Week 3 Rankings
Carson Wentz Note

It's been a rough start for Wentz in 2020. He's completed just 58.8 percent of his passes and has twice as many interceptions (4) as he does touchdowns (2). The offensive line is clearly an issue for this offense, as they want to stretch the field. It surely won't help if the Bengals could get defensive tackle Geno Atkins back in Week 3, but if not, Wentz may be able to get back on track. The Bengals have generated a sack on just 3.6 percent of dropbacks this year, which is among the lowest in the NFL. Do the Eagles take advantage of that, or the fact that the Bengals have allowed a league-high 358 rushing yards to running backs through two weeks? Dating back to last year, the Bengals have faced just three quarterbacks who've thrown more than 33 pass attempts. Most don't need to throw a whole lot because they've been efficient. 14-of-18 quarterbacks have averaged at least 7.2 yards per attempt against them, including 9.5 or more yards per attempt to eight of them. Wentz is clearly struggling, but this matchup could be a get-right spot for the entire offense. You shouldn't expect him to finish as a top-five quarterback with limited attempts, but a high-end QB2? Sure. *Update* Now that we learned Jalen Reagor is out for an extended time, Wentz moves down a few spots in the rankings. While he should still be able to post high-end QB2 numbers, there is some hesitance with how he's played this year.
