Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Justin Herbert finished third in touchdowns and fifth in PFF passing grade (91.8) from a clean pocket in 2021. The Bolts quarterback also wrapped up the season as PFF's third-highest-graded quarterback overall, third in fantasy points per game (22.7) and fifth in expected fantasy points per game (21.7) The Los Angeles Chargers signal-caller is a certified stud - a top-five, elite-tier fantasy quarterback in 2022. Only Tom Brady and Josh Allen posted as many top-5 weeks as Herbert did last season. He and Brady led the NFL with nine 300-yard passing games. Since entering the NFL in 2020, Herbert has thrown for 300-plus yards in 53% of his games played. Even if his rushing doesn't stack up with the league's elite, Herbert's cannon provides almost everything he needs to close the gap.Lamar Jackson had a season to forget in 2021, as he dealt with a plethora of injuries/illnesses and regressed immensely as a passer. Two key metrics at PFF that are important to analyze for QBs are performance in a clean pocket and throwing at the intermediate level. Jackson ranked 28th in passer rating from a clean pocket (90.4) and 22nd in PFF passing grade at the intermediate level (70.0). Despite all his shortcomings as a passer, Jackson still finished the season second in expected fantasy points per game (23.8) and seventh in fantasy points per game (21.3). His expected fantasy point per game output marked the highest of his career thanks to the Ravens' willingness to throw more in 2021. From 2019-2020, Jackson had 37 or more passing attempts in a game only four times. He did so five times in 2021, with Baltimore throwing at a 60% clip. However, I would not anticipate the pass-heavy approach to continue into 2022. Their philosophical change on offense was forced out of necessity based on the injuries. But a lack of passing doesn't impact Jackson they way it does most other QBs with his greatest fantasy asset being his legs. Jackson may never recapture his 2019 rare MVP form when he averaged north of 28 fantasy points per game, but a 22-point per game average seems like his norm based on his last two years of fantasy production. In 2020, he led all QBs in fantasy points per dropback. That cements him as a clear-cut top-5 fantasy QB.

Love everything about him and his receiving core. Same coaching staff (I obviously love OC, Joe Lomardi), and the offensive line is solid. Herbert will be in store for another strong fantasy output as they drop back to pass around 40+ times a game.Greg Roman won't limit Lamar's role in the running game. Blindside LT, Ronnie Stanley is back "healthy". Let's roll!

 Now they trade away Marquise Brown... Lamar's among the most overrated in fantasy IMO
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
There was no sophomore slump for Herbert, who was QB9 in fantasy scoring as a rookie and finished QB2 in 2021 despite getting a new offensive coordinator and new system. Consistently productive, Herbert either threw multiple TD passes or had 300+ passing yards in 15 of 17 starts last season. He has a howitzer for an arm and adds value with his legs. Expect the ascent to continue.RB injuries that diminished the Ravens' running game and CB injuries that damaged the Baltimore defense translated to increased passing volume for Jackson in 2021, but it didn't boost his fantasy value because his TD production cratered. Jackson is arguably the best running QB of all time. His rushing yardage is bankable, and he won't have another season with only two TD runs. Expect an increase in TD rate, a decrease in passing volume and another season in which he averages 20+ fantasy points per game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Herbert finished the 2021 season with 7 straight games of finishing as a Top-12 fantasy quarterback and the sky is the limit as he enters his third year in the NFL. He is a elite QB1 in 2022.Jackson did miss 4 games this year, but he also made strides as a passer averaging 240.2 passing yards per game. His fantasy value is still tied to his 767 yards rushing and 2 rushing TDs. As long as he runs as much as he does, he will always be in the QB1 discussion.
