Fantasy Football News - According to Rotoworld, someone with “Intimate Knowledge of the Team’s Thinking”, believes that the New England Patriots will not tag wide receiver Wes Welker, making him a soon-to-be free agent.
FFLockerRoom Take - While this is all just speculation as of right now because NO decision has been yet, this definitely makes us think some. Tom Brady, who is starting to decline some as he ages, would sorely miss his top target of the past several years. And let’s not forget Welker who also would most likely have a significantly lesser quarterback throwing to him in 2013 if he does indeed decide to leave. And with key injuries to tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, this could be a major fantasy killer of sorts.
This is something that you will want to continue to track on FFLockerRoom throughout the off-season as the departure of Welker would mean affecting several key players in the fantasy football realm.
