The Broncos are just 17th against fantasy quarterbacks this year and Herbert is averaging 25.76 fantasy points per game. Herbert is a very solid QB1 on the road this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What a meteoric rise it's been for Herbert, who's now finished as the QB7, QB4, and QB1 over his last three games. He's completing 67.4 percent of his passes, averaging 8.4 yards per attempt, and throwing a touchdown on 6.5 percent of his attempts. Oh, he's also rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns in five games. By comparison, Patrick Mahomes has completed 65.7 percent of his passes, averaging 7.8 yards per attempt, and throwing a touchdown on 6.6 percent of his attempts. Crazy, right? Especially when you consider his surrounding cast, offensive line, and coaching staff. Can he continue the magic against the Broncos, a defense that's allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks through seven weeks? It's kind of crazy they've allowed as many points they have to quarterbacks, as they've allowed the seventh-fewest yards per attempt (6.82), the ninth-lowest touchdown percentage (3.70 percent), and are generating a sack on 7.63 percent of dropbacks (seventh-most). All in all, they've allowed just 0.407 fantasy points per actual pass attempt, which is the ninth-lowest mark. So, how do they allow so many fantasy points? They've faced 36.0 pass attempts per game (10th-most) and have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points on the ground to quarterbacks. Herbert has proven himself enough to the point where you start him, even if the matchup isn't great on paper. He's a stable QB1.
