2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Nov-12-2015 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (11/12): Decker has scored a touchdown in all but one game so far this season. He also missed a game due to injury, but when he's been on the field, he has been a great Fantasy option. He doesn't have the same high upside as his teammate Brandon Marshall due to the fact that he isn't seeing enough targets to patch together one excellent game. That said, if he's on your team, Decker is an excellent WR2 or an even better flex play if your team is stacked and that rings true across all formats.

In a way, Marshall will experience the same transformation that Decker experienced in 2014 after leaving the Denver Broncos for the Jets. Eric caught 172 passes between 2012 and 2013 for the Broncos for 2,352 yards and 24 touchdowns. In his first season on the Jets, he caught 74 balls for 962 yards and five TDs in just 15 games. With that one missed game added back, Decker should have accumulated about 80 catches and more than 1,000 total yards. That's still well off his Denver pace and shows the value of playing with a top quarterback in a well-oiled passing offense. Eric had six games with double-digit targets in 2014. However, he didn't post his first 100-yard receiving game until Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans as he caught seven passes for exactly 100 yards. His best game of the season came in Week 17 against the Dolphins (10 catches on 11 targets for 221 yards and a score). He gained 431 yards through his final four games of the year, but most of his fantasy owners were probably out of the playoff race by that point. The addition of Marshall will allow Decker to see weaker coverage, but it will also hurt his value unless the Jets throw the ball more. Overall, his 2015 results should fall in line with his 2014 stat line, just with a few more yards and TDs. I believe he'll gain more consistency from week to week.

7.03 FFToolbox - Feels underrated and undervalued to me. Geno Smith and Michael Vick aren't that great, but Decker isn't this bad.
