2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
He's no longer a sexy name, but Philip Rivers remains an extremely consistent producer on a yearly basis. The 36-year-old has thrown for nearly 4,500 yards and 31 touchdowns per season over his past five seasons. While he's also typically among the league leaders in interceptions thrown, he actually threw just 10 picks this past season - his fewest number of interceptions since 2008.

Rivers will be without his top tight end, Hunter Henry, who will miss the season and be sorely missed after suffering a knee injury at minicamp. However, Rivers has been practically receiver-proof throughout his career, which is something that most quarterbacks cannot say. He hasn't thrown fewer than 26 touchdowns in a season since 2007 and he's only been under 4,000 yards once during that span. He's also one of the league's toughest and least injury-prone players, having started every game for the Chargers since becoming the starter in 2006.

For all his positives and a presumably high floor, Rivers is rarely an elite producer on a weekly basis which can make him difficult to trot out as a weekly starter. He's not poor very often so you can usually get by, but he doesn't often give his owners the big performances that win weeks. If you had to choose a mid-to-late-round QB to finish in the top 12 at the position, Rivers would probably be a good bet, but we live in a day where streaming the position is a legitimate option that can often out-produce even low-end QB1s like Rivers.

One more minor concern for Rivers is that the Chargers defense figures to be even better this season, which will likely mean fewer shootouts for the passing game to accumulate numbers. This can often be overblown and quickly made up for with improved efficiency, but it's still worth considering that Rivers' total pass attempts could very well be down this season. Still, he's a viable option for those who wait on quarterback, and especially for those in two-quarterback formats where the shiny new players at the position will often be overdrafted, leaving values like Rivers to fall to the later rounds where savvy owners can take advantage.
