Chargers | Philip Rivers good to go

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 16:15:37 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is active Saturday, Dec. 20, for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers ($6,600; 13.2% of your cap) is an iffy start against the San Francisco 49ers with a number of skill-position players out.

Chargers | Philip Rivers probable

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:04:24 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) fully practiced Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for the team's Week 16 game.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers will be good to go in Week 16, but he is not a strong play this week as he deals with a back injury and faces an extremely talented San Francisco defense.

Chargers | Philip Rivers ready for Saturday

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 20:20:01 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) looked good throwing the ball in the practice Thursday, Dec. 18, according to head coach Mike McCoy. "Philip had an outstanding day," McCoy said. "A ball did not hit the ground in all the throws he made today. Philip was Philip, so he'll be ready to roll."

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Rivers will suit up in Week 16, but he has struggled in his last two starts and isn't a smart play at FantasyScore as he deals with an injured back and faces the third-ranked pass defense of the San Francisco 49ers.

Chargers | Philip Rivers practices in full

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 12:41:59 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Rivers will be able to play in Week 16 despite the injuries. Rivers probably will not be at full strength during the game and is facing a tough San Francisco 49ers defense, so he may not be the best option on FantasyScore at $6,600.

Chargers | Philip Rivers practicing

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:48:56 -0800

Updating previous reports, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers will cost $6,600 in FantasyScore this week, but he may be a risky start against the San Francisco 49ers, especially if he is not at full strength.

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 | 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 | 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.
