Chargers | Philip Rivers has legit back injury

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 06:17:54 -0800

Updating previous reports, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is battling a back injury that is more severe than the team has acknowledged, according to a league source. Rivers' back injury was quietly added to San Diego's injury report last week, to go along with the rib injury he has been battling for weeks. By now, Rivers' rib injuries are improved, making his back injury the significant issue, a league source said.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers ($6,600; 13.2% of your cap) may be too risky to start on FantasyScore against the San Francisco 49ers.

Chargers | Philip Rivers says he's playing

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 14:56:12 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) took part in a walkthrough Wednesday, Dec. 17, but didn't take part in practice, but he fully expects to play in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers. "At this point in the week I think there's no doubt," Rivers said. TE Antonio Gates said Rivers has been dealing with a "very severe rib injury" in mid-November. Rivers has started 142 straight games, and he thinks sitting out practice this week will help him play this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Between the fact that Rivers ($6,600) is fighting through injuries and the 49ers are stingy against quarterbacks this year, avoiding him this weekend at FantasyScore would be the wise thing to do. Rivers also has lost one of his favorite targets in Keenan Allen (collarbone).

Chargers | Keenan Allen not practicing

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 14:18:28 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle, shoulder) is not taking part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: There's a very small chance that Allen will play again this year, let alone in the regular season. In his absence, Malcom Floyd ($4,300) and Eddie Royal ($3,100) are the ones you want to target this weekend against the San Francisco 49ers. Royal has a better shot at returning profit in FantasyScore's PPR format.

Chargers | Philip Rivers to play through injury?

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:09:40 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back, chest) will try to play through injuries this week with a playoff spot on the line.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers did not practice today but has already said he should be good to go on Sunday. He'll still be a risky option on FantasyScore at $6,600 against a top pass defense in the San Francisco 49ers.

Chargers | Philip Rivers not practicing

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 11:31:31 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (undisclosed) was not present during practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known why Rivers is not at practice, so owners should monitor the situation. Rivers costs $6,600 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option since he will be facing a tough San Francisco 49ers defense.

Chargers | Ryan Mathews sitting out

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 11:30:38 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Mathews has a chance to play in Week 16. Branden Oliver and Donald Brown likely would share work again if Mathews is not able to play. Both running backs costs $3,000 on FantasyScore and could be flex options for owners.

Chargers | Keenan Allen not conceding season

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 07:47:02 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (collarbone, ankle) said he is taking his injuries "week to week."

Fantasy Tip: Malcom Floyd ($4,300, 8.6% of your cap) and Eddie Royal ($3,100, 6.2%) are expected to see increased looks with Allen out in Week 16.

Chargers | Philip Rivers good to go

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:37:17 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back, chest) said he's in good health and ready to play against the San Francisco 49ers this week.

Fantasy Tip: The 49ers have been one of the better defenses against quarterbacks this year, so getting Rivers at $6,600 on FantasyScore might be a little much, especially considering he won't have his top receiver, Keenan Allen, to throw to this week.

Chargers | Philip Rivers struggling of late

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:30:06 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has completed 66.8 percent of his passes for 1,426 yards, seven touchdowns and eight interceptions for a passer rating of 81.2 in the last six games. In the first eight weeks of the season, he had a 68.3 completion rate for 2,213 yards, 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Rivers said the team has been playing much better defenses lately, and his receivers haven't gotten separation as often. He also hasn't moved around well in the pocket with chest and back injuries taking their toll.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers could use a break, and he'll likely get one while facing the reeling San Francisco 49ers this weekend. Although SF has held their own pretty much all year against opposing QBs, Rivers should have more room to throw than in recent weeks. However, losing his favorite receiver, Keenan Allen, will keep his ceiling limited for FantasyScore owners. Rivers costs $6,600 in Week 16.

Chargers | Seyi Ajirotutu to play more?

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:28:14 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Seyi Ajirotutu played in a season-high 41 offensive snaps out of 66 snaps in Week 15 after WR Keenan Allen (collarbone, ankle) was injured.

Fantasy Tip: With Allen likely done for the rest of the year, Ajirotutu ($3,000) should continue to see more snaps, but he's not the one you should want to roster at FantasyScore this weekend against the San Francisco 49ers. Eddie Royal ($3,100) and Malcom Floyd ($4,300) are much better under-the-radar value plays this weekend.

Chargers | Keenan Allen could be placed on IR

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:03:24 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (collarbone) could be placed on Reserve/Injured if the team is eliminated from playoff contention. Allen will not play this week against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Malcom Floyd ($4,300, 8.6%) and Eddie Royal ($3,100, 6.2%) could see more targets this week, although Antonio Gates ($6.800, 13.6%) will probably be the main beneficiary in the passing game and is worth considering on FantasyScore.

Chargers | Ryan Mathews doesn't practice

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 11:38:14 -0800

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: If Mathews is unable to play again, Branden Oliver and Donald Brown are sneaky starting options on FantasyScore, especially considering how involved they were in the passing game last week.
