Recent Player News

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 8:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is starting to find a rhythm running the football and is seeing the running lanes better, according to QB Philip Rivers.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is coming off his best game of the season, and he remains one of the true every-down backs in the game today. His huge workload makes him a RB1 heading into a Week 6 matchup with the Oakland Raiders.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 4:59pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed just 21 of his 44 pass attempts for 258 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Week 5 game against the New York Giants. He passed Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton for 10th on the NFL's all-time career passing yardage list.

    Huddle Up: Rivers had his worst completion percent (47.7) of the season, but he tied a season high with the three scoring strikes and the Bolts picked up their first win, too. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 6 in Oakland against a mediocre Raiders pass defense.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 7:18pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 22 of his 38 passes for 347 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Rivers bounced back from a three-interception outing in Week 3, and he has put up decent numbers despite the Chargers' 0-4 start. He can provide QB1 numbers against the right matchups, but a showdown with the solid defense of the New York Giants in Week 5 pushes him into QB2 territory.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 6:28pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 20 of his 40 pass attempts for 237 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Rivers had a nightmare outing, as he was picked three times, sacked twice and he had another potential interception overturned by instant replay. He posted a dismal 37.2 quarterback rating in the loss. Rivers now has four touchdowns and four interceptions through his first three games, all losses. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Posted: 9/12/2017 3:37am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers threw for three touchdown passes and 192 yards in a 24-21 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Rivers completed two-thirds of his passes, and only a missed field goal prevented the Chargers from tying the score and sending the game to overtime. Rivers showed his ability to lead comeback drives and find the open man. He ranks as a decent QB1 option, especially in weaker matchups.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 9:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed all six of his pass attempts for 85 yards and a touchdown in a 21-19 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Injuries decimated the offense last year, but don't write off Rivers just yet. He could be a sneaky QB1 option still on the board later in drafts.

  • Posted: 8/20/2017 8:41pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers was was held out of the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Aug. 20. QB Kellen Clemens started and completed 10 of his 17 pass attempts for 99 yards and rushed three times for 26 yards.

    Huddle Up: Rivers is coming off a down year by his standards, but if his receivers and offensive line can stay somewhat healthy, he could bounce back. He could be a great value as a low-end QB1.

  • Posted: 7/31/2017 5:45am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers is commuting 71 miles each way to training camp from his northeast San Diego home every day. He has a driver so he can do work in the car. Head coach Anthony Lynn expressed some concerns, but Rivers said he wouldn't be rushing out of the facility every day.

    Huddle Up: It's an unusual setup for a quarterback, but it should be a nonfactor. He had a down year last season with the most interceptions of his career (21), and his 60.4 percent completion rate was the second-lowest figure since he became a starter. He's on the fringe of the QB1 landscape.

  • Posted: 6/14/2017 5:11pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he believes he can play a few more seasons before he considers retirement.

    Huddle Up: Rivers has thrown for at least 4,000 yards in eight of his last nine seasons and at least 30 touchdowns in three of the last four season. He did struggle with 21 interceptions in 2016 but should reduce that number this season. Rivers have a solid group of pass catchers to work with on offense and can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 5/4/2017 10:22am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers has started 176 consecutive games, and head coach Anthony Lynn believes he has another three or four productive years ahead of him. The Chargers did not a draft a quarterback because Lynn still has high expectations for his veteran quarterback. 'We definitely think Philip can still play,' Lynn said. 'Whoever we drafted was going to have to come in and sit for a while because I think Philip is going to continue to play at a high level.'

    Huddle Up: Rivers has been the most consistent quarterback over the last decade aside from Drew Brees. In fact, he hasn't finished outside of QB1 territory since 2007 and hasn't missed a game since 2005. Rivers isn't a sexy pick, but he gets the job done. You can draft him late, too.

  • Posted: 2/9/2017 5:42pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers has the most touchdowns of any quarterback in NFL history that has never appeared in a Super Bowl. He's thrown 314 touchdown passes, placing him in first on the list, with former NFL QB Warren Moon closest behind with 291. Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is third, having recorded 285 passing touchdowns, while former NFL QB Vinny Testaverde is fourth with 275.

    Huddle Up: The Chargers have had a few really good teams with Rivers under center, but just quite haven't been able to get over the hump during his long tenure with the franchise. It shouldn't be something that puts Rivers in a negative light, as the 35-year-old has had a sensational career since being drafted fourth overall in 2004. In fact, he's posted a QB rating of 88 or better in each of the last nine years. As usual, he'll enter 2017 with QB1 potential.

  • Posted: 1/18/2017 9:52am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/4/2017 3:54pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 2:11pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/13/2016 4:44pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 2:25pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 6:51pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 10:25pm ET

    San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 24 of his 33 pass attempts for 275 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in the Week 9 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Rivers has two or more touchdown passes in four of his past six games, and at least one score in each of the six outings. He remains a solid low-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 8:42pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 10:02pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.
