Chargers' Philip Rivers: Strong first half in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed 11 of 20 passes for 207 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 38-14 win over the Browns.

Cleveland's defense had done a good job against quarterbacks this season, but the Browns had no answer for Rivers in the first half. He hooked up with Tyrell Williams for touchdowns of 45 and 29 yards in the second quarter, but Los Angeles' lead got so bloated that Rivers didn't have to do anything of consequence after halftime and was even replaced by Geno Smith late. Rivers will face the Titans in Week 7.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Only throws five incompletions in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed 22 of 27 passes for 339 yards and two touchdowns in the 26-10 victory over the Raiders on Sunday.

Rivers was as efficient as ever Sunday, completing all but five of his passes in what quickly turned into a rout. Going 7-for-13 on third down helped propel the Chargers to a sizable lead entering the fourth quarter, but it was Rivers' ability to quickly get the ball out of his hands which helped create the positive conversion rating, as the offense was rarely in third-and-long situations. Rivers' first touchdown pass summed up the Raiders' entire afternoon, as the veteran quarterback bobbled the shotgun snap and then narrowly avoided two wide-open edge rushers to toss a simple checkdown to Austin Ekeler, who promptly took it 44 yards for six points. Through five weeks, Rivers is nearly on pace to post a career-high completion percentage (70.1) and has a sterling 13:2 TD:INT. That could change next week when the Chargers travel to face a capable Browns defense.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Throws for 424 yards and three scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed 34 of 51 pass attempts for 424 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Chiefs.

Rivers dinked and dunked in the first half, completing six passes for 88 yards to his running backs, although he was plagued by several drops from his wideouts. He opened things up in the second half, with the Chargers in come-from-behind mode, tossing scores to wide receivers Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams. The veteran quarterback threw a bad interception near the red zone in the third quarter, which eventually led a touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes, but was otherwise strong in his season debut. Rivers' first quarter touchdown pass to Austin Ekeler was the 343rd of his career, passing Fran Tarkenton for sixth place in NFL history.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Attempts seven passes in regular-season dress rehearsal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed five of seven passes for 29 yards during Saturday's preseason game against the Saints.

Rivers couldn't get much going against a tough Saints secondary, and not included in his stat line is the fact that he turned the ball over on downs after failing to connect with Mike Williams on fourth down from four yards out. Not to worry, there wasn't a whole lot to take away from Saturday's relatively meaningless preseason action -- and certainly not anything to take away from the veteran's stock in advance of his 15th NFL campaign. Rivers continues to be a late-round value at his double-digit ADP on most every fantasy platform.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Ready for extended work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers likely will play most of the first half in Saturday's preseason game against the Saints, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Coach Anthony Lynn plans to play most of his starters for the entire first half, but he said he might pull Rivers a little bit earlier. The 36-year-old quarterback appeared ready for the regular season in last week's exhibition against Seattle, completing six of seven passes for 62 yards. The loss of TE Hunter Henry (knee) still hurts, but Rivers has plenty of weapons at wide receiver and running back.
