Moved up into the QB2 range. He'll be a nice late round QB option in 2021 drafts.

He was a 63.7% passer, that averaged 253 yards per game, with 100 total TDs in 56 games coming into 2020. In which he still had 21 total TDs in 12 games.
Now he enters an offense that Rivers went 4169, 24 and 11 in 2020 after he had 20 INTs in 2019. (@DWZMemphis)

The Eagles somehow made even more of a mess of the Carson Wentz situation by trading him for pennies on the dollar to Indy. Philly's loss is the Colts' gain as Frank Reich gains a QB with multiple quality seasons and one clanger on his resume. While not a clear step up from Phillip Rivers, his rushing upside makes him more of a fantasy asset. He's far from guaranteed to hold the role for a number of years making him a risky dynasty choice however he's the kind of gamble that could be worth taking.

Wentz now finds himself a member of the Indianapolis Colts after being traded away from the Philadelphia Eagles. This is good news for Wentz's Dynasty stock as he reunites with Frank Reich, the Offensive Coordinator that he had success under in Philadelphia previously. It's still a gamble whether or not Wentz can get back to the MVP-level play we've seen from him before, but the fact that the Colts went out and purposely acquired him tells you that they think they can fix him. Wentz moves back to a low-end Dynasty QB1 for the time being in my rankings.
