Eagles QB Carson Wentz still says it will be 'close' on decision to start Week 1

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz returned to 11-on-11 drills for the first time since July 28, and just the second time overall since he suffered a torn ACL in December.

Monday, Wentz spoke to the media for the first time since his return.

"Really same as last week, it’s gonna be close. Nothing’s really changed from last week other than the 11 on 11 practice. The final hurdle, which won’t be my decision, will be being cleared for contact," Wentz said.

Fantasy Impact:

Wentz said he won't play in Week 3 of the preseason and didn't commit to Week 4, which also seems unlikely. It does seem the team is pretty happy with what they have seen from Wentz so far in camp. The writer did say Wentz looks to be on track for Week 1, but he wouldn't be shocked if he's delayed until Week 2.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Carson Wentz was QB2 in total points and QB3 in points per game before tearing his ACL in Week 14 last season. His upside is immense—an elite fantasy quarterback capable of putting up MVP numbers in one of the best offenses in the league.

Fantasy Downside

Wentz is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered late last season. It's fair to question whether Wentz will be healthy Week 1, as he is still slowly being incorporated into 11-on-11 drills in practice and probably won't play in the preseason.

2018 Bottom Line

Wentz has an ADP in the sixth round. If he's fully cleared for Week 1, an argument can be made for that price, but it's priced closer to his ceiling than his floor. Wentz will need to maintain elite fantasy numbers to make the price worth it.
