Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 29-of-44 passes for 371 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: It was easily the best day of 2020 for Rivers, as he had a season-best yardage total while also posting his first multi-TD performance, too. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 8 after the team's bye.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers' four touchdowns passes through the first five games of the season are the fewest of his career.
Huddle Up: Rivers has yet to throw multiple touchdowns in a game this year, and he has been held under 250 yards in four straight. He's a low-end QB2, at best.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers will remain the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, according to comments made by head coach Frank Reich on Monday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: "Philip is our quarterback" were the key words from Reich on Monday when he was asked if the thought of turning to Jacoby Brissett had been considered in light of Rivers' recent play. The 38-year-old has yet to account for more than one touchdown in his first five starts with the Colts, and there's an argument to be made that his mistakes are the reason they aren't 5-0. With the Colts looking at a Week 7 bye, it's possible Reich will change his tune if Rivers looks bad again in Week 6 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 21-of-33 passes for 243 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns. One of the interceptions were returned for touchdown.
Huddle Up: Rivers failed to throw a touchdown for the first time in five games, and he has just four TD strikes and five interceptions through five games. He hasn't had a 300-yard game since Week 1, either. Rivers has devolved into a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues. The Colts host the Bengals in Week 6.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers finished 16-of-29 for 190 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Rivers has done a fine job of managing the offense during the Colts' three-game winning streak, throwing for a touchdown each time and a total of one interception while taking only three sacks. He got everyone involved in this one, connecting with nine different receivers on his 16 completions. While that plays well in the real game, it doesn't do much for fantasy owners. As such, Rivers needs to be treated as a low-end QB2 in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 17-of-21 passes for 217 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 3 against the New York Jets. The touchdown to TE Mo Alie-Cox was the 400th or Rivers' career, and he is the sixth player in NFL history to reach the milestone. Rivers also eclipsed the 60,000 career passing yardage mark in this game.
Huddle Up: Rivers didn't do much for fantasy owners, and he was given an early shower due to the lopsided nature of the score, as Jacoby Brissett finished up. Rivers will look for better fantasy results in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers went 19-for-25 for 214 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Rivers was without some of his pass catchers during the game but still had a solid performance. He should have a favorable matchup next week against the New York Jets and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers completed 36 of his 46 pass attempts for 363 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 27-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: In his first start with his new team, Rivers looked a lot like the quarterback we saw with the Chargers in recent years. The veteran is still capable of piling up yards, but as long as turnovers remain the norm, he is a matchup-based streaming option.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers threw nine interceptions on throws that traveled at least 20 yards during the 2019 season when he was a member of the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Rivers has moved on to the Colts and will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with in 2020. He should probably be at least a high-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and could even be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers in 2019 tied for second in the AFC with the Cleveland Browns' Baker Mayfield and the Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes with 27 big-time throws (Pro Football Focus' highest-graded throws on precise downfield passes).
Huddle Up: Rivers did throw for 4,615 yards in 2019, high highest mark in four seasons, but what hurt him fantasy wise was his 23-20 TD-to-interception differential -- his worst since he became a starter in 2006. Rivers now moves to Indy, and his big-time throws prowess should be good news for the Colts' top downfield threat, WR T.Y. Hilton.
