Seeing as we've started our official Cageside Seats Fantasy Football League, here's some good news for you folks hoping to compete with The General.
SB Nation is launching a new fantasy football initiative today (Aug. 20, 2012) to provide real-time advice as you power through your drafts in the coming weeks. At 6 p.m. ET today, SB Nation will be launching the Fantasy War Room sponsored by Sprint at SBNation.com/Fantasy.
The War Room will feature our own fantasy football experts providing live advice to help you through your draft, and then well into the regular season. While you are going through your draft, you can pop into the War Room and fire off questions, to which you'll get an immediate response four hours a day, seven days a week. Following each chat session, the discussion will be pulled out and published in a feature looking at the big topics from the day. During the regular season, the War Room will feature discussion about injuries, the waiver wire, and sit/start advice.
While Twitter provides plenty of opportunities for live discussion, our commenting system creates a more structured chat that will make it easier to follow the questions and answers. And if you feel like chiming in to say why SB Nation Fantasy is wrong, it's as simple as clicking the Reply button.
The War Room gets started today at 6 p.m. ET and will run until 10 p.m. ET on SBNation.com/Fantasy. The preseason schedule will run as follows until Sept. 4:
Monday through Friday: 6 p.m.-10 p.m. ET
Saturday-Sunday: 4 p.m.-9 p.m. ET
Good luck, Cagesiders.
