Fantasy Football analysis: Colts QB Carson Wentz
After scoring 20.3 fantasy points in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, Wentz put up 18.3 fantasy points on Sunday against the Titans. In that game, the veteran quarterback completed 27-of-51 passes for 231 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. The last time Wentz threw an interception was in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Wentz wasn’t a highly regarded quarterback in fantasy football after his tumultuous 2020 season with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, the veteran quarterback has turned it around in his first season in Indianapolis. Wentz should be able to have some success against the Jets on Thursday night as they are allowing 275.3 passing yards per game.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
If you are looking for a streaming option at quarterback, then Wentz would not be a bad option for Week 9. The Jets are giving up 17.7 fantasy points per game to quarterback this season.
