2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Not known for being a particularly excellent red zone threat, Wes Welker lit the fantasy world on fire in 2013 when he started the season with nine touchdown receptions in his first eight games. Welker's incredible first half had many owners scrambling to acquire the former Patriot, but that kind of pace was simply unsustainable. Welker would go on to catch just one more touchdown in the second half of the regular season, while never eclipsing the 10 reception or 100 yard mark in any single game. Those numbers were skewed by the fact that he missed the final three weeks of the regular season, but it's still worth noting the incredible drop-off in production. Welker did return for the playoffs where he caught a total of 18 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown over three games, but that isn't enough for us to be highly optimistic about his fantasy outlook for 2014. Given the loss of Eric Decker, Welker should see more targets come his way in 2014 than he did in 2013, but there's a serious question of durability and simple degradation of physical skill at this point. Welker is 33 years old and while there's still gas in the tank, it would not be surprising to see him slowly start to fade away over the next couple of seasons. Still, Welker remains a top-20 receiver in standard scoring formats and a top-15 receiver in PPR formats. Drafting him could pay huge dividends, but make sure to have a reliable option on your bench should things start off looking like they did near the end of 2013.

Comment: Welker has suffered his third concussion in ten months. He may return Week 1 but Emmanuel Sanders is the safer draft pick.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Wes Welker cleared to travel
Not cleared for contact
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 27, 4:00 pm

Denver Broncos
ARLINGTON, Texas Wes Welker was cleared to fly with the Broncos for their final preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys. Welker has not yet been medically cleared from his concussion to engage in contact, so he won't play in the game Thursday night at AT&T Stadium. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: Wes Welker (concussion) is making progress but it is too soon to know if he will be available for the team's opening game. He has reached the exercise stage of recovery but he must be cleared for contact by late next week to have a chance at playing week one. Additionally, the team has insisted that Welker will return when he is fully healthy and may elect to be cautious with the veteran receiver. Not knowing if Welker will play or how many snaps he would see should have his owners seeking out a backup plan for the start of the fantasy season.


Injury Wes Welker takes shot to the head
Being evaluated for possible concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 23, 10:15 pm

Denver Broncos
Wes Welker, 33, left in the second quarter after taking a hit to the head from Houston Texans cornerback D.J. Swearinger and was under evaluation for a concussion. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: Swearinger received a penalty on the play then was confronted by an angry Peyton Manning after the next play... a touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders. Welker suffered two concussions last season and any confirmed concussion diagnosis would likely lead to time missed.
