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.
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.
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.
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.
Welker hauled in two catches for 15 yards as the Rams fell to the Cardinals 27-3 on Sunday. No matter who has been starting, the Rams' passing offense has been atrocious this season and that doesn't bode well for Welker. He has picked up a couple catches a week since joining St. Louis, but his days of being a PPR monster are long behind him.
