Over the past five years, Rivers has finished no worse than QB #14. In fact, it has only happened once in the past decade. With that said, Hunter Henry is out for the year and Rivers is now 37 years old, so while the floor may still be intact, his ceiling is limited.Winston is expected to be suspended for three weeks, and if that is indeed the case, he is undraftable. If his appeal works out, however, he should be regarded as a top 10 quarterback considering his effeciency last year and the way he closed the season as the #1 fantasy QB over five weeks.

I want very much to rank Rivers higher than this, as I love Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and Hunter Henry, but Rivers can be inconsistent despite his great upside. He finished as the eighth fantasy quarterback last season, and his health has been amazing so far in this league. He'll be a player I draft often if his ADP lets me.Winston was the 14th-best fantasy quarterback on a per-game basis last season despite three games in which he finished under four fantasy points. We should see improvement with the offensive line and Chris Godwin taking over as a full-time starter at wide receiver, so another run toward being a top-10 quarterback should be in order. UPDATE: Winston has a pending three-game suspension which will hurt his overall numbers but doesn't take him out of the fantasy equation. *

Rivers is ageless and he has a solid cast around him. Losing Hunter Henry hurts, but Keenan Allen, Melvin Gordon and Mike Williams keep his floor and upside at solid levelsI believed in Winston last year and he failed me. I won't make that mistake in 2018 so he has to prove a lot but he could easily be a great sleeper
Mike Tagliere

Facts are facts and Rivers has now finished as a top-12 quarterback in eight of the last 10 seasons. He's got one of the better offensive lines in football and his weapons have never been better than they are right now. There's not enough love for the boring low-end QB1. Did you know that if you combined Winston's and Ryan Fitzpatrick's passing yardage last year, it would've led the NFL? Their combined 4,607 yards were more than Tom Brady's 4,577, though their touchdowns (26) were somewhat lacking. Touchdowns are the hardest thing to predict, but seeing Winston's yardage with the weapons around him, big things are going to happen for him. You don't have to draft him as a top-12 quarterback, but he's likely to finish there if he stays healthy.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Annually an overlooked value pick, Rivers continues to stay healthy and churn out 4500+ passing yards and close to 30 TD tosses every year. He's also readily available in the middle-to-late part of drafts. Winston missed three games last season but finished as the QB13 in fantasy points-per-game.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Rivers averaged a healthy 21.1 fantasy points per game in 2017 and the Chargers offense should still be strong in 2018.
