Summary

Rivers enjoyed a resurgence of efficiency in 2017, at age 36. With Keenan Allen back to full health, Rivers posted his most adjusted net yards per attempt, which accounts for yards, sacks, touchdowns, and interceptions, since 2013. It was an objectively fine season, one that ended in a standard-league QB8 finish, on the heels of finishing QB12 and QB9 in the previous two. An iron man who's topped 28 touchdowns in 5 straight seasons, Rivers remains a solid QB1/2 option for fantasy leaguers who prefer to wait on their quarterbacks. There's some volatility over volume - Rivers has now seen his dropback totals dip in back-to-back seasons. If he's going to make a run at another QB8 finish, he'll likely have to keep up those sterling efficiency numbers. That's a hard ask from a passer of Rivers' age; historically speaking, he's more likely to regress, if only a bit, back into the high-end QB2 range. (May 22)
