How many times have you been in the middle of your draft and found yourselves scouring the Internet for any last minute tidbit of advice? How many times have you simply wanted to seek out advice from somebody as your 12th round pick is approaching?
A Top 200 cheat sheet can be valuable for overall draft strategy, but when it was last updated two weeks ago, it is not providing necessary insight based on Jonathan Dwyer's strong performance last night. You can scour the Internet and Twitter for the latest news, but there are simply too many resources that are not updating fast enough.
That changes today. Starting tonight at 6:00 p.m. ET, SB Nation Fantasy launches The Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint. The Fantasy War Room will be a live chat session at SB Nation Fantasy, designed to provide you with instantaneous advice as you are figuring out your draft conundrums. Not sure where to draft 49ers running back Kendall Hunter in your re-draft league? We'll be here to tell you he is a required Frank Gore handcuff, and a decent 2012 sleeper. Of course, if you are in a dynasty/keeper league, Hunter's value skyrockets, particularly in light of his strong preseason thus far.
This is the kind of advice we are here to offer during draft season. Everybody knows Aaron Rodgers, Rob Gronkowski and Arian Foster are among the best at their position. "Winning" your draft happens with mid and late round picks. If you are trying to decide between a pair of running backs in the tenth round of your draft, you can hop into the War Room and inquire with a comment. SB Nation Fantasy will reply to your comment with our suggestion for how to approach your quandary.
During draft season, the War Room will operate seven days a week at SB Nation Fantasy, during prime drafting periods:
Monday through Friday - 6:00 p.m. ET to 10:00 p.m. ET
Saturday, Sunday - 4:00 p.m. ET to 9:00 p.m. ET
And don't worry, the War Room will not disappear once football season starts. The draft is huge, but a league championship can be won with a few key waiver moves. Consider how many leagues were potentially swung by someone grabbing DeMarco Murray or Reggie Bush. If a similar situation presents itself this season, you will be able to swing by the War Room and get some quick, free advice.
Once the season starts, we will be here to provide you with live advice on the latest injury news, waiver wire concerns and sit/start advice. Each day will present a different theme, including positional rankings, injury news, waiver wire issues and sit/start advice. During the regular season we will operate six days a week, Sunday through Friday, so make sure and bookmark the War Room at SBNation.com/Fantasy!
