Philip Rivers gets vote of confidence from Norv Turner: Fantasy implications

Al Messerschmidt

Is Philip Rivers joining Norv Turner on the hot seat? We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers is finding himself in hot water after another meltdown performance. How hot? Hot enough for Norv Turner to give the dreaded vote of confidence, giving the usual soundbites of "best chance to win" and "trying too hard" and everything else you've heard from head coaches who are about to be fired.

Rivers threw two more picks Sunday against the Bucs, including a pick six that ranks among the most baffling decisions of his career. He's now up to 12 INTs on the year

Fantasy Impact: Rivers is in no danger of losing his job, but Norval sure is after the Chargers once again snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

It's a tough situation in San Diego all around, and fantasy owners can't count on Rivers for consistent production anymore. He's no more than a QB2 against the Broncos in Week 11.
