Chargers | Philip Rivers debuts in victory

Sat, 18 Aug 2018 22:42:18 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers made his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 18 against the Seattle Seahawks. He finished 6-of-7 for 62 yards in his one quarter of action before turning it over to the second-team offense.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers looked sharp in his first official action, and he looks to be in line for another strong campaign. He has a solid running game and plenty of weapons at wideout, including Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin. Consider him a low-end QB1 in most fantasy formats heading into the regular season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Thu, 16 Aug 2018 12:58:14 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers will play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16. Rivers did not play in the first preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers has been one of the more consistent fantasy quarterbacks over the last several years but is still undervalued in some fantasy leagues. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in deeper leagues.

Chargers | Philip Rivers confident in teammates

Sat, 05 May 2018 20:34:34 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers believes they have the "pieces to do something special" in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers might be one of the most underappreciated fantasy quarterbacks, and he's coming off a year when he finished second in passing yards and tied for fifth in touchdowns. He has solid weapons around him, and he's a reliable QB1 who is typically still around in the middle rounds.

Chargers | Plenty in tank for Philip Rivers?

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 10:02:54 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers could play into his forties, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. Rivers is 36 years old and has not missed a game since 2006.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is an iron man and has produced with whoever has been around him. Aside from Drew Brees, he has been the most consistent quarterback in the NFL over the last decade-plus. There's no reason to not draft Rivers as a QB1 again this year.
