It isn't so much that the Lions are an easy matchup, but the Eagles most certainly won't be able to run versus them so expect the Eagles to air it out even with Alshon missing from the contest. Wentz is currently among the top 12 fantasy QBs for Week 3.

Wentz is banged up and is for sure missing DeSean Jackson. Many of his weapons seem to be perpetually injured, the least of which is Alshon Jeffery, whose status is also up in the air. Detroit's defense isn't scary, but the lack of offensive weapons could be a concern.

WR DeSean Jackson, WR Alshon Jeffery and TE Dallas Goedert are all questionable this week, which does hamper Wentz's fantasy value against a Lions D that has been pretty good except for the fourth quarter in Arizona. Wentz is a low-end QB1 with several playmakers banged up.
