The Chargers on Monday fired OC Ken Whisenhunt. The veteran coach was in his 4th season as coordinator, after previously running the Chargers' offense in 2013. This year's crew sits just 23rd in scoring and has particularly struggled to run the ball. L.A. still ranks a decent 15th in yards per play, though, and 14th in Football Outsiders' overall offensive DVOA (through Week 7 games). HC Anthony Lynn figures to take over the play calling. Perhaps we'll see a bit more rushing volume after the switch, but the Chargers will need to get much better blocking to improve efficiency on that front. We're not adjusting our fantasy outlook for any Chargers players on this news.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chargers plan to have QBs coach Shane Steichen call plays, "though coach Anthony Lynn will be heavily involved & give input."

Injury Predictor

Rivers hasn’t missed a game since becoming a starter in 2006. A concussion rendered him "questionable" for Week 11 last season, but Rivers hasn't otherwise dealt with a noteworthy injury since his ACL tear in January 2008. His O-line has improved recently as well, ranking 3rd in Football Outsiders' adjusted sack rate for 2017.
