Eric Decker probable for fantasy owners on Thursday night

Eric Decker's hamstring injury is behind him and he's listed as probable for Thursday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker is listed as probable for Thursday night's game against the New England Patriots. Decker was limited in practice on Monday and Tuesday but should be close to 100 percent on Thursday.

Decker has been dealing with a hamstring injury that kept him out of Week 5. He was listed as questionable for last week's game with the Denver Broncos, but played nearly the entire game, finishing with six catches for 54 yards and a touchdown. Decker has a 20-258-3 line through fives games this season.

Fantasy impact: Decker is one of the few reliable fantasy options in the Jets' offense, but his upside is capped in Week 7 with Darrelle Revis expected to shadow him. Sammy Watkins was the latest victim of Revis Island, being held to two catches for 27 yards in Week 6. Decker might not be as limited as the rookie receiver, but the matchup is still something to consider. He's a WR3 at best with Geno Smith continuing to struggle at quarterback.
