Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker catches a pass against Khareem Jackson of the Houston Texans - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker caught ten passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 16 win over the Houston Texans. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker caught ten passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 16 win over the Houston Texans. Decker got the lions share of the targets at a whopping 17. He picked up the slack left by Wes Welker's absence due to a concussion which is a trend that could continue since Welker may be unavailable until the playoffs. On the year, Decker has caught 83 passes for 1261 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Decker is having a fantastic season like most of Manning's favorite targets and should continue to be a must play with Welker out with a concussion. Decker put up great stats against a Texans defense giving up the fourth least fantasy points to wide receivers. The Denver Broncos will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 17. The Raiders have given up the ninth most fantasy points to wide receivers.
