The Last Angry Fan:
Written by Jeff Mans of the site Fantasy Alarm, and edited by actor/comedian Jonesy, comes the tribute song that praises the fantasy exploits of a certain plucky, gritty, Caucasian wide receiver for the New England Patriots. Moves Like Welker, an ode to fantasy football giant Wes Welker is set to the Maroon 5 tune Moves Like Jagger, but unlike the Maroon 5 version, Moves Like Welker is so bad that it’s good, unlike Moves Like Jagger which is so bad it’s wretched.
Granted, the guy singing this doesn’t quite have the vocal chops that Adam Levine does, but the humorous lyrics make up for the off-key caterwauling. Plus the video is well edited and slightly trippy.
Video follow the jump…
I just wonder why it took so long for someone to finally put Welker’s brilliance on the gridiron into song.

Wes Welker didn’t have any flashy catches or touchdowns in the Patriots’ 34-3 victory over the Chiefs Monday night.
Unless you're an SMU fan -- or scouting guru Mel Kiper -- you may not have Cole Beasley's name on the tip of your tongue.
Beasley is the Mustangs' slot receiver, and although he's been toiling in relative anonymity for am average team in an oft-ignored conference, he's an interesting case study.
See, Beasley is a slot receiver.
Even though he catches plenty...
The Patriots’ Wes Welker was listed on the injury report with a neck issue after Steelers safety Troy Polamalu violently twisted the slot receiver’s head while making a tackle Oct. 30. A big hit by the Giants Nov. 6 resulted in Welker being listed with a rib issue.
Kickoff for the Patriots-Chiefs game is scheduled for 8:30 p.m., which is still hours away. For the players, it takes foooooooorever. They wait and wait, go to meetings, then wait some more.
It’s worth asking, while we’re still killing time today… what do the Patriots do while they’re waiting?
“We have meetings in the morning,” WR Wes Welker said, “and then I go back...
It did not receive much publicity at the time, but Congress recently slipped through a law requiring anyone who maintains a sports blog to post at least one Tim Tebow-related item every single day. It’s true. Look it up.
Luckily, I recently stumbled upon two relatively entertaining videos that will fill today’s Tebow quota.
The first comes via yesterday’s Hot Clicks (which...
Tom Brady has been here before, limited options that must produce. Monday night showcased his skill for raising his offense’s level even when they don’t have the talent. Wes Welker and Deion Branch were non factors and Welker has been on lockdown since his hot start of the season. Sadly, Branch looks slow and his quickness, which was his trademark skill, is quickly dissipating...
That would be New England tight end Rob Gronkowski pictured above, pinwheeling into the end zone, scoring for the second time in Monday night's 34-3 win. Gronkowski finished with four catches, 96 yards and 21.6 standard points, dealing painful fantasy losses to a few of us. We shall speak no more of him ... well, except to note that he has a decent chance to break the single...
By Brian MacPhersonFOXBORO -- Three Patriots did not participate and almost a dozen others were limited in practice at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday, according to the Patriots' release.
Linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb), Brandon Spikes (knee) and Jeff Tarpinian (illness) did not participate in practice.
Safeties Patrick Chung (foot) and James Ihedigbo (shoulder); cornerback...
Week 12 is going to be a fun week in the NFL. 3 games are going to take place on Thanksgiving, and the rest fall into the normal Sunday and Monday time slots.Last week, players like Wes Welker and Greg Jennings disappointed fantasy owners, while players like Jordy Nelson and Rob Gronkowski took the Lime-Light. Many of the players this week have a chance to improve upon bad performances...
It started ugly for the Patriots and ended ugly for the Chiefs. In the end, it was a second consecutive win for the 7-3 Patriots.
The final? Patriots 34, Chiefs 3
QB Tom Brady got himself together to go 15 of 27 for 234yards, while TE Rob Gronkowski had two scores and 96 yards. WR Wes Welker kept his consecutive catch streak going with one reception, while CB Kyle Arrington had two...
Matthew Stafford hadn't been right for a couple of weeks. He had been OK, but earlier this year, Stafford was better than OK and has consistenly been one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy play.
On Sunday against Cam Newton and the porous Carolina Panthers' pass defense, Stafford was in line for a big day.
And for a while, it looked as if he'd get stood up by the Panthers...
