2017 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-14-2017 by Shawn Childs

Over 11 seasons as the starting QB for the Chargers, Rivers hasn't missed a game in the regular season leading to a 97-79 record. He's passed for over 4,000 yards in eight of the last nine seasons while averaging 30 passing TDs per season over that span. Only once in his career has Rivers attempted over 600 passes in a season (2015 - 661), which led the league in addition to his career best 437 completions. That season, he threw for a career high 4,792 yards with 29 TDs. Twice in the last three years, Rivers led the league in interceptions (2014 - 18 and 2016 - 21). This falls partly on a poor offensive line and injuries at the receiving position, resulting in forced throws on too many plays. This season, he'll have the service of a big play making wide receiver on the outside plus a developing TE. If Keenan Allen can regain his form and stay healthy, Philip will have plenty of tools to post another exciting season. LA tried to improve the offensive line as well. His floor in 2017 should be 4,500 passing yards with 30 TDs. I expect him to beat both of those numbers with a very good chance of setting career highs in both categories. The key for Fantasy owners is finding the right second QB options to play in Week 1 and Week 7 when the Chargers face the Broncos.
