2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update (7/28): Decker's best shot at duplicating the success he enjoyed last season was with the return of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Lucky for both of them, Fitzpatrick will be back under center in 2016.

The best thing that happened for Decker in 2015 was the addition of Marshall. This created better matchups all around while removing some attention at the goal line. His production stepped back in 2014 (74/962/5) due to weak QB play and lack of complementary WRs on the Jets. Over the last four years, Eric has averaged 82 catches for 1085 yards and 10 TDs while averaging 126 targets. In 2015, Decker scored a TD in 12 different games, which allowed him to deliver a high level of consistency. Even with his plus success, Eric only had one game with 100+ yards receiving. He did miss one game due knee issue, and the injury did linger all season. Decker had a strong skill set that works much better as a WR2 in the real football world. His game even has more explosiveness if a defense wanted to take away Marshall. His skill set and opportunity is a step below a WR1 in the Fantasy market in PPR leagues. I like the direction of Jets' offense, and I expect another solid success with a chance at 90 catches for 1300 yards and double digit TDs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
4.02 Jerry Colvin - Decker has had or 10 more TD passes in three out of his last four seasons including 12 last year. I see no reason he cannot get me 10 again.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
4.05 Scout Fantasy - Shawn Childs - I felt the WR pool had a dropoff after Decker in this draft and the RB options still had some question marks so Decker was a nice steady WR3 in this format.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
4.08 Cowboys HQ - Matthew Postins - If the Jets hadn't finally signed Ryan Fitzpatrick, I would have passed here. But with Fitz throwing the ball last year Decker had 132 targets, 80 receptions, 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns. Plus Brandon Marshall being on the opposite side means Decker gets single coverage. Gimme.
