> > > Its approaching your fantasy draft day and you thinking about all possible scenarios when it comes to drafting a quarterback. You have two options Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott and Philadelphia Eagles Carson Wentz. Who would you rather take? 

     Dallas selected Dak in the 4th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. During Dak’s rookie season he threw for 3,667 yards with 23 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. He was also able to rush for 282 yards and 6 touchdowns. For the 2017 season Dak will be facing the 27th easiest schedule as a QB. Dak was one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the league last season, yet he was only able to throw for 300 yards twice and was unable to throw more than 319 yards. Dak is projected to throw for 3,754 yards with 24 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. He is projected to rush for 278 yards and 3 touchdowns for the 2017 season. While posting 269 pts for the season.

     Philadelphia selected Carson Wentz in the 1st round with the 2nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. During his rookie campaign, he threw for 3,782 yards with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. During the 2017 season though Wentz will be facing the 30th easiest schedule as a quarterback.  Wentz should have a more productive season after the Eagles added Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and LeGarrette Blount. Wentz is projected to throw for 3,890 yards, 22 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while posting 238 pts for the season.  

    Personally, I would draft Carson Wentz because he has more weapons to deal with for the 2017 season. Wentz can throw the ball well on the run and can put air under the ball during fade routes. He is also consistently accurate on short and medium passes. With Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith playing on the outside I expect Wentz to have a much-improved season.  Which quarterback would you decided to take in your upcoming fantasy draft? Both could be poised to have yet another impressive season.  Would you rather draft Carson Wentz or Dak Prescott?
