Wes Welker injury update: Broncos WR probable, will play for fantasy owners

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Welker is listed as probable and is expected to play Sunday night when the Broncos play the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle) practiced Friday and will play in the team's Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Welker practiced with the team all week and is in no danger of missing Sunday night's matchup against the AFC West leader.

Fantasy Impact: Peyton Manning and crew will be facing one of the league's best all-around defense in the undefeated Chiefs. Kansas City has had a habit of limited opponents' rushing attacks, creating pressure and forcing turnovers all year. Of course, they haven't yet played an offense of Denver's caliber. Just like every other week, Welker figures to be a big part of the offense. Although Welker put up his first dud of the season last week, catching just three passes for 21 yards, owners have every reason to keep him in their starting lineups.

Welker is averaging almost six catches and one touchdown per game. Whether you're in a PPR or standard league, those are numbers that everyone can live with. Look for Welker to once again be Manning's go-to guy. Even though Welker hasn't had a 100-yard game this season, he remains a low-end WR1.
