New England Patriots WR Wes Welker was productive, but held out of the endzone again in Week 4. Against the Buffalo Bills, Welker hauled in nine catches on 11 targets for 129 yards as the Patriots defeated the Bills 52-28.
Fantasy Impact: I think we can finally drop the subject of whether or not the Pats are phasing Welker out of their plans. Welker was once again Tom Brady's favorite target over the middle and in underneath routes. After four games, he's now on pace for around 100 receptions, right in line with his career norms, and despite not scoring a touchdown yet is still a solid WR2 play week in and week out. The Pats play the Denver Broncos in Week 5.
