Wes Welker limited in Thursday's practice, fantasy value just fine

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

Wes Welker was limited in Thursday practices, but should be fine for Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots WR Wes Welker (ankle) was officially limited in Thursday's practice, but there's no danger of him missing Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Welker was also limited on Wednesday as a glorified day of rest. He should be ready to play in Week 8.

Welker leads the league in both receptions and receiving yards (54 and 688, respectively). He has two TDs as well.

Fantasy Impact: There should be nothing to worry about here. Bill Belichick likes to limit his star players in practice, so expect Welker to suit up and produce as usual.

After some early-season drama, Welker is an easy WR1 in standard leagues and a PPR stud. Continue starting him as usual.
