Chargers | Philip Rivers working more underneath

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is working in a new offense under new head coach Mike McCoy, and he has been throwing more underneath passes than he can remember. Rivers said the balance will be beneficial, and it should allow for more third-and-manageable situations.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers can still be a very good low-end QB1, but fantasy owners will likely wait and use him as a QB2. The key word in San Diego is fresh, and everyone is starting fresh with a new offensive system in place. Rivers was sacked a career-high 49 times in 2012, and the offensive line play must be better if he is to reverse a downward trend in statistics. Rivers' average draft position (ADP) has slipped to around No. 160 overall, which would make him an excellent value if he can bounce back.
