Summary

Going from having Peyton Manning throwing to you, to having Geno Smith or Michael Vick tossing passes your way will usually hurt your bottom line. So we're not expecting a third straight 1,000 yard plus, 80 plus catch season from Decker. That doesn't mean he'll fall off the radar for fantasy owners, just that expectations should be realigned. Decker is a physical receiver who can move the chains as well as stretch the field. Decker will also see much more attention from the defense as he lacks a Demaryius Thomas to pull them. All this will limit him to WR 2 or high end WR3 status--with a chance that, if the quarterback situation gets messier, that he could fall below that. (May 22)
