5. Philip Rivers, QB, Indianapolis Colts
At first glance, Rivers’ finish as QB18 for the season isn’t too inspiring. From Week 6-16 though, he was QB14 with multiple passing touchdowns or at least 270 yards in nine of 10 games. Over the full 10-game stretch, he posted more than 17 fantasy points seven times with one serious due (Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens-8.08 fantasy points).
Rivers made our weekly nine must-adds more times than I can count, almost to the point of exhaustion. But during an important stretch of the fantasy season, Week 10-15, after that Ravens game to his next tough matchup (Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers) he was a top-10 fantasy quarterback and a bankable streamer every week. I almost made him No. 1 on this list, but top-5 will have to suffice.
