Even in defeat yesterday in Kansas City, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz’s star is rising in fantasy world!
Wentz followed up his fifth-best-among-quarterbacks 18.9 of Week 1 with a career-high 24.8 points in yesterday’s 27-20 defeat.
He also has back-to-back 300-yard passing efforts, which he only accomplished once during his rookie season in 2016 (Weeks 13-14).
Wentz faces his toughest test yet in Week 3, battling the New York Giants’ defense, but he has emerged as a clear weekly starter in 2QB formats, and he’s developing into one of the stronger streaming choices in standard leagues — although you’ll probably want to avoid that matchup next week in those.
