Carson Wentz landed on the COVID-19 reserve list earlier this week after testing positive. Wentz was originally expected to miss Sunday's game due to being unvaccinated and having stiffer protocols, but an update to league policy gave the signal-caller a chance to play against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The latest update on Wentz solidifies his Week 17 fantasy football outlook.

Carson Wentz Fantasy Outlook

The current QB14 in fantasy scoring is good to go for Sunday's contest without limitations, providing managers with a starting option in the championship.

It's been an up-and-down stretch for the QB, who put up just 5.98 fantasy points in Week 15 before posting a solid 17.40 points in Week 16. He's gone over 20 fantasy points only once over his past six games, as the Indianapolis Colts have relied on the ground game, showcasing his limited ceiling.

Las Vegas is no pushover either, ranking in the middle of the pack with 16.98 fantasy points allowed per game to QBs and placing just outside the top 10 in fewest passing yards per contest (219.6).

Wentz is an okay starting choice for those streaming in deeper league, but there's better options out there to consider.
