Summary

Carson Wentz gained valuable experience as a rookie starter, but his play was uneven. There were encouraging signs, but an equal number of concerning metrics. The jury was still out. Last year, Wentz answered his critics and emphatically established himself as one of the league's best young passers. He suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Rams, but not before setting the Eagles on a course for their first Super Bowl championship. At the time of his injury, Wentz led the league in passing touchdowns, passer rating, and QBR, and the Eagles were 11-2 on the season. Wentz' success came in spite of an aggressive downfield approach, flying in the face of nearly three decades of "dink and dunk" West Coast philosophies. He ranked second to DeShaun Watson in completed air yards (8.3 per pass), and ranked as the most aggressive passer in the league, according to NFL.com's Next Gen Stats; 25.7% of his passes weren't into tight coverage. All eyes are on Wentz' recovery, but the Eagles have the luxury of not rushing their franchise player back. With Nick Foles playing at a high level and winning the Super Bowl MVP, expect Wentz to take as much time as he needs and only step back on the field when he's 100%. Wentz' fantasy value hinges on how quickly he returns, but drafting him as a QB1 will require a leap of faith since he won't play in the preseason, more than likely. (May 21)

Eagles | Carson Wentz takes part in individual drills (Tue May 22, 12:09 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) saw some action during individual drills at OTAs on Tuesday, May 22.

Our View: Wentz has been ahead in his recovery from the knee injury that cut his 2017 season short. He underwent surgery in mid-December last year, and even with him being ahead of schedule, Wentz's status for Week 1 of the regular season is unknown. Barring any setbacks, we could see him under center for the Eagles when Week 1 rolls around.
