Rivers does not usually struggle when he heads east and he does have 1,068 yards, 10 touchdowns and 7 picks in his last 5 games. He's a solid QB2 against a struggling Panthers D.The Chargers are just 26th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 5 weeks, Newton tends to play better at home and he should be motivated after being embarrassed on Sunday Night Football.
