Wes Welker WR DEN 7 Days
Welker (ankle) had two catches on three targets for 16 yards Sunday against the Chargers.
The Broncos ran the ball 39 times versus only 22 pass attempts, and with Demaryius Thomas getting 11 targets, there just weren't enough balls to go around for Welker to make much of an impact. Welker has scored just two touchdowns all season, and he's failed to reach even 20 receiving yards in three of the last four games, making him a very unreliable fantasy option in Week 16 against the Bengals.

Welker (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Welker is out there, as expected, but with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders also in the Broncos' wideout mix, the veteran slot man has been a hit-or-miss fantasy option of late.

Welker (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Broncos' official site reports.
Welker should be a go Sunday after practicing fully Friday, but his production this season has been sporadic, with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders also in the Broncos' wideout mix.

Welker (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.
Welker thus appears to be on track to play Sunday against the Chargers. He's coming off a six-catch, 82-yard effort in Week 14, but his production this season has been sporadic, which limits his utility to deeper formats.

Welker (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.
We'll revisit Welker's status Thursday, but the report suggests that the wideout should be ready to play Sunday against the Chargers. Welker caught six passes for a season-high 82 receiving yards in Week 14's win over the Bills.

Welker had six catches on six targets for a season-high 82 yards during Sunday's win over the Bills.
The Broncos' air attack was very limited Sunday, as quarterback Peyton Manning threw only 20 passes, none of which went for touchdowns. Welker led the team in receiving yards and co-led them in targets with Emmanuel Sanders. It was a decent output for Welker, though hardly one that moved the fantasy needle. He'll look to keep his positive momentum going in Week 15 against the Chargers, who he had only five yards against back in Week 8.

Welker caught 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 29-16 win over the Chiefs.
Welker converted a 3rd-and-10 during the first quarter, and then went missing for the rest of the day. Even with Julius Thomas (ankle) sidelined, Welker hasn't seen many targets, as the Broncos seemingly prefer to just throw even more passes to Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

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) had four catches on five targets for 24 yards Sunday against the Raiders.
After getting knocked out of last Sunday's game against the Patriots with a lower-back injury, Welker was able to practice fully all week, though that did little for his fantasy production Sunday. Welker has been a shell of what he was last season, failing to reach 65 yards in a game this season while scoring just one touchdown.
