Fantasy Football Outlook: Who will benefit the most from Peyton Manning, Eric Decker or Demaryius Thomas? How about both, as I could easily see these receivers holding WR2 value as the season moves along.

Thomas will be the big-play threat, but Decker is the possession receiver and will be moved around playing on the outside and his traditional slot position. While Thomas will have some huge stats lines, I expect Decker to be the more consistent receiver of the two and he’s likely to hold more value in PPR leagues.

Decker’s chances of a Pro Bowl season (whatever that means anymore) were increased this spring as Thomas was nursing another injury, and Decker was getting valuable reps with Manning. When you hear Manning call the third-year pro the, “veteran of the receiving core,” you know he’s viewed in high regard.

Expect Decker to be one of the league leaders in third-down receptions and yards, and he will be the security blanket receiver for Manning.

Sliding down to the 28th receiver off the board in recent ADP trends, if you can snag Decker as a WR3 consider that great value.
