Eric Decker nets 100 receiving yards in win Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) For the first time as a player for the Jets, wide receiver Eric Decker reached 100 receiving yards in a game.

Decker was targeted a team-high 11 times and hauled in seven receptions for 100 yards during a 16-11 win against the Titans Week 15. 

The seven receptions were most Decker has caught since catching nine passes Nov. 2 against the Chiefs which is also the last time Decker reached the end zone.

In Week 16, the Jets host the Patriots.


Jets' Eric Decker produces 89 receiving yards Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) After being held to 18 receiving yards the previous week, Jets wide receiver Eric Decker was able to produce 89 receiving yards in a 30-24 loss to the Vikings Sunday.

Decker hauled in six receptions on eight targets, but did not reach the end zone for the fourth consecutive week. Decker has yet to surpass more than 100 receiving yards in a game this season.

The Jets will play at Tennessee Week 15.


No signs of improvement for Eric Decker


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker has had flashed of productivity, but after the Jets' miserable passing game bottomed out in Week 13, it's fair to say Fantasy owners should finally abandon this sinking ship.

Decker had just two receptions for 18 yards Monday, and is now on pace for his worst season since 2011. That was to be expected with the dropoff from Peyton Manning to the Jets' duo of subpar passers, but the depths to which he has fallen are truly unexpected. Decker has just 105 yards receiving over the last three games, and had just four passes thrown his way Monday, as the Jets nearly abandoned the passing game entirely.

Decker is still owned in 87 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, despite his subpar season. At this point, it's clear the passing game is not a big part of the Jets' plans, and Decker has little value. If you need to make a roster move ahead of the playoffs, Decker is certainly someone you can drop at this point. 


Jets' receivers don't get many opportunities on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) With the Jets throwing 13 times Monday night, New York's receivers didn't get many opportunities.

Wideout Percy Harvin caught one of three targets for 6 yards and rushed six times for 27 yards. Tight end Zach Sudfeld made a 20-yard catch. Wideout Eric Decker caught two of four targets for 18 yards. Receiver Jeremy Kerley had a 2-yard reception and ran twice for 38 yards.

They'll all visit the Vikings in Week 14.


Eric Decker among Jets' probables cleared for MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Jets wideout Eric Decker, who was probable with a toe injury, is active for Monday's game against the Dolphins.

All the other Jets who were probable also are active, including guard Oday Aboushi (shoulder), linebacker Antwan Barnes (knee), guard Willie Colon (knee), running back John Conner (groin), defensive end Leger Douzable (ankle), linebacker David Harris (shoulder), safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf), center Nick Mangold (shoulder), defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (low back) and quarterback Michael Vick (wrist, illness).


Probables dominate injury report released by Jets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2014) The Jets have ruled out defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (toe) and tight end Jace Amaro (concussion) for the Monday night game against Miami.

The team is otherwise healthy. All others on their injury report are probable, including quarterback Michael Vick (wrist) and running backs Chris Ivory (shoulder), Chris Johnson (knee), Bilal Powell (illness) and John Conner (groin). The other offensive probables are linemen Nick Mangold (shoulder), Oday Aboushi (shoulder) and Willie Colon (knee) and wideout Eric Decker (toe).

The defensive probables are linebackers Antwan Barnes (knee) and David Harris (shoulder), defensive back Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf) and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson (back).


Eric Decker goes for 63 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Jets wideout Eric Decker drew a team-high eight targets in Monday's loss to the Bills, catching four passes for 63 yards. Decker nearly had a 69-yard touchdown right before halftime, but he could not haul in Michael Vick's slightly overthrown pass.

Still looking for his first 100-game this season, Decker plays the Dolphins in Week 13.


Jets' Eric Decker admits 'it's hard to watch' former team


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker indicated this week it's difficult to watch his former team -- the Broncos -- since they continue to enjoy a successful run, according to the New York Daily News.

"Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to watch them when they’re playing," Decker said. "When they’re clicking on all cylinders, they’re a tough football team. They got the right pieces."

Decker also commented on the success of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who was signed in free agency to replace Decker. Sanders has totaled 67 catches for 954 yards and seven touchdowns through 10 games.

"Emmanuel Sanders is playing well in my spot, so to speak," Decker said. "Sometimes, you know, it’s tough to see all the success. But that’s football. It’s going to go in swings. Who says we can’t be a great football team? We got to obviously do some right things to get there, but I’m happy for Peyton and Demaryius (Thomas). I respect them so much. They’re all good friends, so I like to see them do well, but sometimes it’s hard."


