hauls in three

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 23:03:10 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker grabbed three passes for 37 yards in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: This is shaping up to be a bust of a season for Decker, who has only one game with better than 50 yards receiving this year. He has been targeted a measly 12 times over the last month and looks like an afterthought on offense. Steer clear.

Titans | Eric Decker held to two catches

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 14:55:41 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker caught two passes for 19 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has been able to post at least 50 yards in only one game this season and had only nine targets in his last three games. Owners in all leagues should avoid Decker until he is more productive.

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 15:00:22 -0800

Tennessee Titans OG Quinton Spain (toe) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 10.

Titans | Eric Decker not on injury list

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 14:59:32 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 10, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Decker recorded his first touchdown of the season last week but has been held to under 50 yards in seven of his eight games this season. He will continue to have a role in the passing game but is not one of the top targets in the passing game. Owners can consider benching Decker if they have better options available.

Titans | Eric Decker absent from practice

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 12:26:06 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (illness) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has a couple more days to get over his sickness and should be fine come Sunday. He caught his first touchdown of the year last week, but Decker has been mostly nonexistent in Tennessee's offense this year. With Corey Davis back and a deep receiving corps, Decker can't be trusted as a fantasy starter.

Titans | No practice for Eric Decker

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 17:14:00 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Decker is in any danger of missing the Week 10 game. He did find the end zone in Week 10 but has been held to under 35 yards in six of eight games in 2017. He could be a flex option or a bye week replacement for owners in deeper leagues.

Titans | Eric Decker blanked in OT win

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 13:59:26 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker did not have any receptions on two targets in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Decked showed some signs of life on Monday night against Indianapolis, posting seven grabs for a season-high 88 yards, so this was a huge disappointment. He has yet to find the end zone through seven games and now the team has a bye.

Titans | Eric Decker logs a few season highs

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 21:36:46 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker had his most productive game since joining the team over the offseason, recording season highs in receptions (seven), targets (nine) and receiving yards (88) in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, opposite the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: It was also his first time topping 50 yards in a game this season, so hopefully this will get the eight-year veteran going. The next step now for Decker is to find the end zone for the first time as a member of the Titans, but at least with Marcus Mariota back healthy already, he should get plenty of opportunities in the red zone. However, for the time being, he's more of a WR4 in most leagues.

Titans | Eric Decker finishes with 49 yards

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 20:46:22 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker finished with four catches on five targets for 49 yards in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: It was actually Decker's most productive game of the year, and if Corey Davis is sidelined again in Week 4, Decker could be a WR4 option against the Houston Texans.

Titans | Eric Decker, Rishard Matthews to start

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:42:54 -0700

Tennessee Titans WRs Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews are set to start in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks with rookie WR Corey Davis (hamstring) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has just six grabs for 42 yards through two games and he faces a tough Seattle secondary, so his fantasy value remains rather limited. Matthews has six grabs for 114 yards to date, and he is the Tennessee wideout to target in deeper fantasy leagues in Week 3.

Titans | Three grabs for Eric Decker

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 17:32:33 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker posted three receptions for 32 yards on five targets in Week 2 at Jacksonville.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has managed three catches in each of his first two games in Nashville but he has just 42 total yards. He'll obviously need much higher yardage totals to be useful in fantasy leagues going forward. The Titans face a tough matchup in Week 3 against the Seahawks defense.

Titans | Eric Decker takes part in practice

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 17:39:56 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Sept. 4, and is expected to play in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Decker probably will be one of the starting receivers for the Titans this season and should receive a good amount of targets. He has recorded at least 1,000 yards in three of the last five season and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Titans | Eric Decker back at practice

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 13:40:24 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) was back at practice Tuesday, Aug. 29. As reported earlier, he has a chance to play in the Titans' final preseason game this week.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has dealt with his fair share of injuries in his career, but has succeeded despite them. Time will tell who leads the Titans in receiving this year between Decker, Rishard Matthews and Corey Davis. All three, however, have the ability to achieve WR3 status.

Titans | Eric Decker could play in preseason game

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 16:23:08 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) has a chance to play in the final preseason game but a final decision has not been made, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Fantasy Tip: Decker would only see limited snaps if he is active for the preseason game but appears to be on track for Week 1. He should have a solid role in the passing game this season and can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.

