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 Trio of Broncos return to practice
D. Thomas, Anderson and Welker all battling ankle injuries

For Broncos, Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and C.J. Anderson back in practice, working with offense. (Jeff Legwold on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thomas' lack of involvement last week was curious and Anderson made the comment after the Broncos' win over the Bills that his ankle was bothering him, perhaps suggesting that Thomas' ankle was in worse shape than Anderson's. Ronnie Hillman also returned to practice on Thursday, although his Week 15 availability will probably limited at best. Anderson's owners should be able to breathe easy for this week at least, although it entirely possible that he has done enough in the coaches' minds to remain the featured back.


Injury Several notable Denver players miss practice
Julius Thomas limited
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 10, 5:20 pm

Denver Broncos
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Head Coach John Fox had to take a deep breath after his 47-second recitation of an injury report that included 16 names, eight of whom did not practice Wednesday, with six others working on a limited basis. Headlining the eight players who did not practice were running back C.J. Anderson and wide receivers Wes Welker -- who missed last Wednesday's work -- and Demaryius Thomas, who played Sunday after suffering an ankle bruise when he was stepped on during practice Dec. 3. Joining Anderson, Welker and Thomas in missing practice were running back Montee Ball (groin), and tight end Jacob Tamme (ribs). Limited participants: running backs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Juwan Thompson (knee), and tight end Julius Thomas (ankle). Thomas said this has been "a much better week for me" than recent weeks, in which he also worked on a limited basis but did not play in the game. (DenverBroncos.com)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners of Denver's players will need to pay attention to the practice reports over the next couple of days. Some players, like Demaryius Thomas, would have suited up if needed but needed an extra day of rest. As the week progress, the injury picture in Denver should start to take form. Additionally, the running game could become muddled very quickly depending on who is healthy enough to play this weekend.


Injury Sanders, Thomas sit Thursday at Broncos practice
Broncos without two key receivers

Emmanuel Sanders and Julius Thomas were on the sideline at practice Thursday, just as they were on Wednesday, due to injuries suffered against the Rams last weekend. (ProFootball Talk)

FFToday's Take: Both players remain very questionable to play. While there's still a chance both could practice Friday and play on Sunday, owners should have backup plans in place. Jacob Tamme, Wes Welker and Andre Caldwell would see increased value if both sit.
