Neither team nor player's agent will confirm, but Broncos are expected to sign former Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders, per league sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Sanders will likely replace Eric Decker in Denver's three-WR set, so Andre Caldwell probably sees spot duty as the team's WR4. Sanders was #35 in standard and #32 in PPR, and we'd expect that to be his floor playing with Peyton Manning in the Broncos' potent offense.

Broncos re-sign WR Andre Caldwell
Tuesday, March 11, 2014, 3:13pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

WR Andre Caldwell agrees to stay with the Broncos, per league source. Two years, with a max value of $3.45 million.

Fantasy Impact:

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

Denver Post - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

Whatever sleeper value Andre Caldwell held late in the season is gone now. It looks like the Broncos' offense will be at full strength heading into the postseason.

Wes Welker expected to miss the final two games
Friday, December 20, 2013, 10:24am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker is expected to be held out of the team's final two regular-season games as he recovers from two concussions in a span of three weeks.

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Caldwell will continue to fill in. He'll be a WR3 for the remainder of the season.

Jay Glazer reports that Broncos WR Wes Welker is out for Week 16.

Fantasy Impact:

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
Thursday, December 19, 2013, 11:34am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Wes Welker has not been medically cleared to return to practice, and Denver Broncos coach John Fox said only that the wide receiver is "day-to-day.''

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."

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Broncos WR Wes Welker is not practicing Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Since the Broncos last played on Thursday, Dec. 12, they held a practice today. Denver visits Houston in an early afternoon game so we'll know well in advance about Welker's status. Andre Caldwell caught two TD passes last week getting time with Welker out of action.

Wes Welker suffers another concussion
Sunday, December 8, 2013, 6:51pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Wes Welker has been ruled out for the second half of the Denver Broncos game against the Tennessee Titans after sustaining his second concussion this season.

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.
