1. Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz
Looking at Carson Wentz’s stats would have you think he is a good-to-great QB. In 17 games last fall, he threw for 3,563 yards, 27 TDs and seven interceptions. However, watching Wentz play tells a different story.
Wentz was responsible for some of the most hilariously bad plays in the NFL last campaign, showing how much of an issue his decision making is. Wentz was also singlehandedly responsible for the Colts not making the playoffs, having a horrible four-game stretch to end the season.
After being traded to the Colts, it seemed as if Wentz’s best football was ahead of him, as he was placed behind an elite offensive line, with an elite RB in Taylor and very solid receivers. He was also reunited with Frank Reich. However, Wentz didn’t live up to the hype.
Now, after being traded yet again to Washington, Wentz is in a worse situation than Indianapolis and is playing under a whole new system. When you combine this with whispers of Wentz playing poorly in the Commanders OTAs, it is seeming likely that we will see another stinker of a season for the former Pro Bowl QB.
The Commanders have been without a top notch QB since Kirk Cousins. If Wentz can somehow manage to turn his poor play around, it would be huge for the team. However, not many people see this happening.
