0 100 yard games and just 1 TD after week 8 last season.

Last year Peyton Manning saw 160 Blitz’s and was only sacked twice. His average time to throw the ball in a Blitz was 2.13 seconds, according to PFF. A reason for Manning’s success against the Blitz last season was his “security blanket’s” in both Wes Welker and Knowshon Moreno. With Moreno gone, Montee Ball isn’t the receiver Moreno was (60 receptions appear out of reach.) You can expect Defenses to continue to put pressure on the 38 year old Peyton Manning and with this you can expect a lot quick passes to Welker again in 2014. However, the concerning part with Wes Welker is that he is just one bad concussion away from ending his career after receiving two in 2013. Consequently, Denver resulted in signing Emmanuel Sanders – who’s able to play a similar role. If he’s able to play a full 17 Game season, we love Welker … but we’re skeptical he’s able to do that in 2014.

Not a sexy choice, but hard to overlook a high-volume WR playing with Peyton.

I have been wishy washy on Welker this year. His age and concussion history could provide some room for Cody Latimer and Emmanuel Sanders to take a step up at some point, but as long as he's on the field he's going to catch many, many passes.

None of this information has been updated since it was originally published. Wes Welker (25th among WR/62nd overall) – Everyone knows Peyton Manning is still the quarterback right? […]

Should continue to be a PPR machine in this offense. No Decker helps.

PPR leaguers favorite selection. He will now where the concussion helmet so hoping he remains on the field all of 2014.

He started the 2013 season with a 6-game scoring streak, scoring a total of 8 touchdowns over that span, along with producing at least 9 standard Fantasy points in 8 straight games. Then came Denver’s bye in Week 9, and Welker fell apart. He had just one game with double digits in Fantasy points in his final five outings before missing the last three games of the year with a concussion. I have Welker a bit higher then the majority of others but I still consider Welker a No. 2 Fantasy receiver worth drafting as early as Round 4 or 5 but I like his upside this year if he can remain healthy. If he can stay healthy for 16 games you could be looking at 80-plus receptions, 1,000-plus yards and at least 8 touchdowns.

Concussions caught up with Welker this year and he scored only one touchdown from Week 10 to Week 17. I would be concerned about drafting a 33-year old receiver high that has a significant concussion history. I do not think he stays healthy this year.
Rotoprofessor | Aug 9th
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Wes Welker plays for Denver so, by almost default he’s still worth a Top 40 pick right? As you read that statement it should come off as naive, but that feels like many people’s thought process at this point.
