Peyton Manning "impressed" with Eric Decker

ESPN - [Full Article]

Peyton Manning is clearly impressed with third-year receiver Eric Decker. Manning called Decker the “veteran” of the receivers group and spoke highly of him. Manning said the coaching staff wants to move Decker around and use him in several different ways. Decker and Demaryius Thomas are Denver’s starting receivers. Manning said the group, as a whole, seems to be a hardworking unit.

Fantasy Impact: 

Thomas will get most of the buzz this offseason given the way he finished the 2011 season, but that may allow Eric Decker to fly under the radar. Thomas hasn't been able to practice with Manning due to a finger surgery. Both players get a huge boost with Manning under center.
