Philip Rivers's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Philip Rivers may be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues or may be a decent waiver wire pick up. His 185 projected fantasy points puts him at #23 behind Kirk Cousins and ahead of Baker Mayfield. He has averaged 20.49 fantasy points in his past 22 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 18.5 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#22) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 95%, he is the #12 most highly owned quarterback. Philip Rivers is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #12 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 7 AND 8 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Philip Rivers is projected for 16.7 fantasy points in week 7 which only ranks him as the #22 projected quarterback and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. 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 Matthew Stafford but behind Derek Carr. Week 8 will not be as good based on projected rank (#26). He is projected for 14.4 fantasy points.

PHILIP RIVERS IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.6K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5.5K

He is projected for 15 FanDuel points and 16.1 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1603 short of $7.6K on FanDuel and -$871 short of $5.5K 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

The tables below show projected stats (totals and averages) for the rest of the season and upcoming weeks. Also included are actual stats from the current and last season.
