2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-15-2014 by Rusty Reeves

Wes Welker is all the things you want in a slot receiver: smart, shifty and has good hands. In the history of the game, few wide receivers have had the knack for finding a hole (sitting in it and gaining 10 yards) like Welker. Even though he missed three games due to concussion-related issues, Welker was one of four Denver pass-catchers to reach double-digit touchdowns last year. His 10 scores were a career-high and kept his fantasy value relevant. Anyone who is on the field regularly for Denver needs to be in fantasy lineups on Sundays. At 33 years old and with a few concussions to his name, health is obviously a concern with Welker. However, Manning trusts him and Decker is gone. Emmanuel Sanders should take some of the action that Decker left behind, but Welker also figures to get some of that. He's still a low-end WR2 and will probably put up a line of 85-850-10 with ease in 2014, even with a couple missed games to be expected. If he stays on the field all season, a sixth season of over 100 yards is within reach in this offense.

Editor's note: PPR stud when healthy. Safer than his average draft position indicates (WR24, 57.49).
