Fantasy Impact:

Head coach Anthony Lynn held steadfast in his assertion that Tyrod Taylor was still the starter, but that was before it was revealed that he had his lung punctured by a team doctor, and will be out indefinitely. It will be intersting to monitor how the NFLPA handles this in the offseason, as this mistake by the doctor has likely spelled the end of Taylor's career as anything more than a backup. Herbert was excellent in his NFL debut and looked more like the player many were giddy about in 2018, as opposed to the player who failed to make noticeable leaps in 2019. Give all of the Chargers offense a value boost as long as Herbert is under center.
