 Faces a beatable Houston secondary but needs to eliminate the bad mistakes.  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Ranked here solely due to extra value rushing yards will accrueWill quickly learn that Keenan Allen is the best receiver on his team  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
 Rivers is going to be in a good downfield passing offense in 2013. DNX (Danario Alexander) and Vincent Brown/Malcolm Floyd make up a great big 3 man WR core. Antonio Gates should have room to roam over the middle. The key though, is this horrible offensive line doing their job. They did not do anything to improve it.  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
Indianapolis gave up the 20th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 16.4.Houston gave up the 15th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 17.6.

Pryor could surprise here with a nice matchup.Rivers could surprise at home, but the matchup isn't great at all.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Pryor can run, but that's pretty much all he can do.Remember when Rivers was a top-five fantasy QB and a candidate to put up huge numbers each and every week? Hopefully Norv Turner (mercifully) having been canned will reignite Rivers and the Chargers' offense. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a whole lot to work with, so the odds of that seem relatively slim.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
He gets the start against the Colts who aren't exactly the top defense in the league and didn't make enough moves to move up into that realm. Their more methodical offense should allow their defense to stay rested which should help, but they can be rushed against and that what Pryor will do best. His ceiling is high with his 4.38 speed, but his floor is low with his decision making. He will throw interceptions, but also will rush for a decent amount of yards and probably see some garbage tim...
