Fantasy Football 2016 Quarterback Rankings: Week 2

After a strong showing in the opener in Denver, Cam Newton is the top-ranked fantasy quarterback for Week 2

Now that Week 1 is in the books, fantasy owners have a little more information regarding teams and matchups. Even though the Los Angeles Rams did not test San Francisco's defense, Cam Newton's performance against a tough Denver defense is good enough to place him atop the quarterback rankings for Week 2.
