What Herbert did in 2020 was miraculous. There's no two ways about it. To be handed the starting job just one hour before the game in Week 2, then go on to break the rookie record for passing touchdowns (31) is ridiculous. Now, with that being said, he still finished as the QB9 last year while throwing 595 pass attempts, the fourth most in the legaue. Now that he's got a defensive-minded head coach and a healthy defense, we could see the pass attempts dip a bit in 2021, which would certainly hurt his appeal. The Chargers did increase the talent on the offensive line, but also replaced Hunter Henry with Jared Cook, which is a certainly a downgrade. Herbert should still be a solid low-end QB1, but it's tough to see him finishing as a top-five option in 2021.

Justin Herbert wants to 'master the offense,' says there's a lot to improve

Justin Herbert spoke with NFL Network's Taylor Bisciotti Saturday, saying, "There's a lot to improve on. I think if I could master the offense [and] if I could go to the line of scrimmage and have a plan of exactly what we're going to do. I think I can always work on footwork as well, stepping up in the pocket, getting the ball out quickly. There's a lot of stuff to cover."

Fantasy Impact

Herbert burst onto the scene last season like an RKO out of nowhere. The then-rookie was fantasy football's QB7 on a points-per-game basis. Herbert, though, will have to learn his second offense in as many seasons with newly-hired Joe Lombardi replacing the departed Shane Steichen as play-caller. Herbert totaled a 66.6% completion percentage, 4,336 passing yards, a 31:10 touchdown-to-interception ratio, and 7.3 yards per attempt as a rookie in 15 games.
