Wes Welker, Eric Decker on injury report, fantasy owners shouldn't worry

USA TODAY Sports

Two of the Broncos star receivers have been limited this week, but there's no reason to believe they won't suit up Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Wes Welker was limited again in practice on Thursday, while Eric Decker was upgraded to a full participant. After taking limited reps on Wednesday, Decker appears ready to go for Week 2.

Welker's tenure in New England proved that he often goes through practice as a limited participant. As he played all of the regular season opener, there's no reason to believe he's in jeopardy of missing Sunday's game against the Giants.

Fantasy impact: Barring a major setback, Welker should be fine. His ankle injury did not show up until the midweek injury report. He didn't do any major damage during Week 1's matchup with Baltimore.

Peyton Manning showed great rapport with Welker in their first game together. The Broncos quarterback also voiced his desire to get Decker more involved in the passing game going forward. While there won't be enough targets to please everyone, expect these two wideouts to be solid options.
