Chargers' Philip Rivers: Loses weight in offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

New head coach Anthony Lynn said Rivers lost 10 pounds working in the Chargers' offseason conditioning program, ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams reports.

Lynn also said he believes Rivers can play at a high level for three or four more seasons, which explains why the team didn't select a potential successor during the 2017 draft. The Chargers did prioritize Rivers' supporting cast, surprisingly using their first-round selection on wide receiver Mike Williams (No. 7 overall), and then taking offensive linemen Forrest Lamp (No. 38) and Dan Feeney (No. 71) in Rounds 2 and 3. Williams will join a strong wideout group that already included Keenan Allen (knee), Travis Benjamin (knee) and 2016 leading receiver Tyrell Williams -- supported by the impressive tight end duo of Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates. It appears the 35-year-old quarterback has his best supporting cast in quite some time, though he won't have favorite security blanket Danny Woodhead (knee), who signed with the Ravens after missing most of last season with a torn ACL.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Ends season with 33 touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivers completed 22 of his 38 passes for 269 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Rivers just missed setting a career high in touchdowns as he finished the season with 33, one off his best mark which he set in 2008.The 33-year-old also ended the season with 4,386 passing yards, good for fifth-best in the league and the eighth time Rivers has thrown for over 4,000 yards in the last nine seasons. Those figures are even more stunning given the fact Rivers was without two of his favorite receiving threats, Keenan Allen (knee) and Danny Woodhead (knee) for the majority of the season. Still, the late surge in interceptions was troubling, as the quarterback threw 14 picks through the final seven games en route to a league-leading 21 picks, also a career high. That high total could be chalked up to Rivers feeling the need to press the issue, as the team was beset by injuries by the end of the year. With the emergence of Tyrell Williams and Hunter Henry, Rivers figures to have plenty of weapons should the aforementioned Allen and Woodhead return to full health next season. If they can all stay healthy, no small task given the Chargers' injury history the last two seasons, Rivers should be primed for another excellent fantasy season.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Tosses two touchdowns, picks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed 22 of 38 passes for 269 yards, two touchdowns and two picks in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

Rivers' touchdown strike to long-time friend Antonio Gates in the second quarter put San Diego in control. He followed it with two picks later in the second quarter and by the time Rivers connected with Hunter Henry for a score in the fourth quarter, the game was already out of reach. Plenty of uncertainty surrounds the Chargers - location, coaching staff and Rivers himself. Wrapping up the season with a career low in completion percentage (60.4 percent) and high in interceptions (21) will do little to quell questions for a team that is otherwise in rebuilding mode.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Tops 30 touchdowns for fifth time
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivers completed 23 of 46 passes for 322 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 20-17 loss to the Browns.

Rivers' very first pass was a 50-yarder to former Browns receiver Travis Benjamin, and his next completion was a one-yard touchdown to Antonio Gates to cap the drive. He added another one-yard passing score to Tyrell Williams in the second half, benefiting from the running game's inability to convert in close with Melvin Gordon (hip/knee) out. The 35-year-old quarterback has thrown multiple touchdown passes in eight straight games en route to his fifth career 30-touchdown campaign.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Throws two touchdowns in loss to Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivers completed 17 of 30 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Raiders.

Rivers threw touchdown passes to Travis Benjamin and Hunter Henry to give his team the lead heading into the fourth quarter, but the offense struggled to produce in the final frame and saw Oakland win the game on a pair of field goals. He nearly went without an interception for the first time since Week 9 but was picked on his last drive of the game after a penalty put him in a fourth-and-long situation. Rivers has thrown multiple touchdowns in seven consecutive games but has also turned the ball over 16 times during that stretch. He will enjoy a favorable matchup next week against the Browns.
