Wes Welker Week 12 Fantasy Football Update

New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker rebounded from a poor performance last week against the San Diego Chargers and had his sixth 100-yard receiving game of the year with 115 yards. Welker also pulled in two touchdowns which is his second game of the year for Welker to have two touchdowns; the last was on the opening week of the season. Welker was able to get open against the Philadelphia Eagles secondary as he had a game high eight receptions.

Welker's two touchdown receptions came on a 41-yard reception in the second quarter and a 9-yard score in the third quarter. Depending on your league Welker could have cost owners some points by rushing for minus nine yards on one play. Even with the negative rushing yardage play, he currently is the top wide receiver for Week 12 with approximately 23 points in standard leagues and upwards toward 30 in point per reception leagues.
