Philip Rivers, QB, Los Angeles Chargers @ Cleveland Browns
DK Price: $5,900
Another QB to target right inside the top-10 priced options is Philip Rivers. Rivers has thrown multiple TD’s in each game this season and just threw for 339 yards and 2 TD’s last week against the Raiders.
While this week’s matchup doesn’t look great on paper going against a Browns defense that ranks top-10 in least fantasy points allowed to QB’s this season, they have surrendered some big games this season. The Browns gave up 437 yards and 4 TD’s to Derek Carr in Week 4 and although they didn’t allow Joe Flacco to throw a TD last week, he still managed a respectable 298 passing yards in the game.
Rivers offers a safe floor with room for more in this game and should be a solid threat for around 300 yards and at least 2 TD’s in what could potentially be a high scoring game. If you’re looking for a value stack this week, Rivers and Mike Williams could be a nice pair with Williams being only $4,300 and offering big TD upside as a WR3.
