Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor plans to sign a one-year contract with the Houston Texans worth as much as $12.5 million, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Texans quarterback situation is uncertain at this point, so there is a chance that Taylor is the starter in 2021. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Taylor could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert will remain the starting quarterback moving forward regardless of when Tyrod Taylor (chest, ribs) returns, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Herbert basically forced Lynn's hand with his play since drawing a surprise start in Week 2. The overall No. 6 pick in this spring's draft has shown remarkable poise ever since and is coming off a three-touchdown effort in a near-upset against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' vaunted defense last week. Herbert will be a high-end streamer with QB1 upside given his upcoming schedule, including games against the New Orleans Saints and New York Jets the next two weeks.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (chest, ribs) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and has been ruled out for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Justin Herbert will receive another start and has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of the last two games. He can be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues but should be avoided in standard leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (chest, ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Justin Herbert is on track to receive another start but will be facing a tough Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense this week. He should only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert took all of the reps in practice Wednesday, Sept. 30 with QB Tyrod Taylor (lung) not practicing. However, head coach Anthony Lynn has not yet officially named Herbert the starter for Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: If Herbert is tabbed for his third consecutive start, he is only worth a look as a QB2 in fantasy leagues which require two starting signal callers.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs/chest) missed practice against Wednesday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Taylor has already been ruled unlikely to play in Week 4. While rookie Justin Herbert hasn't run away with the starting job, it seems the more reps he gets the more likely he'd be to remain in the starter's seat. Taylor's only worth stashing in deep two-QB leagues.

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (chest, ribs) is expected to miss Week 4's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Taylor is recovering from cracked ribs suffered in the season opener, as well as a punctured lung accidentally sustained when the team doctor tried to numb up the initial injury with an injection. The injuries are not considered career-threatening but Taylor is forbidden from doing strenuous activity for two weeks. Rookie Justin Herbert will keep starting in Taylor's absence and could hold on to the No. 1 job if he continues to play well for the Chargers, although he should not be started outside of two-quarterback fantasy leagues at this stage of his career.
