News: 2 days agoWentz completed 16 of 22 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.
Spin: Wentz put together a decent performance in a game that saw the Colts dominate on the ground, racking up 238 rushing yards and three scores. The signal-caller still got involved in the scoring, though, throwing a two-yard touchdown to Ashton Dulin just before halftime. After having three turnovers last week, Wentz also protected the ball well Sunday, sending him into the bye week on a good note.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Wentz is the Colts' new starter after the team acquired him from the Eagles during the offseason. The 2016 second overall pick is coming off a rough 2020 in which he accounted for 21 TDs, 15 INTs, 10 fumbles and career-worst marks in completion rate (57%), YPA (6.0) and off-target rate (league-worst 23%). Wentz had his best NFL season with Colts' coach Frank Reich when both were in Philly in 2017, but that was four seasons ago. Wentz's rough 2020 play, an unproven/underwhelming group of targets and a run-heavy Colts' scheme are likely to limit his fantasy output. The 28-year-old is questionable for Week 1 and should only be drafted in superflex leagues.
