Wes Welker Injury Update: Patriots WR's questionable tag shouldn't be a fantasy issue

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

Wes Welker is questionable for Sunday against the Jets. We break down the fantasy implications.

Wes Welker (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for the divisional matchup with the Jets.

Welker is second in the league in receptions with 48 and is second in yardage with 622 yards. Amazingly, he has 51 targets.

Fantasy Impact: The talk of Welker getting "phased out" got phased out pretty quickly. He's been extremely busy even though the Patriots have led the league in rushing attempts on the season. Of course, it helps to be leading the league in offensive snaps as well.

Even though the Patriots' passing attack is close to full strength, Welker is a must-start option this week and owners shouldn't be overly concerned about his ankle.
