Carson Wentz struggles in Commanders' Week 3 loss

Carson Wentz completed 25 of his 43 pass attempts for 211 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He also lost a fumble and rushed three times for 22 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz was constantly pressured by his former team, and couldn't get anything going for most of the game. Wentz was sacked nine times and failed to throw a TD after throwing for seven in the first two weeks. Next up for Wentz and the Commanders is a date with the Cowboys in Dallas in Week 4, Wentz should be considered a low-end streaming in that divisional matchup.

Carson Wentz posts another solid performance in Week 2

Carson Wentz completed 30 of his 46 pass attempts for 337 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He added 23 yards on the ground as well.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz and the Commanders came out of the gates extremely slowly, but the offense got going in the second half and Wentz delivered his second straight game with at least three TD passes. Wentz has been inconsistent in both games, but from a fantasy football standpoint has been extremely solid. Up next for the Commanders signal-caller is his first career matchup against Philadelphia, the franchise that drafted him second overall in the 2016 draft. While he will likely downplay the matchup, there is no doubt Wentz would love to put up numbers against his former team. Consider him a fine streaming option in deeper leagues.

Carson Wentz delivers roller-coaster performance in Week 1 win

Carson Wentz completed 27 of his 41 pass attempts for 313 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. Wentz also added 12 rushing yards on six carries.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz delivered from a fantasy standpoint, but he was somewhat inconsistent in his Commanders' debut. He found all three Commanders' starting receivers for touchdowns, including two to rookie Jahan Dotson. Wentz throwing the ball 41 times shows that sheer volume could vault him into fantasy relevancy, but he will not throw four TD passes most weeks. Wentz should be considered a solid streaming option in Week 2 against a Lions team that allowed the Eagles offense to score four touchdowns on Sunday.

Caron Wentz sits out with starters in preseason finale

Carson Wentz sat out Saturday in the Commanders' preseason loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz will be in his third different offensive system in as many seasons, as he joins Scott Turner's run and gun scheme. Getting the ball out of his hands quickly will be an adjustment for Wentz, as he has had a tendency to do the opposite to a fault. Wentz's accuracy issues have been at the forefront of the criticism surrounding the former MVP candidate. That version of Wentz has not returned since his torn ACL late in the 2017 season. Wentz has been, at best, serviceable over the last few years and has succeeded only with excellent offensive line play. When fully healthy the Commanders have the type of offensive line that could allow Carson Wentz to thrive in DC. It is worth waiting and seeing how Wentz settles into his new digs before adding him to your fantasy roster in 2022.

Carson Wentz sees limited action against Kansas City

Carson Wentz posts solid stats against the Chiefs completing 6-of-9 passes for 64 yards. Wentz also took a bad sack that knocked the Commanders out of FG range, and all three of his drives finished with the team punting.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz was pretty good in limited action Saturday, but a bad decision in which he held the ball for too long forced the Commanders to punt their lone scoring chance with him under center away. Wentz has always struggled with holding the ball for too long, and while it does not show up on the stat sheet, it is something that stalls drives and makes it harder for him to produce solid fantasy performances consistently. Wentz should still be considered a low-end bye-week streaming option in 2022 for fantasy managers.
