Justin Herbert, Chargers ($8,000) at Texans
Ownership Projection: 6%
It’s easy to understand why Herbert — despite a reasonable price tag — is only projected for 6% ownership. His rib injury and the absence of Keenan Allen (hamstring) zaps some fantasy appeal.
But I’ll still back one of the game’s top talents with an implied total of 25.5 — tied for 3rd highest on the main slate. Houston represents a positive matchup as well, ranking 22nd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. And a banged up Chargers defense -- missing EDGE Joey Bosa -- could turn this game into a sneaky-shootout.
