2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the league's best leaders, Philip Rivers has never missed a start in the 11 seasons since becoming the Chargers' starting quarterback. Not only that, but he's been a monster fantasy asset, having passed for at least 4,000 yards in eight of his past nine seasons while passing for anywhere between 26 to 33 touchdowns in all nine of those seasons. Rivers has one of the safest jobs in all of football with the Chargers having not spent significant money or draft equity on the quarterback position in quite some time, but there is some concern that his skills are deteriorating. Rivers threw a career-most 21 interceptions in 2016 and his offensive line has allowed him to take some pretty serious licks in recent years. He's also one of the league's least-mobile QB's, having not rushed for a touchdown since 2011. Still, if the team can get back to health remain that way, this may be the deepest group of pass catchers that Rivers has ever played with. Rivers finished sixth at quarterback in 2016 and there's little reason to believe that he won't again finish around that range this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Mike Williams, Benjamin expected to play
Both receivers listed as questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 23, 11:10 am

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Travis Benjamin and Mike Williams will both be in the lineup as the Chargers try to improve their record to 5-6. Benjamin is listed with an abdomen injury while Williams is on the report with a knee issue. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Rookie Mike Williams got some extended run in garbage time last week so he's difficult to trust today against the Cowboys. Expect Philip Rivers to spread the ball around as normal, making every Chargers pass catcher a risky fantasy option.


Injury Rivers clears concussion protocol
Will play in Week 11
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 17, 4:00 pm

The streak lives. Philip Rivers will make his 195th consecutive start Sunday after the Chargers quarterback was cleared by an independent neurological consultant to play against the Buffalo Bills in StubHub Center. The 35-year-old veteran, self-reported concussion symptoms after last Sunday’s 20-17 overtime loss at Jacksonville and was placed in concussion protocol Monday. (San Diego Union Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Rivers was able to practice this week and will be good to go against a Bills team that's lost two straight games giving up 81 points in the process.


Injury Philip Rivers likely to go Week 11
Practices fully Thursday; still in league's concussion protocol
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 16, 7:25 pm

HC Anthony Lynn on Philip Rivers (concussion): "We think he'll play (Week 11), but that's up to the doctors. That's not my decision." (LA Chargers on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: While the fact Rivers logged a full practice Thursday doesn't guarantee he'll play in Week 11, it means there's a pretty good chance. The 35-year-old, who has never missed a start since taking over for Drew Brees in 2006 is just on the outside the top 12 fantasy quarterbacks despite facing a difficult schedule. Look for him to move up the list a bit as he faces Buffalo, Dallas and Cleveland over the next three weeks.


Injury Philip Rivers in concussion protocol
Status in doubt for Week 11
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 13, 7:00 pm

Chargers QB Philip Rivers is in the concussion protocol. If he can't play this weekend, Kellen Clemens would move up to No. 1. (Orange County Regsiter)

FFToday's Take: Rivers didn't miss a snap in Week 10, but he self-reported his symptoms upon arriving at team headquarters Monday. He wasn't sacked, so one of the few times he could have suffered the injury was on his overtime interception. The 35-year-old has logged 185 straight starts since being named the full-time starter in 2006. Clemens is a huge downgrade and yet another quarterback owners should be willing to stream defenses against if he gets the nod.
