July 23 (UPI) -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz fell 93 spots in the NFL's annual list of its Top 100 players, ranking as the league's No. 96 player. The list is chosen by fellow NFL players.

Wentz ranked as the league's third-best player on the 2018 NFL Top 100. The Eagles star was an MVP candidate in 2017, when he completed 60.2 percent of his passes for 3,296 yards, 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions, but watched his season end early due to injury.

He completed a career-high 69.6 percent of his throws for 3,074 yards, 21 scores and seven interceptions in 2018, while dealing with a broken back.
