Oregon Ducks
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
Throws two touchdowns in win

October 12, 2019
Herbert completed 18 of 32 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns in a win against Colorado on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Herbert actually completed a season low 56 percent of his passes in the game, but the Oregon running game once again turned out a strong showing and the defense smothered Colorado and continually put the offense in a position to succeed. Herbert has posted an impressive 17-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio this season, and has multiple touchdown passes in four of his six games this year. However the two single touchdown games came against the two toughest defenses he's faced this year in Auburn and California. He'll face another tough match up next week against Washington.

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.
