Wes Welker has productive fantasy performance, leaves with injury against Chiefs

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Welker was again productive in Week 11 but he left with a possible concussion.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker was again one of Peyton Manning's primary targets in a Week 11 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.

Welker was targeted ten times, catching eight passes for 72 yards. He didn't score a touchdown and left the game after taking a blow to the head. He was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion and did not return.

Fantasy spin: Welker has been as reliable as ever in 2013. The switch from Tom Brady to Peyton Manning has been a smooth one, and the Broncos' wide receivers is among the most consistent players at his position this season.

Still, the head injury is a concern going forward. The Broncos play Welker's old team, the New England Patriots, in Week 12, and it's unclear whether or not Welker will be able to go at this point. Be sure to monitor his situation this week.
