Per Adam Schefter, Carson Wentz has been traded to the Colts for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The speculation for the last few weeks was that Wentz was headed to either Indianapolis or Chicago. While reports were that the Bears had a better offer on the table, the quarterback preferred Indianapolis. The Colts give Wentz a much better opportunity to bounce back to the near-MVP-level play we saw from the former second overall pick. Wentz landed a dream gig for a quarterback with an elite offensive line, a strong run game, and a group of talented pass-catchers. He struggled in 2020 with the Eagles, setting career-lows in completion percentage, yards per game, touchdown rate, and yards per attempt. He also set career-highs in interceptions and sacks before being benched for rookie Jalen Hurts. Hurts appears set to take the lead under center for the Eagles in 2021 now. This news will cause Wentz to fly up draft boards and make him a high-end QB2 with tremendous upside.
