Player Outlook
Wentz is on his third team in as many seasons, which is typically not a good thing, but Wentz's history does offer some Fantasy appeal in Superflex and two-QB leagues. Getting a shot to pilot the Commanders offense is probably his last chance to be a starter in the NFL. He'll hope to develop consistency for the whole season rather than start hot and then flame out for Fantasy managers as he's done the past two years. And although Washington will provide him with an underrated receiving corps, it's been a long time since the franchise has delivered a superior Fantasy quarterback. Wentz hasn't averaged north of 20 Fantasy points since 2018, and he barely did it then. Expect the 29-year-old to go undrafted in regular seasonal drafts, but to get picked after Round 8 in Superflex leagues and Round 7 in two-QB formats.

  • Commanders' Carson Wentz: Extended run in preseason opener

    Wentz completed 10 of 13 pass attempts for 74 yards in Saturday's 23-21 preseason loss to the Panthers. Wentz led three offensive possessions, with the final one ending in a touchdown. He connected with Terry McLaurin and J.D. McKissic for gains of 16 and 15 yards on the scoring drive and competently managed the offense. Wentz also targeted rookie Jahan Dotson, though the pass fell incomplete. Perhaps most importantly, Wentz didn't turn the ball over as he prepares to be the Commanders' Week 1 starter.

  • Commanders' Carson Wentz: Should play Saturday

    Wentz and other Washington starters are scheduled for about 15-20 plays in Saturday's preseason opener against Carolina, Michael Phillips of Richmond.com reports. It'll be Wentz's first chance to connect with wideouts Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson and Curtis Samuel in a game setting, assuming all three play. Rivera already said Samuel would, and added later that he expects the starters to stay on for about 15-20 snaps.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: GM declines to commit to 2022 starter

    While speaking during his season-ending news conference, GM Chris Ballard fell short of committing to Wentz as the Colts' starting QB next season, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports. "When we made the decision, after Philip [Rivers] retired ... to make a move on Carson, at the time of the decision we felt good about it and I still don't regret the decision at the time," Ballard noted Thursday. "Sitting here today ... I won't make a comment on who is going to be here next year and who is not going to be here next year. That's not fair to any player." Meanwhile, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star previously relayed that coach Frank Reich also declined to discuss the 2022 standing of Wentz or any other player on the team's roster, but given the mixed returns in the signal-caller's first season with Indianapolis, it's not too surprising that endorsements from the franchise's GM and coach didn't arrive in the wake of a disappointing loss in Week 18 that eliminated the Colts from playoff contention. Per Stephen Holder of The Athletic, Wentz is under contract through 2024, but he points out that the key aspect of the deal is that next season is the final year with guaranteed money. In any case, there figures to continue to be speculation regarding Wentz' future with the team in the coming months, but contract deadlines, free agency and the NFL Draft remain future moving parts that will drive the narrative.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Struggles in must-win game

    Wentz completed 17 of 29 passes for 185 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 26-11 loss to the Jaguars. He added three rushes for 17 yards. Wentz had a disastrous performance in a must-win game, as he also lost a fumble for two total turnovers. His 6.4 yards per attempt is a bleak enough mark standing alone, but it becomes even worse when considering that 85 of his 185 passing yards came on the Colts' final offensive possession and with the team down 26-3. Wentz stayed away from mistakes for much of the season -- he threw only seven interceptions and lost four fumbles -- though he also surpassed 300 yards in a contest only twice.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Uninspiring effort in loss

    Wentz completed 16 of 27 passes for 148 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Raiders. He added three carries for 10 yards. The Colts clearly tried to keep the ball out of the air, as they tallied 26 rushing attempts as opposed to Wentz's 27 pass attempts. Even when he took to the air, Wentz was largely uninspiring as he averaged only 5.5 yards per attempt. His touchdown was fortunate, as he threw a ball up for grabs that bounced off two defenders only to land in the arms of T.Y. Hilton for a 45-yard score. Wentz has now been held to under 200 passing yards in five of his last seven starts heading into a Week 18 matchup against Jacksonville.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Cleared to start Sunday

    Head coach Frank Reich confirmed Wentz (illness) has cleared the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocols and is slated to start Sunday's game against the Raiders. Wentz was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, but he still needed to gain medical clearance to be available Sunday. He's been able to do just that, and despite having not practiced all week, Wentz was able to stay prepared to start while in isolation and shouldn't face any limitations Week 17. Sam Ehlinger is set to serve as Wentz's backup.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Clears protocols, will start Sunday

