Fantasy Analysis
Following four straight years with top-10 fantasy production, Rivers’ stats dropped off sharply in 2012. The Chargers triggerman amassed his lowest passing numbers since 2007, plummeting to 19th in quarterback fantasy scoring. The departure of Vincent Jackson and the rapid decline of the 33-year-old Antonio Gates were huge factors in Rivers’ statistical slide. The 10th-year pro also has lost a little juice in his arm, and he is longer an elite quarterback who can overcome a lack of talent around him. In addition, Rivers turned the ball over 22 times and was sacked 49 times. Head coach Norv Turner and his vertical passing attack are gone. New head coach Mike McCoy’s scheme will rely heavily on mid-range throws. With talented-but-injury-prone Danario Alexander, the serviceable Malcom Floyd, the promising Vincent Brown and rookie Keenan Allen in the fold, Rivers has some capable targets. However, the Chargers are expected to feature an offensive line with four new starters, so a huge bounce-back season from Rivers seems unlikely. It’s safer to draft Rivers, who turns 33 in December, as a fantasy QB2. Since the team is rebuilding with a new head coach, this could be Rivers’ last season in San Diego.

Passing: 4500 Yards, 27 TD, 22 INT.
Rushing: 50 Yards, 0 TD.
