We’ve had some stinkers on Thursday Night Football, but Week 4 of the 2019 NFL season brings an intriguing matchup. The Green Bay Packers host the Philadelphia Eagles, and that brings with it a showdown between quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Carson Wentz.

Wentz is putting up big fantasy point totals, but it hasn’t been easy. He’s only completed 61 percent of his passes, but he has 803 passing yards, with six touchdowns and two interceptions, and a rushing touchdown. He’s averaging 22.7 fantasy points per game.

Fantasy analysis: Wentz has out-performed Aaron Rodgers this year, but faces a tough Packers defense. He’s done enough to justify continuing to start him, but this is a tough road matchup for the Eagles on a short week. He does get back Alshon Jeffery, but continues to be without DeSean Jackson. You should continue starting Wentz, but you might want to lower expectations just a little bit for this matchup.
