Eric Decker injury update: Toe injury a non-issue for fantasy owners

Dilip Vishwanat

Eric Decker is ready to carve up the Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos WR Eric Decker is listed as probable to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday. He missed Wednesday's practice, then returned in full capacity on Thursday and Friday. He'll be in the lineup.

The Broncos decided to sit a lot of guys out of practice on Wednesday, headlined by Peyton Manning sitting out of his first practice all year. Decker has been on the injury report before, but he hasn't missed any time.

Decker is having a monster season with Peyton at the helm. Decker ranks second in the league in receiving yards with 627 and is eighth with 42 receptions.

Fantasy impact: It could be a really big day for Decker. The Redskins have a propensity to give up a lot of deep balls with their slow safeties and undisciplined corners. Decker's owners should have their eyes on a big day and his toe injury should not factor into the decision in plugging him him your lineup. Julius Thomas, Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker should also have nice outings vs. Washington.
