2019 Fantasy Outlook
Long anticipated as a potential first overall pick the NFL draft, Herbert nonetheless returned to for his senior season in what should be a strong Oregon offense. His numbers regressed in 2018, with his completion percentage proving problematic at just 59.4, perhaps due to the Pac-12's strong collective showing on defense. The schedule doesn't appear any easier for 2019, unfortunately, and the loss of lead wideout Dillon Mitchell is a concern, but Herbert managed to throw for 29 touchdowns last year despite the various difficulties. Durability is a slight concern after he absorbed a shoulder injury in the regular season finale, and a concussion before that Read Past Outlooks
Leads team to Redbox Bowl Win

January 1, 2019
Herbert completed 19 of 33 passes for 166 yards and one touchdown against Michigan State in the Redbox Bowl on Monday,
ANALYSIS
Herbert mustered just 166 yards against a tough Michigan State defense in a Redbox bowl victory on Monday. Herbert shut down any speculation he would forgo his senior year and enter the NFL draft earlier, instead choosing to return to Oregon for his senior year. He had much NFL hype surrounding his play early in the season, with NFL scouts attending his games particularly to watch him. He finished his junior campaign with 3,151 passing yards, 29 touchdowns and eight receptions, nearly doubling his career total. He'll enter the 2019 campaign as one of the highest profile quarterbacks in the Nation.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2018
He wasn't expected to see the field much with touted grad transfer Dakota Prukop at quarterback, but the latter faltered and Oregon turned to Herbert, a true freshman, in hopes of salvaging last season. There was no hope for Oregon, it would turn out, but Herbert proved promising. As the team around him sank, he threw for 1,936 yards, (7.6 YPA), 19 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven starts, and that was while playing tough defenses like Washington, USC, Stanford and Utah. New coach Willie Taggart helped make Quinton Flowers a star at USF, and Herbert should benefit too.
If Herbert were guaranteed a fully healthy season and a system under Mario Cristobal that was just as effective as it was under Willie Taggart, he'd be much higher on this list. When healthy, few could match what Herbert could do on a per game basis last year, completing 67 percent of his passes with a 9.6 YPA in addition to posing a run threat. In seven full games under Herbert last year Oregon averaged 49.7 points. Unfortunately, health has to be baked into the equation here, but he still could be kingmaker in most leagues even if he plays 10-11 games.
