New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker was no Gronkowski, but he had a solid day of fantasy production despite that. Welker caught seven passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. He also let a touchdown pass slip through his hands.
If you don't like Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, you don't like America. Well okay, the more accurate phrase would probably be: if you don't like Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, you don't like fantasy points. Going into Week 14, Welker had already recorded 93 receptions for 1253 yards and eight touchdowns. That could pass for a great full season of work, but he has shown no signs of stopping in recent weeks, generating 11 receptions for 110 yards in week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts.
With New England's number two-ranked passing attack set to take on the number nine-ranked Washington pass defense on Sunday, SB Nation's fantasy sports site, Fake Teams, ranked Welker the No. 4 overall wide receiver for week 14.
