Luck destroyed Jacksonville. Rivers should have at least 70% similar success. So in other words, the Chargers quarterback is a must-start unless you have a better option off of this list.
Newton performed poorly against the Steelers in Week 3. He also looked far from healthy. Monitor this situation closely but if Week 1 was any indication, the Panthers won't hesitate to sit out their franchise quarterback if they feel he will be put in a situation that could really hurt him physically.
