  • Chargers, QB Justin Herbert Talking Extension

    Justin Herbert recently became eligible to sign an extension, and the Chargers confirmed that they’ve started negotiations with their franchise quarterback. \"Those talks are ongoing,\" coach Brandon Staley said today (via ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry). \"We\'re at the beginning of all that, but all know how we feel about him.\" Herbert will earn a bit more […]

  • Chargers Don't Know When Justin Herbert Will Be Cleared

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (shoulder) had surgery in January on a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, and general manager Tom Telesco doesn't know exactly when Herbert will be fully cleared. "We'll kind of see where he is as we get into, like, probably more May," Telesco said. The team's first practice of organized team activities is on May 22. Herbert's left shoulder injury really isn't much of a story this offseason and he should be completely healthy by training camp this summer and for the start of the 2023 season. The 25-year-old isn't an elite, high-end QB1 for fantasy, but he's a nice consolation prize if you wait a little bit at the position in fall drafts.

  • Chargers Confident They'll Keep Justin Herbert Long Term

    Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said he's "confident that Justin Herbert is gonna be our quarterback for a long time." Staley also said that contract-extension talks with Herbert and his representatives are in the early stages, but in the end, the two sides should be able to work something out. The Chargers are going to have to shell out quite a bit of money to keep the 25-year-old around. He hasn't had any postseason success in his first three NFL seasons, but the former first-rounder won the Rookie of the Year in 2020 and has proven to be one of the better signal-callers in the NFL, throwing for 14,089 yards, 94 touchdowns and 35 interceptions in his first three NFL seasons. Herbert isn't an elite fantasy QB1, but he should at least be considered a midrange QB1 heading into 2023.

  • Justin Herbert May Be More Mobile This Season

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert may be asked to run more this season. During a recent gathering with the media, head coach Brandon Staley addressed the offense and how it can improve, with Herbert's mobility being a focal point. "It's certainly a weapon we need to take advantage of," Staley said while also referencing how new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore utilized Dak Prescott over the years. The 24-year-old had a down season in 2022-23, finishing with 4,739 yards and a career-low 25 touchdowns while adding 10 interceptions. Considering Herbert hasn't surpassed 302 rushing yards in any of his three seasons, it will be interesting to see how things work out with the philosophy change. However, the 2020 No. 6 overall pick, who is in line for a new contract, is still expected to be at least a top-five fantasy signal-caller, regardless of how often he uses his legs.

  • Justin Herbert In Line For Massive Extension

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert has accrued three NFL seasons and is eligible for a contract extension, which The Athletic's Daniel Popper thinks will get done this offseason. The earlier the Chargers get a deal done, the better. Herbert will likely be looking to top Aaron Rodgers' average annual value at $50.27 million per season. It remains to be seen if he'll reset the QB market, especially after he took a slight step back in his third NFL season from a numbers perspective. The 24-year-old had a career-high 68.2% completion percentage, but he also threw a career-low 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while amassing 4,739 passing yards in 17 regular season games. However, Herbert is still one of the best young signal-callers in the game and will be compensated generously.

  • Kellen Moore Expected To Become Chargers' Next OC

    Former Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is expected to become the Los Angeles Chargers' next offensive coordinator, according to sources. The talented play-caller parted ways with the Cowboys on Sunday, but he'll make the move from quarterback Dak Prescott to quarterback Justin Herbert. Moore served as Dallas' offensive coordinator for the last four seasons and led them to an offensive rank inside the top 10 in the league three times. In LA, he'll replace Joe Lombardi and will have an arguably better collection of offensive skill players to work with in the likes of Herbert, running back Austin Ekeler and receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. With Moore now gone in Dallas, it's possible that head coach Mike McCarthy could take over play-calling duties in 2023.

  • Justin Herbert Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (shoulder) underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Wednesday, according to an announcement from the team. They expect him to be cleared in time for their offseason program. Herbert finished 2022 with 4,749 yards, 25 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. He should be viewed as a mid-to-low QB1 heading into next season's fantasy drafts. In the meantime, look for Herbert and the Chargers to begin negotiating the first contract extension of his career.

