Week 11: vs Denver Broncos

All QB vs DEN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Philip Rivers had a very quiet game again last week as he didn't need to throw very often with a struggling Raiders offense on the other side. Rivers continues to be efficient though, completing nearly 70 percent of his passes last week while maintaining his streak of passing for multiple touchdowns in every game this season. With as well as Melvin Gordon is running, it is tough to expect a high ceiling from Rivers as the Chargers continue to lean on their ground game. Keenan Allen continues to lead this receiving group as he finally found the end zone last week for the first time since Week 1. Allen has been a very reliable target for Rivers this season, but he has not shown the big play ability of his wide receiver counterparts as Allen is not seeing very many downfield targets. At least he is seeing targets though, as Mike Williams didn't get a single look last week, showing off his floor as a pure touchdown-dependent option. Tyrell Williams has been more consistently involved in the offense as he has posted a couple big games and has multiple receptions in every game this season. Melvin Gordon also continues to be a big factor in this passing offense as he found the end zone for the fourth time through the air last week with five receptions for 72 yards. Gordon is now averaging four receptions and 45 receiving yards per game to help raise his fantasy floor while providing another great playmaker for Rivers to call upon--as if he didn't have enough! The Broncos passing defense has been up and down this season, ranking average at best in most categories against the pass. They got off to a very sluggish start on the season, allowing over 270 passing yards in four straight games. Since Week 5 though, the Broncos have allowed over 215 passing yards just once--to Patrick Mahomes. They received the benefit of a sluggish weather game against the Rams along with some soft matchups with Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold over that span, but this defense has at least looked serviceable since their slow start. The pass rush has been hot for Denver recently. In the four games leading up to their Week 10 bye, the Broncos racked up a league-leading 17 sacks, with the dynamic duo of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb accounting for 11.5 of those. The secondary has been subpar with only Chris Harris to lean on as a solid slot cornerback. Bradley Roby started to play better for a couple games, but he suffered an injury in Week 8 and remains questionable to return. Harris should help keep Keenan Allen in check, but both Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams should have opportunities on the outside to make some big plays in this one.
