I'm in a league just like this (except ours is 1 point/25 return yards instead of 1 point/20) and Welker was around the #20 WR all year long. On top of that, he was the most CONSISTENT WR in the entire league. He was good for 4-5 catches, 40-60 yards and 100 return yards every game. Fortunately, I DRAFTED him in the 15th round.

I think Welker's value is about the same in New England as it is in Miami. Those expecting a "breakout" performance from Welker this year are going to be disappointed. LAST YEAR was Welker's breakout year. You missed the boat. He might equal last year's numbers, but he won't far exceed them, so you won't be getting a lot of value by drafting him this year.
