Draft note
by John Paulsen
A model of consistency, Rivers has thrown at least 28 touchdowns and posted at least 4,286 yards in six straight seasons. Rivers per game production has only cracked the top 15 once in the last four years but since he always plays a full season, he has three top 12 finishes in the same span. He has posted top 12 (QB1) numbers in 10 of the last 12 seasons. He does have a tendency to throw interceptions, but he has only thrown 22 total picks in the last two seasons, so he’s taking better care of the ball. He represents nice value as the 18th QB off the board.

LAC QB Philip Rivers - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Tennessee Titans
Philip Rivers had a rough week at “home” against the Chargers. I put air quotes around home because it looked like Steelers fans outnumbered Chargers fans during the Sunday Night Football broadcast. He was 26/44 for 320 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, and finished as the QB16.

Rivers could turn in another subpar fantasy performance against the Titans. They are the ninth-best defense against the quarterback position, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4’s rankings expert John Paulsen has Rivers ranked as the QB20. Better streaming options should be available.
