Justin Herbert has been stellar so far this season since taking over for Tyrod Taylor in Week 2. The Chargers gave him the start and never looked back as he has cruised along with a 24.3 fantasy point per game average. Herbert and the Chargers head to Buffalo this weekend to take on a defense that has allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Is there any reason to doubt adding Herbert to your starting lineup? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers QB Justin Herbert

Justin Herbert has scored three or more touchdowns in five of the last seven games and will look to continue this streak in Week 12. The Bills have allowed 15 passing touchdowns and six rushing touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks so far this season. With a fully healthy receiving corps and a banged up backfield, the Chargers may need to look to get things done through the air this weekend and, per recent history, Herbert seems up to the task. Fire him up as a QB1 this weekend.
