Analyzing Philip Rivers' Long-Term Fantasy Value in 2013 After Week 4
The San Diego Chargers' passing offense was clicking on all cylinders in Week 4 with quarterback Philip Rivers at the helm, and more of the same should be expected given the way he's opened up 2013.
Rivers had a monster day, putting up 401 yards through the air on 35-of-42 passing with three touchdowns and one pick—a stat line that undoubtedly will go down as one of the best in any position from Week 4.
His splendid afternoon left NFL Network's Albert Breer impressed:
Man, Philip Rivers looks comfortable in Mike McCoy's offense.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 29, 2013
The veteran is over 70 percent completion on the season, and perhaps most importantly, has just two picks through four games.
The Chargers defense sits near the bottom of the league in defensive stats, and Rivers has been bailing them out all season with big game after big game.
The Chargers are just a couple of bad breaks from being 4-0—the Texans and Titans both staged improbable comeback victories—and that's a complete byproduct of Rivers' efficiency in the passing game.
Rivers has now surpassed 20 fantasy points in ESPN leagues three times in four games, and looks more and more the part of the starting option that he played his way out of last season.
If you own Rivers and aren't starting him by now in your league, you must have a guy named Manning, Rodgers or Brees at the helm.
