Yahoo Waivers - please explain

Postby Mountainhawks » Mon Jul 31, 2006 12:01 pm

Can someone explain to me how the waiver work in the Yahoo free league? What does the waiver time.

Long and short of it, when can players be picked up on waiver and when can the be picked up as Free agents.

Thanks!

From fantasysports.yahoo.com

"All players dropped from a team's roster are immediately placed on waivers. During this waiver period -- two days in Public Leagues and anywhere from zero to seven days in Custom Leagues -- anyone in the league can place a claim on the player.

So, if a player in a Public League is dropped on a Wednesday afternoon, all managers can claim him until Friday at 11:59 pm PT. The player will then be assigned to his new team roughly 4-8 hours after the claim deadline.

To find the length of the waiver period in your league, check the League Settings page, which can be found via a link on your League Overview page.

If more than one manager claims the same player, the team that is highest on the Waiver Priority List is given the rights to the player. The priority list is initially set based on the reverse of the draft order. However, each time you add a waived player to your roster, you are pushed to the back of the list, so the team with the lowest waiver priority will always be the team that completed the last successful waiver claim. This "rolling" list stays in effect for the entire season.

Your current position on the waiver priority list will be displayed along with your league standings.

If nobody claims a player during the waiver period, he becomes a free agent. In a Custom League with no waiver period, all dropped players automatically become free agents.

If you place a player on waivers, you cannot reclaim that player until after the waiver period has expired. If, however, you decide that you do not wish to waive the player, you can cancel the transaction -- provided it has not yet been processed -- by viewing it from your team page and clicking on the "Cancel" button.

If you place a claim on more than one waived player at a time, each pending transaction will appear on your Team Page along with its current position in your waiver order. All new claims get appended to the end of the list, but you can alter this priority by viewing each pending claim and changing its priority in the box provided."

so all of the FA are fair game 24/7. There is no way to set up waivers on those players.

In the free version the easiest way to run a waiver system is for the commish to lock rosters at the beginning of the first game every week, and then let everyone in the league e-mail him their waiver requests... He processes them manually on Tuesday night, assigns the players to their new teams, and unlocks the rosters Wednesday morning.... At which point all remaining FA's are available until the beginning of the next week's game, when he repeats the process...
