  Patriots | Eric Decker in jeopardy of not making team?    Sun Aug 26, 11:25 AM

New England Patriots WR Eric Decker does not appear to be a guarantee to make the team's 53-man roster, in the opinion of Andy Hart of Patriots.com. During the preseason game versus the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 24, Decker did not play with the first-team offense and was targeted five times but only had two catches.

Footballguys view: Decker has done nothing to deserve a spot. If you are going to take a Patriots receiver late, make it Phillip Dorsett or Cordarrelle Patterson.

  Patriots | Eric Decker's hands in question    Tue Aug 14, 09:36 AM

New England Patriots WR Eric Decker dropped the first pass QB Tom Brady threw him last week, dropped two more Sunday, Aug. 12, and three more Monday, Aug. 13. After his drops, Decker appeared to run the wrong route when Brady first targeted him in 11-on-11s. He ended practice with four catches in a row, however.

Footballguys view: There was some hope that Decker could fill the big slot role when he was signed, but it sounds like he's not even a sure thing to make the team right now.

  Patriots | Eric Decker a potential starter?    Sun Aug 5, 09:17 PM

New England Patriots WR Eric Decker and WR Malcolm Mitchell are both listed as the backups to WR Julian Edelman on the first depth chart released Sunday. Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: Decker should be in line to start at the beginning of the year when Edelman is suspended. That's going to be a fantasy relevant position/situation for whoever that guy is. If it's Decker, we could see him produce like a solid flex play for Fantasy GMs during that time.

  Patriots | Eric Decker contract update    Sat Aug 4, 03:44 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Eric Decker's one-year deal is worth $1.9 million, according to a source. Decker could make as much as $2.5 million depending on his reception totals.

Footballguys view: Decker is a seasoned veteran and shouldn't take too long to get up to speed with the Patriots. His precise route running should make him a favorite of Tom Brady. During Julian Edelman's four-game suspension, we might see Decker have a flex-worthy role in this offense.

  Patriots | Eric Decker joining Patriots    Thu Aug 2, 12:34 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) is expected to sign a one-year deal with the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 2, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Decker was terrible with the Tennessee Titans last season and while we always give Bill Belichick the benefit of the doubt when it comes to revitalizing a player's career, he just didn't look like the player who had 1,000 yards in 2015. That said, Julian Edelman is suspended to start the season, and outside of Chris Hogan and Rob Gronkowski, targets are up for grabs. We'll keep an eye on Decker and could be more interested once we've seen him at practice.

  Patriots | Eric Decker of interest to Patriots    Wed Aug 1, 11:06 AM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) is receiving continued interest from the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: With Jordan Matthews released, Decker becomes an interesting name to monitor as a potential replacement for Julian Edelman for Weeks 1-4. He has a similar game to Matthews.

  Patriots | Erick Decker worked out for Pats    Tue Jul 31, 04:45 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) worked out for the New England Patriots Monday, July 30, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Decker didn't do much last year in his one season with the Titans and he's no longer the same player he used to be. The veteran was drafted by Pats OC Josh McDaniels (back when he was the head coach of the Broncos in 2010) and Decker has previously stated that he would love to play for the Patriots. They could be updating their emergency list or they could have real interest in adding Decker. Stay tuned.

  Patriots | Eric Decker open to Patriots    Wed Jun 20, 01:43 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) said he would love to play for the New England Patriots, adding that he talked to the Patriots last offseason during free agency before signing with the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Decker has only gotten a couple of teams interested in his services this offseason as he's worked out for the Ravens and the Raiders. He's not the same player he used to be but Decker could bring veteran depth to any team interested. Decker and Patriots OC Josh McDaniels have a history as it was a McDaniels-led Broncos team that selected Decker out of Minnesota in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft.

  Ravens | Eric Decker visiting Ravens    Thu Apr 5, 10:29 AM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) is visiting the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, April 5.

Footballguys view: Decker definitely took a step back last season, and was coming off a significant injury suffered in 2016. He still could have a little more in the tank, but we don't expect 2012-2015 numbers when he was hitting 1,000 yards regularly.

  Broncos | Eric Decker hoping for a Denver reunion?    Mon Apr 2, 08:04 PM

  Saints | Eric Decker not meeting with Saints    Tue Mar 20, 02:30 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) is not visiting the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, March 20. It had been reported elsewhere that Decker was on his way to visit New Orleans.

Footballguys view: Sean Payton was a bit nasty on Twitter when he shot down the report. Decker is making the rounds after getting let go by the Titans. The Saints would have been an interesting fit, but it sounds like the team is not going to bring him in for a visit at this time.

  Raiders | Eric Decker to meet with Oakland    Tue Mar 20, 12:28 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Titans) is expected to visit the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, March 20.

Footballguys view: Decker came into the league in the AFC West with the Broncos. He could serve as a no3 WR for the Raiders behind Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson.

  Titans | Eric Decker logs 85 yards    Sun Jan 14, 12:07 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker caught six passes on seven targets for 85 yards in a 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 13.

Footballguys view: Decker had a very disappointing year for the Titans after some excitement following his signing, but he was coming off of multiple offseason surgeries. Perhaps he could have more fantasy value in 2018 in a less underachieving offense.

  Titans | Eric Decker likely will play    Sat Dec 30, 03:21 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (hamstring) should be able to play in Week 17 even though he was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 29, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Decker has been solid over the last three weeks with over 50 yards receiving in each contest. He's only scored one touchdown so far in 2017, but he should get a handful of targets against the Jaguars in the season finale.

  Titans | Eric Decker totals six receptions    Sun Dec 24, 05:52 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker racked up six receptions for 73 yards on 10 targets in the Week 16 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Decker has been a non-factor for a lot of the season as the Titans offense never got in sync this year. He's trying to build some momentum for a potential postseason birth and return to free agency next year.

