The Los Angeles Chargers officially named rookie Justin Herbert the starter going forward. Tyrod Taylor is still out with a punctured lung. There is no timetable for his return, but the rookie has played well in the starting role. So, what type of impact goes this have on his fantasy football value?
Currently, he is owned in ~ 25% of ESPN leagues. In Yahoo, he is around 41% owned, both of which should increase over the week. If you are in need of a backup quarterback or have a questionable starter(Carson Wentz), the former Oregon Duck might be the answer. He has some favorable matches up coming up against the Jets, Dolphins, and Jaguars. Now would be a good time for the pick-up. If you have him already maybe you could use him as a potential trade chip.
We will touch on this move and the fantasy ripple effects on the next episode of Fantasy Hour On Tap.
