Fantasy Football: Final Sunday/Monday Rankings for Week 1—QB, RB, WR, TE

For the fantasy owners who can never get enough of up-to-date lists, here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for Week 1—involving quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends (standard-scoring leagues).

Some of the rankings have been modified to support new developments from the NFL's official injury list.

But as stated many times in this blog, I am not one to overreact to a star player listed as "questionable" prior to kickoff. My rationale: Unless an asset is termed "doubtful," I assume he'll play and garner roughly 70 percent of his standard touches, targets or pass attempts.
