Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that left tackle Jason Peters (knee) is "week-to-week." Peters, 37, injured his knee in the Week 6 loss to the Vikings. Rookie first-rounder Andre Dillard will likely slide into the starting lineup and protect quarterback Carson Wentz's blind side, beginning on Sunday night in Week 7 against the Cowboys in a big divisional tilt. The move to Dillard might not necessarily be a downgrade, but it's something to watch moving forward.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will have a tough matchup in a Week 7 battle for first place in Dallas. The Eagles hit the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys, a team that has done well in limiting opposing passing games. Wentz will still be ranked as a QB1, but he's as close to the QB1/2 border as he's been so far this season for this one. He may still be without DeSean Jackson (abdomen), and the Eagles passing game has been very one-dimensional without him. Wentz is still a startable option, but fantasy owners should temper expectations this week.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was solid despite an Eagles loss in Week 6. He threw for 306 yards, completing 26 of his 40 pass attempts. Wentz ended up with two touchdowns and threw an interception. It was the first 300 yard game since Week 1 for the Eagles quarterback, who matched up with Miles Sanders and Alshon Jeffery for his two scores. Wentz also added 23 yards on the ground, on two rushing attempts. He's a back-end QB1 and should a solid option next week against the Cowboys.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz went 26-for-40 for 306 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He also rushed for 23 yards on two carries.
Fantasy Spin: Wentz posted his first 300-yard game of the season against the Vikings and has thrown 12 touchdowns in six games this season. He will be facing a solid Dallas Cowboys defense next week but can still be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Eagles' QB Carson Wentz passed for 306 yards on 26-of-40 with two touchdowns in Sunday's loss in Minnesota.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will face off against a tough Minnesota Vikings Defense in Week 6. Wentz underwhelmed in Week 5 mostly because the running game was working so well that he wasn't needed. Still, his fantasy owners ended up with just one touchdown and 189 yards on just 17 completed passes. Wentz will likely need to throw more in Week 6, so he does carry a decent ceiling, but the tough Vikings defense makes him a lower-tier QB1 this week.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 17-of-29 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 5 against the New York Jets while running for five yards.
Fantasy Spin: Wentz didn't do much for his fantasy owners, as the Eagles actually posted 14 of their 31 points thanks to the defense. You had to figure it was going to be a blowout, with not a lot of passing anyway. He faces a difficult matchup on the road in Week 6 in Minnesota.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz didn't have to do much in Week 5. With the defense absolutely dominating the New York Jets "offense" in this one, Wentz wasn't asked to do a lot. He ended up completing 17 of his 29 passes for 189 yards and one touchdown. His score was on an 11-yard pass to his tight end, Zach Ertz. Wentz could likely have had a bigger game if he'd needed to, but the Eagles were nursing a lead almost from the kickoff. The Eagles travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings next week.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is a strong fantasy option in Week 5. The Eagles will take on the New York Jets at home and should have little trouble moving the ball against them. Wentz is coming off a three-touchdown performance against a strong Green Bay Packers Defense, and could have a similar or even better game this week. He's an easy QB1 and will be ranked somewhere in the QB6-8 range overall.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 16 of 27 passes for 160 yards and three touchdowns on Thursday, Sept. 26, against the Green Bay Packers. He added 13 yards on six carries.
Fantasy Spin: With the running game carrying the day, Wentz was content to throw high-percentage passes, none of which covered more than 20 yards. His three TDs salvaged his fantasy value, though, and with the extra rest the team may be ready to welcome back DeSean Jackson in Week 5.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz tossed three touchdowns on Thursday night. Otherwise, he wasn't great. He completed 16 of his 27 pass attempts for just 160 yards. Wentz's first touchdown pass was a six-yard strike to Alshon Jeffery. His second was a three-yard toss to Dallas Goedert, and his final score came on a 20-yard catch and run by Jordan Howard. Wentz added 13 yards on the ground on six carries. His fantasy performance was saved by the three touchdowns, but Wentz didn't look great for most of the night. Still, he should be getting wide receiver DeSean Jackson (abdomen) back soon, and Alshon Jeffery (calf) should be healthier for the next Eagles game. Wentz remains a QB1.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is just an okay option as a fantasy starter in Week 4. Wentz was blamed for several things that were not realistically his fault in Week 3, but those same things (like blatant drops and careless fumbles from his skill players) could resurface in Week 4 against the Packers. Playing on a short week, Wentz will get wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (calf) back, but will still be without DeSean Jackson (abdomen). With the Thursday Night Football stigma thrown on top of everything else, Wentz is on the QB1/2 turn this week despite usually being solidly among the QB1 ranks.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 19 of his 36 pass attempts for 259 yards and two touchdowns and rushed four times for 33 yards in a 27-24 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 3.