Jets list 11 players as probable for Monday night


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) Following a bye week, the Jets appear well rested heading into Week 12. The Jets listed offensive lineman Oday Aboushi (shoulder), wide receiver Eric Decker (hamstring), wide receiver Greg Salas (wrist), running back Chris Ivory (shoulder), running back Chris Johnson (knee), wide receiver T.J. Graham (neck), offensive lineman Willie Colon (knee), center Nick Mangold (shoulder), linebacker Antwan Barnes (knee), defensive back Darrin Walls (calf) and defensive back Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf) as probable for Monday night’s game against Buffalo.

Pair of Jets receivers help out in Sunday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Two Jets receivers pitched in to the upset defeat of the Steelers on Sunday. The most significant was tight end Jace Amaro, who caught just two passes for six yards, but snagged a 5-yarder in the back of the end zone to stretch the lead to 17-0. It was his second score of the season.

The other was Eric Decker, who proved disappointing with just three receptions for 24 yards after not being targeted in the first half.

Both can rest up as the team begins its bye week.


Eric Decker looks good with Michael Vick


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Working with a new starting quarterback in Michael Vick, wide receiver Eric Decker was as productive as he's ever been for the Jets Week 9 at Kansas City, making a season-high nine catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. His 12 targets were one off the team lead and gave him 25 over the last two weeks.

Considering Vick also played most of Week 8 against Buffalo, it's safe to say he really likes throwing Decker the ball. And that's even with another big mouth to feed in newcomer Percy Harvin, who led the Jets in both targets (13) and receptions (11) in Week 9.

Of course, Decker's yards per catch don't look like they'll improve with Vick -- he still has just one 70-yard game this season -- but at least in PPR leagues, he's looking like a decent start, especially since he's the preferred target in the red zone (for as little time as the Jets spend there).


Jets WR Eric Decker up to four touchdowns on season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker hauled in his fourth touchdown of the season during a 24-10 loss Week 9 at Kansas City. Decker, who was targeted 12 times, finished with a season-best nine catches for 63 yards.

Decker recorded the Jets' only touchdown on a 3-yard reception in the second quarter. It was Michael Vick's first passing touchdown in his first start this season. The 63 yards tied a season high for Decker.

The Jets are back in action Week 10 vs. Pittsburgh.


13 of 15 Jets players on injury report ruled probable for Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Jets enter Week 9 against the Chiefs relatively healthy. Out of 15 players listed on the injury report, Darrin Walls (calf, knee) was ruled doubtful for Sunday.Geno Smith (shoulder) was labeled questionable.

The other 13 players were deemed probable: Oday Aboushi (shoulder), Phillip Adams (groin), Antwan Barnes (knee), Willie Colon (knee), Jeff Cumberland (shoulder, finger), Demario Davis (finger), Eric Decker (hamstring), David Harris (shoulder), Chris Johnson (ankle), Jeremy Kerley (illness), Nick Mangold (shoulder), Trevor Reilly (knee) and Greg Salas (wrist, ankle).


Jets WR Eric Decker upset with season so far


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker has gone from Super Bowl champion to just another struggling player with the Jets. And he's not happy about it.

"I've gotta be honest with you. I did not see us at this point, in gthe offseason," he told NJ.com. "We have the pieces. We just aren't obviously performing on the field. Execution is the name of the game in this league. The talent level is so even throughout the league that you can't make mistakes. We've made too many mistakes."

Decker, who racked up 2,352 yards and 24 touchdowns receiving the last two seasons combined with Denver, has just 31 catches for 363 yards this year and missed Week 5 with a hamstring injury. His disappointment, therefore, does not begin and end with his new team.

"It's not what I expected from myself," he added. "...Statistics, you can look at it and say that it hasn't been great. Statistics can be blown up as well. The statistic I look at is the wins-loss column and personally I don't think we've done enough in the locker room to accomplish that feat and get more W's."


Eric Decker has team-high seven catches in tepid Week 8 air attack


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker had a team-high seven catches on 11 targets for 40 yards in his team's 43-23 loss to the Bills in Week 8.

It was an all-around abysmal performance for the Jets passing attack, as two quarterbacks combined for six turnovers while averaging just 2.9 yards per pass attempt. Decker's yardage total was surpassed only by tight end Jace Amaro, who caught all five of his targets for 51 yards. Jeremy Kerley could muster just two catches on five targets for 25 yards.

The Jets will hit the road to face the Chiefs in Week 9.


Jets' Eric Decker, Chris Johnson among probables active Week 8


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) All ten Jets players listed as probable on the team's final injury report are active for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Bills, including wide receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) and Chris Johnson (ankle).

