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).

  • Justin Herbert Has An Outstanding Game In Week 3

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was outstanding in a Week 3 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Herbert completed 40 of his 47 pass attempts for 405 yards and three touchdowns. He also added 11 yards on two carries and only took one sack despite the Vikings defense blitzing on 41 of 50 dropbacks. Herbert became just the second player in NFL history to pass for over 400 yards with three touchdowns, no turnovers, and an 85%or higher completion percentage. It was a great performance that led the Bolts to their first win of the season. A home matchup against the Raiders is next up in Week 4.

  • Justin Herbert Has An Excellent Week 3 Matchup

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert has a mouth watering fantasy matchup in a Week 3 game against the Minnesota Vikings. Herbert is fantasy's overall QB3 through two weeks, and gets to face a Vikings zone defense that has coughed up fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Herbert has always done well against zone defense and should get plenty of yardage from Keenan Allen and his other pass catchers. It's a top-five ranking for Herbert this week along with a very high floor.

  • Justin Herbert Puts Up Numbers In A Week 2 Overtime Loss

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert played well for most of the Chargers overtime loss in Week 2. He wasn't able to get anything going in overtime, but for the game, he completed 27 of his 41 pass attempts for 305 yards and two touchdowns. He took three sacks, losing 24 yards, and did not gain any rushing yardage at all, but he also did not commit any turnovers. It was a typical Chargers game, as the offense was playing well while the defense wasn't. Fantasy managers are likely happy with Herbert's stat line, but the less happy 0-2 Bolts will head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings in Week 3.

  • Justin Herbert - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is a strong fantasy option in a Week 2 game against the Tennessee Titans. Herbert played well enough in Week 1, but the Chargers relied on their ground game which limited his opportunities. They'll likely throw more in Week 2 against a Titans defense that didn't do much in Week 1. With a much stronger offensive line and healthy pass catchers around him, Herbert is an easy QB1 option in Week 2 and beyond.

  • Justin Herbert Has A Forgettable Week 1 Performance

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert had a forgettable Week 1 performance against the Miami Dolphins. Leading a run-heavy attack centered around Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley, Herbert completed 23 of his 33 pass attempts for 228 yards and one touchdown. He also ran five times for 18 yards and another score. Herbert made some great throws in this game and will certainly have bigger performances this season, but this wasn't the game his fantasy managers were hoping for in Week 1.

  • Justin Herbert Set For A Strong Start In Week 1

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is primed for a strong start to the season in a Week 1 game against the Miami Dolphins. Herbert had to deal with a ton of injuries to the Chargers offense last season and still ended up as the overall QB12. With a new offense and (so far) no major injuries, Herbert could easily be a top-five fantasy QB this season, and that should all start in Week 1 against a Dolphins defense that allowed one of Herbert's best games last season in Week 14.

  • Justin Herbert Could Be Primed For Career Year

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    ESPN's Dan Graziano thinks that Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert could be ready to set statistical highs across the board in 2023 while working with new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Moore helped Dak Prescott become a top QB in his time in Dallas, but Herbert has more raw talent. The Chargers are hoping that Moore will help Herbert play faster and more aggressively. The team thinks they saw evidence of this throughout training camp and that the fourth-year signal-caller could be ready to reach new heights. The 25-year-old had a career-high 5,014 passing yards and 38 touchdowns in 2021. Herbert certainly has the weapons around him to take the next step, making him a highly attractive midrange QB1 target in fantasy once the bigger names at the position come off the board.

  • Chargers, Justin Herbert Agree To Five-Year Extension

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    The Los Angeles Chargers and star quarterback Justin Herbert agreed to terms on a blockbuster five-year contract extension worth $262.5 million on Tuesday. The deal includes monster guarantees to protect Herbert and lock him in for the future. It was only a matter of time before Herbert signed a monster contract extension with the Bolts before heading his fourth NFL season. The 25-year-old battled through injuries over 17 regular-season games in 2022 and was a slight disappointment for fantasy managers after putting up 4,739 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He had a career-high 68.2 completion percentage, but his aerial yardage and total TDs were down. If LA's offense can get the ground game going under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore this year, Herbert could bounce back in a big way in an offense with plenty of playmakers around him. Target him as a midrange QB1 with upside after the bigger names come off the board.

    Within a limited salary cap, as other positions begin to see an increase in the average value of their contracts, the space in the salary cap for those increases has to come from somewhere.

  • Justin Herbert To Take Plenty Of Deep Shots

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    One of the ways that new Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore plans to improve the offense in 2023 is to entrust rocket-armed quarterback Justin Herbert with taking big shots down the field to his big receivers. "Justin's such a smart decision maker," Moore said on The Season with Peter Schrager podcast. "It allows you to really call it in an aggressive manner. He does such a great job." Herbert's average depth of target of 7.2 yards in 2022 put him in 45th in the league, but that number was diminished due to the team's tendency to target running back Austin Ekeler in the short passing game. He still attempted 68 passes of 20-plus yards, seventh-most of any QB. Seven of his 25 TDs came on deep throws. But Herbert took a step back and finished with his worst passer rating (93.2) and lowest TD total in his three seasons. The addition of Moore as the play-caller should help Herbert overall and make an already scary Chargers offense even more explosive.
