Here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for fantasy Week 6—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 The Fantasy Blog, I'm 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.
