Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

For some reason Philip Rivers seems older than 36, but the longtime Chargers quarterback won't turn 37 years old until December and the team's offense is loaded with young skill position players and has a much improved offensive line. Rivers has tossed at least 26 touchdown passes in every season since 2008, but last year marked his second lowest interception total in a season over that span, with just 10. With the team's improvement overall, Rivers didn't have to be quite the gunslinger of days past, and that trend could likely continue for the next few seasons. Still a solid fantasy QB1 for at least a couple more years, Rivers is going to turn the ball over trying to make plays so be aware of that tendency if your league penalizes for interceptions. He's historically gone underdrafted and has top ten upside for those who like to wait on quarterbacks.

2018 Season Outlook

The Chargers are loaded and Rivers will be directing one of the more talented offenses he's played with in his career. Even without Hunter Henry lost for the season, there's enough depth here that he feels like a lock for 4000+ yards and 25+ touchdowns once again.
