RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Rivers started six games for the Giants last season, but is expected to take a larger role as he enters the upcoming season as the team's starting strong side linebacker.

2012

Should fill a reserve outside linebacker role, but the former first-round pick has upside should Michael Boley or Mathias Kiwanuka go down. Of course, that would entail Rivers finally staying healthy.

2009

Rivers' 2008 season ended in Week 7 when the Steelers' Hines Ward broke his jaw with a vicious (but legal) block. Before Rivers suffered his season-ending jaw injury, he was among the team leaders in tackles (50) and also had an interception. He participated in OTA's and should be ready for training camp. He should be a pretty valuable IDP next season.

2008

The Bengals picked Rivers with the ninth overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft and he is expected to be inserted into the starting lineup immediately. He can play either inside or outside, so expect the versatile rookie to receive plenty of playing time.
