Philip Rivers's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Philip Rivers had a good, but not elite, year in fantasy. He was the number #11 ranked QB. Even though he missed a few games, he played enough to make his overall fantasy rank better than what it is based on average fantasy points where he is the #16 QB. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 26.8 FPs in his first 5 games and 16.5 FP in his final 6 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 21.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 33 fantasy points with a floor of 3 points. Philip Rivers (2019 Season Projection: 4818 Yards, 31 TDs, 13 INTs, 35 Rushyd) is projected to take a slight step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #14 player at his position.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

The table below shows his relatively steady fantasy production over the past 3 seasons, which is a good sign given his advancing age.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2017 TO 2018)

He was the #10 ranked fantasy QB based on total fantasy points. He averaged 21.2 FP per game (#14 ranked based on average). He is holding steady season-to-season in terms of per game fantasy ranking. He is stronger in certain categories which are bolded below.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 18.5 points and on DraftKings it was 19.5 per game. We used his second highest game as his ceiling and second lowest as his floor. On DraftKings his floor was 5.3 and on FanDuel it was 5.3 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 24.6 and 22.7 on FanDuel. He has had an equal number of good (20% above average) and bad games (20% below) on FanDuel, and an equal number of good and bad games on DraftKings.
