Summary

Carson Wentz enters his fifth season firmly entrenched as the centerpiece of the Eagles offense, but is still trying to recapture his MVP-caliber form from 2017. The good news is Wentz played all 16 games last year, and enjoyed his first 4,000-yard passing season. The bad news is Wentz got hurt in his first-ever playoff start. Philadelphia has won four playoff games, including a Super Bowl, in Wentz tenure, but he's had no part in any of those victories. Bad luck has played a role in his litany of injuries, but his reckless aggression, particularly as a runner, has also factored. With an offensive line in flux, and a rebuilt receiving corps, expecting Wentz to play at an elite level is unfair. But if rookies Jalen Reagor, Quez Watkins, John Hightower, and veteran Marquise Goodwin can gel, Wentz can contend for another deep playoff run. As a fantasy asset, Wentz ranks 16th in points per game over his four seasons, but has had individual seasons of high-end QB1 value. He's the perfect QB2 with QB1 upside, but it's likely others will pay up for him on draft day. (May 5)

Eagles | Carson Wentz enjoying rare success early in career (Sun Jul 5, 05:46 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's 32 wins are the 15th-most by a quarterback in his first four seasons, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank.

Our View: Wentz is enjoying success but the team would like to make another Super Bowl run. They've upgraded the weapons around Wentz this offseason, particularly at the wide receiver position, and we'll see if that helps get the team back to a deep postseason run.
