Philip Rivers's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Philip Rivers to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 336 projected fantasy points puts him at #15 behind Lamar Jackson and ahead of Kyler Murray. He has averaged 21.19 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 21 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 95%, he is the #13 most highly owned quarterback. Philip Rivers is expected to come up short of last season's #9 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 WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Philip Rivers is projected for 20.7 fantasy points which projects to being the #17 ranked quarterback. This may be a week you want to sit Philip Rivers. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Tom Brady but behind Kirk Cousins. Week 2 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#14). He is projected for 20.6 fantasy points.

PHILIP RIVERS IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.5K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5.9K

He is projected for 17.9 FanDuel points and 19.1 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$382 short of $7.5K on FanDuel and -$341 short of $5.9K 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.

FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND ACTUAL STATS
