News: Decker (hamstring) caught 4-of-7 targets for 65 yards in Thursday's 27-25 loss to the Patriots. Impact: Decker spent much of the night matched up with CB Darrelle Revis, though it didn't appear that he was exclusively shadowed. Decker led the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards, as the Jets piled up 43 carries while Geno Smith spread his 34 pass attempts around. Decker seemed to make it through a second straight game without aggravating his hamstring, and the Jets will likely need to do quite a bit of passing against the Buffalo Bills' top-ranked rush defense next week. The former Bronco should thus get plenty of chances, as he's clearly the top option in Gang Green's oft-dormant passing game. Also worth noting is that Geno Smith played arguably his best game of the season Thursday night.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Patriots. Impact: After making it through this past Sunday's game against Denver without any reported setbacks, Decker is out there Thursday against the Patriots, though he could draw the coverage of ex-Jet Darrelle Revis. Still, on the heels of seeing a season-high 10 targets in Week 6, the wideout figures to see his share of looks in the Jets' offense again this week, assuming no setbacks with his hamstring.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Patriots, the Jets' official site reports. Impact: After making it through Week 6's game against Denver without any reported setbacks, Decker looks good to go Thursday against the Patriots. He saw a season-high 10 targets this past Sunday and figures to see his share of looks in the Jets' offense moving forward, assuming no further injury setbacks.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports. Impact: The 27-year-old made it through Sunday's game against Denver without a setback with the hamstring injury, and it seems he was limited Monday and Tuesday strictly for maintenance purposes, as he is fully expected to play against New England. Decker had a season-high six receptions on 10 targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Week 6, and he should continue to see frequent looks moving forward, but the Patriots currently rank third against the pass by giving up 208.5 yards per game.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Patriots, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Decker has battled with a hamstring injury throughout this season, but has only missed one game because of the ailment. The Jets' No. 1 wideout returned to catch six passes (on 10 targets) for 54 yards and a touchdown over the weekend, giving him consecutive appearances with a score. Even with this week's quick turnaround before facing the Patriots on Thursday, it appears Decker will be able to suit up.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) caught six passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Denver.

News: Decker caught six passes for 54 yards and a touchdown Sunday versus Denver. Impact: Decker's value continues to be limited with him not being at 100 percent due to a hamstring injury. With no other true downfield threats, the Jets have to rely on him regardless.(STATS, 1:32pm)

News: Decker (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Impact: Decker was only able to practice on a limited basis this week. The Jets offense has been a mess lately, but Decker is available if you want to take a gamble.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) partially participated in Friday's practice, but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Denver, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Impact: Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks Decker will be able to play against the Broncos, but admitted he was hoping to see more from Decker in practice. That is not especially encouraging for fantasy owners who have to weigh the upside of Decker facing Denver's 23rd-ranked pass defense against the risk of starting a potentially hobbled player who could play a limited snap count. Given New York's recent offensive ineptitude and erratic quarterback play, you should consider using a healthier replacement even if Decker is active on Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Walder adds that coach Rex Ryan thinks that Decker will suit up Sunday against the Broncos, a notion that would be supported by the wideout's continued practice participation on Friday, as well as the absence of any setbacks.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Impact: Decker starts the practice cycle in the same fashion that he did last week before suffering a setback with his hamstring. His participation Wednesday, in any capacity, nonetheless bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Broncos, his former team.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 2, 2014
News: Decker is active against the Denver Broncos and will start against his former team. Impact: Decker was questionable with an ailing right hamstring that has bothered him since Week 2 and caused him to sit out last Sunday's game at San Diego. Decker, who spent his first four seasons with Denver, will face the Broncos for the first time since signing with the Jets during the offseason.(STATS, 5:56pm)
