Philip Rivers throws two picks in Week 10 loss: Fantasy Implications

J. Meric

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had a lackluster day in Week 10. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had a less than stellar outing in Sunday's Week 10 match-up versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rivers and his team were very much in this ball game, but after the half, the Chargers were held without a touchdown.

While Rivers did throw three touchdowns, his 2 picks were very costly. For one reason or another, Rivers and the Chargers can't seem to right the ship.

Fantasy Analysis: On paper, Philip Rivers is an appealing fantasy commodity. He's a strong-armed QB who throws quite a bit, and has a strong corps of weapons in this pass-first offense. Unfortunately, Rivers is a pure gunslinger, and is not the most careful individual with the football.

While RIvers has a high ceiling, he often negates points with costly turnovers. And sometimes the entire offense just seems to stutter as a whole. If you own Philip Rivers, you're finding yourself between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, Rivers is too big a name to bench but on the other, you know he's not the QB to lead your team to the promise land.
