Chargers' Philip Rivers: Piles up passing yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed 31 of 39 passes for 331 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Dolphins.

While the game was close throughout, the Chargers opted to attack mainly through the air, attempting 39 passes compared to just 14 runs. Rivers was effective throughout the afternoon, rarely attempting deep passes in lieu of safe, concise throws, but as a result the offense rarely found itself with scoring opportunities. In one of the rare times in the red zone, Rivers did connect with long-time tight end Antonio Gates for his record-breaking 112th career touchdown, surpassing Tony Gonzalez for the most touchdown receptions by a tight end, but that was about the only good news for a team that has now lost back-to-back games on last-second missed field goals. Rivers will have a tougher matchup against the Chiefs next Sunday.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Fourth-quarter comeback bid falls short
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed 22 of 33 passes for 192 yards and three touchdowns during Monday's loss to Denver.

The veteran quarterback was under pressure most of the night and struggled through the first three quarters, so it was encouraging to see him post a respectable fantasy showing in the daunting matchup. Additionally, Rivers' poise put the Chargers in position to complete a 17-point comeback in the fourth quarter, but Denver blocked rookie Younghoe Koo's field-goal attempt to tie the game as the clock ran out. Rivers spread the ball around well Monday and has the receiving corps in place to continue to pile up fantasy points moving forward.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Goes perfect, leads two scoring drives Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed all six of his pass attempts for 85 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 21-19 preseason win over the Rams.

Though he didn't play deep into the game, Rivers was terrific in going without a single incompletion while leading a pair of long scoring drives. He had nearly a full arsenal of playmakers at his disposal and provided one of the highlights of the night on a 45-yard touchdown completion to Travis Benjamin. Rivers will not play in Thursday's preseason finale against the 49ers, but the efficiency with which he led the offense in this one indicates that he is ready for the Week 1 showdown against the Broncos.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: No go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers isn't expected to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Saints, Alex Flanagan of NFL Network reports.

The Chargers won't press their luck with Rivers, who was a precise five of six for 56 yards and a touchdown during preseason Week 1. As exhibition season proceeds, expect Rivers to get up to a half of action in the team's next contest Saturday against the Rams. On Sunday, though, Kellen Clemens will get the start, with Cardale Jones receiving plenty of run thereafter, per head coach Anthony Lynn.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Looks sharp in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed five of six passes for 56 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 48-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks.

Rivers played just one series in his preseason debut, but he looked quite sharp. He efficiently led the first-team offense on a 75-yard touchdown drive, which he capped off with a five-yard strike to Antonio Gates. Rivers, who piled up 4,386 yards and 33 touchdowns last season, should see some additional run in the next exhibition game Sunday against the Saints.
