Fantasy War Room: Roster Cuts Have Modest Fantasy Football Impact

The SB Nation Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint returns tonight at 6:00 p.m. ET. We will be here to provide live advice following the close of the NFL preseason.

Welcome back to the 2012 Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint, where we'll be answering your fantasy football questions from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET!

The preseason is officially a wrap as roster cuts have been coming in fast and furious all day today. Most teams have been waiting to officially announce their cuts, but Twitter is naturally abuzz with news from league sources, player tweets and other assorted sources.

Even if you are in a dynasty league, these roster cuts hold little value for fantasy football fans. Aside from the deepest of leagues, fantasy football focuses on the top end of players, which means most of these guys are not sniffing fantasy rosters in 2012. There might be some talent down the road, but for now they will generally not impact your draft and roster decisions.

Where it does get at least a little interesting is the potential for trades. Dolphins QB Matt Moore is not exactly a great fantasy option, but he is reportedly on the trade block. He has had his moments in the past, so a trade could boost his value back up again.

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, wide receiver and tight end rankings. And don't forget our Top 100 Cheat Sheets for PPR leagues and standard leagues.

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 Jason Chilton of Blogging The Boys and Barking Carnival. Jason recently joined our fantasy staff and has put together a 187-page fantasy preview PDF. Download it HERE!
