Wes Welker injury update: Fantasy must-start despite questionable tag

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Wes Welker is questionable for Week 13 against the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots WR Wes Welker (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Unlike most players with the 'questionable" tag, this is basically meaningless in Welker's case--Bill Belichick is just resting his star players for the playoffs. There is no danger of Welker missing the game.

Welker has 80 catches for 961 yards and three TDs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Nothing to see here, start him as usual in your lineups. Welker has been his usual PPR monster self this season, although the low number of scores downgrades him to a WR2 in standard leagues.

Regardless, Welker should start in every league and is one of the safest plays for the fantasy playoffs.
