Rivers remains on the QB1 radar against the abomination known as the Saints defense. He only has 99 pass attempts through Week 3, but has produced 0.50 fantasy points per drop back. The Saints defense has allowed the fourth-most total fantasy points this season.

Phillip Rivers threw for 330 yards in a crushing 26-22 loss to the Colts while completing 26-of-39 passes. Rivers didn't throw any touchdowns or interceptions but did lose a fumble on a sack by LB Erik Walden. Rivers added one carry for two yards.

Fantasy Impact
Rivers will have his ups-and-downs with two of his top pass catchers out for the season, WR Keenan Allen and RB Danny Woodhead. The emergence of WR Tyrell Williams and RB Melvin Gordon have been a bright spot so depending on the matchup will determine Rivers' value. Rivers will take his 5TD/0 INT ratio to a favorable matchup with the Saints. Rivers will be a QB1 for Week 4.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers completed 26 of 39 passes for 330 yards. He did not throw an interception, but he did not throw a touchdown either. He added one rush for two yards.

Fantasy Impact
It was a rare off game for Rivers, who made several bad throws in the first half, overthrowing his receivers at times and placing the ball at their feet at others. He put it together a bit more in the second half, but it was too little too late, as the Chargers defense made sure the Bolts left Indy with a loss.

Rivers and co. failed to find the endzone through the air & exploit a poor defense in Indy, but don't count them out this week.

The Saints have been torched 2 out of their 3 games, I expect Rivers to have a monster game.

Philip Rivers’ big game and a look around the rest of the league in Week 2 (Getty Images)Philip Rivers got 9.2 YPA with a 4:0 TD:INT ratio in a dominant performance Sunday, as he carved up a shaky Jags defense despite missing Keenan Allen and losing Danny Woodhead early. Rivers struggled badly without Allen last season, but San Diego is better equipped to replace him in 2016, as newcomer Tra...
