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.
Huddle Up: 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.

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.
Huddle Up: 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 completed 28 of his 39 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns in a 32-27 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 1.
Huddle Up: We have seen Wentz play at an MVP level in the past, and he has the weapons around him to put up big numbers all year. He should be a weekly QB1 option as long as he can stay healthy.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is making quicker decisions this season, according to head coach Doug Pederson. 'It's part of the progression of him and his growth as a young quarterback right now,' Pederson said. 'He's getting to the line of scrimmage, he's seeing things fast, he's redirecting protection, going through his progressions, the ball is coming out of his hand quicker.'
Huddle Up: Wentz has missed time in each of the last two seasons with injuries, but he was on his way to MVP honors in 2017. At the helm of an offense loaded with weapons, Wentz is a QB1 option despite the injury history.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) has been putting in work rehabbing this offseason after having his last two seasons cut short by different injuries, according to OT Lane Johnson. 'I love it, every day when I go in the building, all I see is him in there before everybody else, rehabbing, doing whatever it takes.' Johnson said of Wentz. 'I just think he's really on a different mental state than he's ever been as far as training and ignoring distractions and really trying to be the best player he is. So, I just see that worker and a guy who is about to do some big things this season.'
Huddle Up: Wentz is currently being drafted as the ninth quarterback off the board. He is being slightly discounted due to the perceived injury risk, but he has immense upside in his current spot.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is 'locked in potentially to a return to MVP form,' according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Head coach Doug Pederson echoed similar sentiments with reporters recently as well.
Huddle Up: Wentz missed five games last season due to a back injury and has been sidelined for eight total since playing all 16 as a rookie in 2016. With that said, it's hard to ignore the weapons he has at his disposal - Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Zach Ertz, among several others - or the solid offensive line he has protecting him. If he can play a full season again, it is quite possible Wentz can produce at a high-end fantasy QB1 level.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has no limitations in organized team activities, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Wentz a year-and-a-half removed from a torn ACL that wrecked an MVP season. This will be a prove-it year to show that peak wasn't smoke and mirrors. He's a high-end option at the position with top-two upside and a mediocre floor.
