Summary

Will the real Carson Wentz please stand up? Is Wentz the rookie who went 5-1 and completed 65% of his passes with a 1.7 TD-to-0.3 interception rate in six games with Lane Johnson in the lineup, or is Wentz the deer-in-the-headlights who went 2-8 while completing 61% of his passes and throwing 2x as many interceptions as touchdowns when Johnson was out of the lineup? In truth? He's probably somewhere in between. The Eagles threw Wentz into the fray immediately, in spite of a collegiate resume that lacked top-tier competition. Optimists will point to Wentz' strong play behind the intended offensive line, as well as the major upgrade at receiver (Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith). Pessimists will point to Wentz' poor decision-making under pocket pressure and a lack of running attack to keep defenses honest. Simply put, fantasy owners are better off targeting Wentz in the later rounds as a QB2. He has undeniable upside given the natural progression NFL starters take between Year One and Year Two but there are enough question marks to wonder if he ever matches his draft day status as the 2nd overall pick.
