Expect ’11’ to put up major numbers for both the Philadelphia Eagles and for Fantasy owners.
If you haven’t heard the Eagles have a pretty good quarterback in Carson Wentz. Whatever you think of him, you know that he’s a winner. He can spin the ball. He can also tuck it and run. Just know this. He’s going to find a way to get the job done.
Last season, Wentz scored 27 touchdowns even though his leading receiver, Alshon Jeffery, was injured more often than not and even though DeSean Jackson played in what amounts to one game. Think about what he may have been able to do with healthy skill players, a more experienced Greg Ward, and someone with Jalen Reagor’s skill set.
That’s what Wentz is walking to with this Eagles offense in 2020. If the Eagles wide receiver corps can manage to stay healthy and, in all honesty, if Wentz can stay healthy, ’11’ won’t have any problems raising his touchdown total by at least five more scores to reach somewhere around 35 touchdown passes.
Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens will likely be the first two quarterbacks selected in Fantasy drafts. After they’re gone, there isn’t any agreement on who might be the best option to go third. Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints isn’t the passing machine he was five years ago, and if we’re being honest, there aren’t many options that are better than Wentz. ’11’ is carrying the city of Philadelphia on his back, and if you desire, he can carry your Fantasy football squad as well. Choose wisely!
