The 49ers aren't likely to become a pass-happy team overnight, even though they added Brandon Aiyuk in the first round of the NFL Draft. They also added stability to the offensive line when they traded for Trent Williams. These are certainly not bad things when searching for a potential breakout, but a non-mobile quarterback with a great defense isn't a recipe for success. He's best suited for QB2 leagues.Going to a new team is always tough on a quarterback, but it surely helps that Rivers has played in Frank Reich's offensive system before. Back in 2014-2015, Rivers threw for 9,078 yards, 60 touchdowns, and 31 interceptions over those two seasons. The offensive line in Indianapolis is the best Rivers has ever played behind, and his receiver corps of T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell, and Michael Pittman isn't too shabby, either. He may be towards the end of his career, but he's going to have plenty of fantasy-worthy performances for streamers.

 IND just came off a season with the 3rd fewest passing yards in the league, with 3108. And not for lack of trying. Phil has thrown for 4000 3 times with fewer ATT than what Indy had last year
Kevin Wheeler

 Solid upgrade over Brissett, +4.6% Accurate & Frame throws, -3.4% Uncatchable rate.
