Jets receivers coach Sanjay Lal really likes his newest addition, Eric Decker. And for good reason. Decker was the best free agent receiver available this year, and the Jets desperately needed receivers. So they went out and got him, and he instantly became the best player in Lal’s meeting room.
So far, through the first four training camp practices, Decker has performed on the field about as well as the Jets could have hoped. He has yet to drop a pass. Off the field, he has, by all indications, shown diligence in learning the Jets West Coast offense.
The big question with Decker is what can he do without Peyton Manning throwing him the football. Backers of Decker point to the fact he caught 8 TDs in 2011 before Manning joined the Broncos. But now Decker will be facing team's top corners, although he's likely to get more targets. Still, Decker is ranked 31st on our WR list, which makes him a high-end WR3/low-end WR2. He should be a solid mid-round option for your fantasy team.
