Chargers | Melvin Gordon finding a rhythm

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 20:09:49 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is starting to find a rhythm running the football and is seeing the running lanes better, according to QB Philip Rivers.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is coming off his best game of the season, and he remains one of the true every-down backs in the game today. His huge workload makes him a RB1 heading into a Week 6 matchup with the Oakland Raiders.

Chargers | Philip Rivers tosses three TDs

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 16:59:39 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed just 21 of his 44 pass attempts for 258 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Week 5 game against the New York Giants. He passed Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton for 10th on the NFL's all-time career passing yardage list.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers had his worst completion percent (47.7) of the season, but he tied a season high with the three scoring strikes and the Bolts picked up their first win, too. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 6 in Oakland against a mediocre Raiders pass defense.

Chargers | Philip Rivers big in loss

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 19:18:26 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 22 of his 38 passes for 347 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers bounced back from a three-interception outing in Week 3, and he has put up decent numbers despite the Chargers' 0-4 start. He can provide QB1 numbers against the right matchups, but a showdown with the solid defense of the New York Giants in Week 5 pushes him into QB2 territory.

Chargers | Philip Rivers picked off three times

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:28:09 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 20 of his 40 pass attempts for 237 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers had a nightmare outing, as he was picked three times, sacked twice and he had another potential interception overturned by instant replay. He posted a dismal 37.2 quarterback rating in the loss. Rivers now has four touchdowns and four interceptions through his first three games, all losses. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers completed two-thirds of his passes, and only a missed field goal prevented the Chargers from tying the score and sending the game to overtime. Rivers showed his ability to lead comeback drives and find the open man. He ranks as a decent QB1 option, especially in weaker matchups.

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 21:26:49 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed all six of his pass attempts for 85 yards and a touchdown in a 21-19 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries decimated the offense last year, but don't write off Rivers just yet. He could be a sneaky QB1 option still on the board later in drafts.

Chargers | Philip Rivers doesn't play

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 20:41:41 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers was was held out of the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Aug. 20. QB Kellen Clemens started and completed 10 of his 17 pass attempts for 99 yards and rushed three times for 26 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is coming off a down year by his standards, but if his receivers and offensive line can stay somewhat healthy, he could bounce back. He could be a great value as a low-end QB1.

Chargers | Philip Rivers commuting 71 miles every day

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 05:45:34 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers is commuting 71 miles each way to training camp from his northeast San Diego home every day. He has a driver so he can do work in the car. Head coach Anthony Lynn expressed some concerns, but Rivers said he wouldn't be rushing out of the facility every day.

Fantasy Tip: It's an unusual setup for a quarterback, but it should be a nonfactor. He had a down year last season with the most interceptions of his career (21), and his 60.4 percent completion rate was the second-lowest figure since he became a starter. He's on the fringe of the QB1 landscape.

Chargers | Philip Rivers not close to retiring

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 17:11:13 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he believes he can play a few more seasons before he considers retirement.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers has thrown for at least 4,000 yards in eight of his last nine seasons and at least 30 touchdowns in three of the last four season. He did struggle with 21 interceptions in 2016 but should reduce that number this season. Rivers have a solid group of pass catchers to work with on offense and can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
