2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
After an up and down rookie season, Carson Wentz exploded onto the fantasy football landscape in 2017 with 33 touchdowns and only seven interceptions before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams. With at least two touchdowns in 12 of his 14 games, Wentz posted the fifth highest TD% (7.5) by a quarterback in their second season in NFL history, behind Hall of Fame players Dan Marino, Kurt Warner, and Johnny Unitas. Ironically, the player with the highest TD% in their sophomore season is Nick Foles, the quarterback who took over for Wentz last season and led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl.

When you consider the fact that Sid Luckman's 7.9% TD rate is the highest in NFL history and future first ballot hall of famer Tom Brady owns a career TD rate of 5.5%, a negative regression for Wentz is likely in 2018. It should also be noted that although Wentz posted impressive touchdown numbers in 2017, his completion percentage dipped down to just over 60% from 62% as a rookie, suggesting that his success throwing touchdowns at a high rate is an outlier.

Questions surrounding his ability to return to form from his severe knee injury also hurts the draft value of Wentz heading into 2018. As a quarterback who excels at moving both inside and outside the pocket, the inability to evade would-be tacklers and extending plays could hurt Wentz's overall value in 2018. However, Wentz is surrounded by a collection of talented wide receivers and running backs, and Doug Pederson's stellar offensive scheme should help Wentz finish as a top 12 QB this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Carson Wentz has fractured vertebra in back
No surgery required; status for rest of 2018 uncertain
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 13, 7:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
A recent CT scan on Carson Wentz’s back revealed a fractured vertebra that, if allowed time to rest, would fully heal without further expected issues, sources tell ESPN. There will be a continued evaluation to determine if continuing to play this year will make injury worse. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Wentz is not expected to play in Week 15 versus the Rams and will probably be ruled out for the remainder of the season in the likely event the Eagles lose in Los Angeles as it would pretty much seal their playoff fate. Nick Foles was mostly atrocious in two starts earlier this season, throwing for one touchdown and one interception against the Falcons and Bucs. Downgrade all Eagles - including Zach Ertz - and fire up the Rams D/ST wherever possible.


Injury Carson Wentz not expected to play in Week 15
Nick Foles to start
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 12, 11:25 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles QB Carson Wentz, dealing with a back issue, is not expected to play this week, sources say. Depending on the result, given the time of year, Wentz may not play again in 2018. The team is still gathering info on his health. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Wentz missed practice Wednesday and it appears will sit against the Rams this week. Nick Foles is expected to start and hasn't played since Week 2 against the Bucs when he posted a 35-48, 334-1-0 line. Foles struggled in Week 1 against the Falcons in his other start this season. The Rams have allowed the 13th most fantasy points to quarterbacks.


Golden Tate acquired by Eagles
Lions get 3rd round pick from Philly
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 30, 2:00 pm

Detroit Lions
Adam Schefter on Twitter: "Detroit is trading WR Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round pick, per source." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Well, it's been a busy day for trades so far and since Schefty didn't get to break the DeMaryius news, he's leading the charge on the Tate deal. This will hurt Nelson Agholor's value and enhance the value of Carson Wentz going forward. Without much of a big-name running game, the Eagles must have felt they need to bolster their receiving corps and add to their current group of Alshon Jeffrey, Agholor and Jordan Matthews. Perhaps Tate will see more of a slot role, splitting snaps on the outside with Matthews when Agholor fills that spot.
