Fantasy Football Advice
I think people forget how good Carson Wentz is. He was the clear cut MVP in 2017 before tearing his ACL, then he posted a 21/7 TD/INT rate in his 11 healthy games last season, finishing with over 300 yards or multiple scores in 8/11 weeks. He opens this season fully healthy, and is currently 4th in MVP odds. The offense also upgraded in the offseason. Not only has Alshon/Ertz/Agholor all returned...but Goedert is now set to take a step forward in his second season, the traded for DeSean Jackson (who's still an elite field stretcher), they signed Jordan Howard in FA, and they drafted both Miles Sanders and J.J. Arcega Whiteside. These are elite offensive weapons, and the Eagles have PFF's top rated offensive line. I expect the Eagles to make another Super Bowl run...and I expect Carson Wentz to be the driving force behind it.Much has been made of Brees's decrease in pass attempts...and deservingly so. From 2010-2016 he had over 625 pass attempts in every season, with 650+ in all but one. Then the Saints shifted towards a more balanced approach, giving Brees just 536 and 489 pass attempts over the last two seasons. Non coincidentally, the last two seasons have been two of the Saints better seasons as a franchise, winning the division in both seasons, and getting their season cut short just shy of the Super Bowl due to inept officiating. The Saints have been so good on both sides of the ball, that they haven't needed to get into 80 point shootouts to win. That's lead to fewer games with more than 35 pass attempts (just 4 last season), and with it less potential to lead the league in passing. When you combine that with absolutely no rushing ability (worth noting he does have 9 rushing TD's over the last two seasons...just on 150 total rushing yards) then he comes with a much lower floor than we're used to. I think Brees is a good if he falls in drafts. But I like him more as a low end QB 1 than a mid QB 1. So he often times doesn't fall far enough for me to get him.

In the 11 weeks Wentz was healthy last season, he was the QB13 thanks to a greatly diminished TD-rate (as expected). With that said, he was even more efficient than his 2017 MVP campaign so there is more upside. The concern, of course, is that Wentz is still not healed from the back injury that kept him out at the end of the season so be sure to monitor that as your fantasy draft draws near.Although Brees has now been a top 10 fantasy quarterback in 15 straight seasons, he has dipped down to QB9 and QB8 over the last to years because of a major decrease in pass attempts. His efficiency has never been better which makes him a safe and reliable option, but unfortunately, his upside is outside the top 5 QBs at this stage.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If you were to put Wentz's numbers up against the career of this decade's fantasy starters, his closest comparison would be Tony Romo. During his career, Romo posted QB1-type numbers 45 percent of the time, which is precisely what Wentz has done in his three years. Wentz hasn't offered the upside that some of the quarterbacks above him in the rankings, but he should provide high-end QB2-type production at year's end.The Saints aren't going to be the crazy pass-heavy offense they were in years past, but that doesn't mean Brees isn't usable in fantasy. After lacking upside in 2017 when he failed to post more than 22 fantasy points, he bounced back in 2018 and had six such games. The defense might hold him back from being an elite fantasy option, but he's a very safe low-end QB1 with a relatively high floor.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Wentz had some of the same consistency issues that Texans QB Deshaun Watson had returning from ACL surgery and Wentz also dealt with other injuries, causing him to miss 5 games. I think he will be a much different QB in 2019 with these injury issues hopefully behind him.Brees will be 40-years old this year, but he has shown no signs of slowing down with 3,992 yards passing, 32 passing touchdowns and 5 interceptions in 2019. Even at his age, he is still a QB1.
