Week 3: vs New York Giants

All TE vs NYG

FBG says: Tough matchup. Doug Pederson's exceptionally pass-happy Eagles offense is surprising, but does make sense. It's indeed where all of his talent lies, so we should expect the trend to continue. Wentz has a gifted if inconsistent all-around playmaker (Alshon Jeffery), a reliable, seam-busting tight end (Zach Ertz), and an occasionally dynamic slot man (Nelson Agholor) to throw to. And through 2 weeks, he's topped 300 yards and 2 touchdowns twice. There are peripheral concerns here, though. Wentz struggled mightily with the deep ball as a rookie, and thus far in 2017 he's completed just 7 of 20 passes beyond 15 yards; that 35% rate would've ranked dead last among regular starters last season. It caps his upside noticeably, as accomplished deep-ball studs Jeffery and Torrey Smith go to waste a bit. He's also been beaten around more than usual thus far as his once-elite line has struggled. This remains a flawed passing game, but one that's at least shown it can flash dynamism. The Giants generally fared well in Week 2 without standout cornerback Janoris Jenkins, and they're expected to have him back for Week 3. Matthew Stafford and the Lions were ultimately effective through the air, but the Giants only allowed two receptions of note (both touchdowns, which obviously hurt). With him, Apple, and slot man Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the field - as well as a dynamic pass rush - this is a tough team to involve your wideouts much against. Their tight end defense, on the other hand, is an exploitable unit. Through 2 weeks they've been worked over by Jason Witten (7 catches for 59 yards and 1 touchdown) and Eric Ebron (5 catches for 42 yards and 1 touchdown).
