As the season winds down, Eric Decker continues to put up huge numbers, and that's very good news for fantasy owners as fantasy football playoffs begin.
What kind of value would you put on Eric Decker?
In the game against the Tennessee Titans, Decker put up huge numbers. He had eight receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown, giving him 17 fantasy points in ESPN's standard scoring leagues.
This is the second straight huge game for Decker, although not quite as impressive as the previous one. Last week against the Kansas City Chiefs, Decker had eight receptions for 174 yards and four touchdowns, giving him 41 fantasy points.
Heading into Sunday, Decker had 63 receptions for 971 yards and seven touchdowns.
With three remaining games against weaker opponents in the San Diego Chargers, the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders, Decker could keep putting up big numbers as fantasy playoffs continue, especially with Peyton Manning throwing him the ball. Some may be worried that the Broncos will sit Decker once they lock up home-field advantage, but even if that happens, Decker is the No. 3 receiver, and he will still likely have to play.
With how well he's played, Decker is an easy WR2 in almost all leagues and perhaps even a WR1 in deeper ones. Regardless, all fantasy owners should be starting him for the rest of the season, because he's capable of putting up big games like this one consistently.