Fantasy Spin: Wentz has completed under 60 percent of his passes in back-to-back weeks, but he has delivered multiple touchdowns in every game this year. With the Eagles dealing with a lot of injuries, he's a low-end QB1 candidate.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was solid in Sunday's Week 3 loss, tossing two touchdowns. He completed 19 of his 36 passes for 259 yards. He added 33 yards on four carries as well. Wentz's touchdowns came on a 20-yard pass and a two-yard pass, both to wide receiver Nelson Agholor. Even without his top two wide receivers, Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) in the game, Wentz was still able to move the offense for most of the game.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz likely won't be quite as strong a fantasy option as usual against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. Wentz watched both of his top wide receivers, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery, leave the game in Week 2 with injuries. Both are officially questionable for Week 3, but most beat writers are expecting the two wide receivers to miss at least one game. Wentz will still have tight end Zach Ertz to throw to, but his top wide receiver will be drop-machine Nelson Agholor. Wentz is still a QB1 for Week 3, but he's on the lower 10-12 range instead of his usual 4-6.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 25 of 43 passes for 231 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Sept. 15. Wentz also ran for a touchdown.
Fantasy Spin: Wentz was dealing with a skeleton crew on offense after injuries knocked several of his top weapons out of action. Wentz even came off the field for a bit and was replaced by Josh McCown. Given all that, and the fact that Nelson Agholor dropped a possible long touchdown, Wentz played a pretty respectable game. He remains a QB1, though do keep an eye on those injuries.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz found a way to make two touchdowns happen on Sunday night despite losing his two top receivers to injuries. With DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery both leaving due to injuries in the first half, Wentz was left with a preseason-like supporting cast for most of the game. Still, he threw for 231 yards, completing 25 of his 43 passes. His touchdown through the air was on a four-yard pass to Nelson Agholor. His other touchdown was on a one-yard QB sneak. Wentz missed some time due to an injury as well, but he was able to return shortly afterwards. Despite coming up short in the end, Wentz showed an immense amount of talent in this game, but his fantasy outlook would still take a hit if his two top wide receivers are not able to return next week.
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (concussion) went to the medical tent to be evaluated for concussion. He passed the test and re-entered the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons late in the second quarter.
Fantasy Spin: It's been a tough first half for Wentz and the Eagles, as he took a shot to the ribs, and apparently banged his head. He is also without Alshon Jeffery, Desean Jackson has been in and out, and Nelson Agholor and Dallas Goedert have also departed. Ouch.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (ribs) left the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons due to an apparent rib injury. He took a shot to the mid-section from the helmet of a defender. Initially he stayed in the game, but then he left for the medical tent late in the second quarter, replaced by QB Josh McCown.
Fantasy Spin: It has been an odyssey for the Eagles in the first half, as Alshon Jeffrey is on the sidelines, Desean Jackson has been in and out and now their field general is sidelined. Center Jason Kelce even left the game briefly. More on Wentz when we know it.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is a top-five quarterback option in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons Defense poses no threat to Wentz, who made use of his new receiving weapon, DeSean Jackson, in Week 1. Wentz and Jackson connected for two long touchdowns and the duo are a threat to do that on any given pass play. Jackson will also open up the field for shorter passes to Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz. This is an offense that shouldn't struggle to move the ball and to put up points, making Wentz an every-week QB1 option with top-five weeks against weak defenses like Atlanta's.
