Broncos | Wes Welker probable for Week 10

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:05:53 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (back) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 7, and is probable for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Welker ($5,000; 10.0% of cap) looks healthy enough to return against the Raiders. The matchup is great, but Welker isn't receiving enough targets in this offense to warrant much more than a weak flex selection at FantasyScore.

Broncos | Full practice for Wes Welker

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 15:26:44 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (back) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Welker should play against the Oakland Raiders in Week 10. However, for a price of $4,500 at FantasyScore, you'll likely find more consistent options for your lineups. Welker's targets and catches are way down with more dynamic weapons at Peyton Manning's disposal.

Broncos | Full practice for Wes Welker

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 14:57:14 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (back) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Welker's injury doesn't look to be very serious, so he should have a good shot at returning in Week 10 to face the Oakland Raiders. The matchup is nice, but Welker's involvement in the passing game has been few and far between this year. Consider him a weaker flex option for your FantasyScore lineups.

Broncos | Wes Welker practicing

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 10:55:04 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (back) is participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Welker has not posted big numbers in any game this season since the team has several receivers they use in the passing game. Owners would have to spend $4,500 on Welker at FantasyScore, but they may want to use their money on a more consistent option.

Broncos | Wes Welker day-to-day

Tue, 04 Nov 2014 09:40:04 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (back) is being listed as "day-to-day" by head coach John Fox.

Fantasy Tip: Welker's injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but he could be a question mark for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders. The matchup is a nice one, but Welker is a risk at FantasyScore if he's not 100 percent.

Broncos | Wes Welker has back bruise

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 13:04:22 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (back) suffered a back bruise in Sunday's contest against the New England Patriots. The timetable for his return was undisclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Welker has been the most disappointing starting receiver on the team by far this year and continues to struggle with staying healthy. If he is able to go against the Oakland Raiders, it still might be best to pass on him unless he's dirt cheap on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Wes Welker an afterthought in Week 8

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 10:21:18 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker had just two catches for five yards on two targets in Week 8, and he's averaging just 36 yards per game this year, which is less than half his average (77) in the last seven seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Welker's usage in the offense is at an all-time low. With other more explosive and athletic weapons in the aerial game at Peyton Manning's disposal, Welker is mainly used for key third-down conversions. He's a weak flex play in deeper leagues moving forward.

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.
