Kansas City does have a great fantasy defense, but mostly because they force loads of turnovers. The Chiefs give up plenty of yards and TDs so don't be scared off by this matchup.

Philip Rivers squashes trade rumors

According to Chargers beat writer Kevin Acee, quarterback Philip Rivers "is not pushing" for a trade out of Los Angeles to the San Francisco 49ers. Acee added that Rivers has a no-trade clause in his contract and that the signal caller is "fine" with the move from San Diego to Los Angeles.

Fantasy Impact

Jim Schultz of the Schultz Report later reported that Rivers is "disappointed in the LA move and wants to have say in GM/coach hiring process," suggesting that the trade rumors are, in fact, valid. However, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune heavily disagrees with the rumors being factual -- as his quotes are from the quarterback's mouth. This is a developing story that could linger on throughout the offseason unless further clarity is provided. If Rivers was actually on the trading block, he could garner a similar return that Sam Bradford had back in the summer when he was traded from Philadelphia to Minnesota -- the Vikings gave up a first round pick in 2017 and a conditional fourth round pick in 2018 in return for Bradford's services.
