Chargers | Mixed results for Philip Rivers

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 18:51:03 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 23 of his 44 pass attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins. His pick-six in the fourth quarter cost the team a victory. The four interceptions tied a career high.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers put up good numbers for his fantasy owners, but his four turnovers took off a little luster from an otherwise solid stat line. Fantasy owners need to go another way in Week 11 with the Bolts on a bye.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers has two or more touchdown passes in four of his past six games, and at least one score in each of the six outings. He remains a solid low-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

Chargers | Mixed results for Philip Rivers

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 20:42:08 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 20 of his 47 pass attempts for 267 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers has thrown for 267 or more yards in five of his past six games, and he has at least one touchdown pass in each of the past five, and seven of eight games this season. He remains a decent low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Chargers | Philip Rivers throws for 371 yards

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 22:02:47 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 27 of his 44 pass attempts for 371 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Imagine if Rivers actually had an NFL-caliber cadre of receivers for a full season. He remains a decent low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He faces a difficult matchup in Week 8 in Denver.

Chargers | Philip Rivers loves facing Cover 3

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 11:15:12 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has faced Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll or his protégé - Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley - seven times since 2013. In the four regular-season matchups against those teams (three against Bradley), Rivers has posted a passer rate of 110.0 each time and not thrown an interception.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers faces another Carroll disciple in Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn in Week 7 and figures to have similar success against a defense giving up an average of 297.7 passing yards and 2.3 touchdowns to quarterbacks this season. Chargers-Falcons definitely has shootout potential, so owners would be wise to invest in Rivers wherever possible.

Chargers | Hunter Henry to be busy in Week 3?

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 18:49:44 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry is a "tremendous receiver," according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt, and QB Philip Rivers said Henry's "catches are coming."

Fantasy Tip: Henry is set for plenty of snaps against the Colts in Week 3 with Antonio Gates banged up. He is worth a flier in DFS formats.

Chargers | Philip Rivers throws four TDs

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 00:10:19 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers threw for four touchdown passes during his team's 38-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers has always mastered the Jaguars defense, but this is good news for a team that could sure use it. He remains a solid QB1 option moving forward and is also worth the money in two-QB leagues.

Chargers | Tyrell Williams poised to break out?

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 09:23:24 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Williams is "the prototypical big target that (QB) Philip Rivers likes to throw to", according to ESPN's Eric Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Others may be looking for Williams to take over the Keenan Allen role following his season-ending injury, but the Chargers appear to have other ideas. Travis Benjamin appeared to move into that role in the second half of Week 1 and should share some of those responsibilities with Dontrelle Inman. Williams is definitely worth adding, but his initial role may be the same one Benjamin and Malcom Floyd had before him. Williams should be considered a high-upside WR5 at the moment.

Chargers | Philip Rivers has thrived versus Jaguars

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 11:18:45 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is a combined 80-of-108 for 962 yards and eight touchdowns with no interceptions against the Jacksonville Jaguars - their Week 2 opponent - over the last three seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Without Keenan Allen last year, Rivers lit up the Jaguars for 300 yards and four touchdowns in what was his most productive fantasy day of the season. In their 2014 meeting, the 34-year-old signal-caller exploded for 377 and three, respectively. Jacksonville has improved defensively this season, but Rivers remains a low-end QB1 in this matchup even with Allen out for the rest of the season.

Chargers | San Diego offense headed for another dip?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 09:19:26 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) will likely need to be replaced by committee in the opinion of QB Philip Rivers after the wideout reportedly tore the ACL in his right knee in a Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Last season, the Chargers averaged 24 points with Allen in the lineup before a lacerated kidney that ended his year. After his exit, San Diego averaged 16 points the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The good news - if there is any - is the Chargers have more young and/or proven talent at receiver in 2016. There is some thought San Diego will bring back James Jones, who they cut during training camp, but owners can expect Travis Benjamin, Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams to see more targets on a regular basis. Allen's injury should also lock Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead into their respective TE1 and high-end RB2 designations in PPR leagues.
