Buy Low/Sell High: Quarterback

Updated: Apr 23



Sell High

Anthony Richardson Colts; Reports out of camp are that Anthony Richardson looks amazing and the team is certain he’s fully recovered from his Grade 3 AC joint sprain.  AR only finished one game during his rookie voyage.


Will the Colts pull in the reins?  Unlikely.   Will he change his playing style?  That remains to be seen. 


The Colts offense as of now remains almost the same as it was in 2023, although a few mock drafts give Indianapolis Brock Bowers.  The Colts' run game is a bit of a question mark, as Jonathan Taylor returns from injury (again) and Zack Moss in on to Cincinnati.  The offense could stand to add a play maker or two, but will that mean fewer rushing attempts for AR?


Richardson is still extremely raw, posting a 59.5% completion percentage in year one, with a Quarterback Rating of 45.0. However, he's drawing a king's ransom in Dynasty Leagues and Start-Up drafts, and now would be a tremendous time to get maximum value for the Colts QB before disaster strikes again.  A second major injury could torpedo his long-term growth and value.


Buy LOW

Justin Herbert, Chargers: Jim Harbaugh is back, leaving brisk Michigan winters for sunny California.  Harbaugh has been a winner everywhere he’s gone, sporting a crisp pair of khakis and a career .695 NFL winning percentage.  


However, the fantasy community feels to be souring on Herbert, the sixth overall draft pick in 2020.  Herbert has finished outside the top 10 QB’s in fantasy scoring each of the last two seasons.  Furthermore, the Chargers have cleaned house this off-season, parting ways with veterans Keenan Allen, Austin Ekeler, and Gerald Everett, causing most to pull the plug on Justin Herbert.  


The Chargers are recharging and own the 5th overall pick which is expected to be either LSU’s Malik Nabers or Washington’s Rome Odunze, who will join Joshua Palmer, Quentin Johnson, and a slew of young talent.  The chances of the Chargers making the playoffs this season are slim, which ideally gets L.A. another top pick to help rebuild for 2025.  


Another rumor that has been circulating as of late; do the Vikings trade for Justin Herbert, to allow Jim Harbaugh to draft his college gunslinger J.J McCarthy?  Should Herbert be in the Vikings offense with Justin Jefferson and Jordan Addison … that’s a story for another day.  


Get in on the ground floor here with Justin Herbert before the window closes.
