WR Fantasy Football News

Emmanuel Sanders owners can rack up the points while Welker sits on the sidelines.

Fantasy WR - Wes Welker, the NFL slot machine who has recently made WR news, will be missing the first quarter of the season after violating the NFL substance abuse policy.

Welker was one of five Broncos who had 10 or more touchdowns last year and has been arguably the best slot receiver in the NFL over the last five years. Welker will be missed, but the Broncos still have plenty of weapons at their disposal, and Emmanuel Sanders is primed to have four monster weeks in Welker's absence.

Fantasy Injury Updates -

Newton and Panthers coach Ron Rivera say that Cam is “on pace” to play, but savvy fantasy owners should already know to hope for the best and plan for the worse.
