Player Outlook

Wes Welker is once again a free agent, and we'll see if he tries to extend his career by playing with a new team this season. He appeared in eight games for the Rams in 2015 and finished with 13 catches for 102 yards. He's no longer a difference maker for NFL teams or Fantasy owners at 35, and we doubt he lands with a team where he can make a significant impact. Keep an eye on his status in training camp, but Welker should not be drafted in most Fantasy leagues this year.

  • Wes Welker: "A small percentage" he plays again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Welker stated there's "a small percentage" he will play again, the Miami Herald reports. Welker has served as a voluntary coach during part of the Dolphins' offseason program, but the Dolphins have been adamant they do not intend to sign Welker as a player. Last month, head coach Adam Gase declared that Welker is always welcome back in a "pseudo coaching-type" role, however. Ultimately, there just doesn't appear to be a market for the 35-year-old at this point in time, and although he won't be donning a Dolphin jersey seemingly ever again, Welker will forever live on in Miami lore as becoming one of the only players in NFL history to attempt a kickoff, extra point and field goal, return both a kickoff and punt, and log a tackle, all in a single game (Oct. 10, 2004 versus New England, filling in for injured K Olindo Mare).

  • Rams' Wes Welker: Struggled to produce in 2015
    By RotoWire Staff

    Welker finished an abbreviated campaign for St. Louis with 13 catches for 102 yards. Welker's career was considered to possibly be over before St. Louis signed him in November. While he wasn't bad, he didn't seem to have the spark he once had as a PPR monster. If he wants to keep playing, he's likely to find a home somewhere next season, but his days of fantasy relevance are nearing their conclusion.

  • Rams' Wes Welker: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Welker (calf) is active for Sunday's contest against the Lions, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Welker is unlikely to experience an uptick in usage with the switch from Nick Foles to Case Keenum (concussion). However, even if he does, standout plays haven't been a part of Welker's repertoire as a Ram, as evidence by 4.5 YPT.

  • Rams' Wes Welker: Set to play against Lions
    By RotoWire Staff

    Welker (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports. Welker should see a few targets as his team's primary slot receiver, but there simply isn't much upside to be had in a run-first St. Louis offense that has scored 36 points in his four games. Welker only has nine catches for 72 yards on 16 targets, and it isn't clear that Case Keenum is an upgrade from Nick Foles.

  • Rams' Wes Welker: Limited Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Welker (calf) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Welker has suited up in each of the Rams' four games since joining the organization on Nov. 9, totaling nine catches (on 16 targets) for 72 yards. With such negligible production, he isn't much of a fantasy consideration, and a calf injury won't aid in finding success in a Case Keenum-helmed offense.
