Justin Herbert, QB | LAC

Justin Herbert Looks To Continue Strong Rookie Season In Week 13

Los Angeles Chargers rookie quarterback Justin Herbert will face a New England Patriots Defense that is allowing opposing signal callers to throw for 238 yards, 1.4 touchdowns and has caused one interception per game in Week 13. Herbert is coming off of his first game without multiple touchdowns since Week 3, but he still provided managers with a solid performance last Sunday. Herbert got running back Austin Ekeler back in Week 13 and that should only help him and the Chargers offense moving forward. Even with Ekeler back, the Chargers remained pass heavy with 52 pass attempts. The Chargers have passed over 40 times in six of the rookies 10 starts and it doesn't appear that will change on Sunday. Managers should feel safe about firing up as a QB2 with the upside of a QB1 on Sunday.

D.J. Chark, WR | JAC

D.J. Chark (ribs) was removed from the Week 13 injury report.

Chark was held out last week but will return after a one game absence. Getting him back gives Jacksonville a big-play threat, though the figure to stay run heavy with Mike Glennon starting. With Chark and Chris Conley (questionable, hip) potentially returning, Collin Johnson will be pushed back into the No. 4 role.

Deebo Samuel, WR | SF

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Deebo Samuel (hamstring) "isn't injured" and is "going to be good" for Week 13 against Buffalo.

Samuel's missed Thursday practice was a rest day. The 49ers don't want to risk a setback to Samuel, who's the centerpiece of the offense with George Kittle sidelined. Fantasy managers should plan on having Samuel for a Monday night matchup with Buffalo.
