Athlon Sports gives you the top rated fantasy players at each position for Week 2

We rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Website can give you.

These rankings are our suggestions, but of course as always: You are responsible for setting your own lineup.

Quarterbacks
Running Backs
Wide Receivers
Tight Ends
