Justin Herbert Week 1 Outlook - Dolphins at Chargers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

Herbert presents an incredible value in 2023, coming in at a discounted price in season-long fantasy drafts. Last season, he faced numerous challenges that impacted his performance, from injuries to key players like Keenan Allen and Mike Williams to a rib injury of his own and an aDOT of 6.9, the third-lowest among QBs. These factors, mostly out of his control, have kept his price low this year. However, the tide has turned as all his weapons are now healthy, with the addition of first-round pick Quentin Johnston, and Kellen Moore taking over as the offensive play caller. Let's not forget that only Josh Allen outscored Herbert in fantasy points in 2021. Moreover, his Week 1 matchup against a banged-up Miami Dolphins secondary, missing star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, is highly favorable. The only caveat might be his history against Vic Fangio's defenses, where he's had a few subpar outings. But with his newfound support and improved health, Herbert is poised for a strong start to the 2023 season. Locked-and-loaded fantasy QB1 with No. 1 overall upside in Week 1. He shredded the 2022 Dolphins personnel for a season-high 367 passing yards in Week 14 last season.
