Description: Chargers QB Philip Rivers was forced to throw more than he would like and ended up 30-of-41 for 252 yards, three scores and two interceptions.
Insight: It wasn't a great night, but it likely won't kill fantasy owners. Rivers is still producing top-five statistics at the quarterback position and one "off" night won't change that.
 
10/20/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Chargers QB Philip Rivers had a hot first half (11-of-16 for 122 yards and two scores), but the San Diego defense couldn't get off the field in the second half and Rivers did little after the break.
Insight: Rivers finished with 205 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, but fantasy owners have come to expect much more.
 
Hot10/13/2014 11:03:00 AM
Description: Chargers QB Philip Rivers was once again a top fantasy quarterback, passing for 313 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Insight: Rivers is proving that last season wasn't a fluke. he's averaging 292.7 ypg and his 15-2 TD to interception ration is exceptional. Rivers leads the league with a 117.6 QB rating and with his team at 5-1 should be talked about for MVP.
 
Hot10/6/2014 10:06:00 AM
Description: Chargers QB Philip Rivers was right on target all day, going 20-of-28 for 288 yards and three touchdowns.
Insight: Rivers would have thrown for a lot more yards, but the Chargers already had an insurmountable lead at the break. He had 244 passing yards in the first half alone.
 
Hot9/29/2014 9:51:00 AM
Description: It's nice when things go according to plan and Chargers QB Philip Rivers lit up the Jaguars pass defenses as expected.
Insight: Rivers threw for 377 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. That's without much production in the fourth quarter (16 passing yards) after building a big lead.
 
9/21/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Chargers QB Philip Rivers was solid again Sunday in Week 3, throwing for 256 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Insight: Rivers has just one interception over the first three games with six touchdowns passes. He hasn't thrown for 300 yards yet, but he's going to give you solid production every week.
 
Hot9/14/2014 7:44:00 PM
Description: Chargers QB Philip Rivers didn't have much trouble with the Seahawks much-heralded defense, going 19-of-23 for 191 yards and two touchdowns ... in the first half.
Insight: He finished well too, with 284 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions.
 
2/1/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: And the award for NFL's Comeback Player of the Year goes to ... none other than Chargers QB Philip Rivers.
Insight: Peyton Manning won Comeback Player of the Year honors in 2012. He's since graduated to the MVP award. While we don't predict that will happen with Rivers, he did have a remarkable year, throwing for 32 TD and 4,478 passing yards en route to a 105.5 quarterback rating. He figures to be a top-ten quarterback heading into next year's fantasy draft.
 
11/24/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: The Chargers captured an upset win over Kansas City thanks to 392 yards of offense from Philip Rivers.
Insight: Philips delivered three touchdown throws in San Diego's stunning 41-38 victory. His 106.6 quarterback rating through 11 games is a career-high.
 
Hot9/29/2013 7:42:00 PM
Description: San Diego QB Philip Rivers exploded for over 400 yards Sunday against Dallas.
Insight: After falling off the map in 2012, Rivers has come back strong with 11 TD and just two interceptions in his first four games this season. Sunday was the veteran's second 400-yard performance in the last three weeks. He'll try to keep it going next week against Oakland.
 
Hot9/15/2013 5:45:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has seven touchdowns after two weeks.
Insight: He threw three scores and had 419 yards on 36-of-47 passing Sunday at Philadelphia. After two straight disappointing seasons, Rivers appears to be back on the fantasy radar now that Mike McCoy is heading up this operation instead of Norv Turner.
 
6/18/2013 1:30:00 PM
Description: The Chargers are expected to scrap the vertical-oriented attack of the past few years in favor of a short-passing scheme, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Insight: New Chargers coach Mike McCoy, who was the offensive coordinator in Denverl last season, wants to get the ball out of Philip Rivers' hand quicker. Rivers has been one of the NFL's top deep passers since 2008, but he was sacked 49 times last season and has turned the ball over 47 times over the last two years. Change is necessary to cope with San Diego's terrible offensive line.
 
12/30/2012 7:37:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 13-of-17 for 151 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Raiders.
Insight: Rivers had a decent finish to the season, throwing for eight touchdowns with zero picks in the final four games but he failed to throw for more than 165 yards in three of them. His 3,606 yards are his lowest since 2007. Rivers has turned the ball over 47 times over the past two season and will certainly be drafted outside the top-15 quarterbacks in 2013.
 
12/9/2012 7:26:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers only completed 50 percent of his passes but still threw for 200 yards and three touchdowns with zero turnovers Sunday against the Steelers.
Insight: Rivers is no longer a top fantasy QB, and should really only be used in favorable matchups. Sunday was not one of them, so many fantasy owners likely had Rivers on the bench.
 
12/9/2012 12:20:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will be without three offensive lineman in Week 14. It's hard to throw the ball from your back or surring for your life.
Insight: It's tough enough facing the top-ranked Steelers' defense when you are healthy. Expect Rivers to have a tough afternoon. The same goes for Danario Alexander, Malcom Floyd and Antonio Gates.
 
11/11/2012 12:17:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will be without left tackle Jared Gaither for the fifth time this season due to a groin injury.
Insight: Rivers is coming off one of his top performances this season, throwing for 220 yards, two touchdowns and one interception on 18-of-20 passing in Week 9 against the Chiefs. He has another favorable matchup in Week 10 against the Buccaneers but might not be able to take advantage of it with his left tackle out.
 
Hot11/11/2012 12:17:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers carved up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for 337 yards and three touchdowns on 29-of-37 passing but also threw two interceptions.

Insight: Rivers threw four interceptions and lost two fumbles two weeks ago against the Broncos and threw just 154 yards on 18-of-34 passing in slippery conditions Sunday against the Browns but he returned to form Thursday against the sad sack Chiefs. He has another favorable matchup next week at Tampa Bay.
 
10/15/2012 11:47:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had 242 yards and two touchdowns on 25-of-41 passing Monday night against the Broncos but he also turned it over six times as San Diego blew a 24-0 lead.

9/23/2012 7:10:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers made it look like the first half of 2011 Sunday against the Falcons. Rivers threw two interceptions and completed just 55.3 percent of his passes.