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker did not have any receptions on two targets in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Decker finally came through in Week 6 and was set up to have a big week against the poor Browns run defense, but he couldn't have done less for our fantasy teams. He's not an essential hold heading into the bye with Corey Davis due back very soon.

Tennessee Titans WRs Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews are set to start in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks with rookie WR Corey Davis (hamstring) sidelined.

Footballguys view: Neither Decker or Matthews are likely to do much against the Seahawks on Sunday. It helps that they're at home in Week 3, but fantasy owners should just consider either one a WR3 or flex play.

  Titans | Eric Decker back at practice    Tue Aug 29, 04:40 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) was back at practice Tuesday, Aug. 29. As reported earlier, he has a chance to play in the Titans' final preseason game this week.

Footballguys view: Decker doesn't need to play in Week 4 of the preseason. He's a WR3/flex option for fantasy players. Decker has been banged up over the last year but if healthy the veteran wideout could play an important role for the Titans..especially when they get near pay dirt.

  Titans | Eric Decker could play in preseason game    Mon Aug 28, 07:23 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) has a chance to play in the final preseason game but a final decision has not been made, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Decker doesn't need to play in the preseason finale, so we're not expecting the veteran to suit up. Monitor his status before Week 1 just in case you wanted him in as a flex option against the Raiders.

  Titans | Eric Decker will not play in dress rehearsal    Fri Aug 25, 01:25 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) has been ruled out for the team's third preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: Rishard Matthews is the only healthy Top 3 receiver on the Titans, even though he is also going third among the three. Decker is still a solid choice at a reasonable 7th/8th round ADP, and all Titans receivers can make a case for being values at current ADP, along with quarterback Marcus Mariota.

  Titans | Eric Decker may play in next game    Sun Aug 20, 04:45 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) has a chance to play in the third preseason game, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: This is a minor injury by most indications, but seeing Decker play next week would go a long way towards easing any concerns about the season opener against Oakland. All three of the Titans wide receivers have potential to be values, but Rishard Matthews is the healthiest (and latest drafted) right now.

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during practice Wednesday, Aug. 16.

  Titans | Eric Decker meshing with Marcus Mariota    Sun Aug 6, 08:49 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker has already built a 'trust' with QB Marcus Mariota, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. 'Just in this week of practice, they've connected a lot of times,' Mularkey said. 'So yeah, there's a chemistry there.'

Footballguys view: Decker has been healthy after two offseason surgeries and he should be able to be at worst a high ceiling flex play in Tennessee's offense. He's a solid pick at ADP as probably your fourth wide receiver.

  Titans | Eric Decker lines up outside    Thu Aug 3, 11:12 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker lined up on the outside and in the slot with the first-team during practice Thursday, Aug. 3, after WR Corey Davis (hamstring) left with an injury.

Footballguys view: If Davis misses significant time, Decker could be a strong WR2. It appears that his two offseason surgeries have not slowed him down one bit. He's a value at his current ADP while Davis's condition is unknown.

  Titans | Eric Decker contract details    Tue Jun 20, 07:11 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Eric Decker's one-year deal is worth up to $5.35 million, according to a source. The deal comes with a $2.5 million signing bonus, a $1.35 million salary and up to $1.50 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: Decker could be a very interesting addition to this offense and might be a good fit as the No. 2 there. Two things will impact that. First is the health of Marcus Mariota, which looks good. Second will be how quickly rookie Corey Davis starts drawing coverage. When he's the focal point of a secondary, Decker can struggle. When he has a legit number one across from him, though, he can be very productive. Right now, Decker is trending with an overall ADP of 102 and is the 39th receiver off the board. We suspect that will get more expensive as summer goes by and the market adjusts to his new situation.

  Titans | Eric Decker joins Tennessee    Sun Jun 18, 08:59 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) has signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to a source. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Decker gives QB Marcus Mariota another quality target to throw to in 2017. The Titans have revamped their WR corps with the addition of Corey Davis (first round) and Decker this offseason. Decker was banged up last year (hip, shoulder) and only made it through three games. He should be full strength for the start of the regular season and should be considered a WR3 with upside for fantasy owners.

  Titans | Eric Decker visiting Tennessee    Wed Jun 14, 01:35 PM

Free-agent WR Eric Decker (Jets) is meeting with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, June 14.

Footballguys view: This is Decker's first (but not likely last) visit since the Jets released him. The Titans have revamped their WR corps this offseason with the additions of rookies Corey Davis (first round) and Taywan Taylor (third round) in the 2017 NFL draft. Adding Decker would give them more of a veteran presence at the position. Expect Decker to shop his services around before making a final decision.

  Jets | Eric Decker released    Mon Jun 12, 05:10 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker was released Monday, June 12, according to a source.

Footballguys view: With Jeremy Maclin picking the Ravens (the team perhaps interested in trading with the Jets), Decker's release was imminent. This move saves the Jets $7.25 million in cap space. Decker is coming back from an injury shortened 2016 and has been recovering from hip and shoulder surgeries. If healthy, Decker can still make plays at the pro level. Expect a team like the Bills or Eagles to show the most interest.

  Ravens | Baltimore may still pursue Eric Decker    Mon Jun 12, 03:56 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker could still be traded for or signed by the Baltimore Ravens even with the Ravens signing WR Jeremy Maclin.

Footballguys view: The Ravens need all the help they can get at the wide receiver position. Maclin gives them another veteran to go along with Mike Wallace, but that's about it for experienced wideouts. Adding Maclin and Decker may seem a bit outlandish, but never say never in this crazy league.
