Philip Rivers's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY VALUE (FANDUEL & DRAFTKINGS)

Based on salary ($8.3K) he is expected to put up around 21 fantasy points, but his latest FanDuel projection is for 22.4 points (a +$429 dollar value). He is 9-35 reaching their expected salary based point total (20%). He is 6-38 reaching his projected point total of 22.4. Even though his projected rank is better than his salary based rank there are quarterbacks projected for more points with the same or lower salary. Deshaun Watson (24.5 FP), for example, is a better option. At $6.5K you would expect 24 DraftKings points and he is projected for 24.7 points. This difference translates to a +$190 DraftKings value. He hit this expected level of performance in 16% of games. He is 4-40 reaching his projected point total of 24.7. Even though his projected rank is better than his salary based rank there are quarterbacks projected for more points with the same or lower salary. Deshaun Watson (26.6 FP), for example, is a better option.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

This is projected to be an above average week for Philip Rivers who is projected to be the #3 quarterback vs a season projection of #14.

Most fantasy players have roughly 30% of their weekly projections deviate significantly from their season average, but he is projected to be more volatile than most. Expect a consistent performance with an equal number of good (1) and bad weeks.

EXPERT RANKINGS (WEEK)

The Scout projections have a higher ranking than the market, and of the 3 experts, two have a higher rank and one has a lower rank. The expert consensus rank is #5. The experts rank him behind Deshaun Watson and ahead of Tom Brady. The projections agree that Rivers should be ranked behind Watson.

REST OF SEASON FANTASY VALUE

Philip Rivers owners are expecting a lot from him, but the projections think these owners will be disappointed. Owned in 100% of CBS Fantasy leagues the market ranks him as the #6 quarterback but his projection based rank is #14 with an average of 21.8 fantasy points per week. With a lower than expected projection rank there are other quarterbacks that are projected for more points that may be available via trade or off the waiver wire. Cam Newton (98 FP), Russell Wilson (93 FP), Andrew Luck (95 FP), Matt Ryan (96 FP), and Tom Brady (100 FP) are all better options than Philip Rivers.
