For those who can never get enough up-to-date lists, here are four revised Sunday/Monday fantasy countdowns for Week 4—including 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.

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 guy practiced twice from Wednesday through Friday, I assume he'll play and garner roughly 70 percent of his standard touches, targets or pass attempts.
