Carson Wentz News
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and wide receiver DeSean Jackson have had a great connection and good timing throughout the offseason program. Head coach Doug Pederson said that Jackson spent the entire offseason in Philadelphia working with Wentz, and their chemistry is showing through. Jackson, 32, was a bust in his final year in Tampa with 41 catches for 774 yards and four touchdowns, but he's still very fast and averaged 18.9 yards per catch. He's boom or bust as a deep threat, but D-Jax will still have appeal in standard-scoring leagues in a very potent offense. However, his per-game catches will likely fluctuate with tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert and receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor gobbling up targets.
The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to a four-year contract extension with quarterback Carson Wentz on Thursday that will take him through the 2024 season. Although Wentz has suffered season-ending injuries each of the last two years, the Eagles know he's their long-term QB of the future and wanted to lock him down. Despite his injuries, Wentz is immensely talented and can play at an MVP level when he's healthy. He's a risk/reward QB1 in fantasy, but we feel that the risk is worth it after he's dealt with two pretty fluky injuries the last two seasons. There are plenty of weapons around Wentz to make him successful for years to come.
The Philadelphia Eagles and head coach Doug Pederson are thrilled with the progress quarterback Carson Wentz has made this offseason and are expecting big things from him in 2019. Wentz has finished both of the last two seasons on Injured Reserve, which makes fantasy owners hesitant to take on that injury risk with him as a high-end QB1. When healthy, though, Wentz has shown MVP traits under center and has put up big-time numbers, so he's worth the risk as a low-end QB1 with upside. There are still plenty of weapons at Wentz's disposal in this offense as well.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (back) worked out without limitations on Tuesday on the first day of organized team activities. He also shed a protective knee brace that he wore last season after tearing his ACL in 2017. Wentz has full confidence in his body and doesn't plan on wearing the brace during the season. He is feeling really good, and it helps that he's working out with the team now after missing a good part of the 2018 offseason while recovering from knee procedures. Fantasy owners may shy away from Wentz because of season-ending injuries the last two years, but he's been a strong QB1 when healthy.
The Philadelphia Eagles could lock quarterback Carson Wentz up to a big long-term extension before training camp. "My belief is that deal will get done at some point this offseason," ESPN's Adam Schefter said. Executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said in March that "having Carson here long term is our goal" and the organization will "work toward that." CEO Jeffrey Lurie said he would "absolutely" be comfortable extending Wentz despite the fact he's coming off two serious injuries the last two years. It signals that the Eagles don't think the stress fracture in Wentz's back is a long-term concern. A deal with Wentz could net him around $30 million per season.