Titans | Eric Decker will not play in dress rehearsal

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 10:25:19 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) has been ruled out for the team's third preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: There's been no indication how serious the ankle injury is, so we can probably assume for now the Titans are just being cautious with a veteran receiver. However, it is slightly concerning considering Decker missed most of last season with hip and shoulder injuries - both of which required surgery. Owners would be wise to keep tabs on his situation over the next two weeks leading into the regular-season opener. At the moment, he's a WR4 in fantasy.

Titans | Corey Davis, Eric Decker still out

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 18:02:55 -0700

Tennessee Titans WRs Corey Davis (hamstring) and Eric Decker (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Davis and Decker probably will sit out the final two preseason games and will look to play in Week 1. Both receivers should have solid roles in the passing game, but Decker could have a bigger role than Davis early in the season. Decker can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver, while Davis can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.

Titans | Eric Decker may play in next game

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 13:45:59 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) has a chance to play in the third preseason game, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Fantasy Tip: Decker suffered the injury last week and missed the second preseason game but probably will be able to play if he practices this week. He should be a top-three receiver for the Titans this season and can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.

Titans | Eric Decker to miss preseason game

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 17:00:23 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) will not play in the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Decker is dealing with a minor injury and probably will be ready for the start of the regular season. He has a good chance to be one of the team's starting receivers and should see a solid amount of targets. Decker can be considered a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver in leagues.

Titans | Eric Decker out of practice

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:14:45 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Decker twisted his ankle yesterday, but it's not expected to be serious. Decker is a low-end WR3, but he has much more upside as a WR4 as he could fall due to his recent injury history and age.

Titans | Eric Decker suffers injury

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 17:07:31 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during practice Wednesday, Aug. 16. Head coach Mike Mularkey said he does not believe Decker's injury is serious.

Fantasy Tip: Decker could miss the second preseason game because of the injury but does not appear to be in danger of missing the start of the regular season. He is expected to be a top-three receiver for the Titans this season and should see a solid amount of targets. He can be considered a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Titans | Eric Decker meshing with Marcus Mariota

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 17:49:24 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker has already built a "trust" with QB Marcus Mariota, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. "Just in this week of practice, they've connected a lot of times," Mularkey said. "So yeah, there's a chemistry there."

Fantasy Tip: Decker's experience should allow him to carve out a steady role in the passing game, especially if Corey Davis' hamstring injury lingers into the season. He is shaping up to be a low-end WR3.

Titans | Eric Decker lines up outside

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 20:12:53 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker lined up on the outside and in the slot with the first-team during practice Thursday, Aug. 3, after WR Corey Davis (hamstring) left with an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has shown a nose for the end zone in the past, and even when Davis is healthy, Decker could emerge as a decent flex play. Grab him as a WR4.

Titans | Eric Decker contract details

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 16:11:37 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker's one-year deal is worth up to $5.35 million, according to a source. The deal comes with a $2.5 million signing bonus, a $1.35 million salary and up to $1.50 million in incentives.

Fantasy Tip: It's a reasonable deal for a one-year contract. Decker will be able to contribute right away to an underrated offense. He even has a good opportunity to be the most productive wide receiver in Tennessee. Still, caution should be used. He'll be competing with Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis and Delanie Walker for targets. Decker has low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 appeal in his new stomping grounds.

Titans | Eric Decker joins Tennessee

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 17:59:34 -0700

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) has signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to a source. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Decker, coming off of a serious injury, is a risky fantasy buy in any format. The Titans have a host of weaponry now for Marcus Mariota, but each one of these wideouts will be tough to play any given week. Decker is a WR4 with flex consideration, unless it becomes clear early on that he has a rapport with Mariota.

Titans | Eric Decker leaves Titans visit

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 15:11:05 -0700

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) left his visit with the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, June 14, without a contract.

Fantasy Tip: Decker could still sign with the Titans but probably will meet with other teams before he makes a decision. Decker has been a terrific receiver over the last few seasons but was limited to three games in 2016. He probably would be a No. 3 receiver at worst with his new team and can be considered a No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver depending on his team.

