NFL | Wes Welker not popular in free agency

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 20:51:28 -0700

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) is generating very little buzz on the open market, according to a league source. The lack of interest flows in part from a trend toward young receivers making an immediate impact.

Broncos | Wes Welker intends to play in 2015

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 14:41:38 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent WR Wes Welker is not planning on retiring. Welker said he's preparing for next season and added that he never said he was considering retirement, contrary to a previous report.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Welker still plans on playing next season doesn't necessarily mean he'll play for the Broncos. He's coming off his worst season since 2006 when he played for the Miami Dolphins. Welker should be considered no more than a WR3 option in 2015 drafts, especially with his extensive concussion and injury history.

Broncos | Wes Welker considering retirement

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:43:10 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent WR Wes Welker is considering retirement after several years of head injuries and declining production, sources said Tuesday, Feb. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Welker posted 122 catches with 1,242 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons in Denver. He used to come close to that kind of production in a single season at the pinnacle of his career. If Welker does return, it is likely to be in another city since he is an unrestricted free agent. In the right situation, he could have WR3/4 value.

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 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.
