RELATED: PFT’s NFL Week 10 picks
Justin Herbert and the LA Chargers defeated the Atlanta Falcons 20-17 last Sunday, improving to a 5-3 record and picking up their fourth win in the last 5 games. Herbert, who sustained a rib cartilage fracture in the Chargers’ Week 2 loss to the Chiefs, finished 30-of-43 for 245 passing yards, an interception, and a touchdown. The third-year quarterback entered the season as one of the favorites for MVP but has struggled to live up to expectations. Over the last 6 games, Herbert has been held to just 273.5 pass yards a game with 7 touchdowns, and 6 turnovers (4 interceptions, and 2 fumbles). The Chargers’ offense has relied heavily on 6th-year RB Austin Ekeler who is currently tied for the league lead with 10 touchdowns this season. Ekeler is one of two players with over 350 yards both rushing and receiving this season–the other is 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey.
San Francisco 49ers
Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers are coming off a bye last week but prior to Week 9, the 49ers pulled off a dominant 31-14 over the LA Rams. McCaffrey, the team’s newly acquired All-Pro Running Back, recorded a rushing, passing, and receiving touchdown in the win becoming the first player to do so since 2005. McCaffrey was traded from the Carolina Panthers ahead of last week’s deadline for second, third, and fourth-round picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, as well as a 2024 fifth-rounder. Despite dealing with a torn ACL (2020) and hamstring and ankle injuries (2021) over the last two seasons, McCaffrey holds the fifth most scrimmage yards (7,483) in the league since being drafted in 2017.
