Fantasy Advice

I'm not sure I've drafted Herbert in any early drafts, only because he hasn't fallen enough for me to pull the trigger. Expecting solid returns with the addition of OC Kellen Moore, and excellent receiving options (to the extent they stay healthy).

  • Chargers OC on plan for Herbert: Run the ball

    Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Greg Roman told reporters Thursday that he is confident that the Chargers will establish a consistent running offense, which he expects to elevate quarterback Justin Herbert.

  • Greg Roman Wants Balanced Offense For Chargers

    Headshot for Austin Ekeler

    New Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who has a history of leading a run-first offense in the NFL, said he would like the team's offense in 2024 to be balanced. "We want to be a balanced offense," Roman said. "We want to be able to run it when we want to run it and throw it when we want to throw it. If they present looks that are favorable to run it, then we want to be able to run it at a high level." Quarterback Justin Herbert has never had an above-average running game to take pressure off him early in his career, so if Roman and the Chargers can get the ground game going, it's only going to make things easier on the 25-year-old signal-caller. And if the Chargers re-sign impending free-agent running back Austin Ekeler, it could be good news for him as well after a disappointing season in 2023.

  • Chargers Expected To Hire Greg Roman As Offensive Coordinator

    Headshot for Austin Ekeler

    The Los Angeles Chargers are expected to hire former Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman as their new offensive coordinator, according to league sources. Roman last led Baltimore's offense in 2022 and was new Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh's offensive coordinator with the Niners. The 51-year-old has a reputation of being a run-heavy offensive coordinator, but in Los Angeles he'll inherit one of the better young quarterbacks in the game in Justin Herbert, while starting running back Austin Ekeler heads into unrestricted free agency in March. Still, whoever the Bolts have lined up as their primary running back next season will be intriguing for fantasy purposes with Roman now expected to lead their offense.

    The Los Angeles Chargers are firing head coach Brandon Staley and long-time general manager Tom Telesco on Friday, according to a source. The moves come the day after the Chargers were embarrassed in primetime in their 63-21 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday Night Football. Staley had been on the hot seat in LA since blowing a 27-0 lead in the postseason last year against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Thursday night shellacking by a Raiders team that didn't score at all last week was the final straw for the Chargers decision-makers. The Chargers were playing without star quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) and top wideout Keenan Allen (heel), but the Chargers looked mentally checked out and uninspired in Thursday's performance. The good news for the Bolts is they are currently set up for a high draft pick in 2024.

  • Justin Herbert Out For The Season

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) will miss the final four regular season games after having surgery to fix the broken index finger on his right hand on Tuesday. Backup Easton Stick will now run LA's offense for the rest of the year, which will be a major downgrade for the rest of the Chargers' offensive skill players in fantasy leagues, mainly receiver Keenan Allen and running back Austin Ekeler. The Chargers are doing what is best for Herbert in the long term with the team sitting at 5-8 and out of the AFC playoff picture. Fantasy managers can safely drop Herbert now in single-year formats and look for a replacement if you don't already have one on roster. Through 14 weeks, Herbert finished as a top-10 fantasy QB with 3,133 passing yards on 456 attempts for 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He's likely going to be working with a new head coach in 2024.

  • Justin Herbert Likely To Undergo Surgery Tuesday

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) is very likely to undergo surgery on Tuesday to fix his fractured right index finger, according to a source. Whether Herbert will be able to return this year will be determined by the surgery. However, with four games remaining in the regular season and the Chargers out of the playoff picture at 5-8, it's unlikely Herbert will return at this point. He was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report and is not going to play on Thursday night in Week 15 against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. Fantasy managers that have been using Herbert all year will need to use their backup option or hit the waiver wire moving forward. In LA, Easton Stick is in line to make the first start of his career this week against the Raiders.

  • Justin Herbert Not Expected To Play Thursday Night

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) is not expected to play on Thursday night against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders in Week 15 due to the fractured right index finger he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos. Herbert will be consulting with Dr. Steven Shin to determine the extent of the injury and how much time he will miss, according to a source. The 25-year-old QB already suffered a fractured finger earlier this year, but that was to his left (non-throwing) hand. This one is to the index finger on his throwing hand, which is much more serious for a QB and will put the rest of his season in doubt with only four games remaining. Easton Stick, who replaced Herbert under center in the Week 14 loss, is in line to make his first career start against the Raiders this week, which is obviously a big downgrade for LA's offense.

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) sustained a fractured index finger on his throwing hand, which is putting the rest of his season in jeopardy. He'll have an MRI done on the finger today to determine if he's able to come back this season. He will almost certainly not be on the field on Thursday night when the Chargers face off against the Raiders. Given the record for Los Angeles, there's little reason to rush Herbert back. Easton Stick threw for 179 yards in relief duty and would likely get the start in Week 15.

  • Justin Herbert Has A Fractured Finger

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) didn't return to Sunday's ugly loss to the Denver Broncos. The signal-caller exited halfway through the contest and was listed as questionable. However, the team announced after halftime that Herbert's day was finished. As relayed by NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, head coach Brandon Staley reported that Herbert sustained a fractured right index finger to his throwing hand. As a result, Herbert will likely need more tests to determine his treatment plan. But it's unlikely he'll be on the field on Thursday night against the Las Vegas Raiders. There's also a chance his season is over, considering the Chargers aren't expected to enter the postseason conversation. If that's the case, Easton Stick, who threw for 179 yards off 13-for-24 passing, may be under center for the rest of the 2023-24 campaign, although his presence may not be good news for Keenan Allen, who's been a top fantasy signal-caller all year.

Easton Stick will be under center for the remainder of the contest, although it's possible he could also be starting on Thursday night against Vegas if Herbert can't suit up.

But if Herbert doesn't return, he'll finish with 96 yards and an interception off 9-for-17 passing. Easton Stick is in for relief, although his presence may not be a good thing for guys like Austin Ekeler and Keenan Allen.

  • Justin Herbert Looks To Get Back On Track In Week 14

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert will look to get back on track in a Week 14 game at home against the Denver Broncos. Herbert is the overall fantasy QB5 this season, but he and the Bolts offense have struggled quite a bit in the past two games, leaving him with just 22 total fantasy points since Week 11. A matchup with the Denver defense isn't ideal, as they've been excellent against opposing quarterbacks since Week 8, allowing the second-lowest passer rating and the fewest passing touchdowns in that span. Still, we've seen what Herbert can do, so he's almost always going to be in the QB1 ranks, but there's certainly a lower floor this week than he usually has.
