WR Eric Decker can return punts but Broncos want him running 35-40 pass routes a game.

Fantasy Impact: 

According to Pro Football Focus, Decker ran 505 pass routes in 15 games last season, which works out to 33.7 per game. With Kyle Orton under center for the first four games of the season, Decker racked up 20 catches for 270 yards and four TDs. Demaryius Thomas wasn't playing, but Brandon Lloyd was still on the team, so Decker's production with decent QB play (i.e. Orton) is reasonable proof that he has considerable upside now that Peyton Manning is in town. He looks like a good value in the 5th and a great value in the 6th.
