Draft note
by John Paulsen
Rivers reunites with Frank Reich, who was his QB coach and then offensive coordinator in San Diego from 2013 to 2015, when he averaged 282 yards and 1.91 touchdowns and just 0.88 interceptions while completing 67.3% of his passes for a 7.64 YPA. Rivers is way past his prime, but Reich should be able to get the best he has to offer at this point of his career. He offers high-end QB2 upside as the 24th quarterback off the board in early drafts.

IND QB Philip Rivers - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Philip Rivers had a forgettable game last week in a loss to the Browns. He threw for 243 yards and a pair of interceptions. Rivers is basically a caretaker for the offense – when he isn’t throwing picks – and is averaging just 30.8 pass attempts and 245.4 yards per game. Most concerning is his four touchdowns compared to five interceptions. The Colts are 3-2, but this isn’t the kind of upgrade they were hoping for over Jacoby Brissett. Rivers has a great matchup against the Bengals this week, but he’s barely worth considering in all but the deepest 2QB leagues right now. He’s a streamer at best and should stay on waivers in 1QB leagues.
