2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Jeb Gorham

Philip Rivers was last season's Comeback Player of the Year as named by the Associated Press. His turnaround was assisted by new head coach Mike McCoy and the pair should fare well into the future. Rivers is a reliable option who rebounded statistically after what appeared to be a gradual decline. In 2013, he threw for nearly 4,500 yards with 32 TDs and 11 INTs. This year Rivers will be counting on second-year standout Keenan Allen, a tentatively healthy Malcom Floyd, tight ends Ladarius Green and Antonio Gates, as well as some additional support from a great backfield. Rivers has the potential to surprise fantasy owners once again.

Editor's note: Rivers has passed for at least 4,000 yards in five of his last six seasons. For those owners opting to wait for a quarterback, Rivers is certainly one to target. According to our data, Rivers is the 15th QB off the board with an ADP of 125.55. This really illustrates the depth of the quarterback position. Considering Rivers could be drafted as a backup, there should be no pressing need to reach at the position in 10- or 12-team leagues.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
17.11 FFToolbox - Rob Warner - Rivers production has torpedoed much like the San Diego playoff hopes recently as he has committed 47 turnovers over his past 32 games. New head coach Mike McCoy plans to scrap Norv's vertical passing game and focus on shorter completions with should bode well for Rivers as he's behind one of the weak O-lines in the league. With the additions of Danny Woodhead and potential breakout for Vincent Brown - Rivers could be worth targeting late as a QB2 / bye week filler.

2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
14.01 Bruno Boys - Rivers is far and away my favorite sleeper and comeback player this season. It seems that his 2012 season was so bad that people forgot just how good he was the four years prior. Rivers is currently being drafted as if he is expected to finish the same as last season. Yes, his offensive line is garbage but his receiving corps is finally starting to recover from the loss of VJax. The emergence of Danario Alexander, return of Vincent Brown and addition of Danny Woodhead all mean that Rivers has some weapons to throw to again. Over the final five weeks of 2012, Rivers threw 8TDs versus only 1INT which is hardly exciting but proves that his game recovered late last season. I?m drafting Rivers as a low-end backup (based on ADP) but that?s his floor. This pick has virtually no risk and tons of upside.
