Decker had hip and shoulder surgeries after his 2016 season ended in October. He has been participating in the offseason program and has guaranteed that he will be "out there every day in training camp participating".

Summary

We've seen this story before. There's no true number one receiver, since Brandon Marshall left, which means Decker is likely to have to take over those duties. Last time that happened was in 2014 and while Decker had 962 yards on 74 receptions, that was in part due to getting force-fed the ball. Even then, he saw less targets, less yards and less touchdowns than at any other point in his career since his second season with Denver when he still wasn't quite a big part of the Broncos offense. Decker is an excellent second receiver, but doesn't have the ability to separate from defenders when he is the main focal point of their attention. If someone can step up and help him out, replace Marshall, then he could be more productive. There's no sure thing, though. On top of that, Decker is likely going to have some pretty poor quarterbacking. Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn't good in 2016, but the quarterbacks remaining aren't a step up. An aging Josh McCown, a mediocre Bryce Petty and a complete unknown in Christian Hackenberg - although given how he played at Penn State, it is easy to assume he will at least continue to be raw. That means Decker will also have to deal less-than-perfect passes on a routine basis. Decker did miss most of 2016 due to injury and is coming off surgery. He should be fine for camp and the surgery shouldn't hinder his abilities. (May 22)

Jets | Eric Decker going full speed (Tue May 23, 11:23 AM) - New York Jets WR Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) is participating in passing drills full speed Tuesday, May 23.

Our View: Decker is the best option the Jets have a wide receiver with Brandon Marshall (Giants) gone. This is good news about his health status, but with a bad QB situation we can only recommend Decker as a WR3 in fantasy leagues. His current ADP is WR37 (8.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.
