Fantasy Football: Final Sunday/Monday Rankings for Week 5—QB, RB, WR, TE
Andy Lyons/Getty Images
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (846 yards passing, 5 TD) has racked up 300 yards and/or two touchdowns in all three games this season.

Just hours before kickoff, here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for fantasy Week 5 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 guy 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.
