The Justin Herbert offensive rookie of the year campaign hit a speed bump last week against the Miami Dolphins. But not to worry. The Los Angeles Chargers rookie signal caller should bounce right back this week—and his team may actually get a win in the process—against the winless New York Jets.
Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers QB Justin Herbert
Let’s not get carried away; Herbert’s outing last week wasn’t truly all that bad. He still managed to throw a pair of touchdowns and run in another score against Miami. He did throw one interception and failed to break 200 passing yards, which held down his fantasy numbers just a bit. Still, three touchdowns is nothing to turn up your nose at.
This week he’s right back to QB1 status at home against the Jets. Last week, the Jets gave up two rushing scores to Cam Newton, and the week before that they let Patrick Mahomes throw five touchdown passes. Herbert is going to be fine this week.
