  • Colts Having Second Thoughts On Carson Wentz?

    The Indianapolis Colts may be second-guessing their decision to trade for quarterback Carson Wentz last offseason. On the subject of trading for Wentz, general manager Chris Ballard said, "At the time, we felt it was the right decision." Whether or not they keep Wentz for the 2022 season, they'll still be paying him at least $15 million, and it remains to be seen if they can actually find an upgrade. Wentz played pretty well in his first season with the Colts, right up until the end with a disappointing performance in the Week 18 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He wasn't excellent for fantasy managers by any stretch of the imagination, throwing for 3,563 yards and 27 touchdowns, but he had only seven interceptions. Wentz is under contract through 2024, but 2022 is the final year with guaranteed money attached to him. If he's back in Indy, he'll be a midrange QB2 target in the Colts run-first attack.

  • Carson Wentz Activated From Reserve/COVID-19 List

    The Indianapolis Colts activated quarterback Carson Wentz from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday. He will start Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders despite missing practice all week. The 29-year-old will need to clear more hurdles Sunday morning but is expected to be all systems go for Week 17. The former No.2 overall pick has thrown for 3,230 yards, 25 touchdowns, and six interceptions while rushing for 188 yards and a score over 15 games in 2021. Wentz is mid-range QB2 against a Raiders defense that ranks 25th in pass DVOA. Fantasy managers should check back Sunday morning to ensure Wentz is officially active before inserting him into their starting lineups.

  • Carson Wentz Will Start If He Clears COVID-19 Protocols

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said that quarterback Carson Wentz will start on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders if he clears the COVID-19 protocols on his fifth day on Sunday. Wentz tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday and was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, but under the new league rules, he can come off the list and play after five days if he's asymptomatic, even without being vaccinated. The 28-year-old will miss the entire week of practice, however, and it's not like Wentz has been a QB1 all year for fantasy managers to begin with. Regardless of whether Wentz is active for Week 17, the Colts figure to run the ball a lot with MVP candidate Jonathan Taylor. If Wentz doesn't get cleared, rookie quarterback Sam Ehlinger would be in line to make his first career start.

  • Sam Ehlinger Will Start If Carson Wentz Is Out

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich reiterated on Wednesday that Sam Ehlinger will start at quarterback if Carson Wentz is not off the COVID-IR in time for Sunday's game. Reich admitted to talking to Philip Rivers, but the popular story about Rivers coming out of retirement to play seems to be more fiction than reality. Given the NFL's new COVID protocols, it still appears likely that Wentz will be back in time to play on Sunday, but if you're in a super deep league and want to stash Ehlinger on your bench just in case, go for it. Just don't expect a ton of production from him.

  • Carson Wentz's Week 17 Status Is TBD

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz's status for the Week 17 game against the Las Vegas Raiders remains to be determined, pending updated COVID-19 protocols. If the NFL's new protocols say that a player only needs to quarantine for five days after a positive test, Wentz could be cleared by Saturday. It was reported earlier on Tuesday that Wentz is unvaccinated and ruled out for Sunday's game against Vegas, but that was under the assumption that he'd be in quarantine for 10 days. If the NFL's mandatory quarantine period is reduced to five games, Wentz could have a shot to play. Either way, those that have been using Wentz as their QB2 in superflex leagues need to make backup plans. If rookie Sam Ehlinger is forced to make his first career start this weekend, the rest of the Colts offensive players must be downgraded in fantasy.

  • Carson Wentz Lands On COVID-19 List, Out For Week 17

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday. Since Wentz is unvaccinated, he will miss the Week 17 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. The former Philadelphia Eagle hasn't been a QB1 for fantasy managers in Indy's run-first offense, but his absence in an important AFC matchup this weekend will no doubt be a downgrade for the Colts offense as a whole. As far as running back Jonathan Taylor, the NFL's leading rusher, it's also a downgrade for him, but fantasy managers should not be outright benching him in championship week. The Colts are discussing retired quarterback Philip Rivers to replace Wentz this weekend, but it's much more likely that sixth-round rookie Sam Ehlinger takes over this Sunday. Ehlinger has taken 18 offensive snaps this year but hasn't attempted a single pass. His presence under center will be a downgrade for all of Indy's offensive weapons.

