2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Nov-25-2015 by Shawn Childs
Update (11/25): Rivers has been a tremendous option this season. He slipped a bit after a terrible Week 11, but is still a high-end QB1 option this season. So far he's already completed 288-of-420 pass attempts for 3,211 yards and 19 TDs. Rivers was a tough guy to gauge at the beginning of the season, but has paid serious dividends to Fantasy owners that invested in him. However, with a decimated group of pass-catchers, it's going to be tough to keep up this pace, even for a QB as talented and experienced as Rivers.
Rivers has a 88-56 record in his career. He is a very good NFL QB who makes the talent around him better. Last year he attempted the second-most passes (570) in his career. His lack of pass protection over the last five years has led to an average of 36.6 sacks per year. The increased pressure and no running game led to too many errors in the passing game (18 INTs). Philip has thrown 30 TDs or more in four of his last seven years. In 2014, he had four 300-yard passing games and seven games with three TDs or more. The Chargers would much rather run a ball-control offense to keep their defense off the field. With growth in the running game, Phillip will be an upside game manager which makeS him a tough start from week-to-week in the Fantasy market. If game score dictates, Rivers is more than capable of delivering impact games. His receiving corps isn't elite with Gates another step closer to the end of his career. Philip will be a borderline top-12 QB with 4,000 or more yards and 28 or more TDs.

|12.09||Fantasy Taz - Rivers was a Top-5 QB in 2013 once he got some decent play from his offensive line. If the O-line continues with it's strong play Rivers will finish as a Top-12 QB easily and is a great addition at the end of the 12th.|
