Each week, Footballguys staff members will share the big movers in their respective Dynasty Rankings. Since the contributors will rotate, please check in weekly. The focus of this article will be on the “why” more than the movement itself. Dynasty Rankings are fluid and we hope that sharing the rationale will help you in your quest to create dynasties with all your teams. The diversity of rankings will result in a variety of opinions weekly.
Philip Rivers - Every offseason there are one or two quarterbacks undervalued in the marketplace. Veterans with a strong track record but a lackluster season are my focus. Rivers is the lead candidate on my board to rebound. Danny Woodhead and Keenan Allen were lost for the season early on. Hunter Henry will enter Year 2. Shifting Tyrell Williams and the other ancillary receivers down a peg with Allen back will help tremendously and San Diego may add a free agent or rookie pass-catcher as well. Rivers had 19 interceptions (second-highest of career) and he was a strong rebound candidate last time he hit 19 or more interceptions (2011). He completed just 60.6% of his passes - his lowest mark since 2005. His attempted passes were at the lowest point since 2012. All signs point to a regression back upward in 2017.
