Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert signed his rookie deal Saturday, July 25.
Huddle Up: Herbert will have a chance to prove he can be a franchise quarterback, but even if he ends up starting at some point this year, his fantasy value is likely limited to keeper formats in 2020.

Los Angeles Chargers first-round draft choice QB Justin Herbert is close to an agreement on a four-year contract worth around $26.6 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Herbert is expected to compete for the starting job during training camp but may be the underdog since he did not practice this offseason. He should be an option in keeper leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers first-round pick QB Justin Herbert is expected to compete for the starting job with QB Tyrod Taylor, according to quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton.
Huddle Up: The expectation here is that Taylor wins the job and starts the first quarter or half of the season. Herbert is a great chip in dynasty, but his single-year value appears minimal with the circumstances rookies face entering the league this season.

Los Angeles Chargers rookie QB Justin Herbert was selected to be the team's franchise quarterback, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. When he'll begin that journey as a starter has yet to be determined. 'I don't want to put a timetable on this young man. ... Does he need a couple of years? Does he need one year? Maybe he doesn't need any at all. I don't know,' Lynn said. 'They're [Herbert and Tyrod Taylor] going to go in and they're going to compete. The best guy is going to play.' With the COVID19 shut down, Lynn acknowledges Herbert's development may be slowed without the on-field piece. 'I don't care how smart you are, until you get in there and get those reps, especially with a new offense and maybe doing some things differently than you've done in the past, like playing underneath the center, that's going to be harder if we don't have camps,' Lynn added. Lynn noted he thinks Herbert is able to do everything, saying Herbert is mobile, fast and has a strong arm.
Huddle Up: It may take some time this year for Herbert to win the starting duties, but it is just a matter of time before the Chargers hand over the keys. He shouldn't be considered in re-draft leagues at this time, but definitely carries dynasty value if you can stash him until future seasons.
