The New York Jets are desperate for a win after starting their season 1-4, but they are not expected to have any luck in doing so as they face the Denver Broncos.
However, they received a relief in their offense as wide receiver Eric Decker will be active after being listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. This means Decker will get to face his former team for the first time since leaving in free agency.
Decker has battled this injury all season long, but the Jets are desperate to save their season. An upset win over the Broncos would be a great way to start, but they may be taking a risk with playing Decker.
Here is a tweet from ESPN fantasy football writer Matthew Berry confirming Decker and other players being active.
