How is most leagues waiver system?

Postby JGarrison » Wed Aug 23, 2006 10:05 am

We have a two day waiver where if a player is dropped he goes on waivers for two days etc where everyone has a shot at him. But any other players that are FA can be picked up at any time. Is that how most leagues are run? Some guys are bitching that it benifits whoever can get to their computer first if a player goes down hurt and wanna change it.

Most leagues I've been in waivers freeze on Sunday and don't run again until Wednesday. After that you can pick up on a free agent basis which eliminates most game-time injury promotions.

Although if you're using Sportsline, you can still tell everyone to run all pickups to run through the waiver system each night to eliminate this exact problem. Don't think that's possible via Yahoo although you could run some Free Agent Acquisition Budget via an email account.

Waiver system, where last pick in draft is first to pick, 2nd to last is second, etc. And after you make a claim your last ;-D

That's how all free Yahoo leagues run... With a little bit of extra work on behalf of the commissioner, that can be overcome on Yahoo, but most leagues that run on pay sites have a little bit more complicated a system...

My personal favorite is a blind-bid system, where everyone starts the year with a certain amount of fantasy (or real) cash, and they use it to bid on players from the start of the first game until Wednesday, while rosters are locked... No one knows who the other teams are bidding on, and on Wednesday, when rosters are unlocked, players are awarded to the highest bidder and $$$ totals are adjusted accordingly....
