Chargers | Philip Rivers denies trade request

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 09:52:20 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers refuted reports Tuesday, Jan. 17, that claimed he asked for a trade or wanted to be dealt, specifically to the San Francisco 49ers. Rivers has a no-trade clause in his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers should enter 2017's fantasy draft season as a sound QB2. While he doesn't offer much upside for a monster season, the veteran is capable of turning in a few huge games during the course of the year as a matchup play.

Chargers | Philip Rivers under the radar

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 15:54:14 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers achieved one of the most underappreciated seasons of the year, throwing for 4,390 yards and 33 touchdowns -- ranked fifth and fourth, respectively, among quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers has seemingly been underrated throughout his career, but he has made his mark in the fantasy realm. He keeps putting up QB1 numbers despite a plethora of injuries to his offensive counterparts. He should be drafted as a QB1 again in 2017.

Chargers | Philip Rivers goes over 300 yards

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 14:11:42 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 24 of his 47 pass attempts for 321 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: The Bolts haven't had a great season, but Rivers has been a bright spot with eight straight games tossing two or more touchdown passes.

Chargers | Philip Rivers enjoys facing Oakland

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 16:44:13 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has played in 20 career games opposite the Oakland Raiders, completing 409 of 650 passes (62.9 percent) for 4,835 yards with 31 touchdowns versus 15 interceptions, resulting in a 91.8 QB rating. The Chargers are 14-6 in those 20 games.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers is normally in the QB1 discussion, but he might deserve a little extra consideration for fantasy owners in the postseason this weekend, as he's put up some impressive numbers against the division rival Raiders. Furthermore, Oakland's defense has allowed 20 or more points in six straight contests. He's definitely someone to ponder for those who don't have their starting quarterback permanently installed.

Chargers | Philip Rivers has up and down game

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 14:25:51 -0800

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers went 21-for-39 for 236 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions against the Carolina Panthers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers lost his starting running back early in the game, so he had to throw a lot during the game. He has thrown 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions over the last four games and had at least 30 pass attempts in three of those games. Rivers has plenty of weapons to work with on offense but can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against the Oakland Raiders in Week 15.

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.

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.
