Summary

Rivers started hot in 2014: in the first eight games, he completed 68% of his passes for 2,213 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions (good for fantasy QB3 over that period). In the second half of the season, Rivers struggled through a back injury as well as a rib injury, and was fantasy QB19 from weeks 9-17. He'll be 34 heading into the 2015 season, and while he has terrific upside potential as a passer, his age and accumulated punishment behind a subpar offensive line are causes for concern.

Chargers | SD will use shotgun less (Wed Aug 19, 03:27 PM) - San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers and the rest of the San Diego offense will not be lined up in the shotgun as much in 2015. Rivers will line up under center more this season in an attempt to create a more balanced offense, according to head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy added that the Chargers' opponent will influence how often they use shotgun.

Our View: The Chargers want to feature rookie RB Melvin Gordon as much as possible. Gordon has the speed to get by defenders in a flash. We like him as a RB2 with RB1 upside this season.
