Both Marshall and Decker are on pace for huge years. Marshall is now at 83 catches, 1,062 yards, and 10 touchdowns. This puts him on pace for 111 catches, 1,416 yards, and 13 touchdowns. The Jets got all of this for a fifth round pick. The 31 year old, 6'4 receiver, has been clutch and has dominated some of the best corners in the game. Eric Decker isn't putting up Marshall numbers, but has been the perfect compliment. The 28 year old has 59 catches, 801 yards, and 8 touchdowns. That puts him on pace for 79 catches, 1,068 yards, and 11 touchdowns. This duo has become so hard to contain, due to Marshall's size and speed combo and Decker's ability to line up on the inside and on the outside. The play of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has only helped these receivers. After a shaky start, Fitzpatrick has thrown 6 touchdowns and no interceptions in the past two games. He nows has 22 for the season, and has developed a close relationship with both targets.
Which duos would people make an argument for? I think some would say Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant, some would say Emmanuel Saunders and Demaryius Thomas, and Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Marshall and Decker have 142 catches combined and 18 touchdowns, the Denver duo has 133 catches and 7 touchdowns, the Lions duo has 137 catches and 9 touchdowns, and the Pittsburgh duo has 124 catches and 13 touchdowns (though Bryant was suspended for 4 games). The Pittsburgh duo of Brown and Bryant is the stiffest competition, but give me Decker and Marshall any day of the week. Decker and Marshall make you confident that any time the Jets have the ball they could score. This duo is going to be a joy to watch for the next few years.
