Carson Wentz trending to starting Week 1 for Indianapolis Colts

Quarterback Carson Wentz is trending to starting Week 1 for the Indianapolis Colts as he recovers from foot surgery (per Chris Mortensen)

Fantasy Impact: Wentz’s foot surgery had a 5-12 week recovery timeline and it seems he’ll be back on the earlier side. This is great news for the Colts as Wentz is the best QB on the roster. Fantasy managers should still expect a slow start for Indy’s offense even if Wentz starts Week 1. The surgery has caused him to miss a lot of practice time, time that’s important to build a repertoire with his new pass catchers.
