Justin Herbert
QuarterbackQB
Oregon Ducks
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Long anticipated as a potential first overall pick the NFL draft, Herbert nonetheless returned to for his senior season in what should be a strong Oregon offense. His numbers regressed in 2018, with his completion percentage proving problematic at just 59.4, perhaps due to the Pac-12's strong collective showing on defense. The schedule doesn't appear any easier for 2019, unfortunately, and the loss of lead wideout Dillon Mitchell is a concern, but Herbert managed to throw for 29 touchdowns last year despite the various difficulties. Durability is a slight concern after he absorbed a shoulder injury in the regular season finale, and a concussion before that Read Past Outlooks
Leads Oregon to Comeback Win

October 20, 2019
Herbert completed 24 of 38 passes for 280 yards and four touchdowns against Washington on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Herbert tossed at least four touchdowns for the third time this season, and the first time since entering Pac-12 play. Herbert isn't putting up eye-popping yardage totals, but he continues to do enough to get the win and keep Oregon's College Football Playoff hopes alive, this week it was an eight-play, 70-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter to take a late lead his team would not relinquish. Herbert and Oregon face Washington State next week.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2018
He wasn't expected to see the field much with touted grad transfer Dakota Prukop at quarterback, but the latter faltered and Oregon turned to Herbert, a true freshman, in hopes of salvaging last season. There was no hope for Oregon, it would turn out, but Herbert proved promising. As the team around him sank, he threw for 1,936 yards, (7.6 YPA), 19 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven starts, and that was while playing tough defenses like Washington, USC, Stanford and Utah. New coach Willie Taggart helped make Quinton Flowers a star at USF, and Herbert should benefit too.
If Herbert were guaranteed a fully healthy season and a system under Mario Cristobal that was just as effective as it was under Willie Taggart, he'd be much higher on this list. When healthy, few could match what Herbert could do on a per game basis last year, completing 67 percent of his passes with a 9.6 YPA in addition to posing a run threat. In seven full games under Herbert last year Oregon averaged 49.7 points. Unfortunately, health has to be baked into the equation here, but he still could be kingmaker in most leagues even if he plays 10-11 games.
