Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker caught five passes for 50 yards but did not find the end zone in the Week 6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker caught five passes for 50 yards but did not find the end zone in the Week 6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Decker was targeted seven times on the day in a game where quarterback Peyton Manning wasn't his usual spectacular self. Manning put up decent fantasy numbers and did throw two touchdown passes, but the Broncos offense was far from the juggernaut it was expected to be against a bad Jaguars defense. On the year, Decker has 34 receptions for 477 yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Decker has been targeted 51 times and gets plenty of looks from Manning. The Broncos offense had an off day against a Jaguars defense that isn't very good.  Manning still put up decent numbers as did his receivers so this game isn't a big concern. Teams sometimes fall victim to trap games and the Broncos appear to be a victim here. The Broncos will travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in Week 7.
