Welcome back to the 2012 Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint, where we'll be answering your fantasy football questions all evening through the start of Monday Night Football. MNF is back and we have an intriguing doubleheader tonight. The Baltimore Ravens host the Cincinnati Bengals, followed by the Oakland Raiders hosting the San Diego Chargers. These are two divisional showdowns between teams that could be battling for supremacy all season long.
With two matchups tonight, there will be plenty of fantasy matchups going down to the wire. I should know. I have Joe Flacco and Gates, trailing by 15 points in one of my leagues. As I've said since early in the preseason, I'm all in on the Flacco bandwagon. Of course, I'm not sure how crowded that wagon is.

Although many of you will likely have plenty of questions about tonight's games, feel free to fire off your sit/start questions for Week 2. Thursday Night Football is just around the corner, so you need to start sorting that out. In the meantime, check out our fantasy impact reports for running backs, quarterbacks and wide receivers.
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 in sorting through your starting lineup, 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) or have to start multiple flex positions are incredibly important in determining sit/start 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 fantasy football 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.
