Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers threw 41 times, but produced just 232 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
Insight: Rivers couldn't get anything going for a second straight weekend as the Chargers scored just 10 points. The early season MVP talk has long since disappeared.
 
Cold12/8/2014 9:41:00 AM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was held in check by Aqib Talib and the Patriots secondary.
Insight: Rivers' favorite target, Keenan Allen, was completely nullified by Talib and it left the Chargers quarterback searching for a backup plan which he never found. Rivers threw for just 189 yards with one touchdown and one interception. It won't get much easier next weekend when he is facing the pass-rushing Broncos.
 
11/30/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers bounced back from a rough start to the game in Baltimore.
Insight: Rivers threw an interception on the first drive of the game, but he finished with 383 passing yards and three touchdowns with just the one pick. The performance should have given fantasy owners confidence to plug him back into lineups for the fantasy playoffs.
 
11/17/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was just 22-of-34 for 193 yards and one touchdown against Oakland.
Insight: Rivers had his leg rolled up on a couple of times and was walking with a noticable limp, but continued to play through it. Hopefully, it won't swell up during the week.
 
11/16/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has his left leg rolled up on in the third quarter and was limping noticable.
Insight: Rivers continued to play, but it could be a concern later in the game and for next weekend.
 
11/2/2014 6:50:00 PM
Description: So much for the Philip Rivers MVP campaign.
Insight: Rivers had, by far, his worse game of the season in Miami. He completed less than half of his passes for 138 yards and threw three interceptions. Rivers also lost a fumble. That gave him negative points in standard fantasy leagues.
 
10/24/2014 9:34:00 AM
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.
