Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 26 of 43 passes for 398 yards and four touchdowns during the team's Week 5 win over the Cleveland Browns. Herbert also ran four times for 29 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: After dominating the Bears and Vikings in successive weeks, the Browns had no answers for Herbert on Sunday. The second-year QB found open receivers all over the field, and when he was forced to run he showed some speed and elusiveness. Herbert has been dialed in over the last three games, throwing 11 touchdown passes without an interception, and should remain in your starting lineup in Week 6 against the Ravens.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert (hand) left the stadium with his right hand wrapped in ice Sunday, Sept. 26, but he's expected to be OK.
Huddle Up: Watch this closely during the week. Herbert is 12th in fantasy points at the position after three games and will continue to be a mid-to-low QB1 in fantasy.

Huddle Up: Herbert tied a career high with the four TD strikes, as he also accomplished the feat Oct. 12, 2020 last season in a Monday night game in New Orleans.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert has thrown for more than 330 yards in each of the first two games of 2021, and his 70.5 completion percentage ranks third among the 12 quarterbacks with more than 70 pass attempts this year.
Huddle Up: With just two touchdowns compared to three interceptions, Herbert has been a disappointment for fantasy owners thus far. However, his other numbers suggest better days are ahead, and the Chargers appear to be willing to let him air it out early and often. He should be in starting lineups in Week 3 against a struggling Kansas City defense.

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.
