Chargers | Relocation not bothering Philip Rivers

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 04:19:25 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is not letting recent talk about the team leaving San Diego influence him about re-signing. "Is the location of this team going to be a deciding factor?" Rivers said in a radio station interview. "I can't honestly tell you that it will be."

Fantasy Tip: Rivers isn't worried about it, and that's a sign it won't affect his play in 2015 either. Rivers is still a solid QB1 selection in most drafts moving forward.

Chargers | SD will discuss Philip Rivers extension

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 23:17:28 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers and the team will have discussions on a contract extension at an appropriate time, but no discussions are scheduled for this week according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Fantasy Tip: No need to panic for Chargers fans. San Diego recognizes Rivers' value and intends to talk about it on its own schedule. Rivers is still a valuable QB1 option for fantasy leagues when completely healthy.

Chargers | Still no surgery for Philip Rivers

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 06:50:04 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) said he doesn't need surgery to repair the bulging disk in his back. "At this point, the back injury is not requiring surgery," Rivers said. "We'll kind of revisit it in a month or so. But everything is improving. I'm back to my regular workouts and running around. Me and my wife played a little tennis the other day. I've hit the golf ball a few times, so I'm actually on the up and up. So I'm pretty excited."

Fantasy Tip: Rivers has been playing it by ear all offseason, and there's a chance he'll eventually require surgery. We liken Rivers' situation to that of Tony Romo, who entered last season around the same age with a balky back. The pieces around Rivers aren't as strong, but Rivers still makes a midrange QB1 in traditional leagues.

Chargers | Philip Rivers focuses on rest

Mon, 05 Jan 2015 15:23:28 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back, ribs) is looking forward to resting and rehabbing in the offseason after absorbing 36 sacks this season and dealing with a bulging disc in his back and injured ribs down the stretch. He may tailor his offseason workouts a bit after focusing on endurance training and mobility last offseason. Rivers won't commit to whether he'll need offseason surgery on his back. Rivers took a league-high 544 attempts out of the shotgun this year, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He was ranked 30th in the league in play-action passes, even though he completed a league-high 82$ of play-action passes for 495 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers played noticeably down in the second half of the season when facing much better defenses, and the lack of a consistent running game didn't help his cause. For 2015, Rivers should be considered a midrange QB1.

Chargers | SD hopes to keep Philip Rivers

Thu, 01 Jan 2015 06:51:27 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers and the team will work on a long-term deal, according to general manager Tom Telesco. Rivers is set to become a free agent after the 2015 season. Telesco noted he wants Rivers to retire as a Charger.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers continues to be a mid-range No. 1 quarterback in the majority of leagues, and he also usually comes at a discount on draft day. He has been a top-10 quarterback in seven of the last nine seasons, which doesn't project to change significantly going forward.

Chargers | Philip Rivers probable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:39:53 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) fully practiced Friday, Dec. 31, and is probable for the team's Week 17 game.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers will play in the team's Week 17 game, but this is not a great matchup for him. The Kansas City Chiefs have been good against quarterbacks all year.

Chargers | Philip Rivers practices

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:56:11 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back, chest) was able to participate fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 25. The Chargers did not practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: At best, Rivers is a mid-tier quarterback option for FantasyScore contests in the season finale. The Chiefs have been stingy (200.2 passing yards against per game) against opposing quarterbacks all season.

Chargers | Philip Rivers is a full-go Wednesday

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 15:23:49 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back, chest) was able to participate fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is tough as nails, and has been playing dinged up for a while. FantasyScore need not worry about the Bolts' signal caller being ready for the regular season finale. He'll be there.

Chargers | Philip Rivers feeling better

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 13:12:59 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) said he's feeling better this week than last week, and he's not expecting to miss any practice time.

Fantasy Tip: That's great news for Rivers ($5,555) and the Chargers with a very important Week 17 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. All indications are that Rivers will play in that game. However, the Chiefs defense has been pretty solid against QBs all year long, making Rivers more of a midrange to low-end QB1 in the season finale.
