Top 200 PPR – 2012 Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet
Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE
Eric Decker put himself on the fantasy map last year despite going through a quarterback switch, and the team transitioning to a heavy run first offense. This year promises to be a better situation for Decker as Peyton Manning has come to town.
Perhaps it would be unwise for us to expect Manning to throw the football over 35 times each week, but when he does, it’s likely Decker will be his top possession receiver. Decker doesn’t have the consistent playmaking ability of Demaryius Thomas but PPR fantasy owners should enjoy his added upside from his reception total.
Playing mostly from the slot last year, the Broncos are working on moving Decker around, lining up more on the outside to keep him on the field. Like Victor Cruz in New York, we should expect Decker to move back to the slot when the Broncos incorporate three and four receiver sets.
While Thomas should be the first Broncos receiver off the board, Decker makes for a great WR3 selection and is likely to perform at a WR2 level in PPR leagues.
