In our league, free agency pickups are turned off gameday or 5 mins before the first game. Typically, it opens up again on Tuesday and processes the waiver wire according to some order. I thought as you used the WW you were sent to the back of the line and the order was preserved until the next week. However, it seems like in our league, the order is determined by record, and the worst always has first pick. Is that normal?
I think the order should be preserved until the next week, and free agency pickups shouldn't move you to the back. This lets people move up in the WW order until they choose to use it. Also, I think it should start in reverse draft order.
I felt like I was screwed over last season because I was at the bottom of the WW for the first 7 weeks, all my losses came at the end of the season.
