Here's the example of a player who's top-five at his position in real-life, but not when it comes to fantasy. You've probably heard it a million times - Rivers has been a top-14 quarterback in 11-of-13 seasons, so you're drafting him at his floor if he's being taken as the QB14. Well, no. Rivers is a very consistent quarterback, but he's not going to help lead your team to a championship. There was just one game in 2018 where he totaled more than 24 fantasy points, and it's because his defense has continually gotten better. He also doesn't offer anything rushing, so unless his defense takes a step back in 2019, he's not going to have much of a chance to deliver much better numbers in 2019.

Philip Rivers falls to 0-8 lifetime vs Tom Brady

Philip Rivers completed 25-of-51 passes for 331 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception as the Chargers fell to the Patriots 41-28.

Fantasy Impact

The divisional round loss dropped Rivers' career record versus Tom Brady to 0-8. The Chargers were simply overmatched in this one, entering halftime down 35-7. Most of Rivers' stats came in garbage time with the game well out of reach. The 37-year-old will be a borderline QB1 entering 2019 fantasy drafts.
