Will it be Chase Daniel under center for the Los Angeles Chargers in Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Chargers starting quarterback Justin Herbert wasn't throwing at practice Friday afternoon, eight days removed from suffering a rib cartilage fracture vs. the Chiefs.

The betting market took notice, too, and odds are flying with the chance we have Chase Daniel starting in place of Herbert for Week 4's Jaguars vs. Chargers tilt.

Los Angeles was a seven-point favorite earlier in the week, with the total as high as 48.

Now, we're seeing the spread and over/under dip to three and 42.5, respectively, according to our Week 4 odds board.

If Herbert can't go, we have a plan for bettors to adjust their numbers.

Chase Daniel's Value to the Spread

Action Network's Director of Predictive Analytics, Sean Koerner, pegs the difference between Herbert (+6) and Daniel (-1) as being worth seven points to the spread;  you can check out how each quarterback is worth here.

The Jaguars vs. Chargers line has already crossed a couple key numbers, including six and four, and we'll see if the market takes the consensus line south of three.

Koerner also adjusted fantasy football rankings for Chargers skill players, assuming Daniel's under center.

  • Austin Ekeler: RB8
  • Keenan Allen: WR36
  • Mike Williams: WR42
  • Josh Palmer: WR70
  • Gerald Everett: TE15

Herbert gutted out the Week 3 loss against the Chiefs with the rib injury, leading a backdoor cover for those who were able to get +3.5 or better on the underdog Chargers.

Jaguars vs. Chargers kicks off on Sunday at 4:05.
