2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: CARSON WENTZ UNABLE TO FINISH SEASON YET AGAIN

A year ago at this time it was a torn ACL in his knee.  This time around it is a back fracture.  Combined together, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has now been unable to finish a season for the second year in a row; putting a major hurt on those fantasy football owners who trusted in his ability to deliver league glory.  Now in terms of 2018, Wentz was very good for long stretches of his 11 games as he tossed 2 or more touchdowns in 8 of those contests and also went for over 300 in five.  Alas, Wentz' worst stretch of games came late as he was shaky in two of his last four and then he suffered the back fracture which adds more legitimacy in terms of his fragile physical state.  After all, when you can't finish a season for the second year in a row, the injury-probe label gets slapped on the player no matter what and this is what Wentz will carry with him into the offseason.  Now the flip side of this is that next summer Wentz should carry a very attractive fantasy football draft cost which should get the attention of those who like to look for value at the very deep QB position.  The talent is certainly not in question here but Wentz as an early mid-round pick next summer appears to be a very tantalizing proposition and pairing him with someone like a Jimmy Garoppolo or even a likely discounted Tom Brady would be a swell idea.  So while Wentz once again let his fantasy football owners down in the stretch run, the outlook is still quite enticing.
