Wentz may be without Alshon and Agholor, but what matters more is that he has 45 pass attempts per game over the last month. With a solid matchup this weekend in Washington, he is a strong start and should pile up the yards with multiple TDs.

RT Lane Johnson (ankle) is out for the team's Week 15 matchup against the Redskins. Johnson's absence is bad news for the entire Eagles offense. Overall, PFF graded the Eagles' starting right tackle as their No. 2 overall offensive tackle among 85 qualified players. Only Bills-Steelers (36.5) has a lower game total than Eagles-Redskins (39).

He's not particularly in a great place right now, but neither are his receivers, as he walked into last week's game with just three active receivers, then lost Alshon Jeffery early in the game. He does have five touchdown passes over the last two weeks and has scored at least 19.9 fantasy points in each of them. While those games were against the Dolphins and Giants, his next matchup is against the team he had his best game of the year. Granted, he had both Jeffery and DeSean Jackson the first time they played the Redskins, but still. They're a defense that kind of plays into the Eagles' strength, which is up the middle of the field and through the tight ends. They've allowed a 72.5 percent completion-rate to tight ends this year, so look for Wentz to find his talented duo quite often. The best way to describe the Redskins as a defense is inconsistent. We've watched them allow three-plus touchdowns to guys like Sam Darnold, Kyle Allen, Wentz, Tom Brady, and Mitch Trubisky, but have also watched them hold Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins, and Jimmy Garoppolo to one or zero touchdowns. Their pressure-rate is bottom-10 in the league, but they've generated a sack on 8.7 percent of drop backs which ranks No. 5 in the league. Everything about them just screams 'guessing game' for what you're getting. Knowing Wentz has posted 306/2 and 313/3 the last two times he's played the divisional rival, we should expect a solid performance, but at what point do all these losses at wide receiver impact our ability to start him? Consider him a high-end QB2 this week.

Wentz has a great matchup against Washington's 20th ranked fantasy quarterback defense. Unfortunately, he has no healthy receivers right now and the Eagles offense is struggling. Wentz is a QB2 on the road this week.

Carson Wentz turned in another 20-point effort, but he is again shorthanded with his receiving crew. The matchup is alright and he is a low end QB1 if Agholor is active, but it's tough to value him in the top-12 if his top WRs are Ward and JJAW. Watch the practice report on Agholor, but Wentz is still serviceable this week either way, in a must-win game versus a weak opponent.
