If you are interested in quarterbacks who are tearing the league apart, then this fantasy football Carson Wentz player profile will leave your ACL’s shredded. As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts. When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper. Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players.
When looking at my player profiles, It is important to note that I think quarterback play is replaceable for low-end QB1’s. So when I evaluate quarterback prospects, I am looking for top three potential This will skew my perspective and analysis. Because I am gambling on upside, I tend to draft two quarterbacks and the quarterbacks I draft tend to be younger.

Fantasy Football Carson Wentz Stats:
Fantasy Football Carson Wentz Overview: Carson Wentz was a fantasy force last year, putting up 21.8 points per game. Then, in December, he tore his ACL. While there is no doubt about his talent, there are surprisingly few people questioning his current ADP, which is crazy to me. He is less than a year removed from major reconstructive knee surgery. Reconstructive ACL surgery generally requires a 9 to 12 month recovery period. That means, if he is lucky, Wentz will have recovered just in time to start the NFL season. But how many reps will Wentz have gotten in at quarterback before he sees the field?
Fantasy Football Carson Wentz Strategy: My strategy with Carson Wentz is that I’m not drafting him unless he drops significantly in value. At his current ADP, you could draft Marvin Jones, Greg Olsen or Corey Davis. If you wanted a quarterback, you could pick up Cam Newton or Drew Brees. Do you know what they all have that Carson Wentz does not? Knees that work right now. Even if Wentz’s ADP does drop significantly, I still won’t draft him. Because the only way his ADP is dropping is if there has been a major setback in his recovery. I am a big Carson Wentz fan. I own shares of him in all my dynasty leagues, but I am not touching him in redraft this year.
Editor’s note: This opinion is subject to change if he actually plays in the preseason and shows he has functional knees. I just need to see it first. I’m not an idiot. Of course I’ll draft him if he has knees. They don’t even have to be his knees. The man is really good at football.
Ceiling: If you are lucky, he pulls an Adrian Peterson and doubles down on his amazing 2017 season, shattering NFL passing records.
Floor: He misses most of the year recovering from major knee surgery, like most people who have major knee surgery have to do.
