Legion Report
There are a lot of mouths to feed in Denver with Welker, Decker and Thomas at WR. That being said, Welker should be slotted as a nice 2WR option, as his production and consistency give you exactly what you need from a 2WR.
 
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Like I said about Thomas, Peyton Manning will be setting records in 2013, which means his WRs will have BEAST like numbers. While Thomas goes deep, Decker does his curls/slants, Welker will be finding all the soft spots without the ability to be doubled team.
Edelman is going to be the Patriots #2 WR. He was very good last season before getting injured as he was a consistent 60 Yards with the likely TD when he played. Julian is very similar to Wes Welker, just about half the talent. His big frame will get him some nice Fantasy numbers over the middle, Brady is very comfortable with him as well. No homo on that one.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Ladarius Webb may work the slot and cover Welker for a good portion of this game. With Thomas and Decker as other options Manning won't force the subject.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Ravens don't have the corners to stop all of Denver's weapons. Welker could thrive in debut.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Still a Welker fan, but numbers destined to dwindle
 
  
Staff Rankings

Welker is the only receiver in NFL history to produce 5 seasons with at least 100-plus receptions. He remains a No. 2 Fantasy WR in all leagues, but he's no longer the No.1 option anymore in his new passing attack. Welker should be drafted in Round 4 in standard leagues and Round 3 in PPR formats.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Welker is going to be a nice addition to the Broncos offense and I think Manning will try to involve him early and often against the Ravens revamped defense.
