Philip Rivers looked like his old self on Sunday against the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Chargers blew out the Titans in Week 2 of the regular season, and Philip Rivers was leading the way at the helm of an impressive passing game for San Diego. Rivers finished with 284 yards and three touchdowns against Tennessee.

Fantasy Impact: Rivers really struggled with his accuracy last season, but it appears he may have turned a corner in this regard in 2012. He's only thrown one pick in his first two contests, and his three scores against the Titans have to leave fantasy owners satisfied. The Titans secondary is by no means a challenge to face off against, so Rivers will have work to do against tougher opponents going forward. Still, his play in Week 2 will hopefully foreshadow an impressive fantasy campaign this year.
