We'll see if Herbert can gut it out and play this week. He's been listed as day-to-day, so it's up in the air, but we'll treat it as if he's playing right now. Herbert has been his usual exemplary self. He's the QB7 in fantasy points per game as the ninth-highest graded passer per PFF (minimum 20 dropbacks) with the fourth-highest adjusted completion rate and seventh-highest yards per attempt. This Jaguars' pass defense is closer to the one that gave up 313 passing yards and four passing touchdowns to Carson Wentz than the one that crushed a weapon-less Matt Ryan like a grape. Jacksonville is 14th in yards per attempt and 13th in passing touchdown rate allowed. They are eighth in blitz rate, which won't go well against Herbert, the ninth-highest graded passer per PFF against pressure. If Herbert plays, you play him.

Justin Herbert to be a game-time decision Week 3

Justin Herbert, listed as questionable due to a rib injury, will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 3 matchup against the Jaguars in Los Angeles.

Fantasy Impact

The main problem here for fantasy managers is that Jaguars-Chargers is a late kickoff, and many won't be able to wait that long before making a decision on whether or not to start Herbert. If Herbert is unable to go, Chase Daniel will start for the Chargers.
