Wentz played his best game of the young season in Week 5, throwing for 402 yards and two touchdowns against the Ravens on Monday night and staking the Colts to a big lead that they would eventually blow. Wentz completed better than 70% of his throws for a second straight game and averaged 11.5 yards per attempt. I had my doubts about Wentz coming into the season. He looked awful last year, and though the Eagles' injury-riddled offensive line had something to do with that, Wentz played poorly by any measure. So far with the Colts, he's dealt with injuries to teammates and himself, toughing out the last couple of games on two sprained ankles, and has acquitted himself quite well. Wentz is on the verge of getting WR T.Y. Hilton back from IR, and all-pro guard Quenton Nelson is expected back soon as well, so things are looking up. Wentz checks in at QB21 in this week's rankings and is a plausible streaming option in a decent matchup against the Texans.

Carson Wentz throws two TD passes in Week 5 loss

Carson Wentz completed 25 of 35 passes for 402 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 31-25 overtime loss to the Ravens. He also was sacked twice and lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Wentz had his best game of the season as he only threw for 250 yards once in the previous four contests. The 28-year-old quarterback now has seven touchdowns and one interception on the year. Wentz has a favorable matchup in Week 6 against the Texans.
