Justin Herbert
Oregon Ducks
2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
Leads team to Redbox Bowl Win
January 1, 2019
Herbert completed 19 of 33 passes for 166 yards and one touchdown against Michigan State in the Redbox Bowl on Monday,
Herbert mustered just 166 yards against a tough Michigan State defense in a Redbox bowl victory on Monday. Herbert shut down any speculation he would forgo his senior year and enter the NFL draft earlier, instead choosing to return to Oregon for his senior year. He had much NFL hype surrounding his play early in the season, with NFL scouts attending his games particularly to watch him. He finished his junior campaign with 3,151 passing yards, 29 touchdowns and eight receptions, nearly doubling his career total. He'll enter the 2019 campaign as one of the highest profile quarterbacks in the Nation.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
