Philip Rivers Not A Top 10 Fantasy Quarterback?


Philip Rivers has fallen off of the planet! Even in the fantasy football world, he is not getting any love.

Rotoworld put out a couple of lists of Top 10 Fantasy QBs and Philip failed to make the cut on either of them.

Not even a Top 10 quarterback in FANTASY!?! All he does is put up fat numbers!!

Here are the  players that were listed above our Baby Giraffe:

Tom Brady
Aaron Rodgers
Drew Brees
Michael Vick
Matthew Stafford
Cam NEWTON
Matt Ryan
Peyton Manning
Eli Manning
Tony Romo
Ben Roethlisberger

All those interceptions really hurt that fantasy stock and there are some really good young quarterbacks developing in the league right now. Could he really be slipping out of the top 10?

I know what the Bolt fam thinks, but what does the outside world think? Would you draft ALL those other jerks before Philip?

For the Bolt Nation, how many of those quarterbacks would you choose before Philip? What rank is Philip in fantasy for you?

    I would only draft Brady, Newton and Rodgers I front of Rivers

  • Calum

    I can’t wait for him to drop to the 6th and I’ll get the steal of the draft! Muahaha, keep these rankings coming rotoworld!

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

       @Calum hahahah.. would be such a STEAL!!! 

      • Calum

         @epadaon Didn’t work out for me too well last season though when I took him in the 2nd! – Learned to stay away from Chargers, too much emotion involved…

        • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

           @Calum i dont think i have ever had Philip on my roster… i have had Ryan and Gates, but no Philip. I will either take my QB real early or wait till Romo or Roethlisberger.. Phil should be gone by then

        • Calum

           @epadaon Not according to these rankings…. Although I imagine So Cal draft rankings rate PR17 slightly higher than the nation overall.

        • RMainwaring

           @epadaon WHAT?! You’ve never had our beloved QB PR#17 on your roster? Ernie, you should be ashamed of yourself!! lol

    @chargersbuzztap he will make fools of all of them…#GOBOLTSGO

    every year i draft rivers in the first round. i play in two leagues. Nfl.com and cbs. and every year one of my teams goes to the playoffs. this year i almost benched rivers but had a change of heart and then he streaked those last game and next thing u know im in the championship game. keep in mind peeps that no matter how good of a season rivers has, u can pretty much bet that rivers down the stretch will do u justice. i will no longer draft VJ or any other player that has left our Chargers. i will always try to draft four chargers during fantasy. QB RB WR TE. every time i play fantasy anything the majority of my team will come from San DIego….oh and by anything i mean baseball/football. but yeah those are my thoughts. Rivers 1st rd. every single time. he is always a sleeper and this year he is more of a sleeper cuz the bad year. i will never abandon ship . i dont operate that way lol  

  • BrandonReisinger

    MATT RYAN!!?!??! TONY ROMO?!?!? Lol this is just laughable… w/e though just means i can pick him up in a later round! MATT RYAN?!?! REALLY?

    • BrandonReisinger

      I took Arian Foster with my 1st overall last year, and have every intention of doing it again! Seemed like i got 30pts out of him every week

  • MikeTuck

    Love it! Hope all my friends read this and he drops to me!

    Why are the Chargers so disrespected this year? 

  • BoogaP

    Shhh, we should all loves this as BoltFans.  The Chargers organization should eat it up as well. 
     
    We seem to be a much stronger team when being disrespected and being considered a darkhorse/underdog.
     
    I love all the hate.  Now it’s up to the Bolts to prove ‘em all wrong.  I know Rivers will for sure.

  • BoogaP

    Ernie-
     
    I like how you capitalized NEWTON. lol.

  • Chargertom

    With all our new weapons and his passer raiting? Fantasy football must be hi!
