Eagles VP Howie Roseman declined to give a timetable on Carson Wentz’s return, but sources close to the quarterback said that he is expected to be healthy by the start of workouts in mid-April.
Since the beginning of the 2017 season, Wentz has averaged 20.1 fantasy points per game, which is solid QB1 production. His 2018 production is considered a disappointment, but if we ignore his three-interception debacle in New Orleans, he averaged 19.0 fantasy points in the remaining 10 games, which is about what Philip Rivers scored as 2018's No. 13 fantasy quarterback. He had the third-highest per game average through 13 games in 2017, so he has proven top five upside. If he's fully healthy for OTAs, his ADP should rise significantly this offseason. Right now, he's an excellent late-round pick in the double-digit rounds.
PHI QB Carson Wentz - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14 at Dallas Cowboys
The Eagles head to Dallas for a pivotal division match-up. Philadelphia has an implied team total of just 20.25 points, in the bottom third for Week 14 against a strong Cowboys defense. Dallas ranks around league average in aFPA to QBs. Carson Wentz is averaging 18.7 fantasy points in his last three games against Dallas, but anything under 19 makes it tough to reach QB1 status with this season's inflated statistics at the position. Wentz should post decent numbers but not approach elite production due to game pace and the implied team total.
