Justin Herbert’s rolling thunder Rookie of the Year rolling thunder tour continues this week with a home game against the Las Vegas Raiders. And while the Chargers have effectively played themselves out of playoff contention this year, Herbert’s incredible play is giving fans hope for the future and fantasy football players a sure-handed starter each week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers QB Justin Herbert

Herbert now has 13 touchdowns in his last four games, with at least 27 fantasy points in each of those starts. Last week in a loss to Denver, Herbert had three touchdowns and two picks, his first interceptions in two games. He should keep on rolling this week.

The Raiders have allowed opposing quarterback to throw 11 touchdowns this season, while only managing to intercept them three times. They allowed eight touchdowns in three games before holding Baker Mayfield to zero in last week’s game in Cleveland, with a lot of help from the weather.

Herbert is quickly becoming an every-week option at quarterback, and this week’s game promises big points.
