Chargers QB Philip Rivers says his best football is still to come

Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt thinks quarterback Philip Rivers can be really good in the near future. Head coach Mike McCoy thinks Philip Rivers can be really good in the future. And Philip Rivers thinks Philip Rivers can be really good in the future in the near future.
"I think my best football is ahead of me, I really do," Rivers told USA Today Sports' Lindsay H. Jones. "That's being optimistic because we've had a lot of really good years. I am probably on the second half of my career, the back end, but I think I've got a lot of good football left."

Fantasy Analysis:

Rivers is 31 years old, so you should expect him to have some quality years left, although there are concerns regarding his decreasing arm strength. His main problem has been turnovers, of which he committed 47 in the past two seasons. This came after a period in which Rivers was one of the most productive quarterbacks and pretty safe with the ball in terms of turnovers to boot. McCoy and Whisenhunt will help cut down on the picks, and touchdowns should still be in high supply for Rivers with the bevy of stellar receivers he has available to him. He won't eclipse the numbers he put up from 2008-10, but his play will be closer to that kind of quality. Rivers is one of the best QB2 players in fantasy.
