I'd argue that Week 11 was Rivers' best performance of the season, though we can only take so much away from it because, after all, it was the Bills. Fortunately for him, the Cowboys haven't been much better, allowing 27 or more points in 5-of-10 games this season. They haven't allowed a "massive" quarterback performance this year, but they've steadily allowed quarterbacks to finish in the QB3-QB14 range. Of the 10 quarterbacks who've played against them, seven of them threw for multiple touchdowns. Knowing the Cowboys will be without Sean Lee again this week opens things up for their running game, but Rivers is still a solid low-end QB1 this week who comes with a high floor.

Dallas is just 18th against fantasy quarterbacks, Rivers should flirt with QB1 status on Thanksgiving Day.

There were some worries about Rivers dealing with a concussion last week, but he performed just fine once again against another strong secondary. This week against Dallas, he is a fringe-start.
