What You Need to Know:
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
Wentz gets a fresh start in Indianapolis this season but also finds some familiarity. He’ll be reuniting with HC Frank Reich, who was Wentz’s OC for his first 2 NFL seasons in 2016 and 2017.
Wentz finished 3rd among QBs in fantasy points per game in that 2017 season and also scored as a QB1 in 2018 and 2019. So the disastrous 2020 season looks more like an outlier.
A likely run-leaning Colts offense figures to cap Wentz’s fantasy upside a bit. But we wouldn’t be at all surprised if he bounces back and at least brings spot-start fantasy value in 2021.
