Broncos re-sign WR Andre Caldwell
Tuesday, March 11, 2014, 3:13pm
With Eric Decker likely on his way out, Caldwell could step into a starter's role in 2014. He'd be an interesting sleeper in the later rounds playing in Denver's high-octane offense. Consider him a WR5 type for now.

Wes Welker cleared for playoffs
Thursday, January 2, 2014, 4:16pm
There was a time as Wes Welker was recovering from his second concussion that he felt he was ready to play.
The Broncos' medical team held the star slot receiver out a while longer, anyway, and in retrospect he's glad for it.
"It took a little bit of time," Welker said Thursday in his first interview since his second concussion in a three-week period on Dec. 8. "Even when I felt I was 100 percent, looking back you weren't 100 percent. It's always a tricky injury and just trying to manage it and everything else, but the doctors and trainers did a great job of just doing the things necessary to get me back out on the field."
He was cleared for full football activities this week, and Welker will play in the Broncos' second-round AFC playoff game on Jan. 12 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High against Indianapolis, Kansas City or San Diego.

Andre Caldwell will continue to fill in. He'll be a WR3 for the remainder of the season.
Glazer: Wes Welker out for Week 16

This was the feeling once Welker started missing early week practices. Andre Caldwell will be a Sneaky Start once again in his absence. He is currently our #33 WR in standard formats.
Andre Caldwell likely to get another start

Before he can play in a game, Welker would have to be declared symptom-free by both the Broncos' medical staff and a designated independent physician who has been approved by the NFL and the players' association. Welker would then have to proceed through multiple days of limited activity before he could return to practice on a limited basis.
Andre Caldwell, who got most of the snaps last week in Welker's absence, is expected to be the team's third receiver Sunday against the Houston Texans. Caldwell had six catches for 59 yards and two touchdowns against the Chargers.
"I thought Bubba Caldwell played really well," quarterback Peyton Manning said. " ... Great route on that first touchdown, did a great job getting in the end zone on a play he hasn't [worked] that much, so that's a good job knowing what to do, being in his playbook. We'll count on him this week if he has to play."
Caldwell is a compelling WR3 start this week but does carry some risk since he doesn't have a large body of work in the Denver offense, and may not see a heavy workload given all the other weapons that Peyton Manning has at his disposal. Caldwell is currently our 33rd-ranked WR in standard formats.

Wes Welker suffers another concussion
Sunday, December 8, 2013, 6:51pm
Welker took a hit to the head on a play across the middle late in the second quarter. His neck was bent awkwardly on the play.
It's his second concussion with Denver, and the chances of Welker coming back for Week 15 could be pretty slim as the Broncos have a Thursday night game against the Chargers. The short week really hurts owners. Of course, if Welker is out, Eric Decker could see more targets and Andre Caldwell becomes a potential, sneaky play.
