Eric Decker injury update: Fantasy owners expecting a bounce-back game in Week 2

Dustin Bradford

Eric Decker is a little banged up and is coming off a rough Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker (shoulder) is listed as probable in Sunday's road game against the Giants. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, then was a full participant on Thursday and Friday. The wideout will be playing.

It was a disaster for Decker in Week 1. He had a couple bad drops and hooked up with Peyton Manning on just two of his seven targets for 32 yards. Last year, he caught a whopping 13 TDs and totaled 1,064 receiving yards.

Fantasy impact: Peyton Manning isn't the type of guy that will have his teammates just have a bad game and let them work it out on their own. There's a good chance that the two got back on the same page in practice and that may suggest that Decker goes off. The Giants have a banged up secondary and they may try and focus on Demaryius Thomas after his big Week 1. Decker is a strong WR2 play and it wouldn't surprise us to see him explode.
