It's vital to adjust the fantasy football roster when star players face rough opponents this late in the season.
A starting quarterback such as Philip Rivers remains a strong option, but getting the Denver Broncos defense this Sunday warrants concern. On one hand, Rivers typically plays well versus Denver, but he can be turnover-prone at times as well.
The Broncos also present a stellar pass rush capable of increasing Rivers' potential turnovers. Still, the Chargers have a solid receiving corps and ground game for balance.
As a result he's a good start, although it's just safe to not get overhyped about the matchup. This week, Rivers isn't alone as he and other star players get unfavorable opponents.
