9 months agoSeriously. Stop drafting Philip Rivers. I don't mean never draft him. I just mean that your late round QB target in single QB leagues should never be Rivers. Let's review Rivers' finishes by average ppg over the past five seasons: QB13, QB13, QB19, QB14, QB13. If you want to draft Rivers as a second QB to pair with an upside unknown, I get it. I don't agree with it. But I get it. However, under no circumstances, should Rivers be your QB1 on purpose. Analysts like JJ Zachariason and Denny Carter have proven you can stream a mid to low end QB1. You can consistently and reliably stream a QB that is better than a full season of Philip Rivers. He's the same guy every season, yet every season, fantasy gamers draft him on purpose. When you see Rivers nearing the top of the available QBs, go take someone else with actual upside. Given how replaceable the QB position is in fantasy football, for your QB to matter, he has to break out like Patrick Mahomes in 2018. There is no chance Rivers is that guy. His range of outcomes is basically QB10-14. Instead of drafting Rivers, go ahead and take a QB that actually has the upside to post a top six finish at the position because in 2019, Rivers will once again be a low end QB1/high end QB2, which does nothing for your fantasy team.--Jason Katz - RotoBaller
