Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 31-of-41 passes for 338 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he also ran for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Herbert has been consistent, throwing for 337 yards and a score last week while running four times, and he threw for 338 yards, one score with four rushes in Week 2. He is a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 31-of-47 passes for 337 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a Week 1 road win against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Herbert was impressive last season during his rookie campaign, and he has picked right up where he left off with a nice road effort. The one interception he threw was just a really nice play, too, and not an egregious miscue. He did nothing to affect his status as a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues. The Bolts are back at it against the Dallas Cowboys in the home opener at SoFi Stadium in Week 2.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert is going to have the offense 'run through' him this season, according to head coach Brandon Staley. 'I wanted him to make it work and I think that's what's been fun to sort of get started,' Staley said.
Huddle Up: Herbert put together an impressive rookie campaign, and it sounds like the Chargers are ready to give him even more responsibility in 2021. He should at least deliver low-end QB1 production.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert faces the challenge of adapting to a new coaching staff , including new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, in his second season.
Huddle Up: Herbert is coming off one of the more impressive rookie QB seasons in recent memory, finishing seventh in average fantasy points per game (26.3), but does face the transition to a new staff -- a situation that has hindered or derailed the development of many young promising QBs. The majority of analysts, though, are banking on Herbert's talent shining through, and he's a low-end QB1 consideration in drafts this summer.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert was pressured on 230 dropbacks in 2020, the second most of any quarterback, and he recorded a league-best 99.4 passer rating on those plays.
Huddle Up: Herbert was one of the biggest surprises of the 2020 season, turning in a QB1 campaign as a rookie. A sophomore slump is always possible, but his poise under pressure suggests he is more than capable of delivering a repeat performance next year.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 22 of 32 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, Dec. 17. He also ran four times for 14 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Even with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams on snap counts due to injury, Herbert took advantage of a Raiders secondary that struggled to cover anyone throughout Thursday night. The rookie's big game almost came crashing down in overtime when he fumbled on the goalline, but Gabe Nabers recovered it and Herbert punched it in for the game-winning score on the next snap. He should be a QB1 against Denver in Week 16.
