The SB Nation Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint returns today from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET. We will be here to provide live fantasy football draft and roster advice!

Welcome back to the 2012 Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint, where we'll be answering your fantasy football questions from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET! With the NFL kicking off the regular season tomorrow night at 8:30pm ET, we decided the time has come to switch to regular season hours. Starting today, the Fantasy War Room is live Monday through Friday 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET and Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET.

Starting next week we'll have a daily theme for the War Room. We'll answer all questions, but in this intro we'll focus on specific topics. The schedule will look like this starting next Monday:

Monday: Weekend recap, MNF, Injuries
Tuesday: Waiver Wire
Wednesday: QB/TE rankings
Thursday: RB/WR rankings
Friday: K/DST/IDP, final injury report
Sunday: Sit/Start Advice, inactives

Additionally, if you have filled out your quota of fantasy leagues, I suggest you check out SB Nation's new fantasy game, Pick 6 Football. Pick 6 is an easy, fun weekly fantasy football challenge. Put together a team of 6 players while keeping your budget under $120. The highest score wins and every week there is a new winner. You can feel free to ask for Pick 6 advice in here.

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 Sheet for PPR and standard leaguess and a rundown of all the bye weeks in 2012.

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 Andrew Geiger of Casual Hoya. Andrew has been playing fantasy football since before playing fantasy football was cool. As Commissioner and member of his legendary 12-team PPR league that formed nearly a decade ago, his 'Gin & Jews' squad won the Championship in 2008 and has reached the Superbowl four years in a row. In his spare time, Andrew listens to Bruce Springsteen while scouring the waiver wire for the next big thing.

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.
