Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd combined for 17 receptions and 250 yards receiving during Sunday night's game between the Patriots and the Ravens. We break down the fantasy implications.

Wes Welker led the New England Patriots in receiving Sunday night with eight receptions for 142 yards on 10 targets. Brandon Lloyd picked up 108 yards on nine receptions in 12 targets. The two combined for over 50 percent of the Pats' 41 targets on the night.

Fantasy Impact: Julian Edelman left Sunday's game early with a hand injury, allowing Welker and Lloyd to suck up targets down field. With Rob Gronkowski struggling to get free (two catches, 21 yards) it was up to Welker and Lloyd to help carry the passing game. Welker does not appear to be in any danger of losing his role in the offense, despite weeks of hand-wringing by the media.
