  • Rivers completed 18 of 31 attempts for 319 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 30-13 victory over the Redskins. Rivers came out red-hot Sunday, throwing for a career-high 256 yards in the first half. The veteran quarterback's two touchdowns came on an eight-yard completion to Hunter Henry and a 75-yard bomb to deep threat Tyrell Williams. The performance gives Rivers 1,097 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions over his last three outings. A date with the lowly Chiefs pass defense awaits Rivers in Week 15, when he will be one of the better options at quarterback in all fantasy formats.

  • Rivers completed 31 of 44 attempts for 344 yards and a touchdown in the 19-10 win over the Browns on Sunday. Rivers has simply been on a roll as of late, throwing for over 1,000 yards combined in the last three weeks. That's in large part due to his usage rate, as Sunday marked the fifth consecutive game Rivers attempted at least 30 passes, and the 11th such time he's completed the feat this year. With the Chargers still fighting for a playoff spot, they'll need to continue relying on Rivers, making him a suitable starting option in almost all fantasy leagues, especially with games against the vulnerable Redskins and Chiefs secondaries in the next two weeks.

  • Rivers completed 27 of 33 attempts for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the 28-6 win over the Cowboys on Thursday. Rivers put on a Thanksgiving Day clinic against a beleaguered Cowboys secondary, slicing his opposition apart with a whopping seven completions that traveled 25 or more yards. Thursday's performance also represented a season high in passing yards for the veteran quarterback, as Rivers' previous high-water mark came in Week 4 against another NFC East foe, the Eagles. For a second straight week, Rivers tormented his opposition with a study dose of throws to Keenan Allen, who posted a career-high 172 receiving yards Thursday. The 35-year-old should be primed for another fantasy gem when the Chargers take on the Browns next Sunday.

  • Chargers' Philip Rivers: Leads dominant victory

    Rivers completed 20 of 31 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 54-24 victory over the Bills. Rivers made it through the entire game without reporting any of the concussion symptoms that surfaced earlier in the week. He looked like a younger version of himself Sunday, too, rekindling his strong connection with top receiver Keenan Allen while making fans forget about the Chargers' offensive weaknesses that have been exposed in recent weeks. It was an all-around dominant victory for the entire team but especially for Rivers, considering he was going against a secondary that ranked top-six in interceptions, touchdowns surrendered and passer rating allowed. Next up for the veteran is a matchup with the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day.

  • Chargers' Philip Rivers: In uniform Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    As expected, Rivers (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills. It's notable that fellow QB Cardale Jones is active for the first time this season, giving the team three signal-callers Sunday, but Eric Williams of relays that Rivers is expected to start the contest after being medically cleared to play this weekend.
