Broncos | Wes Welker good to go

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 07:01:57 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) had no setbacks in practice this week and will play Sunday, Sept. 11. However, there's no guarantee on number of snaps he'll receive in a crowded offense.

Fantasy Tip: Welker ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is a bargain buy on FantasyScore this week, but one has to wonder how much he'll produce as the fourth or fifth option in the offense.

Broncos | Wes Welker ready to play

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 11:37:17 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has practiced with the team all week and is ready to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He practiced in full all week, and he's listed as probable for Sunday, Sept. 21. "It's been great," head coach John Fox said of Welker's work this week. "He's a veteran guy that attacks preparation, and he's had a great week." Welker is expected to play, but he may not see a normal number of snaps as he would have if he had practiced more with the team before his suspension.

Fantasy Tip: You won't have to decide whether to spend on Welker at FantasyScore this week, since he's not eligible. However, he should be in all standard league rosters this weekend.

Broncos | Wes Welker's health a non-issue

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 10:32:59 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) practiced with the team Wednesday, Sept. 17, which was his first on-field work since Labor Day, and he said he was cleared medically "about a week or so ago." "I appreciate their concern, I do," Welker said. "But at the same time, I feel great. I feel sharp and ready to go." Head coach John Fox said that Welker's suspension, from a health perspective, may have been a "blessing in disguise" for Welker.

Fantasy Tip: Welker's health is great news. He probably won't be overworked in his first game back against the Seattle Seahawks, though, especially since the team has their bye in Week 4. He won't be eligible to play in your lineup at FantasyScore this weekend, either.

Broncos | Wes Welker not committing to Week 3

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:06:08 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker feels great physically and is ready to return to the team, but he stopped short of committing to playing in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. "That's a coach's decision," Welker said. " ... I'm preparing like I'm going to play." Welker was back on the practice field Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Welker has been physically cleared and is going through the game plan with the team this week, so we'd expect him to suit up against the Seahawks. You won't have to worry about Welker at FantasyScore this week, since he's not eligible, but plan to return him to your standard lineups if he's active.

Broncos | Wes Welker to return to slot

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:31:24 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will return to the slot receiver position in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, moving WR Emmanuel Sanders back outside opposite WR Demaryius Thomas. WR Andre Caldwell will return to the No. 4 receiver role.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Welker won't be available at FantasyScore this week, but he should be returned immediately to all standard lineups against the Seahawks.

Broncos | Wes Welker reinstated

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 07:46:07 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker has been reinstated Wednesday, Sept. 17, after a new drug testing agreement was reached.

Fantasy Tip: As mentioned previously, Welker is not guaranteed to play in Week 3. He is priced at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore against the Seattle Seahawks. He's a cheap gamble to take this week, but it's a very poor matchup.

NFL | Drug testing agreement reached

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 06:32:03 -0700

The NFL and NFLPA have reached an agreement to a new drug testing policy. An announcement is expected soon.

Fantasy Tip: Wes Welker may be eligible to play in Week 3. He is priced at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore, but they are playing the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. He's a cheap gamble to take, but temper expectations. Josh Gordon could be eligible to return later this season as well.

Broncos | Wes Welker to be reinstated

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 14:03:12 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will officially be reinstated following the agreement of a new drug policy.

Fantasy Tip: Welker should be good to go in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He's a low-end WR2 option, but there's always the injury/concussion risk.

Broncos | Wes Welker unlikely in Week 2

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 19:26:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker is unlikely to play in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs, as he has not gone through a full practice since Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners will want to avoid Welker in the upcoming week, even if he is able to suit up and play. Let him knock the rust off before relying upon him for one of your lineup spots.
