Wes Welker WR DEN 3 Days
Welker had four catches on four targets for 18 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Dolphins.
The touchdown was Welker's second this season, though he's failed to reach the 65-yard mark in any game. Demaryius Thomas (10 catches on 13 targets for 87 yards and three touchdowns) and Emmanuel Sanders (nine catches on 13 targets for 125 yards) continue to dominate the looks from quarterback Peyton Manning, which keeps Welker's fantasy upside fairly limited.

Welker had four catches on six targets for 28 yards Sunday against the Rams.
Welker continues to be a shell of what he was last season, as he has yet to record more than 60 yards in a game this season, while catching just one touchdown in eight games. However, he could see a spike in usage in Week 12, as Emmanuel Sanders could miss out after suffering a concussion on Sunday.

Welker (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Welker is out there if you need him this week, though with fellow wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders both seeing plenty of targets in the Denver offense, Welker has been a hit-or-miss option of late.

Welker (back) is considered day-to-day moving forward, USA Today reports.
Welker was knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Patriots after taking a considerable blow to his lower back. Fortunately, Welker avoided a serious injury and should return to the field soon. While his practice involvement will be monitored throughout this week, Welker's current day-to-day status is certainly encouraging for his availability this Sunday against the lowly Raiders.

Welker caught 2-of-2 targets for five yards in Thursday's 35-21 win over the Chargers
Welker is still getting plenty of run in three-wide formations, but Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas and (to a less extent) Julius Thomas have been hogging all of the targets. Welker had 13 receptions and 18 targets through two games, but he has just six receptions and six targets over the last three contests. While he should see a bit more work in coming weeks, it increasingly appears that his targets will be much harder to come by than they were last season.

Welker caught all three of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-17 win over the 49ers.
Welker scored a rare (for him) long touchdown from 38 yards out on the record-tying 508th passing score of Peyton Manning's storied career. The future Hall of Famer attempted just 26 passes on the night, and the targets were dominated by Demaryius Thomas (nine) and TE Julius Thomas (six). Welker still has a key role in an elite offense, but it's a bit concerning for owners that he has just four receptions on four targets over the last two games, after recording 13 receptions on 18 targets through his first two appearances of the season.
