Decker (quad) caught three passes for 34 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Friday's preseason game against the Giants.
Decker played well into the second half, catching his touchdown pass from Mike Vick. In addition to Decker proving his health, the Jets' first-team offense looked surprisingly good, with Geno Smith completing 9-of-14 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown. The Jets' quarterback play will likely determine Decker's value, as the 27-year-old wideout is a proven commodity with no questions about his role.

Decker (quadriceps) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, the New York Daily News reports.
Decker has recently been limited in practice and also missed Saturday's preseason game to rest a quadriceps ailment. However, since the issue isn't considered serious, Decker should be able to suit up Saturday, when he'll work as the Jets' No. 1 wide receiver.

Decker (quadriceps) participated in team drills during Tuesday's practice, ESPN reports.
Decker's quad ailment limited him to positional drills during the Jets' last three practices. Now feeling better, New York's No. 1 wideout joined the starters for scrimmage work on Tuesday. Decker will continue to build chemistry with the Jets' quarterbacks throughout the preseason, which should result in him being the team's most sought after pass-catcher in fantasy circles this season.

Decker (quadriceps) featured in positional drills Monday, the New York Daily News reports.
Decker hasn't participated in team drills since Thursday's preseason debut due to a minor quad concern. However, since the ailment isn't serious, Decker is still able to go through receiver drills, keeping his rep-count somewhat steady. With the Jets' next exhibition game not until Saturday, Decker could keep things light to remain available to play in preseason action and build chemistry with his new quarterback teammates.

Decker didn't practice Saturday due to an injured quadriceps, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
Decker's debut as a Jet on Thursday was subdued, as he hauled in both targets for just 12 yards. The exchange of Peyton Manning for the combo of Mike Vick and Geno Smith was supposed to be alleviated by featuring as a No. 1 wide receiver, but a third consecutive 1,000 yard, double-digit touchdown campaign may be difficult to expect. Any injuries would hinder Decker's chances of the three-peat.

Jets signed WR Eric Decker, formerly of the Broncos.
Decker, 27, set career highs in catches (87) and receiving yards (1,288 yards) with Denver last season, scoring 11 touchdowns. He caught a lot of heat during the free-agent period after experiencing a colder-than-expected market, but is a much-needed addition to the Jets' otherwise barren receiver corps. Decker is a physical, largely sure-handed wideout who moves the chains and can beat defensive backs deep. Unfortunately, he's downgrading quarterbacks in spectacular fashion going from Peyton Manning to Geno Smith, and will be the focus of defensive attention in New York after serving as Manning's No. 3 or 4 option. He'd do well to get back near 1,000 yards with the Jets. Decker will be a borderline WR3 in fantasy this season.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports the Jets are "making a push" to sign free agent Eric Decker during his Wednesday visit.
The Jets may feel some urgency to make a splash after the division-rival Patriots scooped up Darrelle Revis. Decker is currently in New Jersey having dinner with Jets executives. Decker has not generated the free-agent market most anticipated, but we still expect him to sign for something in the $7-8 million per-year range. Anything less would be a coup by second-year GM John Idzik.
