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 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Minnesota Vikings
In Week 14, Rivers had a highly efficient performance and finished as the QB7. It was the first time this season Rivers finished above the QB9 mark. He was 16/22 for 314 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Not throwing an interception was truly shocking considering he had thrown eight interceptions in his previous three games combined.

Rivers broke out last week but it may have been a one and done performance. He is in play in two-quarterback leagues but trusting him in the semifinals of single quarterback leagues could burn fantasy managers. The Vikings are eighteenth best against quarterbacks, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4’s rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Rivers ranked as a low-end QB2.
