From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 26): Decker had a prodigious streak of 18 games with either 80 yards or a score come to an end against the Chiefs. He has another tough matchup against Seattle this week and we have to be at least a little worried about Ryan Fitzpatrick after his six picks, although chances are Decker and the rest of the Jets passing game will be fine in Week 5 against Pittsburgh.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs KC (6 / 1 / 31 / 0 rec)

Eric Decker only made one catch and that catch didn't occur until the 4th quarter. Decker ran a deep post route and hauled in the strike to complete a 31-yard gain. Fitzpatrick struggled for nearly the entire game and not working Decker into the flow of the game may be a culprit of the game's outcome. Decker did receive one end zone target, but a great play by Eric Berry negated the scoring opportunity.

2016 Week 2 vs BUF (8 / 6 / 126 / 1 rec)

Dating back to last season, Eric Decker has shown remarkable consistency. Not only has Decker served as Fitzpatrick's trusted option on third downs, but he's registered at least 85 receiving yards or a touchdown in 17 straight games. Decker extended that streak by not only scoring a 5-yard touchdown, but by also leading the team with 126 yards. Early in the second quarter, Decker lined up in the slot, beat Ronald Darby's press coverage at the line of scrimmage, ran a quick slant and hauled in a 5-yard touchdown pass. Decker's physicality at the line of scrimmage enabled him to negate Darby's tight coverage and position himself for an easy touchdown conversion. In the second half, Decker embarrassed Darby on a deep post to complete a 36-yard leaping grab. Decker displayed his impressive body control and elite concentration to come down with the catch. While the final stat line is impressive, Decker had an opportunity for an even bigger game, but a holding penalty by Ryan Clady negated a 40-yard strike downfield. Decker was flagged for taunting after the play, but remained poised for the remainder of the game. Credit Chan Gailey for moving all three of receivers around the formation and positioning Decker in the slot to win one-to-one match-ups that fans are used to watching.

2016 Week 1 vs CIN (7 / 2 / 37 / 1 rec)

Eric Decker only caught two passes on seven targets, but both of those catches had a major impact on the game. In second quarter, Fitzpatrick hit Decker with a back shoulder throw for a 15-yard touchdown. Decker has a made career out of using his big body to position himself to box out smaller corners. On the 15-yard touchdown strike, Decker boxed out Josh Shaw in the end zone to come down with the catch. In the fourth quarter, on a 3rd-and-5 play, Fitzpatrick found Decker deep down the seam for a 22-yard gain. This third down conversion set-up Nick Folk for a go-ahead field goal that put New York ahead, 22-20. After a Cincinnati field goal, Decker was targeted on Fitzpatrick's game-ending interception, but an errant throw and great play by Shaw left Decker helpless on the play.
