Eric Decker's two primetime touchdowns please fantasy owners

Justin Edmonds

Denver Broncos wide receiver hauls in two touchdowns on primetime. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker had a strong game on Sunday Night Football versus the New Orleans Saints. In Week 8, the Broncos No. 2 wide out had 4 receptions for 43 yards and two touchdowns. Decker's scores helped the Broncos run away with this game.

In the Broncos' new-look offense, Decker has played an important role. His skill set as a receiver is a perfect systematic fit, and new QB Peyton Manning appears extremely comfortable with him already.

Fantasy Analysis: Decker has very real value in all fantasy formats. He is one of those players that can show up in a lot of different ways. He can collect a lot of balls on the day, which is a great asset for PPR leagues. He is also capable of leading the team in receiving yards, and like we saw on Sunday, scoring more than once in a single outing.

In this new Broncos offense, Decker finds himself as a must-start in fantasy leagues. Continue to keep him in your starting lineup, as he is a solid contributor.
