Per Saints beat reporter Nick Underhill, QB Derek Carr (concussion, rib, right shoulder) has passed NFL concussion protocol and will be the starter in Week 14 vs. the Panthers. Fantasy managers who had planned on using backup QB Jameis Winston in lineups this weekend will need to prepare a pivot move. As for Carr, he's still dealing with a shoulder issue and should be viewed with tempered expectations. The good news is that the Panthers rank 20th in pass-defense DVOA this season and provide a good enough matchup for Carr to net decent QB2 value.
