Dynasty & Redraft: QB Justin Herbert, Chargers


Recommended Posts

Quote

Justin Herbert completed 22-of-31 passes for 302 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers' 38-21, Week 17 win over the Chiefs. 

With the 300-yard day against the Chiefs' B-team defense, Herbert winds up with six rookie records, including: Total touchdowns (36), passing touchdowns (31), completions (396), 300-yard passing efforts (eight), multi-touchdown passing games (10) and three-score days (six). Herbert did fall 39 yards shy of the rookie passing yardage record. An unusually refined rookie for any position, Herbert quickly obliterated his pre-draft rep as a conservative passer, not only routinely challenging down the field, but doing so for big plays while avoiding turnovers. Herbert finally slumped after Thanksgiving after two months of stellar play, but he rebounded for a killer three-game stretch to end the year. Efficient without sacrificing explosiveness, 22-year-old Herbert is already one of the most valuable players in all of football, and offers unlimited ceiling for a franchise that felt hard-capped under Philip Rivers.

Looked like a legit NFL QB to me. Went head to head with Mahomes and almost pulled it out. 

It's Mahomes 2.0 for sure. Congrats if you drafted him.

Very happy I got him late 2nd in a orphan dynasty league that only has Brees at QB. Got that hole fixed quickly.

Does seem strange but they're casting a very wide net, think they're up to 5-6 candidates already- the latest is Daboll!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS............

New Chargers coach Brandon Staley has pledged to build his offense around what Justin Herbert does well. 

Which was basically everything as a rookie. "We want to uniquely shape our offense around Justin Herbert because he is unlike any other quarterback," Staley gushed. "When you study the great quarterbacks in the history of the game they've had systems that have been built for them." This seemingly obvious point is still lost on so many coaches. Tailor your offense to what your players, especially your quarterback, do well. Despite being a defensive-minded head coach, Staley is a former quarterback, while he just spent a year learning under offensive maestro Sean McVay. Best laid plans have a way of going awry in the NFL, but from the outside, Staley seems to be a home run hire.

JUSTIN HERBERT QB, LOS ANGELES CHARGERS

Chargers OC Joe Lombardi said an uptempo offense will be "a part of what we are building here".

Lombardi and coach Brandon Staley seem to be on the same page offensively, and it comes down to playing into Justin Herbert's strengths. Lombardi mentions how Herbert is comfortable with playing fast based on his time at Oregon, and Staley has already talked with Lombardi about utilizing a no-huddle offense at times. That would be a welcomed addition to the Chargers offense, one that has lacked creativity and polish in recent seasons. Both Staley and Lombardi have also mentioned how analytics can help dictate situational football (fourth-down decisions, pass/run splits, etc.), something the Chargers have notoriously gone against. Overall, the Chargers' newly assembled coaching staff seems to aligning with a lot of modern-day approaches. The roster is good enough to compete in the playoffs as soon as 2021.

Justin Herbert has been named the Associated Press' Offensive Rookie of the Year. 

Herbert took home 41-of-50 votes, with Justin Jefferson snagging the other nine. In one of the most impressive rookie classes in years, Herbert was in a class by himself. The No. 6 overall pick set six rookie records, including touchdown passes with 31. The other five were: Total touchdowns (36), completions (396), 300-yard passing efforts (eight), multi-touchdown passing games (10) and three-score days (six). Herbert fell only 39 yards shy of the rookie yardage record. Unflappable and far more aggressive than his college usage suggested he would be, Herbert had the looks of a true franchise player, one who will soon be competing for MVP awards. Herbert turns 23 next month.

Warren Sharp

@SharpFootball

worst to first for Justin Herbert:

Chargers 2020 C Dan Feeney allowed the MOST hurries (24) and pressures (33) of any center last year

new C Corey Linsley allowed the FEWEST hurries (1) and pressures (4) of any center last year (min 700 snaps)

also...zero penalties for Linsley

Hate to lose Henry...

Not at that  price. Good player but at least up until this point he hasn't lived up to the hype. Most of his ~60 catches, 600 yds, and 4 TDs isn't going to be hard to replace for less money.

Linsley + Parham (or whoever they end up with at TE) >>> Henry + Feeney
