Philip Rivers adds late touchdowns to boost fantasy value in Week 11

Doug Pensinger

Philip Rivers stepped up his game down the stretch against Denver. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philip Rivers looked awful in the first half of Week 11, but he finally found a way to start moving the ball for the Chargers against the Broncos. Rivers finished with 258 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions on the afternoon.

He managed to lead his team back within seven late in the game, but Denver remained in control for its second victory over San Diego in 2012.

Fantasy Impact: Rivers is still turning the ball over, as he now has 14 interceptions on the season. He's finding a little help in Danario Alexander, but the Chargers ground game isn't help much in recent weeks.

San Diego faces Baltimore next week, so Rivers might be able to put up big numbers against one of the league's poorer pass defenses.
