The forecast for today's 49ers-Eagles game calls for an 80% chance of rain with winds of 15-17 mph. That's certainly enough to impact at least deep passes and kicks. We've adjusted our projections for this game. Check 'em out in the Week 8 Rankings.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz threw for 314 yards, 1 TD and an INT in Sunday's loss to Washington. He threw 19 of his 32 completions to TEs, including a team-high 10 to Zach Ertz and 7 to Trey Burton. Wentz isn't a strong fantasy football option the rest of the way, but he should do OK for Ertz and WR Jordan Matthews in an offense that's stronger when RB Ryan Mathews plays. (He returned Sunday.)

Eagles LT Jason Peters left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game at Seattle to get X-rays on his injured left forearm. We'll see if he returns. Losing the veteran star would deal a big blow to QB Carson Wentz's blindside protection as well as an already volatile running game.

Update: Peters returned in the 2nd quarter after his X-ray came back negative.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz will have no limitations "playbook-wise" in today's opener against the Browns, according to insider Mika Garafolo. That's a good start for the 1st-round rookie. But the bigger concern is lack of reps. Wentz spent the early summer working as Philly's 3rd-string QB and then saw action in just 1 preseason game. We'll be keeping a close eye on Wentz -- his rushing ability gives him fantasy upside -- but wouldn't want to be using him in lineups today.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson named QB Carson Wentz his Week 1 starter. The rookie completed 12 of 24 passes for 89 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT in his 1 preseason appearance. He fractured a rib in that game and hasn't done much in the 3 weeks since. Wentz has an intriguing blend of size, athleticism and arm talent, but expect plenty of growing pains. He's only worth rostering in 2-QB leagues and shouldn't be in Week 1 lineups. The Browns defense, meanwhile, is on the streaming radar for the opening week.

Injury Predictor

Last year, Wentz suffered a hairline fracture to his ribs in the preseason opener. Multiple outlets reported that Wentz also dealt with shoulder soreness later in the season — hardly a surprise considering he chucked it 607 times. Fortunately, he’s back to full strength after gutting out a 16-game rookie campaign.