    Wentz (illness) will be available to start after receiving full clearance from a medical professional earlier in the day, Colts head coach Frank Reich told Stacey Dales of NFL Network. Though Wentz was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday when first eligible following a five-day isolation period, the quarterback hadn't fully cleared all of the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocols. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Wentz still required a check early Sunday to ensure he wasn't dealing with any lingering symptoms of the virus, and the quarterback was able to pass the final test. Though he didn't take part in any of the Colts' three official practices this week while on the list, Wentz was able to stay up to speed with the game plan while in isolation and shouldn't face any restrictions Sunday. Sam Ehlinger will serve as his backup after taking reps with the first-team offense Wednesday through Friday.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Goes to COVID-19 list

    Wentz (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. By all accounts, Wentz remains unvaccinated, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. If that's the case, he won't be available Sunday for a key AFC matchup with the Raiders. Wentz would yield QB duties to backup Sam Ehlinger in the event he can't play this weekend.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Tosses pair of touchdowns Saturday

    Wentz was 18-for-28 passing for 225 yards and two touchdowns and notched two carries for four yards during Saturday's 22-16 win in Arizona. Wentz isn't often asked to put up huge volume through the air in an offense that rides running back Jonathan Taylor, who put up his ninth 100-yard performance in 15 games this season. Still, Wentz managed his ninth 200-yard outing through the air and ninth contest with multiple touchdowns. Everything seemed to come up 'nine' for the Colts on Saturday, as they reached 9-6 in the standings, too. Wentz' next chance to direct the Colts offense will arrive Sunday, Jan. 2 versus the Raiders.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Poor performance in win

    Wentz completed five of 12 passes for 57 yards and a touchdown with an interception in Saturday's 27-17 win over the Patriots. He also gained 17 yards on eight carries. The evening could have been even worse for Wentz, as a couple of his incompletions could easily have become INTs, but the Colts were able to survive his shaky effort thanks to Jonathan Taylor and a special-teams score. It was by far the least productive full game of Wentz's career, and he'll likely need to do a lot more if the Colts are going to come up with a road win in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Season-low yardage total in win

    Wentz completed 11 of 20 passes for 106 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Colts' 41-15 win over the Bills on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 18 yards and committed a fumble recovered by Indianapolis. With Jonathan Taylor accounting for 185 rushing yards and five total touchdowns, there was little need for Wentz to do much through the air. His one passing score actually went to Taylor in the second quarter, but the sixth-year veteran otherwise recorded just two completions apiece to the starting wideout duo of T.Y. Hilton and Michael Pittman. Wentz now has thrown for under 200 yards in three of the last five games, but a Week 12 interconference showdown with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers is likely going to require him to be much more involved.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Lackluster showing in win

    Wentz completed 22 of 34 passes for 180 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the Colts' 23-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. He also netted minus-1 yard on four rushes. Jonathan Taylor logged over 20 carries for the first time all season, which helped lead to a reduced workload for Wentz and his fellow members of the air attack. The sixth-year signal-caller did remain free of turnovers for the second straight game, helping Indianapolis even its record at 5-5. Wentz' touchdown-less effort was his first since Week 3, something he'll look to quickly put behind him in a Week 11 road matchup against a very tough Bills defense.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Critical gaffes in OT loss

    Wentz completed 27 of 51 passes for 231 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Colts' 34-31 overtime loss to the Titans on Sunday. He also rushed three times for 11 yards and fumbled once without turning it over. Wentz came into the critical divisional clash having thrown just one interception all season, but he broke that favorable pattern with two of the more ill-timed picks he'll likely toss this year. The two turnovers came in the closing minutes of regulation and overtime, the first giving the Titans' a walk-in, go-ahead pick-six with 1:26 remaining and featuring a surprisingly careless left-handed throw from the sixth-year pro at his own two-yard line. While Wentz subsequently made up for the gaffe by leading a five-play, 75-yard drive to send the game into overtime, he doubled down on his game-changing errors with a second interception on a deep pass intended for Michael Pittman that was snagged by Kevin Byard with 5:48 remaining in the extra period. The Titans would go on to kick a game-winning field goal, leaving Wentz with a serious blemish on his overall day, including from a fantasy perspective. He and the Colts now will look to regroup quickly, as a Week 9 Thursday night home date against the Jets awaits.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Three total scores in rough weather

