Fantasy Football 2011: Injury Reports, Rankings, Roster Strategy and More

There is less than a week to get your fantasy roster in order and situate yourself before the 2011 NFL season kicks off. Your fantasy football championship isn't locked up just because you hit it out of the park on draft day, nor is it over if your team doesn't look exactly as you would like it to.

Like the Tom Brady injury of 2008 that Patriots fans and Brady fantasy owners hate to talk about, a fantasy star can go down in Week 1 and change the entire complexion of your season.

Like last year, a guy can come out of nowhere and explode onto the scene, just as Arian Foster did. This year is bound to feature sleeper picks who come to life and become top-notch fantasy players.

Drafting well is only half the battle. Monitoring injuries, tracking players and keeping a watchful eye over all things football is equally important to ensure that you dominate your fantasy league this year.

Rest assured, there are going to be people who panic after a slow start by one of their players and drop him prematurely. You could grab a starter that could provide a huge lift to your team if the right opportunity presents itself.

Staying informed is key in fantasy football. Ignoring injury reports and feeling comfortable with the team you drafted is a surefire way to plummet down your league's leaderboard.

On the flip side, being on top of the latest info and strategies can take your team to the top of your league.

Which injuries are nothing to worry about and which are cause for concern? How will Week 1 affect position rankings? Who should you start and who should you sit on opening day?
