Quarterback Rankings Week 16

Cam Newton: Quarterback Rankings Week 16

Cam Newton: Quarterback Rankings Week 16

Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants

For perhaps the first time all season, Cam Newton is the No. 1-ranked fantasyquarterback. It is hard to trust him after an up-and-down year, but he was the No. 1 quarterback in terms of fantasy points for Week 15. Newton faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16. In Week 15, the Buccaneers held Matt Ryan to 212 yards and only one touchdown. For fantasy owners, if Newton has led you to the fantasy Super Bowl, trust him for one more week. He's the No. 3 quarterback in terms of points on the season (but will likely pass Carson Wentz for second).

Week 16 is going to be tough. Some of the top quarterbacks have difficult matchups. It could be another week with Eli Manning (above, right), Nick Foles and Brock Osweiler rounding out the top five (although that's not likely). However, Aaron Rodgers is no longer a fantasy option. Tom Brady and Drew Brees have struggled, and Ben Roethlisberger is traveling to Houston. These guys are still top options, but none have a great matchup for the fantasy finals.
