Philip Rivers completed 29-of-46 passes for 341 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 9 overtime loss to the Redskins.

Rivers nearly had three touchdowns and a win, but Danny Woodhead was tackled at the 6-inch line with under a minute remaining in regulation. After three straight blown chances, the Chargers settled for a field goal and lost in overtime without Rivers even getting a chance to touch the ball. Regardless, it was yet another productive day for fantasy owners as Rivers continues to show full command of this Mike McCoy offense. He's on pace for 4,946 yards, 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions heading into a Week 10 home game against the Broncos.

Philip Rivers completed 22-of-26 passes for 285 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 7 win over the Jaguars.

He added four rushing yards on two scrambles and took just one sack. Rivers has been rejuvenated in Mike McCoy's dink-and-dunk, quick-out passing offense, and picked apart the Jaguars' defense at will Sunday, even if the fantasy stats didn't fully cooperate. Keep him rostered during the Chargers' upcoming Week 8 bye. Rivers is going to be a QB1 for the rest of the season.

Philip Rivers completed 22-of-33 passes for 237 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 6 victory over the Colts.

This was a game dominated by the Chargers' offensive line and running game, though Rivers found Keenan Allen for the contest's lone touchdown. Most of the damage was done on a second-quarter drive that saw Rivers find Allen and Antonio Gates for big third-down conversions before Allen beat double-coverage for a 22-yard score. Rivers didn't take many, if any, gambles through the air, instead letting Allen do work post-catch. Rivers will be on the QB1 radar next Sunday in Jacksonville. This San Diego offense is typically a pass-first bunch.

Philip Rivers completed 20-of-24 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 3 loss to the Titans.

It was a return to Earth game for the fast-starting Chargers offense, which struggled to move the ball after its opening drive against a mediocre Titans defense. Rivers has zero downfield presence in his receiving corps, which is going to make the offense easy for opponents to squat on. He'll be a two-quarterback-league option only when the Chargers take on the Cowboys in Week 4.

Rivers' previous 2013 base salary was $12 million. His cap number has now been reduced by $3.32 million. Rivers remains under contract through 2015.

Through three preseason games, Rivers has completed 20-of-33 passes for 166 yards and two interceptions. He remains a middling QB2 in fantasy leagues.
