Trust = spike production for that player
Justin Herbert (TRUST): Herbert has bounced in the fantasy world the past two weeks with 19.7 points (QB11) and 28.8 points (QB3).
We still cannot do anything about the offensive structure this season as Herbert still only averaged 5.8 yards per attempt last week, but the Chargers have all but abandoned running the football. As a byproduct, Herbert is averaging a league-high 45.8 dropbacks per game. If Herbert is going to nickel and dime based on all of the elements in play this season, at least he is bringing a pile of change weekly.
Herbert has caught two of the best matchups in the league the past two weeks and he gets another one this week. The Raiders are allowing 16.9 passing points per game (29th) and have allowed nine QB1 scoring weeks this season.
Over his past three games versus the Raiders, Herbert has scored 23.3, 21.3, and 27.4 fantasy points.
