Draft note
by John Paulsen
Wentz is set up for success as he joins a Colts offense that has a stellar offensive line, a great running back, and a decent (if unproven) receiving corps. He’s reuniting with Frank Reich, who was the offensive coordinator for the Eagles in 2017, when Wentz had the best season of his career–33 touchdowns, seven interceptions and 254 yards per game in 13 starts. Wentz averaged 23.0 rushing yards per game that year, and equaled that mark last season, so if he can provide that sort of rushing floor, he’ll definitely be in the streaming conversation. At just 28, Wentz is a little young to be getting his last chance to start, but that’s what this feels like. If Wentz can’t succeed in 2021, then his career is probably derailed for good.

IND QB Carson Wentz - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Houston Texans

Carson Wentz had a nice game against the Ravens last week, throwing for 402 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a narrow loss. Wentz has seven touchdowns and just one interception so far this season, and is completing 65.3% of his passes, giving him upside in good matchups.

This week, Wentz has a nice matchup against a Texans defense that ranks 25th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. He doesn’t offer enough rushing production or get enough big plays to warrant QB1 status, but we have him ranked in QB2 territory and fantasy managers needing help in 2QB or SuperFlex formats should consider him a decent fill-in option in a nice matchup.
