Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle) fully participated in practice this past week, and is expected to start Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Welker has 50 catches for 378 yards and a league leading eight touchdowns this year.
Fantasy impact: Welker being listed on the team's injury report is really just news about nothing, as he was never expected to miss any time.
There's no question who quarterback Peyton Manning's number one target is when it comes to putting points up on the board. Welker is as sure handed as they come and hasn't missed a beat this year.
Any fantasy owners who were worried that he would have trouble transition from Tom Brady in New England to a more demanding Manning in Denver can clearly lay that to rest.
Short of having a major injury or a big shakeup at the trade deadline that sees Welker miraculously not end up being a Bronco for the rest of the season, there's no two ways about it. Welker is a must-start player each week.
The Indianapolis Colts give up the 12th fewest points to wide receivers this year.
