Fantasy Impact: Eric Decker Signs with Titans

Team Stake

Eric Decker Fantasy 2017

The Tennessee Titans have signed WR Eric Decker, formerly of the New York Jets, to a one-year contract.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pound veteran wide receiver visited the Titans on Wednesday, met with coach Mike Mularkey and took a physical. He was released this month by the Jets after three seasons with the team.Ā Decker, started his career in Denver, where he had three 1,000-yard seasons with twelve 100-yard games in his seven-year NFL career in a four year span. Decker has 33 touchdowns in the red zone since 2012, second in the NFL only to Brandon Marshall (35) in that span. He also ranks 18th in the NFL with 43 touchdown receptions and 4,535 yards receiving since 2012.

Twitter Thoughts:

Fantasy Impact

 

Eric Decker’s average draft position in PPR league formats dropped two full rounds since May. I’m expecting Decker’s stock value to pull out of this noise dive in classic Top Gun movie fashion as he ditches the Jets for a baby blue jersey in Tennessee. While the Titans have better receiving corps in comparison to the Jets, and one could argue that Decker may have seen more targets remaining with the Jets in 2017, there is not doubt that the quality of targets will improve with the upgrade at Quarterback.

Another interesting stat provided by Jacob Rickrode (Tweet), is that Eric Decker was a top 15 Wide Receiver in PPR three of the past 5 years. Dynasty owners who bought low over the last month are going to be thrilled by his landing spot. I’m expecting Decker’s ADP climbs as high as the middle of the 7th round by the start of NFL Pre-season.
