Philip Rivers Has Favorable Matchup In Week 2

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers will face off against the Minnesota Vikings Defense in Week 2. The Vikings defense surrendered over 300 yards and four touchdowns last week to Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Vikings were also unable to force any turnovers and did not sack the Packers quarterback one time. Rivers threw for over 300 yards with one touchdown last week against the Jaguars. He also threw two interceptions, and that hurt what could have been a very solid fantasy day. He threw the ball 46 times, and we can expect Rivers to throw it a lot again against a depleted Vikings secondary. This will give him another good opportunity to rack up plenty of yards and touchdowns. He has a DFS price of $5,900, and this could be a good value pick if he limits the mistakes.

Philip Rivers Looks To Rebound In Indianapolis

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers had a tough 2019 season in Los Angeles, going 5-11 and finishing with the second-worst quarterback rating of his career. He will get a fresh start in Indianapolis, where he inherits one of the best offensive lines in football. Rivers' lack of mobility at his age makes protection even more important. He will face a rebuilding Jacksonville team in Week 1 that ranked in the bottom 20 in yards and points against last season. Rivers has seen a lot of success against Jacksonville over his career, with 24 touchdowns, five interceptions and a passer rating of 119.1. Rivers should be considered an under-the-radar QB1 option this week.

Jonathan Taylor Reminds Philip Rivers Of Michael Turner

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers said that rookie running back Jonathan Taylor reminds him of former Chargers running back Michael Turner. Rivers has also praised both Taylor and Marlon Mack for their elite vision as runners. "Its going to be a tough combo to stop," Rivers said. Even though Mack had his first 1,000-yard rushing campaign in 2019, Taylor is extremely impressive and is the best bet to lead Indy's backfield in touches in his rookie season. The fact that Taylor has one of the best offensive lines blocking for him also makes him a very attractive RB2 target in just his first year. Although the 21-year-old has been a bit of a struggle catching passes in training camp, he should see his fair share of aerial targets as well from Rivers.
