Wes Welker had 12 receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown off 18 targets during the Patriots' win over the Dolphins on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Wes Welker had 12 receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown off a whopping 18 targets during the New England Patriots win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. He and Aaron Hernandez were targeted on a combined 31 of Tom Brady's 40 pass attempts.
Fantasy Impact: Julian Edelman was marked active despite a concussion, and seemed to have a shot at earning a lot of targets based on his last two outings. He had just one reception off three targets, however, as Brady locked on to Welker and Hernandez.
If you own Welker in a PPR league, he is a weekly must-start at this point. Even in standard formats, he is a solid player to stick in the WR2 slot.
