Yahoo waiver error

Postby mattUTD20 » Sun Nov 05, 2006 8:33 pm

I'm trying to claim a player that clears waivers as of tomorrow and drop someone who played today and I get some error. Is there anyway around this or am I screwed?

You have to wait until 3AM EST to drop a player that you already played today. You can drop a player that was on your bench right now though.

Are waiver claims processed at the same time that happens?

Not sure what you mean. I just know that if you start a player you can't drop him until 3AM EST (after Midnight PST). But you can drop a player that sat on the bench.

The only player I want to drop to pick up the player off waivers is a player I played today. So I can't drop that player until 3am EST so I can't make a waiver claim until 3am EST. If waiver claims are processed at 3am EST then there's no way I can pick him up. Does that make sense? Basically I'm just wondering what time the waivers claims get processed.

Look at your league settings and it will tell you when waiver claims get processed.

If it says that the player clears waivers on 11/6, I'm pretty sure that means he'll clear waivers at 3AM EST tomorrow night...when 11/6 is officially over on the west coast.

It doesn't specify, it only says 'Follow Waiver Rules'. I'll just be up at 3am est and see what happens I guess.

In case anyone runs into the same problem or is interested, waiver claims are not processed at the same time players are unlocked so you can make a waiver claim at 3am est.
