In his press conference on Monday, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed the fears of Philadelphia fans in announcing that Carson Wentz had indeed torn his ACL against the Rams. The news removed the gloss of an Eagles victory that sealed the NFC East and brings to an end a campaign that had been a godsend for fantasy owners. But despite the bad news, there is still hope that an Eagles quarterback can carry his team into the postseason…and your fantasy team to glory. Wentz had been playing at an MVP level in his second season in the NFL. His fourth touchdown pass against the Rams (his fourth game with four TD passes) had given him 33 on the season. This marked a single-season record for the Eagles. Among QBs, only Russell Wilson had more fantasy points. Wentz was enjoying the best fantasy season for a QB through 14 weeks of any second-year signal caller since 2010.
