Broncos WR Wes Welker is not considering retirement

Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker @WesWelker has not considered retirement after sustaining a concussion during Saturday night's preseason game versus the Texans. The 33-year-old Welker has now suffered three concussions in one year, but Broncos head coach John Fox says that retirement "has not been brought up at all." Welker is questionable for the Broncos' Week 1 game against the Colts.

Fantasy Analysis:

Welker won't be quitting football, but it's hard to blame reporters for asking. Welker's over-the-middle style has exposed him to a huge number of hits over his long career, and his health has suffered for it. Meanwhile, Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders @E_Sanders88 scored twice in Saturday's game, and there's a strong case to be made that Sanders should be considered Denver's WR2. If you do decide to draft Welker, don't plan on him playing a full season. He's being taken as the 19th WR in fantasy drafts while Sanders is going as the 31st.

Perhaps the hits to his head are having a larger impact than what he can grasp.
