Justin Herbert will debut with a $83.55 IPO price on Mojo. Share prices are the market’s latest expectation for career Mojo Value. Herbert has already accumulated 15.42 Mojo Value so far, which means the market expects him to have more future Mojo Value (68.13) than any player in the NFL!
Can Herbert still be a value when the expectations are already high? Yes! Here’s why!
Here is where Herbert ranks all-time among quarterbacks through two seasons:
And he’s 10th all-time in the important efficiency metric ANY/A.
Other names on those lists include :
Herbert is in one of the most ideal situations for any quarterback in the NFL. He is surrounded by playmakers. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams were the only WR duo in the league to eclipse 1,100 receiving yards individually last year. The offense becomes even more electric when the spark plug Austin Ekeler is added to the mix.
The offensive line is outstanding. The Chargers ranked top five in sack rate allowed last season. Although they lost tackle Bryan Bulaga by releasing him, the Chargers drafted Zion Johnson in the first round.
The massive offseason additions of defensive superstars Khalil Mack and JC Jackson bring up the entire ceiling of the team to a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
Why does that matter for Herbert?
Not only does Herbert get to accumulate more Mojo Value with each extra playoff game he plays in, but all players who are on the winning Super Bowl team get a 5x multiplier for their Mojo Value in the Super Bowl.
Run, don’t walk…
His historic first two seasons put Herbert on a historic pace. It’s rare to be able to invest in a sure commodity like Justin Herbert this cheaply. While there are a lot of future seasons that Herbert has to play to hit his ceiling on Mojo, if he maintains anywhere close to this pace and stays healthy, he will be a very profitable player to invest in.
