Fantasy Football: Final Sunday/Monday Positional Rankings for Week 16
Streeter Lecka/Getty Images
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (3,451 yards passing, 25 TD) has stellar averages of 327 total yards and three touchdowns in his last four games.

Here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for championship Week 16—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 I've stated many times, 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 finalizing any lineups.
