Chargers | Philip Rivers tosses two touchdowns

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:00:43 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts for 251 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers was a question mark due to a concussion, but he cleared the protocol and was able to pick up the win. With a blowout in the second half, he received a much-needed rest with Kellen Clemens steering the ship in the fourth quarter. The Chargers travel to meet the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Chargers | Philip Rivers remains limited, could play

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 13:03:58 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) has not cleared the concussion protocol and was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 16. Head coach Anthony Lynn believes Rivers will play this weekend, but that decision is up to the team doctors.

Fantasy Tip: If Rivers plays he'll be greeted by a Buffalo Bills pass defense that has been better than average in 2017. The veteran quarterback is a fringe QB1 if active, but have a backup plan in place in case he's a no go.

Chargers | Philip Rivers reaches historic plateau

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 19:30:01 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers became the eighth quarterback in NFL history with 4,000 career completions after his performance in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the process, he also passed retired QB Warren Moon for eighth on the all-time list.

Fantasy Tip: It's another notch on the belt of what has been a terrific career for the 14-year veteran, but unfortunately for his owners, this hasn't been the typical Rivers season. As it stands, the 35-year-old owns an 87.8 QB Rating, which is his lowest since 2007. Furthermore, he's averaging just over 250 passing yards per contest, his fewest in five years. Of course, with his consecutive games streak in danger due to injury, owners have to wait before deciding to deploy him in Week 11.

Chargers | Philip Rivers limited Wednesday

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 13:09:16 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers (concussion) put in a limited practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not Rivers plays this week could come down to a game-time decision. It is promising, though, that he practiced at all after suffering a concussion in Week 10. Either way, have a plan B ready in case Rivers can't go, especially since he would be in a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings anyway.
