Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker (ankle, shoulder) is listed as probable for the team's Week 5 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Through the first four weeks of this season, Decker has 24 catches for 340 yards and one touchdown.
Fantasy impact: There's no doubt that owning any Broncos wide receiver from a fantasy perspective is a smart play. Quarterback Peyton Manning is having possibly the best season of his career even though he's in his late 30s now. Even with Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas alongside him, Decker is still second on the team in receiving yards.
Manning definitely has the reputation of throwing to whoever is running the best routes in the receiving corps, and the Broncos receivers have gotten to know that over the last year and a bit. Decker's spot on the totem pole behind Thomas and Welker shouldn't be a surprise to fantasy owners and because he's on such a good team, he is capable of producing like many of the game's top receivers.
Going into Week 5, the Cowboys are only in the middle of the pack when it comes to fantasy pass defense and giving up points to receivers, so given that the Broncos are the hottest team in football right now, Decker is an obvious start, even in deep leagues.
