Eric Decker not in practice Wednesday for fantasy owners

The New York Jets wide receiver stretched with the team before sitting out practice. We break down the fantasy impact.

New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker did not participate in practice on Wednesday, though he did come out for the team’s stretch session, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini. Decker continues to recover from a partially torn rotator cuff. The seven-year veteran receiver first appeared on the injury report with a sore shoulder in Week 2. He further aggravated his shoulder in the Jets’ Week 3 loss to Kansas City.

Decker told ESPN Radio in New York Tuesday that he feels "better this week than last week," but he has discomfort and is unsure if he will play Sunday, reports Cimini. He added that he was having trouble sleeping because of the injury. Decker is questionable for the Jets’ Sunday game against Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact: Owners should not be too excited that Decker came out for stretches Wednesday. By the looks of it, the Jets’ wideout could be closer to IR than playing at this point. It is highly unlikely Decker will suit up for Week 5.

Backup Quincy Enunwa took over the WR2 duties in Decker’s absence Sunday. Enunwa caught six passes on seven targets for 60 yards against Seattle. Owners should keep an eye on Enunwa as a good WR2 option this week.
