Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers 'might return to 2018 form' behind one of the league's top offensive lines, in the opinion of Jeremy Fowler of
Huddle Up: Rivers struggled with turnovers throughout last season, but he tossed 32 touchdowns to just 12 picks in 2018 and had thrown at least 28 touchdowns in six straight seasons. The Colts don't have a ton of weapons in the passing game, but Rivers could be a serviceable QB2 with a clean pocket to throw from.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers' signing with the team was officially announced Saturday, March 21.
Huddle Up: The 38-year-old Rivers is getting a change of scenery after a down year with the Bolts (23 TDs, 20 interceptions), and will back in his familiar QB2 fantasy role for 2020.

Updating a previous story, Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers' one-year deal is for $25 million, according to a source Tuesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: It had been unsure whether the Colts were looking for a new starter or just a veteran to help push Jacoby Brissett. This deal makes it all but official Rivers will be under center in Week 1, while Brissett will return to a backup role for at least the 2020 season unless dealt elsewhere.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett needs to make quicker decisions with the football, according to offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni. 'He always knew where to go with the football, and then we just speed that up a little bit,' Siranni said.
Huddle Up: After a solid start to the year, Brissett threw just four touchdown passes over his final nine games. He isn't a lock to be the starter for the Colts next year, but if he is under center in Indy, he's a low-end QB2 candidate.

Updating previous reports, free-agent QB Philip Rivers (Chargers) isn't a lock to sign with the Indianapolis Colts, according to ESPN's Matthew Berry. The move would go against what general manager Chris Ballard has previously done. A more likely scenario is the team brings in a veteran to compete with QB Jacoby Brissett, opined Berry.
Huddle Up: Rivers is going to be a solid QB2 in fantasy, but his highest upside probably lies with the Colts.

The Washington Redskins could make a bid for free-agent QB Philip Rivers (Chargers), according to multiple league sources at the scouting combine, who add that it would take a massive contract to land him.
Huddle Up: Even though the 38-year-old Rivers will get a starting gig regardless of where he lands in free agency, he would be best suited as a QB2 in all fantasy formats next season. Given the presence of Dwayne Haskins in Washington and the amount of money that it would take to sign Rivers, it's hard to envision a scenario where he winds up in D.C.

Free-agent QB Philip Rivers (Chargers) is likely to sign with the Indianapolis Colts, in the opinions of some at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Huddle Up: Rivers had a down year, but he was still 13th in fantasy points at the position - ahead of Tom Brady, Baker Mayfield and Derek Carr, and just below Aaron Rodgers. He could have one of those refresher years on a new, talented team. He'd be a solid QB2 pickup in drafts.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett needs to be seen in a larger sample of work, according to general manager Chris Ballard Tuesday, Feb. 25. 'We did a 2-year deal with Jacoby to find out,' Ballard said at a press conference from the Scouting Combine. 'We like Jacoby Brissett. Love what he stands for. It was almost a tale of two seasons where we're 5-2, he's playing good football. He had the injury and we had injuries as a team and we kind of slid down. We did the short term deal to see what we had. To say we're going to create competition, we're going to create competition at any spot. That's going to be a year-to-year thing.'
Huddle Up: Brissett threw for 2,942 yards with 18 touchdowns and just six interceptions last season, but he was able to lead the Colts to a record of just 7-8 in his 15 starts. It's clear he needs more help in the passing game than he had in 2019, and he should be able to be a serviceable QB2 in fantasy leagues if Indy makes some additions this offseason.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett is a player on the rise, but the Colts will consider all options at quarterback this offseason, according to owner Jim Irsay.
Huddle Up: The Colts have been linked to Philip Rivers this offseason, but the team can consider several options if they do not want Brissett to be the starter in 2020. The Colts have a solid group of pass catchers, so their starter could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues depending on the player.
Posted 2/10/2020 7:14 pm UTC
Impending free-agent QB Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers mutually agreed that Rivers will be allowed to reach free agency and not return to the Chargers in 2020.
Huddle Up: This pretty much confirms what had been speculated since it was reported Rivers had moved from his long-time California home to Florida. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts figure to at least check in with the 38-year-old when the new league year opens, and both spots could enable him to remain a strong fantasy QB2 option with occasional QB1 upside.
Posted 2/04/2020 12:43 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is talking with the Colts about a contract extension with discussions expected to pick up later this month, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Mack finished this season with 1,091 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games. He will continue to be the main option in the running back for the foreseeable future and should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/02/2020 9:58 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent QB Philip Rivers may receive interest from the Indianapolis Colts if he is available in the free-agent market, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: The Colts have Jacoby Brissett as their starting quarterback, but he is coming off a disappointing season. Rivers should he able to find a starting job this offseason and would have some solid pass catchers to work with if he joins the Colts. Rivers is probably a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point but could be a starting option against favorable matchups.

