It sucks if you miss out on the good pick-ups only because your computer access is limited on the weekends, or immediately following the games.... Truly competitive leagues should offer a fair chance for everyone to pick up players, and not rely on whoever has the most time on the internet....


agreed.

and, in some workspaces, access to all fantasy material and websites is firewalled. so if someone breaks their ankle in practice and their backup instantly becomes that week's starter, it's not indicative of anything other than access that one person could snatch them up an hour later.

to the extent that fantasy football rewards knowledge and acumen, i don't believe that is reflected in having instantaneous pickups but rather it can be reflected by more long-term planning and attention. in my baseball league, we changed it from instantaneous pickups to waivers running every night at 3am. so you had to be on your toes a little bit... if you missed the news monday, may be too late tuesday. but you didn't have 12 idiots sitting on rotoworld hitting refresh all day, either.

I think this topic is regarding FA pickups. In which case it's first come first serve. May the smartest and fastest owner win. Does it suck yes, but it's all part of the game. Who'd ever thunk samkon gado would be this crazy FA beast.


You're right that I'm talking about the priority list coming into play for players that have been dropped to the WW AS WELL AS all other Free Agent pickups. Thats why I think it sucks.. perhaps in most leagues WW pickups are treated differently than FA pickups?

no, they're not. not in fantasy football, anyways.

in the majority of football leagues, free agents are frozen at the start of sunday's games. and then they're all collectively put on waivers until tuesday or wednesday to give everyone a crack at them. so what you're really talking about is, "free agent pickups off of waivers" if you want to really split hairs on it. or you can just call it the "waiver wire" since the term has become interchangeable, anyways.
