Jets' No. 2 receiver remains a mystery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Eric Decker will enter the season as the Jets' top receiver, but who is No. 2? The team did not draft a high-profile wideout. Jeremy Kerley is better in the slot and Stephen Hill can't be counted on, according to ESPN.com. 

That leaves the Jets hoping one or more of the receivers they drafted will develop fast. Fourth-rounder Jalen Saunders is "small and shifty," and fellow fourth-rounder Shaq Evans "had five touchdown catches of 54-plus yards in his career," the website notes. Sixth-rounder Quincy Enunwa "set a Nebraska single-season record with 12 touchdowns, including a 99-yarder in the Gator Bowl."

All will get a chance to state their case in minicamp and training camp.


Eric Decker might be Jets' No. 1 WR, but he won't be in Fantasy


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) The past two seasons have been great for Eric Decker as he's posted over 1,000 yards and 11-plus touchdowns in each. Hitting those marks for a third straight season now that he's signed with the Jets seems very far fetched. 

Let's start with the obvious: Decker won't have Peyton Manning throwing him passes anymore. Now it'll be at the very worst Geno Smith and at the very best a free agent like Michael Vick. That's a huge step down. As you'll read in some analysis coming to the site soon, I credit Manning with helping Decker put up big numbers. Playing in a strong offense opposite Demaryius Thomas doesn't hurt things either. 

In that same analysis you'll see that I'm not a huge fan of Decker's game. In short, his best quality is his size but he doesn't always use it to his advantage. He also doesn't have speed or hands worthy of a $15 million signing bonus. 

Every year we see big-name receivers change teams via free agency and most of the time they struggle to meet expectations. My expectations for Decker in 2014 are for maybe 1,000 yards but well under 11 touchdowns -- maybe six. I'd consider him a borderline No. 2/No. 3 Fantasy wideout. 


Jets announce Eric Decker signing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Jets announced late Wednesday they have agreed to terms on a long-term deal with free-agent wide receiver Eric Decker. Terms of the dealn are not yet known.

Decker is coming off consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, though he was working as a second option in an offense headed by a future Hall of Fame quarterback. He will step into the No. 1 role for the Jets having put up 172 receptions, 2,352 yards and 24 touchdowns over the previous two seasons combined. 


Eric Decker a 'priority' for the Jets


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/12/2014) The Jets have determined that signing free agent receiver Eric Decker is a "priority," ESPN's Adam Schefter said via Newsday. Decker remains one of the top free-agent receivers on the market following consecutive 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown seasons with the Broncos. 

Eric Decker visiting Jets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Report: Broncos can't go beyond $6M annually for Eric Decker


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) The Broncos love Eric Decker as their No. 2 receiver but are unlikely to offer him more than $6 million annually, reports the Denver Post. "It's understandable, because they already are paying $6 million to slot receiver Wes Welker this year and are possibly confronting another $19 million combined for Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas next year," the report said.

Decker is expected to leave via free agency.


Eric Decker could be too expensive for Broncos


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/5/2014) Receiver Eric Decker is set to become a free agent this offseason, and he would like to return to the Broncos, reports the Denver Post. But money could make that difficult.

The report says Decker is expected to command a multi-year contract worth $8 million to $9 million per year. The two sides met at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis to discuss a new deal, but Broncos general manager John Elways has said Decker will be allowed to test the market to determine his value.

"I respect his decision," Decker said. "Obviously, he has a philosophy in the way he does business. We'll see what it brings."


Colts eyeing Eric Decker


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Broncos receiver Eric Decker, an impending free agent, is drawing interest from the Colts, reports WCNC-TV. The Broncos probably won't be able to afford Decker, making him one of free agency's hottest commodities.

If Decker joins the Colts, he'd give Andrew Luck a powerful weapon to complement speedster T.Y. Hilton and 35-year-old possession receiver Reggie Wayne.


Eric Decker to hit open market as expected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Broncos confirmed receiver Eric Decker will hit the free agent market, along with running back Knowshon Moreno, reports ESPN.com. "I think they have to hit the market, the market sets those, especially when you look where we are and what we have coming up," general manager John Elway said.

Elway referred to the fact that Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Wes Welker all are entering the final year of their contracts.
