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.As of now, it seems like Bridgewater will be back under center for the Panthers this week, though after watching P.J. Walker last week, they could keep him on a short leash. If Bridgewater is healthy, he should have no issue with his Week 12 matchup against the Vikings. There are just four teams who've allowed a touchdown pass on more than 6.0 percent of attempts, and the Vikings are on that list. There have been five quarterbacks who've thrown for three or more touchdowns against them, and that's despite just three quarterbacks throwing the ball more than 37 times against them. Meanwhile, Bridgewater has thrown multiple touchdowns in five of his last seven games. The Vikings pass rush has been a major issue for them, as they're averaging just a 27.1 percent pressure-rate on the season, which ranks 27th in the NFL. While operating in a clean pocket, Bridgewater has a 116.7 QB Rating, which ranks eighth among quarterbacks. Then you look at the position they struggle the most with (wide receivers), and you combine that with Bridgewater's highly-targeted players, you realize that this matchup is very good for him. The downside is not knowing if he's truly 100 percent. If he gets in a full practice by the end of the week, Bridgewater can be considered as a decent QB2 with top-12 upside, though there is certainly risk.
