2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Philip Rivers had a poor season in 2019, with the lowest touchdown percentage of his career (3.9% touchdowns per attempt). He threw for only 23 touchdowns on 591 attempts, and even worse, he threw for 20 interceptions. On a Chargers roster loaded with skill-position talent, many saw this poor season as the dreaded end of the road for Rivers.

However, Rivers seems intent on proving that sentiment wrong. He signed a one-year deal with the Colts this offseason, and stated that the Colts' chances to win a Super Bowl swayed his decision. He also expressed that he was "aggravated" with the whispers around the league that he was done. There may be some signs that the talk of his demise is misguided.

Although his low touchdown rate and high interception rate were disturbing, he did complete 66% of his passes for over 4,600 yards, good for 7.8 yards per attempt. Those are respectable numbers, and do lead one to believe that he has something left in the tank. The biggest negative on Rivers has always been his penchant for throwing the ball up for grabs downfield, which only works when you are throwing to the right spot and when you have players capable of winning such "jump balls." Mistakes in such scenarios are a major chunk of his interceptions, and there is a chance the Colts coaching staff can get Rivers to take what is there instead of going for the home run so often.

Rivers will not have the arsenal of talent he had in Los Angeles last season, but he will have a very capable group of skill players. Both Taylor and Mack will take some pressure off with their ability to run the ball, and the protection Rivers will get from the Colts' offensive line should be an improvement over the Chargers' line. He has T.Y. Hilton as his new Keenan Allen, rookie Michael Pittman Jr. as his new Mike Williams, and Jack Doyle as his new Hunter Henry. His new group certainly has the talent to help Rivers succeed, but the success of the unit will likely come down to whether Rivers can make the right decisions and limit mistakes. His fantasy value will also depend on his ability to turn drives into points, and limit his interceptions.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury T.Y. Hilton doubtful, Ashton Dulin ruled out
Groin injury for Hilton
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 6, 2:15 pm

Indianapolis Colts
News on the injury front for the Colts - TY Hilton is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. Baltimore, and Ashton Dulin has been ruled out. So, that means speedy DE Kemoko Turay could make his season debut. (Zak Keefer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hilton (groin) has been one of biggest busts in fantasy football the season, failing to to 70 yds or score a touchdown in any game. Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Michael Pittman Jr. will operate as the top three wideouts for Philip Rivers. All three are high-risk WR3's this week against the Ravens.


Injury MRI confirms torn Achilles for Marlon Mack
Injury occurs in final year of rookie deal
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 14, 11:00 am

Indianapolis Colts
Marlon Mack’s worst fear has been confirmed. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test revealed the Indianapolis Colts’ feature running back suffered a torn right Achilles tendon in Sunday’s opening 27-20 loss at Jacksonville, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Surgery is required, which will end his season and perhaps his career with the team. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This was Mack's final year of his rookie contract. Expect Jonathan Taylor to assume the bulk of the rushing duties for the Colts with Nyheim Hines mixed in. Both should excel in PPR leagues as Philip Rivers loves the dump-off pass to running backs.
