Carson Wentz signs massive four-year extension

The Eagles and Carson Wentz have agreed to a four-year extension.

Fantasy Impact

The terms of the deal include $128M in total salary with $107M guaranteeed, and Wentz is now under contract until at least 2024. One of the league’s best young QBs, he enjoyed an MVP-caliber run in 2017 before a torn ACL cut his season short. He played serviceably in 2018 but still wasn’t 100 percent. Now seemingly at full health and with Nick Foles off to Jacksonville, Wentz was given this extension to cement his future with the Eagles. With a stable of quality weapons around him, expect Wentz to enjoy top-10 QB production with top-5 upside this season.

Carson Wentz (back) will have no limitations at OTAs

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Carson Wentz (back) will have zero limitations at OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz was banged up all of 2018 and looks to finally be healthy. Philadelphia will reportedly still be "smart" with him at OTAs, but he's expected to be involved in the majority of all work. In 11 games last season Wentz compiled a 21/7 TD/INT ratio.

Carson Wentz (back) expected to be healthy for Eagles off-season program

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Carson Wentz (back) is expected be a full participant in the Eagles’ off-season program beginning in April.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz missed the final five games of the season with a stress fracture but has been participating in a strengthening program. Nick Foles once again shined during Wentz’s absence but Philadelphia announced this week Wentz would be their starter moving forward. Foles will be on the trade block once the new league year begins.

Carson Wentz reportedly won’t be available for playoffs

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Carson Wentz isn’t expected to be back for the playoffs should the Eagles make it.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz will also have a scan on his injured back after Week 17. Nick Foles will be the team’s quarterback for the remainder of the season, but the Eagles are then expected to move on from him over the off-season. Wentz is still viewed as the long term answer at QB.

Carson Wentz won't be placed on IR yet

Carson Wentz won't be placed on IR yet, according to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

While the team is leaving the door open for the QBs return, he's already been ruled out for Week 16. This means that he won't be relevant for fantasy purposes again until 2017 outside of potentially playoff DFS or leagues that last until Week 17. Even those scenarios aren't guaranteed as the Eagles are not a lock for the postseason and Wentz isn't guaranteed to return this year even if they advance.
