Chargers | Philip Rivers expected to play

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:49:56 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers should be able to play in Week 12 despite the injury. He costs $6,800 on FantasyScore but will be facing a St. Louis Rams defense that have kept opposing quarterbacks from putting up big fantasy numbers over the last four weeks. Owners could consider spending a little extra money for a better option.

Chargers | Philip Rivers a full participant

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 15:11:03 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing Week 12's matchup against the St. Louis Rams. However, you may want to look elsewhere for your FantasyScore QB, since the Rams are allowing an average of just 13.28 points to QBs in the last four weeks.

Chargers | Philip Rivers not receiving treatment

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 13:41:58 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (rib) is not receiving treatment on the rib injury he suffered in Week 11, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers should be able to play in Week 12 against the St. Louis Rams unless he suffers a setback during the week. Be careful if considering Rivers for your FantasyScore lineup. He's banged up, and the Rams have been much tougher on quarterbacks recently.

Chargers | Philip Rivers battling rib injury

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 19:34:43 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (ribs) suffered a rib injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders. TE Antonio Gates said Sunday, Nov. 16, Rivers has been playing with a severe rib injury, but "he's been toughing it out these last three or four weeks." Rivers downplayed the situation, and said he is no more banged up than any other quarterback in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers and the San Diego offense has nosedived in recent weeks, and this is a good explanation as to why. FantasyScore owners might want to shy away from Rivers until he starts to look healthier.

Chargers | Philip Rivers injures hand

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 12:41:31 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (hand) suffered a hand injury in Week 9 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is not known since Rivers left when the Chargers were down a significant margin. Owners likely will know more about the injury after the game. Kellen Clemens would start if Rivers misses time but likely would not have a lot of fantasy value.

Chargers | Philip Rivers extends streak

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 08:59:40 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers extended his team record to 27 straight games with at least one touchdown pass in the team's Week 7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He was 17-for-31 for 205 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers and the Chargers will likely be forced to pass often in their Week 8 matchup against the Denver Broncos Thursday night, making him a fine play for your FantasyScore lineups.

Chargers | Philip Rivers amasses records

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 02:38:54 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers posted a 130.0 passer rating courtesy of his 377 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions on 29 of 39 passing Sunday, Sept. 29. Rivers eclipsed the 120.0 barrier for the third consecutive game, which ties the longest stretch of his career. It also marked the third straight game he completed more than 72 percent of his passes, which is one shy of his personal best, and he eclipsed 300 yards for the 35th time in his career. Rivers set a new team record by throwing a touchdown pass in his 24th straight game.

Fantasy Tip: It was Jacksonville the Chargers faced on Sunday, but there is no question Rivers is red-hot at the moment and should be in your lineup. He will have a halo effect on players like WR Eddie Royal and TE Antonio Gates.
