The SB Nation Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint goes live today at 6:00 p.m. ET. We will be here to provide live advice as you work through your draft boards and try to set yourself up for success.
Editor's Note: The Tuesday, August 21 War Room is LIVE HERE
Welcome 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.
The Fantasy War Room will provide daily advice on who to pick, and who not to pick. You may be tempted by Jonathan Dwyer after last night's strong performance, but you can't forget Isaac Redman and Rashard Mendenhall are the names in play in Pittsburgh. You may be tempted by Jake Locker's athleticism now that he has been named the Titans starter, but you can't forget the potential importance of early round QBs in this current passing era. We'll be here tonight and every night over the next two weeks to help you sort through your options. During the week we will operate from 6:00 p.m. ET to 10:00 p.m. ET, and on Saturday and Sunday we will operate from 4:00 p.m. ET to 9:00 p.m. ET.
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 David Fucillo of Niners Nation. While David is a 49ers fan, he has generally been able to get around his 49ers biases in his draft advice. Of course, feel free to take his 49ers suggestions (and I suppose Cowboys suggestions, to a lesser extent!) with the proverbial grain of salt.
Others are more than welcome to throw in their own two cents. Just click on the reply button and let people know what you think works for a given draft situation.
As we get started in today's first War Room chat, you might find yourself wondering about Dez Bryant's knee, where to consider Dwayne Bowe given his only recent return to the Chiefs or what to make of Greg Jennings' return from a concussion. Answers may vary from league set-up to league set-up, but in regards to all three of these, I'd say 1) no big deal, 2) should be fine and 3) concussions and Jordy Nelson leave him a little bit worrisome.
Feel free to fire away your questions and we'll get you prompt replies, particularly given that some of you may be in live drafts during your questioning. Additionally, we will curate the questions and answers following the chat and tomorrow we will get you a rundown of the topics discussed.
