Cincinnati is ranked 12th against fantasy receivers and the Bengals will have the advantage coming off a bye week. The way the Patriots are playing right now, Edelman has WR3 value only.
Welker is fourth in the pecking order in the Denver passing game right now, but there is still room for WR3 production when your quarterback is Peyton Manning.
