Found September 12, 2012 on NESN.com:
The wide receiver position has never been more important to the game of football. With teams taking the the air more and more, and with quarterbacks signing huge contracts, the guys that catch all those passes are taking center stage in the NFL with some of the sport's most gifted athletes at the front of the pack. With such a huge amount of talent at the position, picking out just one to single out is a tougher task than covering them. The Patriots are well aware of the ability that Wes Welker has.

Wes Welker's Lighter Workload a Situation to Monitor Moving Forward

Fantasy owners and Patriots fans alike were thinking the same thing on Sunday, where is Wes Welker? The Patriots All-Pro receiver played in just 63% of the team’s snaps on offense and caught three passes for fourteen yards, which raises questions, especially due to his tumultuous offseason. Welker was in his familiar position in the slot to start the game, but was off the field...

Wes Welker Calls Tom Brady 'Toughest Metrosexual I've Ever Come Across'

A lot -- probably too much -- has been made about the boo-boo on Tom Brady's nose that the quarterback suffered on Sunday.

Hop On Board The Welk-ome Wagon, Wes

Oh week one, you have to be one of the greatest weeks to trade for an underperforming star.  Wes Welker turned in a complete clunker of a game vs the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, going for 3 catches on 5 targets for 14 yards and in very un-Welker like fashion topped it off by dropping a pass on what would’ve been a sure first down.  He’s the buzz of the week in terms of fantasy...
