Philip Rivers's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Philip Rivers to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 173 projected fantasy points puts him at #18 behind Joe Burrow and ahead of Jared Goff. He has averaged 17.14 fantasy points in his past 38 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 19.3 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#21) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 39%, he is the #25 most highly owned quarterback. Philip Rivers is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #22 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

PHILIP RIVERS PROJECTED FOR FEWER FPS THAN NICK FOLES IN WEEK 9

Philip Rivers is projected for 16 fantasy points in week 9 which only ranks him as the #23 projected quarterback and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. This is projected to be a below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Tua Tagovailoa but behind Nick Foles. Week 10 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#24). He is projected for 17.5 fantasy points.

PHILIP RIVERS IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $6.9K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5.6K

He is projected for 14 FanDuel points and 14.6 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1557 short of $6.9K on FanDuel and -$1058 short of $5.6K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
