Carson Wentz, QB (IND)

Fantasy-friendly outing in loss

Wentz completed 27 of 44 passes for 306 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Colts' 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed three times for 21 yards and lost a fumble.

Fantasy managers don't really have too much to complain about regarding Wentz's performance outside of the turnovers, but the veteran quarterback undeniably got in the way of a team win with some of his miscues. All three of Wentz's turnovers occurred in the second half, with the fumble and first interception both leading to Buccaneers touchdowns and the second pick coming on the final play of the game at Tampa Bay's two-yard line. On a more positive note, Wentz was able to notch multiple touchdown throws for the first time since Week 9, and he still boasts an impressive 21:5 TD:INT for the campaign. The 28-year-old does get a golden opportunity for atonement in a Week 13 road divisional clash against the vulnerable Texans defense.

GM declines to commit to 2022 starter

While speaking during his season-ending news conference, GM Chris Ballard fell short of committing to Wentz as the Colts' starting QB next season, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports. "When we made the decision, after Philip [Rivers] retired ... to make a move on Carson, at the time of the decision we felt good about it and I still don't regret the decision at the time," Ballard noted Thursday. "Sitting here today ... I won't make a comment on who is going to be here next year and who is not going to be here next year. That's not fair to any player."
