So … there go all your fantasy hopes for Tyrod Taylor! But all jokes aside, fantasy football analyst Matt Harmon thinks that while Herbert isn’t the greatest passer, his selection as the quarterback of the future is good news for the rest of the Chargers’ fantasy assets.

Once that happens, Matt thinks the likes of Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry, and the rest of the Chargers’ weapons will have their fantasy values buoyed by the rookie (even if Herbert isn’t delivering high-quality production, he’ll be an upgrade to Taylor).
