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.

Chargers | Philip Rivers' injury not career-threatening

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 13:40:45 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back), who is playing with a bulging disc in his back, isn't dealing with a career-threatening injury if he continues to play, according to head coach Mike McCoy. Rivers is expected to play in Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he may sit out of practice Monday, Dec. 22, and Tuesday, Dec. 23, to rest.

Fantasy Tip: We fully expect Rivers ($5,555) to be on the field in this very important season finale against the Chiefs. Despite a monster second half in Week 16, Rivers was looking quite bad for the third straight week. Against KC in Week 17, Rivers could struggle again, making him a weaker QB1 for FantasyScore lineups.

Chargers | Philip Rivers will play in Week 17

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 11:14:10 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) will play Sunday, Dec. 28, according to head coach Mike McCoy. Rivers has been dealing with a bulging disk in his back.

Fantasy Tip: For those still in the fantasy playoffs, Rivers has a terrible matchup facing the Kansas City Chiefs next week. They are second to the Seattle Seahawks in passing yards allowed per game (214.3). Plus, Keenan Allen, Rivers' best receiving option, could still be sitting.

Chargers | Philip Rivers has bulging disk

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 08:09:25 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is playing through a bulging disk in his lower back, according to sources. He may require offseason surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers had a good game in Week 16. He'll face off with the Chiefs in Kansas City in Week 17 and should be a mid-rate QB1 on FantasyScore.

Chargers | Philip Rivers good to go

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 16:15:37 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is active Saturday, Dec. 20, for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers ($6,600; 13.2% of your cap) is an iffy start against the San Francisco 49ers with a number of skill-position players out.

Chargers | Philip Rivers probable

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:04:24 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) fully practiced Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for the team's Week 16 game.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers will be good to go in Week 16, but he is not a strong play this week as he deals with a back injury and faces an extremely talented San Francisco defense.

Chargers | Philip Rivers ready for Saturday

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 20:20:01 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) looked good throwing the ball in the practice Thursday, Dec. 18, according to head coach Mike McCoy. "Philip had an outstanding day," McCoy said. "A ball did not hit the ground in all the throws he made today. Philip was Philip, so he'll be ready to roll."

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Rivers will suit up in Week 16, but he has struggled in his last two starts and isn't a smart play at FantasyScore as he deals with an injured back and faces the third-ranked pass defense of the San Francisco 49ers.
