Carson Wentz will play in his first NFL game on Sunday at the Linc, since December 10th, 2017 when he tore his ACL.

The stadium will be electric, the emotions will be high, but like Wentz said himself once the game begins "it's just football."

As for the game, the 1-1 Eagles are 6.5 point favorites over the Andrew Luck, Frank Reich, and the 1-1 Colts. The over/under game total is 47.5. 

Here are Wentz's player prop bets, according to Bovada LV. 

Total passing yards: 260.5

Total TD passes: 2

Total INT: 0.5

Therefore, Bovada is projecting Wentz for 17.42 fantasy points, if you play in a league where every 25 yards passing is worth one point, every touchdown pass is worth four, and interceptions are negative two.

The problem for Wentz is the limited numbers of weapons he will have with Alshon Jeffery, Mack Hollins, and Mike Wallace out. Furthermore, his top two running backs—Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring)—have not practiced this week and seem unlikely to play.
