Philip Rivers posts 341 yards and a pair of touchdowns for fantasy owners in Chargers' loss

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Chargers' veteran signal-caller turned in another gaudy passing total on Sunday versus the Redskins, but his team fell short of victory. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is amid a remarkable bounce-back season, and turned-in another solid performance versus the Redskins on Sunday.

Rivers moved the ball during several important moments, but was not able to find the end zone on the team's final drive. Despite that, Rivers ended his day completing 29 of 46 passes for 341 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Rivers and the rest of the Chargers' offense came alive late in the game after targeting rookie wide receiver Keenan Allen heavily during the team's final two drives.

Fantasy Spin: Just another day at the office for Rivers, who is now on pace for 4,946 yards and 34 touchdown passes. Both would be career highs for Rivers, who matched the 34-touchdown mark in 2008.

Rivers has another juicy matchup on the schedule versus the Denver Broncos, who could engage the Chargers in a shootout. If that's the case, Rivers has the goods to deliver another big fantasy output. Owners can start him with confidence in Week 10 once again as a high-upside QB1.
