Quarterback

Justin Herbert (TRUST): We did not get a complete runout with a full set of pass catchers available Sunday, but Herbert still bounced back with a strong fantasy week (19.7 points), completing 23-of-30 passes for 280 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Herbert completed a season-high 76.7% of his passes for a season-high 9.3 yards per pass attempt. 

We are getting another great matchup this week to double down on Herbert having his first back-to-back weeks as a QB1 since the opening two weeks of the season. 

Arizona has been shredded of late, allowing a top-six scoring quarterback in four of their past five games, with the lone exception being the week the Rams rolled out John Wolford. Outside of that game, Arizona has allowed Andy Dalton (26.5 points), Kirk Cousins (23.5 points), Geno Smith (20.8 points), and Jimmy Garoppolo (25.4 points) to all score over 20 fantasy points.
