Welcome back to the 2012 Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint, where we'll be answering your fantasy football questions to get you ready for this weekend's slate of NFL action. The Giants and Cowboys got us going last night, with the Cowboys edging the G-men 24-17 behind big nights from Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray, and an unexpected performance from Kevin Ogletree. I'd imagine Ogletree will be one of the top waiver claims next Tuesday.
As we head into the weekend, final injury reports will be coming out today, which will impact many of your sit/start decisions. Drop by and inquire about these reports so we can ensure you win that fantasy regular season opener!

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!
