Decker (hamstring) partially participated in Friday's practice but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Denver, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
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 against 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, it might be best to find a healthier replacement even if Decker is active on Sunday.

Decker (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
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.

Decker (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Star-Ledger reports.
Decker, who is officially listed as questionable for the contest, did not practice either Thursday or Friday after aggravating his balky hamstring. As a result, his Week 5 status is cloudy in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff, as is that of fellow wideout David Nelson.

Decker (hamstring) did not appear to practice on Friday, according to Jane McManus of ESPN.com.
Listed as a non-participant at practice Thursday after his hamstring flared up, Decker's status for Sunday's game against the Chargers now appears cloudy, with an official questionable designation likely on tap for the wideout once the Jets' Week 5 injury report is released.

Decker (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.
With no reported setbacks Sunday against the Lions, we suspect that Decker's limitations Wednesday were maintenance-related. Decker was the busiest of the Jets' wideouts this past Sunday, playing 51 out of a possible 64 snaps on offense.

Decker (hamstring) had four catches on 10 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Lions.
The preseason talk regarding Decker's fantasy value centered on how well quarterback Geno Smith would be able to get him the ball, and through four weeks it is clear the concerns were accurate. Smith has greatly struggled this season, and especially Sunday, completing 17 passes versus 15 incompletions while turning the ball over three times. Decker does have two touchdowns in his last three games, but he has yet to record more than 75 receiving yards. He's also dealing with a hamstring injury, though he managed 10 targets Sunday. He remains the best receiving option on the team, but until Smith settles down, or Michael Vick takes over under center, Decker will continue to be an inconsistent fantasy option week-to-week.

Decker (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Decker is out there if you need him Sunday, but coach Rex Ryan previously suggested that the wideout's snaps will "probably be limited a little bit" Sunday and ESPN's Rich Cimini suggested that Decker could be a situational player in Week 4. In such a scenario, Jeremy Kerley �- who was targeted 11 times in Week 3 �- is a candidate to remain busy this weekend, should Decker see less than his usual complement of snaps.

Decker (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, the Jets' official site reports.
We'll track Decker's status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, but per the Star-Ledger, the wideout appears to have a solid shot to suit up Sunday, after being limited to just 12 snaps in Monday's game against the Bears. For his part, coach Rex Ryan noted Friday, "I feel good about him (playing Sunday)...He did more reps today than he did last week (on Friday)." That said, in the event that Decker does play Sunday, Ryan suggested that the wideout's snaps would "probably be limited a little bit."
