Considered a raw, wait-and-see type of college prospect, Herbert stunned even his fans and appreciators with a dazzling rookie year. The 22-year-old threw 31 touchdowns â€" and ran in 5 more â€" over 15 starts, taking over unexpectedly after Tyrod Taylor's Week 2 medical mishap. Herbert developed a quick, effective connection with Keenan Allen (96-955-8 over 13 games together), an ideal security blanket and playmaker out of the slot. Unsurprisingly, the cannon-armed Herbert was one of 2020's most effective deep-ball throwers, which bodes well for the Chargers' attempt to open up the offense. Philip Rivers had plateaued after seasons, but Herbert clearly has the juice to make this an exciting offense again. He's no mere caretaker, and he's a clear-cut fantasy QB1 in his second season. And with his goal-line usage in play, he boasts more pure ceiling that several of those QB1 peers.
