QB - IND
Week 7 Outlook
Philip Rivers completed 29-of-44 passes for 371 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in Indianapolis' thrilling 31-27 win over the Bengals.
This was the best game by Rivers this season as he threw for multiple for touchdowns for the first time as a Colt. The veteran QB and the team are on a bye in Week 7 but should have a good matchup the following week against the Lions.
Colts coach Frank Reich says the team has not considered benching QB Philip Rivers.
Rivers simply hasn't been good this year, and the Colts have a Super Bowl-caliber roster in nearly every other position group. There's a case to be made that Indy would be 5-0 with better quarterback play. The 38-year-old has a 4/5 TD/INT ratio through five weeks of the season. At least for now the Colts aren't considering turning to backup Jacoby Brissett.
Philip Rivers completed 21-of-33 passes for 243 yards and two interceptions in Indianapolis' Week 5 loss to Cleveland by a 32-23 score.
Rivers has been a disappointment so far for fantasy owners as the veteran QB now has just four touchdown passes to go with five interceptions over five games. Rivers has the opportunity for a good game in Week 6 when the team faces the Bengals but he cannot be trusted by fantasy owners.
Philip Rivers completed 16 of 29 passes for 190 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 4 win against Chicago.
Rivers had struggled against a strong pass defense by the Bears and was able to lead the Colts to just one touchdown on Sunday. Rivers should have a better matchup in Week 5 when the Colts take on the Browns and should be started in deeper fantasy formats.
Philip Rivers completed 17 of 21 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-7 win over the Jets in Week 3 action.
Rivers did not have to do much on Sunday as the Colts defense shut down the Jets and scored 14 points. The veteran QB now has three touchdown passes and three interceptions on the season and will have a tough test in Week 4 against the 3-0 Bears.
