Eric Decker explodes for 113 yards and a touchdown in first half vs. Raiders

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

One of the many receiving weapons for the Broncos piled-up the numbers in one half of play on Monday night versus the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Broncos receiver Eric Decker got off to a fast start versus the Raiders on Monday night, catching six passes for 113 yards and a touchdown by halftime.

Decker's touchdown catch was the culmination of another surgical drive led by Peyton Manning, who found Decker wide open in the back of the end zone. Routinely finding the open man has been the common theme of the season for the Broncos' quarterback, and Decker's elevated play since a shaky Week One has allowed him to be one of Manning's favorites.

Fantasy Spin: As expected, it has been a field day for the Broncos offense, which is just too much of a match for a patchwork Raiders defensive unit. With a commanding 27-7 lead through two quarters, it's possible the Broncos go into clock-killing mode sooner than later once the half resumes. That will cap Decker's upside going forward, but it's hard to imagine his owners would not already be satisfied with him putting up over 100 yards and a score. Going forward, Decker has cemented his status as a fantasy receiver that should often present WR2 upside.
