Until they prove otherwise, the Steelers can't stop the pass, and considering Rivers is a more elite QB anyway he's your starter until further notice. If I remember correctly, the Bears have been pretty brutal against opposing QBs in the past couple of years, so I think it's actually pretty clear cut in Rivers' favor ;-D

I was looking at the wrong player! D'OH! Rivers is playing against the Vikings. I'm leaning toward Rivers again.

Either way, I'd start him :-]

That did sound weird though, cause I knew in the back of my mind the Steelers were playing someone else O:-)

Ryan is a good QB, but he doesn't hold a candle to Rivers. I'd look to trade Ryan for another RB2 and pick up a QB off of waivers to fill in on Rivers' bye week. That's the only time he should see your bench.

I've tried to trade Ryan for a strong RB2 but I haven't had any bites. At least Matt Ryan plays Carolina during Rivers' bye week

Selling QBs, especially early on before people panic and realize they're screwed, is pretty hard nowadays. The way to do this deal IMO is to package the QB and then either and RB or WR with him to upgrade your starter at a position. Just too hard to get and RB2-type for a QB2 - not going to happen more often than not ...

I can't really afford to package anyone else with Ryan. I have a bench full of sleepers.

Rivers vs the Vikings like everyone else said is the best bet. Hold on to Ryan and if he produces you should be able to trade him by week 3 for an upgrade at RB

You can't afford to deal Ryan and a sleeper or low-end starter to upgrade a starting position?
