Carson Wentz isn't a factor in 1QB leagues as our #25 QB. His role as the starter in Washington makes him worth owning in 2QB leagues, even if you're not starting him in fantasy. Wentz is projected to earn 35.2 of his 253 fantasy points by rushing. While that's a nice bonus, it isn't a major focus of his gameplan. Projected for 11.6 interceptions compared to 22.4 passing TDs, he doesn't carry much interception risk.

Brian Robinson Jr. might be gone before you can draft him at his ECR of 181, due to an ADP of 136. Raheem Mostert (ADP 137, ECR 131) or Khalil Herbert (ADP 138, ECR 134) might be a better value. At a projected workload of 9.4 touches per game (8.4 carries and 1.0 receptions), Robinson is a player you won't want to start if you can avoid it. He has some competition on Washington' depth chart, where he trails both Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic. The Washington have the 17th-best running back schedule.

The market has Antonio Gibson correctly valued at an ADP of 58, compared to an overall ECR of 65.
