by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (4/17/13) Broncos receiver Eric Decker was asked Wednesday if he's concerned that his stats will decline following the addition of Wes Welker as a free agent this offseason. "Ultimately, there may be some passes or targets that are taken away, but in the grand scheme of things its about winning football games," Decker said. "I want to get to the World Championship. I want to have a ring on my finger. If thats the case if I lose some catches, if I lose some yards it really isnt a big deal to me personally because of what our ultimate goal is here. Decker also said having Welker on the field could help him. Depending on the game and the defensive scheme that goes against us, you may see more one-on-one coverages," Decker said. "You may see opportunities in certain plays and certain calls that you didnt see as much last year. Thats something were going to build off."

Looking to enhance your Fantasy Football experience? Want to give your commissioner a few cool ideas to contemplate? Dave Richard shares some unique and rewarding tweaks to your leagues.
Eric Decker, as expected, had a breakout campaign in 2012. It was his third year in the NFL, and he was paired with a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Peyton Manning. He broke out with career highs in catches (85), yards (1,064) and touchdowns (13). Decker had double digits in Fantasy points eight times, including three in a row to close the season, and he finished with 122 targets. Decker is technically No. 2 on the depth chart at receiver behind Demaryius Thomas, but they are essentially 1 and 1A. Decker now enters a potential contract year as his rookie deal is set to expire after this season. He also has to share production with new addition Wes Welker. That will cut into Decker's totals, but he's not going to disappear. The incentive of a new deal, along with another year playing with Manning, could help Decker shine this season. He should be considered a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and he's worth drafting as early as Round 4 in the majority of leagues. (Updated 5/29/13)
