Week 16 at Pittsburgh Steelers
Philip Rivers had a modest 228 yards and two touchdowns last week in a victory over the Texans. Rivers has been a steady streaming option over the second half of the season and he has 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions over his past five games. He only has three games over 300 yards passing this season, but also only has one game under 200. He's been the definition of a streamer, someone who won’t win a matchup for you, but won’t usually lose it either.
This week, Rivers faces a Steelers defense that ranks third in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. With streaming quarterbacks, you’re typically looking to exploit matchups, so Rivers doesn’t really fit the mold as a viable fantasy option this week. We have him ranked just inside our top-25, making him a low-end QB2 option at best. Look elsewhere if you can.
