Fantasy Football: Final Sunday/Monday Rankings for Week 2—QB, RB, WR, TE
Ronald Martinez/Getty Images
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (362 total yards, 2 TD last week) might have to direct the Washington offense against St. Louis without No. 1 receiver Pierre Garcon (foot injury).

For the fantasy owners who can never get enough up-to-date lists, here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for Week 2—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: If a player practiced twice over the three-day period of Wednesday through Friday, I assume he'll play and garner roughly 70 percent of his standard touches, targets or pass attempts.
