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 | Carson Wentz finishes minicamp strong (Sat Jun 17, 08:22 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz 'appeared to hit his stride' during the team's three-day minicamp, throwing crisper and more accurate passes than he did at the beginning.

Our View: Wentz is working to avoid any sophomore slump. The Eagles did a lot of work this offseason to put better pass-catching talent around him. New WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith should help Wentz avoid any slump and put up better numbers than he did last season during his rookie year. Wentz is a QB2 for fantasy owners this year and is going off the board at QB18 (12.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Eagles | Alshon Jeffery finding a rhythm (Sun Jun 11, 09:23 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery said he and QB Carson Wentz and the rest of the offense are starting to click.

Our View: That's great news for Eagles fans and fantasy owners. Jeffery signed a one-year 'prove it' deal with Philadelphia earlier this year. If he plays up to his potential in this offense, Jeffery could get that 'break the bank' deal he wanted. Fantasy players should look at him as a WR2 with upside. His current ADP is WR16 (3.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.
