Broncos | Peyton Manning has connection with Wes Welker
Tue, 21 May 2013 09:36:38 -0700
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning already feels like he has some chemistry with WR Wes Welker. "There's certain guys you just feel like you have timing with right away," Manning said. "He's a guy that has a great feel for how to get open, and understands route concepts and, of course, he played in such a sophisticated offense there in New England, so he's a smart player." The Broncos used three-receiver sets 64 percent of the time last year, but expect that to increase dramatically as they look to create mismatches in the opposing defenses.
This is good news for the Broncos, but for those in point-per-reception leagues, don't expect Welker to add 100-plus catches again with Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker in the picture. Welker should still be very productive, but he may no longer be a WR1 in those formats.
