2021 Fantasy Outlook
Rivers is the engine of the Bulldog offense. Not only did he command a 47 percent share of the carries in 2020, he also had a reliable share of the passing game by drawing 14 percent of the targets. Extrapolated over a 12-game season, Rivers would have had over 1,000 rushing yards and over 50 catches. Fresno State brings back a high percentage of its offense and has an experienced quarterback, so teams won’t be able to sell out to stop Rivers. With Rivers carrying the run game and being so involved as a pass catcher, he’s a high-floor player with major PPR upside. Read Past Outlooks
Not returning Saturday
Undisclosed
October 23, 2021
Rivers (undisclosed) has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against Nevada, according to Kirsten Moran of Nevada Sportsnet.
ANALYSIS
It's unclear what happened to Rivers, but the senior running back won't return to action and will hope to recover in time to face San Diego State next Saturday. Due to this, Jordan Mims and Jordan Wilmore will be in line to see increased snaps.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Rivers has been steadily getting touches since he was a freshman in 2017, and his numbers have steadily gotten better in that time. His best campaign so far came in 2019, when he rushed for 899 yards and 13 touchdowns. As a junior, he also added 43 catches for 352 yards and three scores. The touchdowns are great, but there are concerns about a player heading into his senior season without a 1,000-yard campaign to his name. The Bulldogs are bringing in a new starting quarterback and no running back behind Rivers has more than four career receptions. This could be Rivers’ chance to have over 200 carries in a season.
