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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Kansas City Chiefs
In Week 16, Rivers was 27/39 for 279 yards, zero touchdowns, zero interceptions and finished as the QB22.

Monitor Week 17 news closely because information is imperative to success in the final week. The Chargers have been out of the playoff picture for quite some time. However, at the time of writing this, the Chargers are likely to play their starters because this could be Rivers’ last game as a Charger.

Rivers is in a difficult matchup on the road and the Chargers are only implied for 18.25 points. Kansas City is the sixth-best defense against quarterbacks, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4’s rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Rivers ranked as the QB22. Better streaming options should be available on the waiver wire.