  • Chargers Part Ways With Joe Lombardi, Shane Day

    The Los Angeles Chargers announced on Tuesday that they have parted ways with offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and passing-game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Shane Day. The moves come after a stunning loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the wild-card round on Saturday in which the Bolts lost a 27-point lead to eventually lose 31-30. The Chargers offense consistently underperformed throughout the season, even though quarterback Justin Herbert passed Andrew Luck in 2022 for the most passing yards by a QB in his first three seasons in the NFL. Los Angeles ranked 30th in the league, rushing for an average of 89.6 yards per game. Their offense also ranked 17th in red-zone efficiency, converting only 54.1 percent of their red-zone drives into touchdowns.

  • Justin Herbert Throws One Touchdown In Wild-Card Loss

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert completed 25 of his 43 pass attempts for 273 yards and one touchdown in the team's heartbreaking playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Herbert and the Chargers got off to a great start, scoring 27 points in the first half, but were limited to just three points in the second half. The first touchdown of Herbert's postseason career came on a nine-yard strike to Gerald Everett in the second quarter. Although Los Angeles escaped this one with zero turnovers, they were simply outplayed by the Jaguars down the stretch. Herbert's future in the league remains incredibly bright, and he will look to take another leap forward in his fourth professional season.

  • Justin Herbert A Top DFS Option In Playoff Debut

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was slightly disappointing for fantasy this year, finishing as the QB11, but will look to shine in his playoff debut against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks throughout the regular season. Although Herbert will be without Mike Williams (back) on Saturday, he should be able to move the ball effectively with Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler as his primary targets in this exciting Wild Card matchup. The 24-year-old projects as a solid play in DFS lineups this weekend.

  • Justin Herbert Throws Two Touchdowns In Week 18 Loss

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert completed 25 of 37 pass attempts for 273 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 18 loss to the Denver Broncos. Herbert surprisingly played for the majority of the contest despite the Chargers entering the week with the AFC's fifth seed locked up. He connected with Keenan Allen and Gerald Everett for scores in the first half and was eventually relieved by veteran Chase Daniel. Although he will finish the regular season with a loss, Herbert enters the postseason with momentum following two straight multi-touchdown performances. For his first career playoff appearance, Herbert will face the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Wild Card round.

  • Justin Herbert A Risky Week 18 Option

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert will face off against the Denver Broncos for the team's final contest of the regular season. If Herbert suits up, he will certainly be looking to end the season on a high note, but there is a chance the Chargers opt to rest their starters on Sunday as their playoff seeding could be determined before kickoff. If the Cincinnati Bengals take care of business against the Baltimore Ravens at 1 PM EST, Los Angeles will be guaranteed the fifth seed in the AFC. With the risk of Herbert sitting for some of, if not the entire game, it might be best to look elsewhere for fantasy purposes in Week 18.

  • Justin Herbert Listed On Week 18 Injury Report

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (shoulder) is listed on the team's Week 18 injury report with a left shoulder injury, but he was able to put in a full practice on Wednesday and should be fine to play in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Denver Broncos. The Bolts must win to keep the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, which is much more favorable, so they shouldn't be resting any players in this contest. Herbert has thrown multiple touchdowns just once in his last five games and sits as the overall QB11 in fantasy points this year, but he'll be a midrange QB1 for fantasy managers in Week 18 with many teams potentially resting their starters. In Week 6 against the Broncos, he went 37-for-57 for 238 yards, no touchdowns and a pick.

  • Justin Herbert Tosses Two Touchdowns In Week 17 Win

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert completed 21 of 28 pass attempts for 212 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 17 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. The 24-year-old connected with tight ends Gerald Everett and Donald Parham Jr. for his two scores, marking Sunday's performance as his first with multiple touchdowns since Week 12. Unfortunately for fantasy managers, the Rams were unable to keep up in this one, so Herbert and other key offensive players were held out for much of the fourth quarter as the team protected its lead. Herbert and the Chargers can clinch the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs with a win next week against the Denver Broncos.
