Strength of Schedule

Fantasy Analysis
Week 15 Projections
The Chargers were never really threatened by Cincinnati, which led to a conservative approach and an end to Rivers' streak of 12 straight games with multiple touchdowns. While traveling on a short week is never an appealing spot, Rivers has another excellent matchup in Week 15 and has a good shot at starting another streak of multiple-TD outings. The Chargers travel to Kansas City to face a Chiefs' secondary that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing passers, including allowing two-plus touchdown passes in five of their last six contests.
Passsing: 314 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT.

Season Projections
Although Rivers has finished as a top-11 fantasy passer in six of the last seven years and has averaged 4,384 passing yards and 29 touchdown passes per season during that time frame, the pocket passer remains one of the most underappreciated quarterbacks in the fantasy universe. This past season, Rivers, avoiding one of his typical late-season fades, manufactured his second-best fantasy effort in the last five years, finishing second in the NFL in attempts, fourth in completions, second in passing yards and fifth (tie) in scoring strikes to clock out as the fantasy QB7. While Rivers is more than good enough to elevate the talent around him, having injury-prone Keenan Allen suit up all 16 games in a season for the first time in his career (only his third campaign with at least 14 games played) provided Rivers with a nice boost. He'll turn 37 in December, but Rivers is still playing at a top level and riding an NFL-best streak of 201 consecutive starts. The season-long absence of Hunter Henry (torn ACL) will sting, but Rivers will have essentially the same group of pass catchers returning, which includes Allen, Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin and Melvin Gordon. The Los Angeles Chargers expect Mike Williams, their seventh overall selection in 2017, to rebound from an injury-wrecked season. Listed at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, Williams looks ticketed for a red-zone role, but his projected weekly target share is a total mystery. Even if the improving Los Angeles defense can provide regular run-heavy game scripts, Rivers will still do his share of throwing on a team that has scored 81 percent of its touchdowns through the air since 2012. He's an underrated No. 1 fantasy passer.

Passing: 926 Yards, 8 TD, 2 INT.
Rushing: 1 Yards, 0 TD.