Titans | Eric Decker visiting Tennessee

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 10:35:50 -0700

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) is meeting with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: A marriage between Decker and the Titans makes sense on a number of levels, not the least of which includes Decker and his wife - country singer Jessie James - owning a home in Nashville. It'd be a decent fantasy landing spot for Decker, although it would complicate a wide receiver depth chart that is becoming increasingly crowded with good, if not very good, options. The ex-Jet and Bronco would almost certainly top out as a WR3, fighting for targets along with Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker.

Jets | Eric Decker released

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 14:10:32 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker was released Monday, June 12, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Decker is now able to choose who he plays for, as opposed to if he were traded. Quincy Enunwa now officially heads the Jets' receiving corps. Guys like Robby Anderson, Jalin Marshall and Charone Peake will have an opportunity to start now, but Enunwa is the only Jets receiver with weekly flex potential.

Ravens | Baltimore may still pursue Eric Decker

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 12:56:21 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker could still be traded for or signed by the Baltimore Ravens even with the Ravens signing WR Jeremy Maclin.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore's receiving corps looks a lot better with Maclin, but they could use more help after losing Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and Dennis Pitta this offseason. Maclin's presence and the possible addition of Decker would certainly aid Flacco, but Flacco is too unreliable as a starting fantasy quarterback. Decker would remain in the WR3 to WR4 conversation.

Browns | Cleveland may consider Eric Decker

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 13:16:02 -0700

The Cleveland Browns may consider pursuing New York Jets WR Eric Decker when he is released, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Fantasy Tip: Decker was limited to three games in 2016 because of an injury but posted at least 1,000 yards in three of the previous four season and would help the Browns passing game. He likely would be a top-three receiver for the Browns if he signed, but he could be more of a No. 4 fantasy receiver because of the team's quarterback situation.

Jets | Eric Decker may stick around a bit longer

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 15:40:19 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker may stay with the Jets a little bit longer. He was originally scheduled to be released or traded early in the week, but speculation is the team is waiting to see where WR Jeremy Maclin ends up before making any moves.

Fantasy Tip: Don't plan on him to be a Jet much longer, but his fantasy value will depend on the eventual trade destination.

Vikings | Minnesota not pursuing Eric Decker

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 19:02:29 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker is not likely to be pursued by the Minnesota Vikings, according to general manager Rick Spielman. "We always look at everybody that is released, but we feel pretty confident with our receiving corps right now," Spielman said.

Fantasy Tip: Wherever Decker lands, he should at least be a serviceable WR3 thanks to his impact in the red zone. He has double-digit scores in three of his last five seasons.

Ravens | Baltimore possible for Eric Decker

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 09:19:55 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker will be traded or released this week. One of the teams the Jets are talking to regarding a possible trade are the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens could use another receiver to help out Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman. Wallace and Perriman are both top-notch deep threats and Decker would serve as more of a possession receiver. In Baltimore, Decker would garner WR3 consideration.

Jets | Eric Decker medically cleared

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 20:30:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Eric Decker is healthy following offseason hip and shoulder surgeries.

Fantasy Tip: Decker has been informed he will either be traded or released within the next two to three days. After initially appearing as if he might be out through training camp or longer, the 30-year-old is well ahead of schedule and should get a new lease on life in fantasy by getting out of New York. Decker will almost certainly start for whatever team signs him, and he figures to be no worse than a WR3 in fantasy wherever he lands.

Jets | Eric Decker no longer in Jets' plans

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 15:00:26 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker has been informed that he will either be released or traded this week, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets have suddenly turned into money mongers, releasing two of their veterans in the same week to add cap space. Quincy Enunwa will not head the Jets' measly receiving corps. Aside from Enunwa, Bilal Powell and Matt Forte, there's really no other Jet to be drafted for fantasy purposes.

Jets | Eric Decker spotted in non-contact jersey

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 09:40:28 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) did not have a red non-contact jersey for the start of practice Tuesday, June 6, but he put one on before the start in team drills.

Fantasy Tip: The fact Decker is even on the field is good news considering he is coming off multiple offseason surgeries. As a result, it appears he has a very good chance of practicing without restrictions when training camp rolls around next month. If he is anywhere close to his normal self, Decker should have no problem leading the team in receiving, but the Jets' quarterback situation makes him a weak WR3 option at best.

