Fantasy Football Carson Wentz is among elite QBs


Carson Wentz is among the best players in the NFL, but after finishing the past two seasons in street clothes, there are some around the league who question his greatness. Wentz received the ultimate co-sign this week when the Eagles matched up with the vaunted Baltimore Ravens defense for two days.

The Ravens defense came away quite impressed by the Eagles’ juggernaut of an offense, and no player received more praise than Wentz. After hitting Alshon Jeffery for a bomb over the top of all-world safety Earl Thomas, the Ravens star had this to say about Wentz.

“I would tell you, in this league there’s a small pool of guys that you would classify at an elite level,” Thomas told NBC Sports Philadelphia. “And I think he’s definitely in that pool.”

The Ravens defense was left more than impressed by the Eagles high powered offense, with several Baltimore defensive backs singing the Birds’ praise.

“That’s a potent offense that has some big-time playmakers,” Jimmy Smith said. “It was good to get out there and practice against them.”

“Yeah, it kind of makes it tough to game plan,” Marlon Humphrey said. “Every team just about has a guy you want to double, but when you kinda got two or three guys you could double, it makes things a little bit tougher.”

Thomas went on to say that he relishes the sort of back and forth that comes with two days of joint practices with the Eagles, and if the two teams do meet again, it’ll be at the Super Bowl in Miami.
