FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: CARSON WENTZ STARTING WEEK 1 FOR BIRDS

The Philadelphia Eagles will ride rookie QB Carson Wentz for better or for worse starting in Week 1 the team announced on Monday.  After the team traded away veteran Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday, the Eagles made it clear Wentz would get the nod if he weere recovered from his preseason rib injury.

Analysis:  Very shocked here as Wentz is from a D-II program where you figured he would need time to adapt to the NFL game.  The Eagles have always played by their own rules however and feel there is no reason not to dive fully in with Wentz.  There is no way of telling what will happen here given how little Wentz played in the preseason and the big step up in level of competition but his powerful arm is a better fantasy football fit for wideout Jordan Matthews at least.
