DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery Will Miss a Minimum of two Games: Can Carson Wentz Produce Without his top Wide Receivers?

The Eagles will be without DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery for the next two weeks due to injury. Eagles Maven Edward Kracz joins Jim Cramer to discuss the outlook for the Philly Offense.

Is Carson Wentz Still A Top Fantasy Football QB Without Jackson and Jeffery?

We know wide receivers DeSean Jackson (groin/abdomen)  and Alshon Jeffery (calf) are on the shelf for a minimum of two games after both wide receivers sustained injuries in the 1st Quarter of the team's Week 2 match-up vs. the Falcons. But the bigger question for Fantasy Football is whether QB Carson Wentz can still perform without two of his best wide receivers.

Fact is, without Jackson and Jeffery, Wentz struggled against the Falcons, completing just 58.1 percent of his throws for 231 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. 

Eagles Maven Edward Kracz joined Jim Cramer's Bull Market Fantasy and discussed the possibilities of who will step up in the Eagles passing attack and the obvious answer is clearly Nelson Agholor who had eight catches for 107 yards and a score while filing in for Jackson and Jeffery in Week 2.

But is Agholor and tight end Zach Ertz enough to help Wentz overcome the lack of veteran playmakers or will a rookie like JJ Arcega-Whiteside need to elevate his play despite just two games of professional football experience?

What do you think will happen with Wentz going forward? Is he still a QB1 for Fantasy Football? Leave your predictions in the comments.

Jackson could be out longer than we though

He's a low-end QB1 over the next 2 weeks.

I've knocked him down my rankings a bit. We'll see if he can.
