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.

Tonight's live chat will be during the busiest night of preseason week 3. The biggest story of tonight will potentially be whether Michael Turner can show a little something extra. He has had a less than stellar preseason, and the wheels might be coming off that train soon. Jacquizz Rodgers is currently trending as hot as anybody in fantasy football. Backup running backs are always hot topics in August, but I don't think I've seen anything quite like this in some time.
David Wilson is another running back trending hot. Ahmad Bradshaw is the Giants starter, but he has been all over the place. Whereas Rodgers is a good candidate to replace Turner entirely, Wilson would seem a better bet as a simple handcuff for Bradshaw at this point.
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.
