Summary

It's hard to overstate the importance of this season on Carson Wentz' career trajectory. When healthy, he's proven capable of MVP-caliber play, although Nick Foles' Super Bowl MVP performance illustrates the quality of the roster and coaching staff in Philadelphia. Wentz has all the tools to win at the highest level but must stay healthy. He tore multiple knee ligaments in 2017 that gave way to Foles' historic run, and ended last season on the bench again; this time dealing with a back injury. Entering his fourth season and already 26 years old, and with Foles now in Jacksonville, it's imperative he produces this year to earn a long-term extension as the team's foundation. If his play regresses, or another injury concern emerges, General Manager Howie Roseman will have a tough decision next offseason. At 6-foot-5, 237 pounds, Wentz has the build to handle the rigors of the position, but he'll need to make smarter decisions as a scrambler going forward. With a deep roster and an intimate familiarity with Doug Pederson's offense, Wentz is capable of top-5 production as long as he stays upright. (May 1)

Eagles | Carson Wentz putting in work (Tue Jul 9, 06:52 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) has been putting in work rehabbing this offseason after having his last two seasons cut short by different injuries, according to OT Lane Johnson. 'I love it, every day when I go in the building, all I see is him in there before everybody else, rehabbing, doing whatever it takes.' Johnson said of Wentz. 'I just think he's really on a different mental state than he's ever been as far as training and ignoring distractions and really trying to be the best player he is. So, I just see that worker and a guy who is about to do some big things this season.'

Our View: Wentz has not played a full 16-game regular season since his rookie year in 2016. He needs to stay healthy and play like we all know he can so the Eagles can make a postseason run. If healthy, Wentz could finish the year as a top-5 fantasy quarterback. He's currently going off the board at QB8 (8.01) in 12-team fantasy leagues.
