Phillip Rivers could keep rolling
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has scored at least 20 Fantasy points in five of seven games so far this season, and should keep on rolling in Week 8 against the Broncos Thursday.

The Broncos have been among the 10-worst defense in the league when it comes to slowing down quarterbacks, allowing 20.3 Fantasy points per game. And, though the game will be taking place Thursday, Fantasy owners shouldn't be too worried about that putting a damper on Rivers' roll. Rivers scored 18 Fantasy points in his last Thursday night game, and had 34 points in two games against the Broncos last season.

This game has all of the makings of a shootout, and Rivers has been just about as good as any quarterback in the league. Even with the short week, keep Rivers active for Week 8.

Philip Rivers throws two TDs in Chargers' Week 7 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 17 of his 31 passes for 205 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in his team's 23-20 loss to the Chiefs in Week 7.

The Chiefs were able to grind out long drives throughout the game, keeping the ball out of Rivers' hands and limiting the Chargers to just 21 minutes of possession. Rivers still managed multiple touchdowns for the sixth straight game, hitting John Phillips for a wide-open one-yard score in the first quarter and finding Antonio Gates in the end zone on a deflected pass from 27 yards out in the second quarter.

It was Rivers' first time falling short of a 120 quarterback rating since the season opener, and his 205 yards were by far a season low. He'll look for a better result against the Broncos in Denver on Thursday night.

Chargers' Philip Rivers fires three touchdown passes Week 6
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers continued to impress with another impressive performance, firing three touchdown passes in a Week 6 win at Oakland.

Rivers hooked up with Eddie Royal for a 29-yard touchdown strike in the opening quarter. He threw a 5-yard pass to Malcom Floyd in the end zone for a score in the second quarter and then connected with Antonio Gates for a 1-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.
Rivers compiled 313 yards through the air while completing 22 of 34 passes. He added three touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 123.8 passer rating. He was sacked once and rushed for 13 yards on five attempts. He has a 15-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio this season.

The Chargers will host the Chiefs in Week 7.

Chargers' Philip Rivers turns in masterful performance Week 5
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers turned in an exceptional performance Week 5 against the Jets.

Rivers completed 20 of 28 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns. He also threw one interception during the contest. Antonio Gates wound up playing a big role, hauling in two touchdowns. Despite the strong start, Rivers wound up being under pressure more often than usual. He took three sacks during the game. Rivers also had two rushing attempts for 3 yards. Rivers left the game in the fourth quarter, making way for Kellen Clemens to get some time. Rivers did admit to injuring his hand during the contest, but was able to play through the injury. 

He'll take on the Raiders Week 6.

Philip Rivers picks up slack for running game
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With running back Donald Brown struggling to fill the void of Ryan Mathews in what seemed like a favorable matchup Week 4 vs. Jacksonville, picking up 19 yards on 10 carries, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers put the team on his shoulders, throwing for a season-high 377 yards. He had three touchdown passes for the second time in three games, giving him eight (to zero interceptions) during that stretch.

With both Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead sidelined for the foreseeable future, Rivers figures to carry the offense, and if this performance is any indication, he's up to the challenge.

Based on what Rivers has been in the past and what the Chargers offense will have to be without any sort of running game, I'd anticipate using Rivers about like I use Matt Ryan in Fantasy -- in other words, starting him every week.

That includes Week 5 against the Jets, who are much more geared to stop the run than the pass these days.
