Eric Decker, WR, Denver Broncos
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Eric Decker had a suspected breakout campaign last year, hauling in 85 balls for 1064 yards and 13 touchdowns. Little did I know he was going to be the second option in ppr formats on his own team. Despite teammate Demaryius Thomas being the top breakout star on the team, Decker did a very nice job. He didn’t have as many receptions as Thomas, but he was nearly just as effective and perhaps more surprising was that Decker tied for 7th for points scored among wide receivers.

I’ve finally come to terms with how quickly the season ended for the Denver Broncos, although it ended in a rather unexpected way. The team had finally started to gel behind quarterback Peyton Manning during the second half of their week six-game in San Diego where the Chargers were dominating on both sides of the ball. The Broncos came out in the second half as a team possessed...

Elvis Dumervil is one half, not the better half, mind you, of ‘Doom and Gloom’, the Denver Broncos made up of Dumervil and All Pro Von Miller.

But once all of that buzz dies down, the draft will be right around the corner. The Broncos currently have...
