The Broncos have put him on the injury report for most of the season, which isn't all that uncommon for a 32-year-old wideout. Welker is on pace to catch 100 balls again with 50 catches on 71 targets for 555 yards and nine scores.
It didn't take long for him to develop a rapport with Peyton Manning and he's had a nice level of consistency along the way. Welker has five catches or more in all but one game, but he did catch a ball in that win over the Giants.
Welker doesn't run long routes and that helps him stay within his friendly little fantasy box -- or something. He hasn't had a completion for more than 33 yards and he's only caught one other ball for more than 30 yards all year.
Fantasy impact: The reliable veteran is fine and PPR owners will have a tough time finding a better option. Start him..