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent QB Philip Rivers' status with the Chargers is uncertain at this time, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team may consider placing the franchise tag on him or let him leave in free agency.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see where Rivers will be playing in 2020. He likely will find a starting job this offseason but may only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles QB Philip Rivers can still be one of the league's premier starters, according to general manager Tom Telesco Thursday, Jan. 2. 'He can still compete at a top-starter level,' Telesco said Thursday, via Daniel Popper of The Athletic. Telesco went on to say 'There's no doubt' the Chargers would like to sort out Rivers' contract before the start of the new league year March 18, when he's set to become a free agent.
Huddle Up: Rivers passed for more than 4,200 yards for a seventh straight season in 2019, but he threw 23 touchdowns against 20 interceptions. Tyrod Taylor and Easton Stick are the other two quarterbacks on the Chargers' roster, but they also have the sixth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and could look to use the selection on one of the top available QBs and move on from a 38-year-old Rivers.
Posted 1/02/2020 4:01 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett is expected to be the starting quarterback in 2020, but general manager Chris Ballard doesn't rule out the possibility that could change. 'The jury's still out,' Ballard said.
Huddle Up: Brissett handled an impossible situation as well as anyone could with the sudden retirement of Andrew Luck. He threw for 2,942 yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions in 15 games. He's going to be a QB2 in fantasy if he's still at the helm.

Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal signed a one-year contract extension with the Colts Monday, Dec. 30. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Pascal become a solid option in the passing game for the Colts this season and finished with 607 yards and five touchdowns. He probably will compete for the No. 2 receiver job during training camp and could be a target in the late rounds of fantasy drafts next season.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) told reporters Monday, Dec. 30, he played through a two-centimeter tear in his calf late in the season.
Huddle Up: Hilton has proved in back-to-back seasons that he is as tough as they come, playing through a high-ankle sprain for most of 2018 as well. However, even though his most recent injuries have nothing to do with his size, a player with his slight frame (5-foot-10, 183 pounds) is always going to be a bit more at risk for injury - especially after turning 30 years old. Fantasy owners should consider him a medium-risk WR2 in 2020 drafts.
Posted 12/29/2019 10:15 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he is not considering retirement at this point and would be willing to play for another team next season.
Huddle Up: Rivers finished this season with 23 touchdowns and 20 interceptions but was one of the league leaders in passing yards. He probably will be the starting quarterback for a team next season but may only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2020.
Posted 12/27/2019 10:58 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hilton has been held to only 51 yards in the two games since returning from injury but has been targeted 13 times during those games. He can still be a starting option in fantasy leagues, but players should not expect a breakout game.
Posted 12/27/2019 10:43 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Rivers has thrown for at least 279 yards in four of the last five games but has posted seven touchdowns and eight interceptions during that span. He probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues this week.
Posted 12/27/2019 7:22 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) on Friday, Dec. 27, was ruled out of Week 17.
Huddle Up: Wilkins has rushed for a TD in each of the last two games and is coming off a season-high 84 rushing yards in Week 16, but his absence means it will be the Marlon Mack /Nyheim Hines show in backfield Sunday in Jacksonville.
Posted 12/27/2019 5:51 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett has had his footwork affected by his knee injury, in the opinion of offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni, who says that Brissett's drops haven't been the same since the knee injury, which could affect his accuracy.
Huddle Up: Brissett has done little over the past month-plus, so the Colts certainly have to hope that there are underlying factors at work. It'll be interesting to see how the team approaches the quarterback position this offseason.
Posted 12/26/2019 10:06 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (thumb) was upgraded to a full participant at practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Rivers is good to go for the game Sunday, Dec. 29, against the Kansas City Chiefs. He should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in a tough matchup against the now-strong Chiefs defense.
Posted 12/25/2019 9:53 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (thumb) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: Rivers has thrown just one touchdown against three interceptions over his last two games. He's a low-tier QB1 against a suddenly-strong Kansas City Chiefs defense in Week 17.
Posted 12/23/2019 3:41 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he wants to continue playing in 2020.
Huddle Up: Rivers is in the last year of his deal, and he had a rough season at 38. It's possible that he lands elsewhere. Either way, he'll be a midrange QB2 in next season's drafts.
Posted 12/23/2019 7:44 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR Zach Pascal caught one pass for six yards in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Pascal has had a few good games this season, but every time you think he might be developing some consistency he lays another statistical egg. Keep him away from your lineup in Week 17.
Posted 12/22/2019 10:36 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle finished with two grabs and 17 yards on four targets in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Doyle should be one of the top fantasy options in the Indianapolis pass offense, but he did next to nothing as the Colts kept it mostly on the ground. It's hard to trust Doyle for fantasy purposes of DFS heading into Week 17 in Jacksonville for the finale.
Posted 12/22/2019 10:35 pm UTC
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted three receptions for a team-high 26 yards on four targets in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Hilton led the team in receiving yards, catches and was tied for the high in targets, but that's not saying much. It was an ugly day for the pass game, and the Colts kept it on the ground frequently. Hilton will look to finish on a high note in Week 17 at Jacksonville.
