Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert won the Pepsi Zero Sugar NFL Rookie of the Year award Thursday, Feb. 4.
Huddle Up: Herbert was the QB8 in fantasy in 15 games in a season in which he was thrust into action unexpectedly. He performed very well under the circumstances and will be viewed as a midrange to lower-middle QB1 in drafts next year.

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 21 of his 33 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown and rushed four times for 26 yards in a 19-16 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Herbert threw one touchdown or less for the third time in his last five games, but he has enjoyed an excellent rookie campaign overall and will have QB1 upside in the season finale against the Chiefs.

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.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert connected on 36 of his 44 passes for 243 yards, two touchdowns and an interception during the team's Week 14 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: After shredding the league for a couple of months, Herbert has slowed considerably over his last three games. Perhaps leading the team to a last-second win will get things rolling again over the final three games against AFC West opponents, which includes a Week 17 meeting with the Chiefs where KC could have the top seed locked up. Herbert threw for 326 yards and two TDs against the Raiders on Nov. 8 and should be a QB1 in the rematch.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed just 26-of-53 passes for 209 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 14 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: It was Herbert's first game without a touchdown pass in 11 outings this season. He'll look to rebound in Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons, and he remains a low-end QB1 despite Sunday's egg laying.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert went 31-for-52 for 316 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Herbert has thrown for at least 300 yards in four of his last six games and continues to be asked to throw a lot during games. He will be facing the New England Patriots next week but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
