New England Patriots WR Wes Welker (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Welker was limited in practice all week, but it sounds like Bill Belichick's usual tactic of resting stars and keeping opponents on their toes in game-planning.
Welker is fully expected to play this week. He has 38 catches for 484 yards and one TD on the season.
Fantasy Impact: The early-season drama over snap counts is well in the past - Welker is once again a huge piece of the Pats' offense. The Seahawks have one of the best pass defenses in the league, but New England is set up well to exploit them - Welker will be lining up against the declining Marcus Trufant.
Fantasy owners can safely plug in Welker as as a WR2 this week. He'll get his numbers, even if New England struggles on offense.