Jets | Eric Decker going full speed

Tue, 23 May 2017 08:23:03 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is participating in passing drills full speed Tuesday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Decker could be a forgotten man on draft day, but the 30-year-old could still have some magic left in the tank. Monitor his progress through camp and look for him as a WR4 or a WR5.

Jets | Quincy Enunwa may emerge as Jets' top option

Wed, 10 May 2017 20:23:36 -0700

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa believes he's going to have "an opportunity to do a lot more than he was able to do last year", and SNY's Ralph Vacchiano suggests the 24-year-old may be the team's top receiving option if WR Eric Decker can't make it all the way back from hip and shoulder surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Decker fully expects to be back by training camp, so this figures to be a non-story so long as the Jets don't designate make him a post-June cut, which seems unlikely at this point. Enunwa led the team with 857 receiving yards in 2016, and a repeat of that production at the very least seems possible whether Decker is playing or not. The third-year Nebraska product should be considered a WR5 in most fantasy leagues.

Jets | Eric Decker release looking less likely

Sun, 07 May 2017 10:37:39 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is still a candidate to be a post-June 1 cut, but ESPN's Rich Cimini would be "surprised" if the team ends up cutting him.

Fantasy Tip: Decker is due to make $7.25 million in 2017, so releasing him when he could stick around to take a significant amount of pressure off players like Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen would seem to hurt more the Jets' rebuilding project more than it would help. If he remains a Jet, Decker will likely be a hit-or-miss WR3 in fantasy.

Jets | Eric Decker expects to be ready for camp

Wed, 03 May 2017 09:05:05 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) has been a full participant in the team's offseason conditioning program and will be ready to practice at the start of training camp in July. "My health is good. I'm back and I'm doing everything right now. There are no (structural) issues. I'm just getting my strength back. But as far as everything else, I'm a full go," Decker said.

Fantasy Tip: Without Brandon Marshall around this year, Decker will go back to being the team's top wideout, assuming the Jets don't cut or trade him before Week 1 as had been rumored at the start of the offseason. His current quarterback situation isn't going to do him any favors, however, so he should be considered a middling WR3 at best in fantasy for now.

Jets | Eric Decker could still go

Fri, 07 Apr 2017 07:58:34 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder, hip) still has a large possibility of being with another team next season, in the opinion of beat writer Manish Mehta.

Fantasy Tip: Decker is now 30 years old, and he's coming off injuries to his shoulder and hip, and he had a knee injury late in 2015. He's still a reliable target, but his upside is fizzling. He's a WR4 for now.

Jets | Eric Decker likely to survive roster purge?

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 17:36:53 -0700

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is expected to get a chance to complete his rehab from hip and shoulder surgeries before the Jets decide whether to keep or release him, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Fantasy Tip: With all the lives they've made this offseason, the Jets are not hurting for salary cap room. New York may be doing himself a favor by keeping Decker, if only to make it a bit easier for whatever quarterback it decides to settle on in 2017. Given the current state of the Jets, Decker will be hard-pressed to maintain WR3 value this season.

Jets | Eric Decker able to do some running

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 15:06:42 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is able to run straight ahead and should be able to participate in the non-contact organized team activities this offseason, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan. Maccagnan said he believes Decker will be ready for the start of the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: Decker underwent two surgeries during the regular season and could be on the roster bubble once he recovers from the surgeries because of his salary. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the offseason to see if he suffers any setbacks. Decker can be a No. 2 receiver when he is healthy but probably would be a better option as a No. 3 receiver.

Jets | Eric Decker on the chopping block

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 21:05:22 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) could be cut this offseason whenever he passes his physical, according to beat writer Manish Mehta.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Marshall has already been released. If Decker also leaves, Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson could both be fantasy starters in 2017.

Jets | Eric Decker likely to miss camp

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 20:17:22 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) has a "good chance" of missing training camp.

Jets | Eric Decker a candidate to rework deal

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 12:08:17 -0800

New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) could be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because he is scheduled to count $8.75 million against the salary cap in 2017 and is coming off hip and shoulder injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Decker was limited to three games because of his injuries but was able to post 194 yards and two touchdowns in those games. He should be back with the Jets in 2017, but his value will depend on the team's quarterback. He probably should be considered a No. 3 receiver with the potential to be a No. 2 receiver.

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.
