Chargers | Will talk Philip Rivers extension following season

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 02:01:00 -0700

Provided the San Diego Chargers don't reach an agreement with QB Philip Rivers on a contract extension before the season starts, the team and Rivers will likely wait until the end of the year to begin talks in earnest on a new deal. The team wants to avoid Rivers slipping into his final year on the current contract (2015) without a new deal negotiated.

Chargers | Frank Reich's offense will feature a lot of no-huddle

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 14:07:52 -0700

San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich will utilize the no-huddle offense a lot in 2014, and he may even implement the famed "K-gun" system from his time backing up retired Buffalo Bills QB Jim Kelly. Chargers QB Philip Rivers will run a fast-paced passing attack that spreads the ball and attempts to gas defenses to create big plays. He is expected to have more freedom than ever before to make pre-snap adjustments.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers won the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year Award in 2013 for his strong season, and he is relatively undervalued in early 2014 fantasy football drafts. The veteran passer should come off the board in the middle rounds as a low-end QB1.

Chargers | Philip Rivers has trust in Vincent Brown

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:56:32 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has been able to trust WR Vincent Brown on contested catches this season. "I've thrown Vincent Brown a bunch of those balls," Rivers said. "It's trusting that he's going to come in there, and he's going to go up high and make a good, tough, catch." Brown is tied for third on the team with 26 catches this year.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's precise route-running skills have endeared him to Rivers, and he's the QB's go-to guy when a tough catch is needed. Brown isn't putting up consistent numbers week in and week out, though, making him a frustrating lineup decision. He's more valuable in standard formats as a flex player.

Raiders | Terrelle Pryor making great strides

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 20:59:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor has posted a passer rating of 97.6, which ranks behind only Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan. His completion percentage of 68.3 trails only Manning, Rivers, Romo, Brees and Ryan, and he has a 72.7 completion percentage in the pocket, which is fourth-best in the NFL. "His mechanics have really improved," head coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday, Oct. 9. "He's got a good presence in the pocket, yet can get out and make plays. He's always been a great athlete, but he's getting better as a quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has emerged as a low-end No. 1 fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. He has surprised more than any other fantasy quarterback to this point, as far as success. There are plenty who have surprised by being disappointing.
