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). Pessimist 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.

Eagles | LeGarrette Blount likes new QB (Thu May 18, 10:19 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount said QB Carson Wentz is 'one of those guys you want to build a team around' and 'has the potential to be a really special player.'

Our View: Wentz is a player that the whole staff...and now a new teammate...are excited to work with. He struggled as his rookie season went on last year, but now Wentz has better weapons around him. The addition of WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith should help him stay consistent as a passer.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery impressing new team (Sun May 14, 09:11 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery has embraced the coaching staff and has been competing at a high level since joining the team, according to head coach Doug Pederson, and Pederson said the hope for the offseason is to have Jeffery and QB Carson Wentz on the same page.

Our View: The Eagles finally have a true no.1 wide receiver for Wentz, and Jeffery could have plenty of fantasy value with his new team. His current ADP is WR16 (3.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.
