Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It appears that Wentz has found a new way to score fantasy points on a consistent basis. Over his last five games, he's rushed for at least 37 yards in three of them while scoring a rushing touchdown in four of them. Because of that, he's now scored at least 17.4 fantasy points in each of his last four games. It's a bit concerning that he's still yet to throw for more than 270 yards in a game this year, but we'll take fantasy points where we can get them. It is worth noting that the Giants have allowed a league-low 3.7 fantasy points on the ground to quarterbacks this year. They have allowed a 70.8 percent completion-rate this year, which ranks as the fourth-highest mark in football, which obviously bodes well for Wentz considering his lackluster 58.7 percent completion-rate this year. The Giants have had a better pass rush than most expected, as they're near the middle of the league in all pressure-related stats, including their 6.88 percent sack-rate. They've faced just 33.7 pass attempts per game, as the lack of strength on offense has not pressured teams into throwing the ball a whole lot. Because of that, we've seen limited fantasy output, as just one quarterback (Ben Roethlisberger) has finished as a top-15 option against them. In fact, since that Week 1 game against the Steelers, the Giants secondary has allowed just six passing touchdowns over five games. Knowing Wentz will be without Miles Sanders, Zach Ertz, and Dallas Goedert, it's tough to say he's a strong streaming option. Consider him just a mid-to-low-end QB2. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Wentz has looked terrible through the first portion of the season, but he continues to be effective for fantasy. Even though Wentz was able to put up great numbers through garbage time production, you should never want to rely on that when considering a streaming QB. This is a fine matchup for Wentz, but he's a mid-range QB2 at best.
