The Patriots rank just 14th against fantasy quarterbacks and Rodgers is playing better than any quarterback in the NFL right now.
Rivers is a mid QB2 with little upside playing on the road against a Ravens team that is 25th against fantasy quarterbacks. Rivers just is not playing well enough to justify big expectations, regardless of the matchup.
