Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 19 Sep 2014 11:37:17 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has practiced with the team all week and is ready to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He practiced in full all week, and he's listed as probable for Sunday, Sept. 21. "It's been great," head coach John Fox said of Welker's work this week. "He's a veteran guy that attacks preparation, and he's had a great week." Welker is expected to play, but he may not see a normal number of snaps as he would have if he had practiced more with the team before his suspension.
Fantasy Tip: You won't have to decide whether to spend on Welker at FantasyScore this week, since he's not eligible. However, he should be in all standard league rosters this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: McManus should play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. You could do worse at place kicker than McManus at FantasyScore.

Denver Broncos LB Lerentee McCray (knee) and LB Danny Trevathan (knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) practiced with the team Wednesday, Sept. 17, which was his first on-field work since Labor Day, and he said he was cleared medically "about a week or so ago." "I appreciate their concern, I do," Welker said. "But at the same time, I feel great. I feel sharp and ready to go." Head coach John Fox said that Welker's suspension, from a health perspective, may have been a "blessing in disguise" for Welker.
Fantasy Tip: Welker's health is great news. He probably won't be overworked in his first game back against the Seattle Seahawks, though, especially since the team has their bye in Week 4. He won't be eligible to play in your lineup at FantasyScore this weekend, either.

Fantasy Tip: McManus should be expected to play against the Seattle Seahawks. If you're not afraid to spend on a kicker at FantasyScore, McManus ($3,600; 7.2% of cap) could be a fine play.

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker feels great physically and is ready to return to the team, but he stopped short of committing to playing in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. "That's a coach's decision," Welker said. " ... I'm preparing like I'm going to play." Welker was back on the practice field Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Tip: Welker has been physically cleared and is going through the game plan with the team this week, so we'd expect him to suit up against the Seahawks. You won't have to worry about Welker at FantasyScore this week, since he's not eligible, but plan to return him to your standard lineups if he's active.

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will return to the slot receiver position in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, moving WR Emmanuel Sanders back outside opposite WR Demaryius Thomas. WR Andre Caldwell will return to the No. 4 receiver role.
Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Welker won't be available at FantasyScore this week, but he should be returned immediately to all standard lineups against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: As mentioned previously, Welker is not guaranteed to play in Week 3. He is priced at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore against the Seattle Seahawks. He's a cheap gamble to take this week, but it's a very poor matchup.

Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. played 81 of 86 defensive snaps in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs after playing in only 39 snaps in Week 1. It's a sign that he's making good progress after knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Welker should be good to go in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He's a low-end WR2 option, but there's always the injury/concussion risk.
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 09:39:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sanders has been a fine fantasy option in the first two weeks despite not reaching the end zone. His usage in the offense could take a hit, though, if Wes Welker returns in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
