Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 14 vs BUF (6 / 6 / 82 / 0 rec)

After being largely ignored on the season, Welker had a throwback game against the Buffalo Bills, hauling in all six of his targets for 82 yards. After spending all season running shallow routes underneath zone coverage, Denver sent Welker deep twice, resulting in a pair of 20+ yard receptions that each set Denver up deep in Buffalo territory on eventual touchdown drives. Welker also drew an illegal contact penalty and handled punt returns in place of the recently-cut Isaiah Burse. The lone blemish on his resume against Buffalo came on an offensive pass interference penalty where Welker began blocking a hair too early on a Demaryius Thomas screen.


Latest News

Broncos | Probable status for Wes Welker (Fri Dec 12, 04:13 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers.

Our View: Welker had been coming on lately, but Julius Thomas's full return will make him irrelevant again.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker practice (Thu Dec 11, 05:25 PM) - Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and Wes Welker (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Our View: Welker is useless for fantasy purposes, maybe a WR8 which is no help at all. Demaryius Thomas on the other hand, should be a solid WR1 start as nobody in the Chargers secondary can contain him..

Broncos | Wes Welker not practicing (Wed Dec 10, 04:29 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Our View: The Broncos practiced without pads or helmets today. This is just rest. Welker has been coming on a bit in recent weeks. He's worth considering as a WR3/flex play in Week 15 against the Chargers.

Broncos | Wes Welker will play (Fri Dec 5, 05:04 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (non-injury) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 5, and is probable for Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills.

Broncos | Wes Welker back at practice (Thu Dec 4, 05:58 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (non-injury) returned to a full practice Thursday, Dec. 4, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Our View: Welker has been relatively useless in fantasy this year and will remain so this weekend in a tough matchup unless both Thomas' or Emmanuel Sanders is hurt. That's not happening so, Welker should be on your bench.
