Week 3 Rankings

Justin Herbert Note

Justin Herbert seemed to be in a prime spot to explode last week against the Cowboys, but the game turned into more of a defensive duel than many anticipated. The BettingPros Consensus Over/Under was set at 54.5 points and only 37 total were scored. Herbert struggled to take care of the football and had two interceptions to only one touchdown, but he did salvage his fantasy output with 338 passing yards. (Fun fact: Herbert had 337 yards passing in week one and 338 in week two). On the season, Herbert has now thrown only two touchdowns to three interceptions, which is a huge concern for fantasy managers that drafted him as a top-8 QB. Up against Kansas City, who have forced three interceptions so far on the season, there are reasons to be skeptical about Herbert returning top-12 value. We need to see something different from Herbert here quickly, otherwise fantasy managers are going to start having to look for a better option out there. He can be viewed as a high-end QB2 this week.
