Here are four revised SundayMonday countdowns for fantasy Week 5 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: Tampa Bay, Washington, Minnesota, Pittsburgh Top 26 Quarterbacks 1. Aaron Rodgers vs. Detroit 2.
