Fantasy: Final Sunday/Monday rankings for Week 4

BY foxsports • September 28, 2014

Here are four revised Sunday/Monday countdowns for fantasy Week 4 -- 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 settling all lineup quandaries.

BYES: Arizona, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, St. Louis, Seattle
