Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker caught four passes for 42 yards in the Week 8 win over the Washington Redskins. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker caught four passes for 42 yards in Denver's Week 8 win over the Washington Redskins. He was targeted seven times in the game. Decker is battling a toe injury but it doesn't appear to be hampering his play. He is tied with Wes Welker in the number of targets at 71 but simply isn't consistently putting up good numbers. He is now second among Broncos receivers in yardage with 669 but third in touchdowns with three. After a big game against the Indianapolis Colts, he crashed back down to earth with merely decent production.

Fantasy impact: Decker is still a must-start but fantasy owners have to be growing concerned about the inconsistent production. With Wes Welker getting most of the red-zone looks and making the most of his opportunities it remains to be seen whether Decker can get back into the mix in the red zone. Manning is also targeting Knowshon Moreno there as well. The Broncos have a Week 9 bye and then return to action in Week 10 to face the San Diego Chargers.
