San Francisco was 20th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, but Newton is coming off a shoulder surgery and the 49ers have added some pieces on D. Newton is a low-end QB1 in Week 1. The Rams were just 22nd against fantasy quarterbacks, but with Luck coming off shoulder surgery, he may be a little rusty and that is assuming he is healthy enough to play.
