 Dallas has been extraordinary on defense this year, but Luck has been even better. He has only slowed down once since Week 4 and it was versus Jacksonville so you can rely on him once again in the semifinals as a QB1 this week.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Rivers had a surprisingly lackluster fantasy performance last time out against Cincinnati, throwing for just 220 yards and failing to throw multiple touchdown passes for the first time all year. But he showed remarkable statistical consistency before that, so there is no need to overreact. A perhaps greater concern is Rivers' shaky track record at Arrowhead -- he's thrown just two touchdowns and four interceptions over his last three trips to Kansas City, throwing for fewer than 250 passing yards each time. Still, this game sets up as a solid bounce back opportunity for Rivers, as the Chiefs allow the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing QBs and Rivers should need to throw often to keep up with Kansas City's high-powered offense. He's a solid QB1.Luck bounced back from a down week in Jacksonville in Week 13 to shred a good Texans defense for 399 yards and two scores in Week 14. It's a timely reminder that Luck is a matchup-proof QB1, as he'll face off with another tough defense this week. This one will be at Lucas Oil Stadium, where Luck is averaging over three touchdown passes per game this season. While Dallas is a formidable opponent, they did surrender three scores to Carson Wentz last week, and Luck is a good bet to have similar success. He's an above average QB1 despite the matchup.

Threw for 424 yards and 3 TDs vs KC in season openerDallas 10th best vs opposing Fantasy QBs, Luck is mostly matchup proof
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Rivers had 424 yards passing and 3 passing touchdown the last time these teams played, even though he has lost 9 straight games to the Chiefs, he should still be a QB1 this week. Dallas is 9th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Luck has played well enough this year to warrant QB1 status in any matchup.
