Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers announced his retirement Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Is it fair to say a No. 4 overall pick that didn't win a Super Bowl overachieved? It certainly feels that way after all the criticism his unorthodox arm angle received. He made 240 consecutive starts in his 17-year career. He ranks fifth all-time with 63,440 passing yards and 421 touchdown passes. Jacoby Brissett is also an unrestricted free agent so we'll see what the Colts can do in the offseason to shore up the position.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers met with the general manager Chris Ballard for an hour earlier this week, Ballard said Thursday, Jan. 14, as Rivers heads into the offseason pondering his future. 'Do I think Philip can still play? Absolutely,' Ballard said. 'He's going to take some time, and we're going to take some time. We'll meet again in about a month.'
Huddle Up: Rivers will turn 40 before the end of next season, but can still sling it as evidenced by his eight straight seasons with at least 4,000 passing yards and 23 TD tosses. Fantasy-wise, though, he's now at the low end of the QB2 scale after residing in the high-end QB2/low-end QB1 range.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers said he is not sure if he will play next season.
Huddle Up: Rivers likely will take a few weeks to decide but will play with the Colts next season if he decides to continue his career. He posted solid numbers this season and can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he decides to play in 2021.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 7, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Rivers was posted only two touchdowns and two interceptions during the final two games of the regular season. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
