Madden '13/NFL.com projection:
1,178 receiving yards, 8 touchdowns
Not sure why the latest projection doesn't include receptions, which is typically the most telling stat with Welker. A season ago, he led the NFL with 122 catches, 22 more than the runner-up, the Falcons' Roddy White. Welker had a career-high 1,569 receiving yards last season. The projected drop-off there makes sense with the addition of Brandon Lloyd and the continued emergence of gifted tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Set the over/under at 100 catches for No. 83.
