Fantasy Analysis
Week 14 Projections
One thing about a 5-7 team, Philip Rivers is usually in a come-from-behind mode. Coupled with a stud RB like Melvin Gordon, that creates a lot of good fantasy offense. Look for Rivers to be a good start this week against a Carolina defense that has decided to mail in the rest of the season.
Passsing: 262 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 3 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
This guy never seems to get the fantasy respect that he deserves. Last season, Rivers single-handedly carried a struggling, injury-riddled offense that lacked an effective rushing attack, amassing career highs in attempts, completions and passing yards. The numbers were especially impressive since go-to wideout Keenan Allen, Stevie Johnson and Antonio Gates missed a combined 19 games, and Gates wasn't truly healthy all season. Returning offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt will emphasize the same short-range precision passing attack that helped Rivers, who turns 35 in December, complete a personal best 69.5 percent of his throws in 2013. A San Diego offensive line that was devastated by injuries is healthy again. Allen, Johnson and the aging Gates are all good to go, too, and the very capable Danny Woodhead will handle the pass-catching back duties as usual. Speedy and underrated Travis Benjamin replaces Malcom Floyd (retired) as the designated deep threat, which is a nice upgrade. Hunter Henry is expected to receive plenty of playing time as Gates' backup, but rookie tight ends are rarely fantasy relevant. Rivers has finished as a top-11 fantasy quarterback three years in a row and offers fantasy QB1 upside more weeks than not. However, he sometimes struggles against the elite defenses and will take a backseat in the offense if the running game is clicking.

Passing: 4500 Yards, 27 TD, 22 INT.
Rushing: 50 Yards, 0 TD.
