It's always a pain projecting Rivers in divisional games, so to see him post 223 yards and two touchdowns in a great matchup against the Raiders wasn't all that shocking. The Chargers and Broncos haven't met this year, but in the two meetings against this defense last year, he totaled just 192 yards and 183 yards through the air, though he did combine for five touchdowns in the games. With Chris Harris defending his favorite target in Keenan Allen, Rivers will be forced to get the ball out to the other pass-catchers this week a bit more than usual. The Broncos haven't been an elite pass-defense, though they haven't been a pushover, either, as we saw them hold Jared Goff to just 201 yards and no touchdowns in Week 6, though that was the Todd Gurley 200-yard, three-touchdown game. But the Broncos haven't allowed a quarterback to throw for more than 304 yards this season, which is saying something considering they've played Patrick Mahomes twice. Still, Rivers has thrown for at least two touchdowns in every game this year, though he hasn't topped 22 fantasy points since way back in Week 1, so he's almost a Tom Brady-esque quarterback this year. He's a high-floor, low-ceiling QB2 this week.
