While live tweeting Hard Knocks, Daniel Popper of The Athletic Los Angeles explains that QB Tyrod Taylor will likely start “most, if not all” the games in 2020 with rookie Justin Herbert still having a lot to learn. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)
Herbert admitted on the show that sometimes the amount of information he needs to take in “catches up” to him. Without OTAs and a preseason to learn from and build upon, Herbert is already behind where most first-round rookie QBs would be at this point in a normal season. This is music to the ears of anyone who is thinking about streaming QBs this season, as Taylor could make for a fantastic late-round QB option given his rushing ability. His ability as an accurate passer also shouldn’t be underestimated either.
