Welcome back to the 2012 Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint, where we'll be answering your fantasy football questions all morning until 1:00 p.m. ET kickoffs. That's right, football is back and fantasy football is kicking into high gear. One win does not make a season, but getting off to strong start is always welcome, particularly given that the playoffs will be here sooner than you can imagine.

We'll be here all morning until kickoff to answer your sit/start questions and provide updates on all the injury news around the league. We have a good idea about the status of most players, but there are still some questionable guys out there that will impact your sit/start decisions.

If this is your first time commenting at SB Nation, it is a fairly easy process. You have one of two options:

1) On the top right side of the page, you'll see Log In and Sign Up. Click on Sign Up.
2) Inside this post, scroll to the bottom of the page, and you should see an option that says "Something to say? Choose one of these options to log in." In there you can create a new SB Nation Account.

As you are getting ready to set your lineup this week, we have some useful cheat sheets to help you out. Make sure and check review our Week 1 rankings across the board: Quarterbacks, Running Backs, Wide Receivers, Tight Ends, Defense/Special Teams and Individual Defensive Players (IDP).

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.