  • Carson Wentz Delivers Monster Performance In Week 16 Win

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz completed 18 of 28 pass attempts for 225 yards and two touchdowns during a 22-16 Week 16 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Wentz had thrown for under 200 yards in his previous two games but was asked to step up his usage and passing attempts to seal the third-straight win for the Colts in the Desert on Saturday night. Wentz rolled out of the pocket and bought time before finding Dezmon Patton in the back of the end zone in the final seven minutes of the game. He also threw another touchdown to veteran wideout T.Y. Hilton in the first quarter. Wentz played a turnover-free game and showed he's more than capable of winning games without getting bailed out by star second-year running back. Jonathan Taylor, who still managed to rush for over 100 yards on Saturday night. Wentz should remain a QB2 against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 17 due to their lackluster run defense.

  • Carson Wentz Completes Five Passes In Week 15 Win

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz completed five of 12 passes for 57 yards, a touchdown, and an interception during a 27-17 Week 15 win over the New England Patriots. On Saturday, Wentz committed his sixth interception of the season but managed to notch a passing touchdown on a double-reverse to Nyheim Hines in the first half. He was also used as a ball carrier in several short down and distance scenarios, including two or three critical fourth-down conversions. Wentz has thrown for a combined 215 passing yards in his last two games. This is due to the run-centric game plan that Colts head coach Frank Reich deploys with star running back Jonathan Taylor in the backfield. In addition, Wentz has been a game manager as of late, making him a liability in fantasy lineups moving forward.

  • Carson Wentz Efficient In Week 13 Win

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz completed 16 of 22 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown during a 31-0 Week 13 rout of the Houston Texans. Unfortunately, Wentz's passing production dipped down below 200 yards for the third time in his last four games, lowering his ceiling for fantasy purposes moving forward. He also does not offer the rushing upside we once saw on display in Philadelphia, as he has only surpassed 30 rushing yards once this season. As long as Jonathan Taylor receives 25-plus touches per game, Wentz becomes nothing more than a game manager for Indianapolis. He's a great quarterback in real-life but a QB2 for fantasy purposes, dropping him off the streaming radar in most one-quarterback leagues.

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz completed 27 of 44 passes for 306 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions during a 38-31 Week 12 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Wentz finally ended a six-game streak under 300 passing yards during Sunday's loss, tossing three touchdowns and committing three turnovers that proved costly. However, if Jonathan Taylor gets shut down as he did against the Bucs moving forward, Wentz becomes an intriguing low-end QB1 prospect against the Houston Texans in Week 13.

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz completed 11 of 20 pass attempts for 106 yards and a touchdown during a 41-15 Week 11 win against the Buffalo Bills. Wentz didn't need to do much during their decisive road win over the Bills, as his only touchdown pass went to star running back Jonathan Taylor, who totaled five touchdowns on the day. As long as the Colts' offense can continue to control games with Taylor playing at an elite level, Wentz is nothing more than a QB2 and should be avoided in one quarterback leagues.

  • Carson Wentz Scores Three Touchdowns In Week 7 Win

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz completed 17 of 26 attempts for 150 yards and two touchdowns during a 30-18 Week 7 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Wentz also added four carries for 23 yards and a rushing touchdown to lead the Colts to their second consecutive win on the road during a torrential downpour in the Bay Area on Sunday night. Wentz is currently the QB14 in fantasy and has only thrown one interception in seven games while averaging 4.4 yards per carry and totaling 12 touchdowns. However, he should be considered a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 moving forward as he continues to adapt and familiarize himself with head coach Frank Reich's offensive scheme.
