Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Wentz has played poorly through two weeks, though he gets a solid draw against the Bengals in Week 3. Cincinnati has been extremely generous to opposing running backs, limiting the fantasy points scored by opposing quarterbacks, but don't write this off as a bad matchup for Wentz. He has the talent to do well even with a dearth of pass-catching options at his disposal, but his play this year has been concerning. He should be viewed as a mid-TE2, though there's sneaky top-12 upside to be had here. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.Based on what we saw in Week 2, Sanders is 100 percent healthy. He played 77 percent of the snaps, which is massive for a player in Doug Pederson's offense. Now a big home favorite, can we get a breakout game from him in Week 3? When playing the Bengals, the gap between running backs and quarterbacks is 24.6 fantasy points, which is the second-highest gap in the league. Despite the additions the Bengals made this offseason, they still appear to be a team you can run the ball against, as Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt showcased on primetime last week. We watched the Chargers and Browns both rack up at least 32 carries in this matchup, which bodes well for Sanders, and maybe even Scott. The Bengals allowed 19 running backs to finish as top-20 options against them last year and have allowed three of them through two games in 2020. The Eagles offensive line is a problem, but we can't pretend that the Browns or Washington have offensive lines that are great, and they were able to make it work. Start Sanders as an RB1 in this matchup. Scott touched the ball seven times in Sanders' return to the lineup, which isn't great, but what is great is the fact that it was only those two (Sanders and Scott) who touched the ball. If we get anywhere close to the 35 touches per game running backs have averaged against the Bengals here, Scott could offer last-minute RB4 value, especially in PPR formats.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Wentz has definitely not looked like himself through the first couple weeks of the season and this offense needs to figure out their identity quickly. Until we see Wentz start to bounce back to the type of QB that he was previously, he can't be trusted anywhere near your starting lineup. He's a mid-range QB2 this week even what looks like a great matchup on paper.Scott was a favorite for some in the fantasy football community heading into draft season, but he's simply not seeing the work necessary to be a reliable fantasy asset. With Sanders back in the lineup, Scott only saw seven touches in week two and that's simply not going to get it done. Scott can remain on your bench or can be dropped to the waiver wire if a better option is available.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bengals are 2nd against fantasy quarterbacks, but a big reason for that is playing Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield and that they have been gashed by the running game, ranking 31st against fantasy backs. Wentz has been in a funk to start the season, I think he has his best game of the season to date at home. He is a boom / bust QB1.
