News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): Wentz will return this week. While it might be rough at first, he still has every week starting quarterback upside and shouldn't be on any waiver wires any longer.
General News (Wed Sep 19): practiced fully on Wednesday.
General News (Mon Sep 17): has been medically cleared for contact and is expected to start in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Week 3: vs Indianapolis Colts
FBG says: Good matchup. The Eagles welcome Carson Wentz back this week and it is much needed as while Nick Foles played well last week against the Buccaneers, he has a limited skill set that will show inconsistency throughout the season as we saw in week one. Wentz provides another dimension which is arm strength and mobility that gives defenses trouble as we saw for last season. The biggest issue for the Eagles is the lack of talent at the wide receiving position as the Eagles have lost Mike Wallace for the season which further depletes a unit that is already without Alshon Jeffery and backup Mack Hollins. The Eagles will look to Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz to play a significant role in this passing game this week. The Colts are a unit that on paper are one of the worst corner units in the NFL, but based on their statistics have been playing fairly well this season. Against the Bengals and the Redskins they've only allowed two touchdowns passing and have allowed 249 yards per game passing which is 17th in the NFL. A big reason for this is that Malik Hooker has been a welcome addition to this secondary after missing significant time in 2017 due to injury. This is a unit that has been particularly good at shutting down the tight end as they have not allowed a touchdown to a tight end this season and limited both Tyler Eifert and Jordan Reed to modest games this season.

Latest NewsEagles | Carson Wentz full go (Wed Sep 19, 05:19 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) logged a full practice Wednesday, Sept. 19. link to story Eagles | Carson Wentz named Week 3 starter (Mon Sep 17, 12:12 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has been medically cleared for contact and is expected to start in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts. Our View: No surprise here. The Eagles begin this season 1-1 with Nick Foles as the starter, and they have a great chance to get another 'W' against the Colts in Week 3. Wentz might have some rust to shake off now that he's starting once again. Fantasy GMs should consider him a low-end QB1 with him back in action.

Our View: Corey Clement should have a larger role this week with Sproles out. Wentz could return as soon as next week, but we're not as certain about Jeffery's timeline.
