Philip Rivers crashes back to Earth in Week 3 loss to Titans

San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers drops back to throw - Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE

The San Diego quarterback only threw for 184 yards and one touchdown in the Week 3 loss to the Tennessee Titans. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers crashed back to Earth in the Week 3 loss to the Tennessee Titans only throwing for 184 yards and one touchdown. Rivers had started the season strong for fantasy owners and headed into Week 3 with 614 passing yards and seven touchdowns. In good news, Rivers was only sacked twice and did not throw an interception. He has only thrown one interception on the season.

Fantasy impact: Rivers entered Week 3 on a strong note, but was held in check by a Titans' defense that has been surprisingly strong. Rivers was averaging 307 passing yards per game and threw four touchdown passes in Week 1 and three in Week 2. Rivers is missing his big play receiver Malcolm Floyd who is still out indefinitely after suffering a neck injury in Week 2. He should still be considered a solid fantasy start right now. The Chargers will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.
