Welcome back to the 2012 Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint! Every day for the next two weeks, SB Nation will be here to provide you with live fantasy advice as you maneuver through your fantasy football drafts. Whether you are taking part in your first ever fantasy draft, or you are a veteran playing in three re-draft leagues and two dynasty leagues, we will be here to provide insight and advice to help you win your leagues.
If this is your first time commenting at SB Nation, it is a fairly easy process. You have one of two options:

Tonight marks our first weekend chat. For Saturdays and Sundays we are operating from 4-9pm ET so you can get all the advice you need during your weekend drafts. Given the mid-week work schedule, a lot of live drafts go down on the weekend, much to chagrin of many a significant other.
As you're getting ready for your drafts. SB Nation Fantasy will have plenty of resources to help you in your drafts. The War Room is a resource in and of itself, but we'll also be updating our positional rankings throughout the coming week. For now, you can check out our latest quarterback, running back and wide receiver rankings.
Speaking of quarterbacks, today is the first matchup between Andrew Luck's Colts and Robert Griffin III's Redskins. It's only a preseason contest, but given that it is week three, the dress rehearsal nature could provide a chance to see upwards of three quarters of each rookie.
How To Post
If you have a question, go down in the comments below and post the question in the subject line. In the message portion, include a quick rundown of pertinent facts about your league. Fantasy football has evolved to a point where most leagues differ on numerous issues. In order to best assist you on draft night, we will need to know some of the basics of your league.
You don't need to spell out every single point category, but things like where you have points per reception (PPR) and whether you have passing touchdowns equal to rushing touchdowns are incredibly important in determining drafting strategy. PPR vs. non-PPR is generally the most important distinction, but if you have any other rule tweaks that impact decisions, let us know so we can provide as much help as possible.
All official SB Nation answers will come from the user SB Nation Fantasy. For tonight, that account will be run by Matthew Fairburn of Fake Teams and Mocking The Draft. Matt has been playing fantasy football since 2002 and hit big on Reggie Wayne in 2003, DeAngelo Williams in 2008 and Arian Foster in 2010. I'd suggest keeping an eye on his drafts this year!
