|Justin Herbert Los Angeles Chargers|
|931 PYDS | 72.0 Comp % | 102.2 RATING|
Lynn supports veteran QB Tyrod Taylor, but “he was instrumental” in selecting Herbert sixth overall in the 2020 NFL Draft and “strongly believes” in his rookie QB. Herbert has played well so far his rookie season, throwing for 932 yards and a 5:3 TD:INT ratio over three contests. The 2020 first-round pick has a ton of upside and gives the Chargers skill players a boost. Herbert should be rostered in all league formats.
|Drew Brees New Orleans Saints|
|1006 PYDS | 71.3 Comp % | 108.2 RATING|
Brees has a tough matchup on paper here, but with Thomas most likely coming back into the lineup, that should help him enough to put up low-end QB1 numbers.
