Fantasy Impact:

After being drafted by the Chargers and playing 228 games over 16 seasons for them, Rivers will start the 2020 season as the Colts' quarterback. It's assumed that he should immediately take over the starting role. At 38 years old, it's obvious that Rivers no longer has the arm strength that he used to possess. He consistently came up short on deep attempts last year, resulting in the third-worst interception rate of his career. The good news for Rivers is that the Colts are a run-first team with a phenomenal offensive line that should give him the protection he requires. He was sacked 34 times last year and threw 20 picks to go with his 4,615 yards and 23 TDs. Expect to see all of those numbers drop as he will work with a more conservative playbook with his new team, limiting his upside and making him less of a liability.
