Philip Rivers (QB, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

David Paul - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE:  Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Rivers’s Week Two performances against the over-discussed Eagles more than made up for his subpar Week One game against the Texans.  Rivers eviscerated the Eagles D, going for 419 yards, three TDs and a 76.6% completion rate.  Upcoming games against Tennessee, Oakland, Dallas, Indianapolis and Jacksonville are not particularly worrisome.  Rivers did a great job of mixing up his targets by distributing his passes evenly to his TE (Gates), WRs (Eddie Royal and Malcolm Floyd) and RB (Woodhead with eight receptions).  Use him in his matchups for the next several weeks as he can feast against weaker teams.
