2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Veteran Philip Rivers has long been one of the most reliable, steady quarterbacks, both from a weekly and season-long standpoint. Quarterback as a whole continues to change which has meant that old school-style pocket passers like Rivers just don't have the upside that their younger position-mates do. Rivers, being one of the least-mobile quarterbacks in the league, simply does not contribute the "easy" fantasy points that players like Lamar Jackson, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton or the incoming Kyler Murray do on the ground.

This means that while he's a consistent producer who you can plug in as needed, it's very unlikely that he is ever going to ascend to be a top weekly option again. In fact, Rivers is practically a prime example of a player who fantasy owners should be looking to avoid playing on a weekly basis. Given that his realistic upside is capped at a minimal level, there's almost always an option on the waiver wire that could provide a better potential for a big week.

Of course, there are a few situations wherein it makes sense to roster, start and even potentially draft a player like Rivers, even in normal single-quarterback leagues. When you're a team that's taken many chances elsewhere and have quite a few players who are boom-bust, it might make sense to couple that with a more reliable passer like Rivers who might not give you the "pop" games, but will also avoid giving you the duds. It's also a somewhat wise decision to couple risky young quarterbacks like Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray or Josh Allen with a player like Rivers who we know has a history of staying healthy and producing solid fantasy numbers.

The Chargers aren't likely to take a significant step forward offensively this season and their quality defense means that they aren't often in many shootouts, so don't look for Rivers to finish any higher than top-eight at the position. However, he should still finish somewhere in the top half, so there's certainly value in that, especially in two-quarterback or SuperFlex formats.
