2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
A year and a half removed from tearing his ACL, Welker returned to his dominant form in 2011 posting career highs in yards with 1,573 and touchdowns with nine while catching 122 passes, one short of matching his career-high. After suffering a torn ACL in Week 17 of the 2009 season, Welkerís production dropped in 2010 and there was some concern that injuries and age (he turned 30 prior to the start of last season) were beginning to catch up to him. He put those concerns to rest but apparently not enough to entice the Patriots to sign him to a lucrative long-term contract extension as he was slapped with the franchise tag for the upcoming season. That might be a good thing for his fantasy prospects as he will be forced to put together another strong year to get the contract he is looking for. While the Patriots have improved their depth chart at wide receiver with the additions of Brandon Lloyd and Jabar Gaffney, Welkerís role as the teamís main threat in the passing game will remain unchanged. He remains a top-ten fantasy wide receiver.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Wes Welker cleared to travel     -- Wed Aug 27 4:00 pm --

Not cleared for contact
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Wes Welker was cleared to fly with the Broncos for their final preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys. Welker has not yet been medically cleared from his concussion to engage in contact, so he won't play in the game Thursday night at AT&T Stadium. (Denver Post)

FF Today's Take: Wes Welker (concussion) is making progress but it is too soon to know if he will be available for the team's opening game. He has reached the exercise stage of recovery but he must be cleared for contact by late next week to have a chance at playing week one. Additionally, the team has insisted that Welker will return when he is fully healthy and may elect to be cautious with the veteran receiver. Not knowing if Welker will play or how many snaps he would see should have his owners seeking out a backup plan for the start of the fantasy season.
Injury Wes Welker takes shot to the head     -- Sat Aug 23 10:15 pm --

Being evaluated for possible concussion
Wes Welker, 33, left in the second quarter after taking a hit to the head from Houston Texans cornerback D.J. Swearinger and was under evaluation for a concussion. (Denver Post)

FF Today's Take: Swearinger received a penalty on the play then was confronted by an angry Peyton Manning after the next play... a touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders. Welker suffered two concussions last season and any confirmed concussion diagnosis would likely lead to time missed.
