Broncos | Wes Welker's targets fall off

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 18:19:22 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker was targeted 64 times in 14 games this season after being targeted 110 times in 13 games the previous season.

Fantasy Tip: Welker was lost among all the weapons in Denver's passing attack this year, and at 33 years old, his days as a viable fantasy option could be behind him.

Broncos | Wes Welker figuring out future

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 18:05:01 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker said Monday, Jan. 12, that he was unsure if he wanted to return to the team when he becomes a free agent this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Welker saw his role decrease dramatically this season with the arrival of Emmanuel Sanders, and Welker's fantasy value going forward will depend on where he ends up signing.

Broncos | Wes Welker taking day off

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 14:19:20 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker is taking the day off practice Tuesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Welker had just two catches for 42 yards in Week 17, and he remains sparsely used in this offense. He should be considered nothing more than a weak flex play in the Divisional Round of the playoffs next week.

Broncos | Probable status for Wes Welker

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 13:13:56 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Welker's injury isn't much of a concern at all. More of a concern for his fantasy prospects are the impending return of Julius Thomas (ankle) to the field. Thomas' presence will take what few targets Welker has away. He's a very weak flex play at FantasyScore for $4,200.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker practice

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 14:25:11 -0800

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and Wes Welker (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas' injury is more serious than Welker's, but both should play in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers. Thomas ($7,900) remains a perfectly acceptable play at FantasyScore; he had eight catches for over 100 yards in the first matchup with SD this year. Welker ($4,200) is a shaky flex play, but he could see more targets again if Julius Thomas (ankle) is limited or doesn't play at all.

Broncos | Wes Welker not practicing

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 13:29:47 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Welker ($4,200) had one of his better games of the season in Week 14, catching six passes (six targets) for a season-high 82 yards. His increased involvement could continue if Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and Julius Thomas (ankle) remain limited, but Welker is still a pretty risky FantasyScore flex option.

Broncos | Wes Welker will play

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:04:28 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (non-injury) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 5, and is probable for Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Welker ($4,000) should probably be avoided at FantasyScore against the Bills. The veteran wide receiver is only good for a few short-yardage passing plays a game these days.

Broncos | Wes Welker back at practice

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:58:01 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (non-injury) returned to a full practice Thursday, Dec. 4, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Welker ($4,000) will play against the Buffalo Bills, but he remains a weak flex play at FantasyScore because of his limited involvement in the team's passing attack.

Broncos | Wes Welker resting

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 15:05:56 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (non-injury) took the day off practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Welker isn't dealing with an injury, so that's good news for his owners. However, he just doesn't see enough targets to be a viable weekly lineup option. Consider Welker a weak play at FantasyScore this weekend against the Buffalo Bills for $4,000.

Broncos | Wes Welker limited Wednesday

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 11:20:01 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (undisclosed) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3. Welker played 57 of the team's 83 offensive snaps in Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Welker ($4,000) just doesn't see enough targets in this offense to make him a worthy play for FantasyScore lineups, especially if Julius Thomas (ankle) returns this weekend against the Buffalo Bills.
