Incoming Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz was not a trade target for the New England Patriots, according to a source. The Colts have agreed to acquire Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: The Patriots likely will have a new quarterback next season, but it is not known if they will add a quarterback in a trade, free agency or the NFL Draft. The Patriots do not have a great group of pass catchers, so their starting quarterback likely will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was traded to the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Feb. 18, in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-round pick. If Wentz's playtime is 75 percent or better next season, the second-rounder becomes a first-round pick. It would also become a first-rounder if Wentz plays at least 70 percent and the Colts make the playoffs.

Huddle Up: Wentz will land with a playoff-ready roster and will have a great offensive line in front of him. This setup gives him as good of a chance as any to return to QB1 form in fantasy.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is not receiving trade interest from the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The Broncos have Drew Lock as their starter but likely will look for an upgrade at the position during the offseason. Lock played well at times in 2020 but would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts next season.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is being shopped to other teams, but the Eagles are not moving on their asking price and are not receiving the offers they are looking for from teams, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears are believed to be the frontrunners for Wentz, but he is still part of the Eagles at this point. There is a good chance that he will be traded at some point this offseason, which will make Jalen Hurts the starter for the Eagles. Both Wentz and Hurts probably will be No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks in 2021.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz hasn't yet been traded because the team is remaining firm in its asking price and potential trade partners have remained 'disciplined' in negotiations, according to a person with knowledge of the trade talks Tuesday, Feb. 9. Another source said the Eagles 'don't want to give (Wentz) up for much less than' what the Detroit Lions received for QB Matthew Stafford.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has not been the focal point of any recent trade inquiries from the Washington Football Team, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.
Huddle Up: Even though Philadelphia traded Donovan McNabb to Washington years ago, intra-division trades are incredibly rare - especially when it involves a younger quarterback. It's also possible Washington doesn't see Wentz as much of an upgrade over what it might be able to acquire in the draft, especially if it costs multiple first-rounders as has been reported in some places.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz may be traded in the next day or two, according to a source. The Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts are believed to be the frontrunners for Wentz with an unidentified team also in the mix.
Huddle Up: Wentz lost his starting job to Jalen Hurts and likely will be playing with a new team next season. Hurts probably is the leading candidate to start for the Eagles next season but may need to compete for the starting job during camp. Wentz has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on where he ends up, while Hurts can be at least a No. 2 quarterback.
