Wes Welker injury update: Slot machine ready to cash in for fantasy owners

Broncos receiver Wes Welker (ankle) is listed as probable to face the Eagles on Sunday. He didn't miss any practice and his name on the injury report is just a formality.

It hasn't taken long for Peyton Manning and Welker to establish a rapport. Welker has four TDs and has scored in every game this season. He ranks 13th in the NFL in receptions and he's become as well-rounded as ever with his new team.

The Broncos have used him as an option route guy, which has been his bread and butter for years. The former Patriot caught 100 balls in five of his six seasons with the Pats and he looks like he'll accomplish that feat this year.

Fantasy impact: You're going to play Welker.  While he's more suited for PPR leagues, the TDs coming in bunches have made him a WR1 in standard leagues. The Broncos should be able to top 30 points and the Eagles will have nightmares following Sunday's contest.
