Patriots | Wes Welker unlikely to Pats

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 16:23:18 -0700

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) is unlikely to sign with the New England Patriots unless WRs Julian Edelman or Danny Amendola were injured.

Fantasy Tip: Welker can still latch on somewhere and be worth a WR5 flyer in PPR leagues, but his window of fantasy relevance is closing.

Patriots | Wes Welker open to Pats return

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:35:19 -0700

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) said he would be open to returning to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Welker's fantasy value is somewhat on life support, but in the right situation, he's still worth a WR5 flyer in PPR leagues.

NFL | Wes Welker cleared to play

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:33:44 -0700

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) has been cleared to continue his playing career by one of the top concussion doctors. Welker said he did well in all of the tests during his visit with the doctor. Welker is working out in Florida and waiting to sign with a team.

Fantasy Tip: Welker has seen his stats drop in each of the last two seasons and has also dealt with some concussions during that time. Welker could receive some interest later in the offseason but likely would not be more than a late-round pick in deeper leagues next season.

Dolphins | Wes Welker even less likely for MIA

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 17:58:10 -0700

Free agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) is considered even less likely to sign with the Miami Dolphins, after Miami reportedly signed WR Greg Jennings to a two-year deal Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Welker has still yet to find a new home and the Dolphins were considered one of the most plausible landing destinations. Welker left his visit with Miami April 8, without a deal, and the Dolphins clearly moved on. Welker may have to accept a training-camp invite.

Dolphins | Wes Welker leaves without deal

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 16:37:12 -0700

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, April 8, without a deal.

Fantasy Tip: Welker finished the 2014 season with just two touchdown receptions, his lowest total since his sophomore season in 2006 with the Miami Dolphins. Welker has also finished the last two seasons with fewer than 100 receptions, and fewer than 1,000 receiving yards. With concussions a major concern for the 33-year-old, it wouldn't be a shock to see him begin the season without a contract in place. Any fantasy value he'll possess this season will rely on wherever he ends up.

Dolphins | Wes Welker visiting Miami

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 06:37:23 -0700

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) is visiting with the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Welker defied odds with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as his quarterback, but can he thrive in an offense without them at this stage? The oft-injured receiver could still have WR4 value in a PPR format, but his concussion history is quite worrisome.

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.