    Wentz completed 17 of 26 pass attempts for 150 yards and two touchdowns while rushing four times for 23 yards and another score in Sunday's 30-18 win over the 49ers. Wentz somehow wasn't credited with an interception when he shovel-passed the ball directly into Azeez Al-Shaair's arms in the second quarter, instead recording his third fumble lost of the season. Outside of that ugly play, the veteran quarterback held his own in a heavy downpour and blustering winds at Levi's Stadium. Wentz doesn't provide a ton of upside in his new digs, but he has been a surprisingly safe fantasy option with an 11:1 TD:INT ratio through seven games this season. The Colts will face a stiff test against the Titans next Sunday.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Tosses two scores in blowout win

    Wentz completed 11 of 20 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-3 win over Houston. He added one rushing yard on two attempts. Wentz opened the scoring with a 51-yard deep ball to Parris Campbell late in the first quarter and added a 28-yard touchdown to Mo Alie-Cox in the third to give the Colts a 17-3 lead, then deferred to Jonathan Taylor and the ground game as the Colts ran away with it. He has quietly amassed an efficient 9:1 TD:INT this season, including multiple touchdown passes in each of the past three games. Wentz will look to keep that streak going on the road in Week 7 against a 49ers team that will be coming out of its bye.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Tops 400 yards in loss

    Wentz completed 25 of 35 passes for 402 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 31-25 overtime loss to the Ravens. He also was sacked twice and lost a fumble. Wentz started the night with a screen pass that Jonathan Taylor took 76 yards for a touchdown, giving the Colts their first first-quarter TD all season. The signal-caller then led his team into the red zone on his second series, only to be sacked while losing a fumble in the process. To begin the third quarter, Wentz added another touchdown thanks to a remarkable contested grab by Michael Pittman that went for 42 yards. Along with his big scoring plays, Wentz made hay with intermediate and short completions, helping him rack up his most yardage yet as a Colt. Although his 400-plus yards still weren't enough to clinch a victory as the defense collapsed down the stretch against Lamar Jackson, Wentz at least approaches Week 6's favorable matchup against the Texans coming off a strong performance.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Solid effort in Week 4 win

    Wentz (ankles) completed 24 of 32 passes for 228 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Colts' 27-17 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. He also rushed five times for eight yards. Playing through twin ankle sprains for the second straight week, Wentz turned in a solid, mistake-free workmanlike effort to help the Colts garner their first win of the season. The offseason arrival got plenty of help from Jonathan Taylor (16-103-1) on the ground, and he connected with a whopping 10 different pass catchers. Wentz appeared to be moving a bit better than during a Week 3 loss to the Titans, and he's now put together a fantasy-friendly 5:1 TD:INT through four games. Wentz has still to notch his first 300-yard effort as a member of the Colts, however, a matter he'll look to rectify in a Week 5 road battle against the Ravens on Monday, Oct. 11.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Remains limited in practice

    Wentz (ankles) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. While tending to sprains of both ankles, Wentz only managed one limited practice last week before playing every snap in the Colts' loss to the Titans. Though he didn't attempt a run for the first time all the season and was inaccurate in the pocket (19-for-37 for 194 yards), Wentz appears to have come out of the game in better health. He's turned in a pair of limited practices to begin Week 4, a sign that he's on track to start again Sunday in Miami.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: No touchdowns in loss

    Wentz completed 19 of 37 passes for 194 yards in Sunday's 25-16 loss to the Titans. Wentz notably was playing with two banged-up ankles, and despite seeing All-Pro guard Quenton Nelson exit early Sunday, he was able to complete the contest. Although Wentz showed grit in doing so, he didn't make much of an impact as a passer and missed an open Michael Pittman on a would-be touchdown as well. Without a win from his first three games as a Colt, Wentz should be especially eager to taste victory Week 4 versus the Dolphins.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Expected to start Sunday

    Wentz (ankles), who is questionable on the injury report against Tennessee and will be a game-time decision, is expected to start, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Rapoport adds that Wentz is pushing to play and the Colts have contingency plans in place if he has a setback in warmups or during the game. The Colts activated Brett Hundley from the practice squad Saturday. Hundley would likely play if Wentz can't go since Hundley took the bulk of reps in practice this week over Jacob Eason when Wentz was sidelined. However, Wentz returned to practice Friday and looks set to play even though he was limited in that session.
