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.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (neck) suffered an apparent neck injury early in the third quarter of the Week 14 game against the New York Giants. He was injured on a sack and fumble, and was being worked on by the training staff on the sideline.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has 2,473 passing yards this season, and he is on pace to surpass Hall of Fame QB Dan Fouts (4,802 in 1981) for the team single-season record.
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.

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.
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 10:43:00 -0700
San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers topped 400 yards passing for the third time in five games this season in Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders. He completed more than 73 percent of his throws for the fourth straight week despite throwing three interceptions.
Fantasy Tip: Two of Rivers' picks came late in the game and were balls he forced into the secondary. It has become clear that Rivers is a solid low-end QB1 play in most weeks in a new-look offense that allows him to change the play at the line of scrimmage. As long as he continues to get rid of the ball quickly and the offensive line holds up, he looks like a safe weekly starter.
