Chargers' Philip Rivers: Hoping team re-signs Gates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers would support the signing of Antonio Gates, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

The Chargers are reconsidering their plan to move forward without the 38-year-old tight end after losing Hunter Henry to a torn ACL in May. The injury dealt a blow to Rivers' prospects for 2018, but he still has an impressive group of pass catchers, led by WRs Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams, Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin, along with RBs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler . After managing just 6.1 yards per target last season, Gates likely would be limited to a part-time role on passing downs if he does end up back in Los Angeles. Rivers has landed between 28 and 33 touchdown passes in five consecutive seasons, throwing for no more than 4,792 yards and no less than 4,286 in that span. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he won't be surprised if the 36-year-old quarterback continues playing into his 40s.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Still going strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 case since LaDainian Tomlinson left town in 2009.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Nearly tosses 400 yards in final game of sesaon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Nabs low-scoring Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Throws three interceptions versus Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 either side of half time 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.
