Wentz has been dreadful to the point of having his starting job called into question. but his matchup couldn't be better this week against Seattle's generous pass defense. Quarterbacks have performed well against the 'Hawks, including Cam Newton's best game of the season and Josh Allen's bounce back that got him out of a slump. If there has ever been a week to trust Wentz, it's this one. He's a mid-range QB2 for Week 12, but he's got top-12 upside. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What do we even say at this point? Wentz has played about as bad as you could imagine, yet he's still the No. 14 fantasy quarterback. It was a messy game in the rain against the Browns, but they were also without their best pass-rusher. Despite all the hate, Wentz has thrown multiple touchdowns in five of his last six games, though it hasn't been pretty to watch. Is Wentz just good enough to make it work against the Seahawks, the team who's allowed 6.5 percent more fantasy points than any other team in the NFL? It sure helps they've faced a league-leading 72.1 plays per game, but they've also allowed the third-most fantasy points per offensive play. The Eagles have thrown the ball on 63.5 percent of their plays (4th-most) while Seahawks' opponents have thrown the ball 65.2 percent of the time (most in NFL). The Seahawks haven't even allowed a high touchdown percentage (4.04 percent, ranks eighth-lowest), but have allowed a massive 7.98 yards per attempt, which ranks as the fifth-highest mark in the league. We know that touchdowns catch on over time, while YPA is the more predictive stat. This matchup should align for a lot of fantasy points, so even if Wentz isn't efficient, he should put up fantasy production. Jared Goff was the only quarterback who failed to post 16-plus fantasy points and finish as the QB17 or better against the Seahawks, though he still threw for 302 yards, just didn't get the touchdowns when they got down in the red zone. The Seahawks have actually allowed 8-of-10 quarterbacks to finish as the QB13 or better against them. Wentz is scary as hell to play and you may not want to watch, but he's a solid high-end QB2 streamer this week.I mentioned last week that you shouldn't bury Dalton for one bad game as the starter. I mean, everyone has a bad day, though his came on national television when everyone was watching. We had nine seasons worth of competent quarterback play in a worse offense with worse receiving options. We can't pretend he's fixed because of one good game, but we never should've buried him for one bad game. Throwing for 203 yards and three touchdowns was a start, but now he'll go against the defense that knocked him out cold back in Week 7 when he completed just 9-of-19 passing for 75 scoreless yards. Washington is one of six teams who've allowed fewer than 1.30 PPR points per offensive play, so seeing him struggle in that game shouldn't have been too shocking. Washington has generated a sack on 9.4 percent of dropbacks, which ranks as the second-highest number in the league, and a lot different than the Vikings last week (nearly half the percentage). On the season, Washington has allowed just four quarterbacks finish better than the QB20 against them, and just one of those games has come since Week 5. In today's passing league, it's odd to see a team allow just four quarterbacks to finish with more than 212 passing yards against them, but that's where we're at with Washington. Dalton is not someone you should aim to stream on Thanksgiving.
