Fantasy Impact:

Wentz was traded from the Eagles last month for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick, with the potential of becoming a first-round pick if Wentz either plays 75 percent of snaps or plays 70 percent while getting the Colts to the postseason. The athletic quarterback has flashed moments of brilliance earlier in his career, throwing 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions to be considered a potential 2017 league MVP before suffering a brutal knee injury late in the season. Wentz reuniting with former Eagles OC and current Colts head coach Frank Reich could be exactly what the quarterback needs to return to his former elite level of play. The Colts also have one of the best offensive lines in the league, which will buy Wentz more time to make better decisions in the pocket.
