Philip Rivers has a new home.

The longtime Chargers quarterback is signing a one-year deal with the Colts, shifting the fantasy football value of wide receivers on both teams. Our trio of experts — Sean Koerner, Matthew Freedman and Chris Raybon — analyze what to expect from Keenan Allen in Los Angeles, T.Y. Hilton in Indianapolis and more (complete with projections).

The surprise retirement of Andrew Luck just before the 2019 season forced the Colts to roll with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. He was able to get off to a fast start, throwing two or more touchdowns in five of the team’s first six games, leading them to a 4-2 record.

Over the next nine starts, however, Brissett threw two-plus touchdowns only once while the Colts went 3-6.

Bringing in Rivers feels like the Colts’ attempt to run an offense that was designed for Luck. Rivers should have plenty of weapons at his disposal in Hilton, Zach Pascal, Parris Campbell and Jack Doyle.

Hilton should be a big winner in this trade: Rivers tends to lock onto his top one or two options and pepper them with targets.
