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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Philip Rivers struggled last week against a tough Steelers defense, throwing for 270 yards, a touchdown and a pick. He was sacked five times and the Colts ended up losing a critical game late in the season. He’s been a quality fantasy option in the right matchups, particularly for those looking for streaming help, but good defenses have given him trouble, especially the trio of quality defenses in the AFC North this year.

Rivers should be worth streaming consideration this week against a Jaguars team that ranks 31st in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. We have him ranked as a borderline QB1 and he should be available in most leagues if you’re looking for a viable option to replace a starter who may be hurt or sitting.
