Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker caught five passes for 87 yards and his second touchdown of the season in a 51-48 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Decker was targeted eight times by quarterback Peyton Manning in the game.
Fantasy impact: In one of the highest-scoring games in recent memory, Decker got his share of looks and provided steady numbers for his fantasy owners. The one blemish on Decker's stats in the game was a lost fumble.
The Broncos passing game right now looks unbeatable and owning any of Denver's receivers is a good call these days. Decker hasn't scored as many touchdowns as his fantasy owners would like this season though, and it is safe to say that Wes Welker and Julius Thomas are two big reasons for that.
Going into Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, fantasy owners should expect big numbers from any players wearing a blue and orange jersey. The biggest question mark in the game is not whether the Broncos will manage to put up big points, but rather which receivers will end up the beneficiaries of all the production. Since nobody can predict that of course, fantasy owners have no reason not to keep Decker in their lineup.
