Eric Decker injury: Does limited practice change fantasy value in Week 10?

Doug Pensinger

As the Denver offense heats up, so should Eric Decker. We break down the fantasy implications.

As John Fox prepares to face his former team, he's going to want to have all of his weapons healthy. Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker (thigh) was limited in practice on Wednesday, while Demaryius Thomas (knee) was a full-go. Denver is the number four passing offense in the NFL, with Decker at 583 yards receiving and Thomas at 756.

Carolina is 13th in the league against the pass.

Fantasy Take: Look for Decker to have a huge week, if healthy. The Panthers overall numbers against the pass are good, but Football Outsiders ranks them as 28th in the NFL against number two wide receivers. That could slide Decker ahead of Thomas for Week 10, though both could have big days.

It would be good to see Decker get in a full practice this week.
