|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.

|Chargers | Keenan Allen calls Richard Sherman normal|
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 10:39:27 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen, who caught five passes for 55 yards in the team's Week 2 win over the Seattle Seahawks, called Seahawks CB Richard Sherman "just a normal guy." QB Philip Rivers was 5-for-5 for 60 yards while throwing to receivers that Sherman was covering.

|Chargers | Philip Rivers accomplishes rarity|
Sun, 14 Sep 2014 16:48:43 -0700
San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 28 of his 37 pass attempts for 284 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 win against the Seattle Seahawks. He is the first opposing quarterback since Week 8 of the 2012 (Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford) to throw for three or more touchdown passes against Seattle.

|Chargers | Philip Rivers won't avoid Richard Sherman|
Fri, 12 Sep 2014 10:07:17 -0700
San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers doesn't plan on avoiding Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman in Week 2. In Week 1, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers didn't target Sherman's side of the field once. "(Sherman) is a great corner. But at the same time, I think you have to be smart. It's not one of the deals that you want to go after him by any means. But our approach is not going to be to completely eliminate (Sherman) and not throw over there any," Rivers said.
Fantasy Tip: Sherman figures to be matched up mostly against Malcom Floyd Sunday, but the Bolts often move their receivers around, so he could cover Keenan Allen on occasion, too. Neither SD receiver is intriguing at FantasyScore this weekend, but Allen ($6,100; 12.2% of cap) is probably your better bet for catches.

|Chargers | Keeping just two QBs|
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 22:50:03 -0700
The San Diego Chargers will keep just two quarterbacks, starter QB Philip Rivers and veteran backup QB Kellen Clemens. The team cut QB Brad Sorensen, who is eligible for the 10-man practice squad. It is unclear if that is what the team intends to do.

|Chargers | Will talk Philip Rivers extension following season|
Tue, 19 Aug 2014 02:01:00 -0700
Provided the San Diego Chargers don't reach an agreement with QB Philip Rivers on a contract extension before the season starts, the team and Rivers will likely wait until the end of the year to begin talks in earnest on a new deal. The team wants to avoid Rivers slipping into his final year on the current contract (2015) without a new deal negotiated.

|Chargers | Frank Reich's offense will feature a lot of no-huddle|
Fri, 06 Jun 2014 14:07:52 -0700
San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich will utilize the no-huddle offense a lot in 2014, and he may even implement the famed "K-gun" system from his time backing up retired Buffalo Bills QB Jim Kelly. Chargers QB Philip Rivers will run a fast-paced passing attack that spreads the ball and attempts to gas defenses to create big plays. He is expected to have more freedom than ever before to make pre-snap adjustments.
Fantasy Tip: Rivers won the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year Award in 2013 for his strong season, and he is relatively undervalued in early 2014 fantasy football drafts. The veteran passer should come off the board in the middle rounds as a low-end QB1.
