  • Chargers' Philip Rivers: Still going strong
    By RotoWire Staff

    Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said he wouldn't be surprised if Rivers were to continue playing into his 40s, SiriusXM NFL Radio on Twitter reports. Yet to miss a game since taking over as the starter in 2006, the 36-year-old quarterback threw for at least 4,286 yards and 28 touchdowns each of the past five seasons. The Chargers somehow haven't reached double-digit wins since 2009, but the team should boast one of the stronger rosters in the league entering 2018, with Rivers surrounded by a slew of proven offensive weapons along with a nice collection of young talent on defense. While that won't stop discussion about the Chargers drafting an eventual successor, Rivers likely intends to play at least a couple more years, seeking the elusive Super Bowl ring that seemed a likely proposition back when he began his tenure as the starter with four straight playoff appearances. The Chargers have qualified for the postseason just once since that time, but Rivers arguably now has his best supporting cast since LaDainian Tomlinson left town in 2009.

  • Rivers completed 28 of 37 passes for 387 yards and three touchdowns in the 30-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday. It wasn't enough for the Chargers to clinch a spot in the playoffs, but Rivers continued his excellent play to end the year, tearing apart a beleaguered Raiders secondary to the tune of 387 passing yards, his second highest total of the season. The 36-year-old hardly lost a step in 2017, throwing only five fewer touchdowns compared to the year prior while shaving off a whopping 11 interceptions from his 2016 figures. While there were rumblings in the offseason that the Chargers were intent on finding a replacement for their aging quarterback, yet another 4,000-yard passing season should pave the way for Rivers to start another campaign, so long as the veteran quarterback is interested in coming back for his 15th season.

  • Rivers completed 22 of 40 passes for 290 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 14-7 win over the Jets. This one didn't feature much offense early, as Rivers' three-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Gates opened the scoring with 8:55 left in the second quarter. The Chargers are tied for the second AFC wild-card spot with the Bills and Titans at 8-7, so Rivers' fantasy owners don't have to worry about the team holding him back during next week's finale against the Raiders. Rivers' 25 touchdowns are the fewest he's thrown since 2007, but the 36-year-old quarterback's 10 interceptions are his second-fewest since that point.

  • Rivers completed 20 of 36 pass attempts for 227 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Chiefs. Rivers led touchdown drives on each side of halftime to give his team a lead into the third quarter. Unfortunately, the offense fell apart after that juncture, turning the ball over on four consecutive possessions as Kansas City pulled away for good. Rivers had been in good form prior to this stinker, with an average of 316.6 yards and 10 touchdowns compared to just one interception over his previous five games. In the thick of a playoff race, the veteran will look to bounce back next week against the Jets.

  • 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.
