Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot, knee, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 3.

If Marshall is out, we’ll be bumping both Decker and Enunwa up in the rankings. Unfortunately, the Jets play in the late round of games on Sunday. Enunwa (ribs) took full practice reps all week.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall not at practice

NJ.com - [Full Article]

WR Brandon Marshall (sprained knee): He wasn't even at practice during warmups, so it looked like he wouldn't practice Monday. Jets coach Todd Bowles has described Marshall's injury as a minor sprain.

WR Eric Decker (unknown): Didn't have his helmet during stretching, though he participated in the warmups.

Fantasy Impact:

Keep in mind these was observations from a 30-minute open media session. It looked like a serious knee injury for Marshall during last Thursday night's game, but Marshall eventually came back to play and played well. He should be good for Week 3 and this seem like the team just giving him some extra time off. But we'll know more later in the week.

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa gives team new dynamic

ESPN - [Full Article]

In Quincy Enunwa, the Jets have found a legitimate No. 3 option, a pass-catcher good enough to make a defense pay a price for overplaying Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall.

"That's what we didn't have last year," Marshall said. "We didn't have a No. 3 guy, we didn't have a No. 4 guy. Quincy was our unsung hero last year, but it was just in the running game. Now we're getting him involved in the passing game."

Fantasy Impact:

After two games, Enunwa leads the team with 13 receptions, the kind of production that might cause opponents to re-think their strategy. He's the key to their passing offense, according to Marshall. Adding a third weapon to the pass game could mean less targets for Decker and Marshall but in the end should help them be able to take advantage of the targets they do get. All three had solid games in Week 2 against the Bills.

Jets say WR Eric Decker will 'surprise a lot of people' with his ability to 'get deep'

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Eric Decker isn't known as a deep receiver. Never has been. Sure-handed? Absolutely. Superb route runner? Definitely. Technically sound? 100 percent. But for all the things Decker is, he's not regarded as a player that can stretch the field.

The Jets, this season, are hoping to change that perception.

"You'll see more of that this year," Jets receivers coach Karl Dorrell said Wednesday. "Eric will surprise a lot of people."

"Eric can get deep," Dorrell said. "He can sneak by you and do those things."

This year, the Jets are expanding Decker's role. Anyone who attended a Jets training camp practice could tell you that.

Fantasy Impact:

Decker runs a 4.60 40-yard dash and isn't known as a speedster, but with his 6'3" frame he can compete for long passes downfield. He's the 24th WR off the board after finishing the season as the #10 WR. Now that Ryan Fitzpatrick is back, not much will change for the Jets and Decker was the most consistent fantasy receiver last season, posting 80-plus yards and/or a touchdown in each of his 15 games played. He's a great value in the 4th round.
