Philip Rivers Aggravated By Criticism Last Year

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers said "at times what may have aggravated me a little bit last year was (critics saying) that I couldn't play anymore." Rivers turned the ball over 23 times in 2019, including 20 interceptions, which were the third-most in the NFL last year. But the Colts think the 38-year-old can still play, and Rivers has started 224 straight games, has thrown for 59,271 yards and 397 touchdowns and has earned eight Pro Bowl invites in his career. Head coach Frank Reich, who worked with Rivers in San Diego, still thinks the QB can be elite. And Rivers will be playing behind the best offensive line he's ever had with plenty of offensive weapons, including two high-profile rookies in Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr. He is 38 years old, but Rivers landed in a great situation with an offense he knows, which will make him a streamable QB2 in the right matchups.

Colts Say Philip Rivers Will Play Multiple Years

While new Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers is only on a one-year deal, head coach Frank Reich says that Rivers will be a Colt for multiple years. That the Colts are planning for Rivers to stick around after 2020 helps explain why they didn't make a move in the draft for a young quarterback until the Jacob Eason selection in the fourth round. Knowing that the team wants to keep Rivers around raises his value a little in dynasty leagues, but he's still a quickly-depreciating value due to his age. We've seen quarterbacks be successful in their late 30s, but Rivers will be 39 this year and learning to work with entirely new weapons after a shortened offseason. Don't be expecting too much.

Colts, Philip Rivers Agree To One-Year Deal

The Indianapolis Colts agreed to a one-year, $25 million guaranteed deal with quarterback Philip Rivers on Tuesday. Rivers to the Colts was expected all along, and now it's official. The 38-year-old gunslinger certainly showed his age in his final season with the Chargers, throwing 23 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He's gone over 4,000 yards passing each of the last seven seasons and is as durable as they come, even at his age. Rivers won't have the caliber of weapons that he did in LA in Indianapolis, but what he will have is one of the best offensive lines in the league. That should help him be more efficient, although his arm strength and decision-making are somewhat in question as he nears the end of his career. He'll be taken as more of a midrange fantasy backup in his new home. Adding Rivers means that Jacoby Brissett, who disappointed as the starter in 2019, will be holding the clipboard for Rivers.
