Fantasy football draft: Where to target Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz
On a new team for the first time in his five-year career, expectations are high for Indianapolis Colts starting QB Carson Wentz . Below, we look at Carson Wentz's 2021 fantasy football average draft position (ADP) and where you should draft him.
While expectations may be high for Wentz, reality may not be kind for the veteran. Despite his limited weapons, Wentz threw and NFL-high 15 interceptions last season (tied with Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock).
The potential is there for Wentz to be both a viable fantasy option and a playoff-making quarterback, but the question is if he can get back to that level.
Wentz's ADP: 89.68

Where should you take Wentz in your fantasy football draft?
Wentz may be a sleeper in terms of finding a late-round backup that can produce when taking on an easy defense. In two-QB leagues in which quarterbacks are at a premium, Wentz is a viable fourth-round pick.
However, in keeper, dynasty or standard one-QB leagues, Wentz will drastically see his value deteriorate. From 2017-19, he threw 81 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
This doesn't mean take Wentz in the first eight rounds, but take him in round 11 when backup quarterbacks are flying off the board and expect to get a couple of quality starts out of him.
