Fantasy Football: Final Sunday/Monday Rankings for Week 9—QB, RB, WR, TE
Brian Bahr/Getty Images
Giants tailback Ahmad Bradshaw (678 total yards, 4 TD) has rushed for 437 yards and three touchdowns in his last four games.

Here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for fantasy Week 9—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.

One last thing: Consult the NFL Weather Map before rendering final decisions on quarterbacks and receivers.
