Fantasy Analysis | 1419194209
Philip Rivers too unpredictable to use
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Facing a top-five defense and having to do without top wide receiver Keenan Allen, who was sidelined by a broken collarbone, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers looked like he didn't stand a chance Week 16 at San Francisco. After all, he hadn't been playing so great anyway, perhaps because of a bulging disk in his lower back, throwing for multiple scores in just one of his previous six games.

So naturally, he goes and throws for four touchdowns Saturday night, completing 33 of 54 passes for 356 yards. He had three interceptions as well, but the net result for his Fantasy owners was extremely positive.

Of course, only 41 percent of them actually benefited from it. The rest sat Rivers, who again, had done his best to sink them in recent weeks.

I wouldn't let this performance change my approach to him in the season's final week. His previous two matchups against Denver and New England had the makings of shootouts, and he couldn't make it happen. And now come reports of him looking into back surgery in the offseason. Clearly, he's not feeling right, and he's playing with less than a complete arsenal. So while he deserves credit for this big game against the 49ers, you shouldn't anticipate a repeat in an even more difficult matchup Week 17 at Kansas City.

Report: Philip Rivers considering surgery for bulging disk
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has a bulging disk in his lower back, sources told Chris Mortensen of ESPN on Sunday.

Rivers converted a pair of fourth downs and led his team to a 14-play, 80-yard drive which resulted in a game-tying touchdown with just 29 second left on the clock in the fourth quarter. He compiled for 356 yards while completing 33 of 54 passes, adding four touchdowns and three interceptions in Saturday's 38-35 win over the 49ers in overtime.

According to Mortensen, the injury started giving him some discomfort three weeks ago and doctors fear that the bulging disk is on the brink of being herniated. Rivers has taken epidural injections to reduce the swelling and is considering surgery at the end of the season. The Chargers are 9-7 and still alive for a playoff spot heading into the final week of the season against Kansas City.

Chargers QB Philip Rivers throws four TDs vs. 49ers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 33 of his 54 pass attempts for 356 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers in Week 16.

Rivers helped to put his team in a big hole early, throwing a pick-six in the second quarter that put the 49ers up 21-0. However, the quarterback fought back from a 28-7 halftime deficit, throwing the game-tying touchdown with just 29 second left on the clock in the fourth quarter. It was Rivers' first game with more than 50 pass attempts this season as well as his first game with four touchdowns.

Rivers has managed 3,995 passing yards, 31 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 15 games. He heads into a Week 17 matchup against the Chiefs with the 9-7 Chargers still alive for a playoff spot.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rivers missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday before having an "outstanding" day of practice Thursday and winding up listed as probable on the team's final injury report. Green was deemed questionable but will suit up, as will defensive tackle Corey Liuget (ankle), who also carried a questionable tag into Saturday's game.

The Chargers enter the road matchup as a 1-point underdog.
