The regulator is what regulates fuel pressure. It acts as a restriction,... and restriction to flow is what causes pressure.

If it were before the injectors,..there wouldn't be much of any pressure AT the injectors. So the fuel goes from the pump to the rails, past the injectors..then to a variable restriction (regulator). And the leftover goes back to the tank.
