Rivers has been fine this year, and not much more than that. He has 11 touchdowns and eight turnovers, though he has thrown for 293 yards or more in all but one game. We're generally avoiding him away against the Bears defense in Week 8.Carr has eight touchdowns and seven turnovers this season, and hasn't surpassed 300 passing yards in any contest yet. He simply doesn't have the upside to garner a starting recommendation.
