Carson Wentz:  21/34 for 190 yards with 1 TD.  Wentz is now 2-0 as a rookie and has a 3/0 TD/INT ratio.  He telegraphed some throws last night and by goodness he took some big hits when he didn't slide when running but the kid seems to have the "it" factor.  Not a fantasy football favor yet but a player on the rise who will get there soon enough.

Jay Cutler:  12/17 for 157 yards with 1 INT.  Cutler was his typical turnover self before exiting with a thumb injury that he is concerned about.  Brian Hoyer would get the start in his place and he is a capable QB who has played well in spurts in the past so that would not be a huge knock on Alshon Jeffery.

Jeremy Langford:  11 carries for 28 yards with 1 TD and 1 fumble to go with 1 catch for 6 yards.  Ugh.  Once again Langford scored as he seems to have a knack to do but his rushing average stinks and he annoyed John Fox with the fumble as Jordan Howard came on afterwards.  Fox already was critical of Langford going into this and the fumble could now push him behind Howard.  Something to watch this week but Langford just doesn't seem to have the ability to create yards on his own.

Ryan Mathews:  9 carries for 32 yards with 2 TD to go with 1 catch for 3 yards.  Mathews got so lucky receiving two chances from in close after Chicago offensive turnovers.  He cashed in and is getting the majority of carries for the Eagles so he holds good RB 2 value while he is one piece.

Alshon Jeffery:  5 catches for 96 yards.  Again Brian Hoyer is a capable QB so Jeffery won't get destroyed with a Cutler injury.  The only thing that could hurt is big plays down the field may not be so plentiful.

Jordan Matthews:  6 catches for 71 yards.  Matthews remains the number 1 target and rightfully so for Wentz and things have all worked out here amid initial fears with a rookie under center.  Solid WR 2/3 value.
