Eric Decker injury update: Fantasy value is fine for Sunday


Eric Decker is basically on the injury report for no reason. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. He didn't miss any practice with a foot injury and is close to 100 percent.

He's been on the injury report for a while with this toe injury, but it hasn't affected him much on the field. He was a little quiet before the Broncos had a bye week and had just four catches for 42 yards against the Washington Redskins. However, he went off against the Colts on Oct. 20 with eight catches, 150 yards and one score.

Decker is up to 46 catches, 669 yards and three scores on the season. The Broncos have such a powerful offense, that they have four receivers able to sustain value: Decker, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Wes Welker.

Fantasy impact: There's really no way any owner can bench Decker. The Chargers gave up some serious points to the Redskins last week and the Broncos should be able to do the same. What's more, the Chargers should be able to score a bit to keep it close. He's a must-start.
