Fantasy Football: Final Sunday/Monday Rankings for QB/RB/WR/TE
Streeter Lecka/Getty Images
Broncos QB Peyton Manning (2,975 yards passing, 24 TD) has thrown for either 300 yards or three touchdowns in his last four road games.

Here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for fantasy Week 12—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: Please consult the NFL Weather Map before settling all lineup dilemmas.