Though the roster is stocked with players dealing with bumps and bruises, the Jets are relatively healthy for the intradivision battle. Also active Sunday are running back Bilal Powell (foot), center Nick Mangold (shoulder), guards Willie Colon (knee) and Oday Aboushi (shoulder), linebackers David Harris (shoulder) and Antwan Barnes (knee) and cornerbacks Phillip Adams (groin) and Darrin Walls (knee).


Jets relatively healthy entering Week 8 against Bills


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Jets enter Week 8 at home against Buffalo relatively healthy despite having 12 players on the final injury report for Sunday's game. Trevor Reilly (knee) and Greg Salas (wrist, ankle) were the only players deemed questionable for the game.

The following players were labeled probable: Oday Aboushi (shoulder), Phillip Adams (groin), Antwan Barnes (knee), Willie Colon (knee), Eric Decker (hamstring), David Harris (shoulder), Chris Johnson (ankle), Nick Mangold (shoulder), Bilal Powell (foot) and Darrin Walls (knee).

Eric Decker's circumstances are changing with Harvin on board


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Despite poor quarterback play and little help from the rest of the receiving corps, Jets wide receiver Eric Decker has managed to stay relevant in Fantasy. But in those weeks when he goes without a touchdown, such as Week 7 at New England, his yardage alone isn't enough to sustain his Fantasy owners.

His circumstances could change with the Jets welcoming Percy Harvin to the roster Week 8 against Buffalo. Now, defenses have someone else to fear, and on plays when Decker and Harvin are on the field together, Decker will get as little attention from them as he has gotten all year.

That should bode well for his numbers in the long run. How quickly it'll take effect remains to be seen, but because the Bills are so good against the run, allowing just 80.4 yards per game and 3.2 yards per carry, the Jets may try to throw the ball more than usual, making Decker an intriguing option for this week.

In leagues with 12 teams or fewer, he'll probably never be must-start, but Dave Richard is willing to rank him as high as 19th for this week.


Jets' Eric Decker unable to extend scoring streak to three game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker was unable to extend his scoring streak to three games Thursday night against the Patriots in Week 7.

Decker made a 24-yard catch in the first quarter while being shadowed by Darrelle Revis. He was limited to only two grabs for 33 yards in the first half. He beat Revis again for an 18-yard grab on the opening drive of the second half which led to a Chris Ivory touchdown in the third quarter.

Decker was targeted seven times and finished with four grabs for 65 yards, averaging 16.3 yards per grab in a 27-25 defeat. He has 323 receiving yards through six games.

The Jets will host the Bills in Week 8.


Four offensive stars given the green light for Jets in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The following offensive players have received the green light for the Jets Week 7 at New England: Tight end Jace Amaro (knee), Eric Decker (hamstring), Chris Johnson (ankle) and David Nelson (ankle).

Take a pass on Eric Decker


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker is probably going to play Thursday night. That's not a report but my educated guess after he not only played through the same injury in Week 6 but played well, catching six passes for 54 yards and a touchdown.

So does that mean you start him in Fantasy? He's been the go-to guy in the Jets passing attack, scoring a touchdown in three of the last four games, and no doubt you want a piece of that sweet action. The problem is it could easily go sour with this matchup.

The Patriots have Darrelle Revis, after all, and Revis' M.O. is taking the opponents' best wide receiver out of the ballgame. It's what he did Week 6 at Buffalo, limiting Sammy Watkins to two catches on three targets for 27 yards.

Watkins is more talented than Decker, and with Geno Smith as his quarterback, I'm amazed any time Decker gets him the ball as it is. Against the team that has allowed the fifth-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season, I'd take a pass on him.


Jets injury report for Thursday dominated by probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) A rather lengthy Jets injury report for their Thursday game against the Patriots is dominated by probables. The lone exceptions are wide receiver Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) and linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), both of whom have been ruled out.

The probables are tight end Jace Amaro (knee), guard Willie Colon (knee), wideouts David Nelson (ankle) and Eric Decker (hamstring), tackle Breno Giacomini (back), defensive lineman Damon Harrison (ankle), running back Chris Johnson (ankle), center Nick Mangold (shoulder) and cornerback Darrin Walls (knee).


Jets WR Eric Decker confident he'll play Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) is confident he'll play in Thursday's Week 7 matchup with the Patriots, ESPN.com reports.

"It’s something that obviously you need to stay on top of, because at any time it can come back, and I guess (you can) aggravate it (again) or (it can) just swell up a little bit," Decker said. "Obviously I am doing all the right things and working with the training staff to make sure that my strength is good and flexibility, all those things are good."

Decker was limited in practice Tuesday. He caught six of his 10 targets against the Broncos Sunday for 54 yards and a touchdown.
