waiver wire

Postby diablo99 » Tue Sep 23, 2008 5:45 pm

Ive been playing for awhile but have a question.

How does the waiver order work per a week? I thought that the person who lost and had the lowest point total per a week moved up to the number one spot on the waiver wire for that week. i know it sounds stupid but thats what i thought. I am in a 12 team league and lost and had the lowest points for the week. I am 2-1 and this was my first loss. Any feedback or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

It depends on how the commish set-up the WW. The way our order works is reverse order of the current standings has the top spot. It is not based on weekly performance, but for the entire season

Ive never been in a league that the WW changes on a weekly basis usually the Person with the 1st round draft pick starts with the Lowest waiver priority and so on. You ww is probably set like mine the only way you move down is if you pick someone of waivers wherein you should have last priority, the only way to move up if is other owners pick people off waivers

I know in my leagues waiver priority starts as reverse draft order and players move to the end of the list as they use their waiver.

Several of the free sites default to using the weekly reset of waivers based on current rank, including sportsline and espn. Others like Yahoo don't reset weekly, so you have to use your waiver claim much more wisely.

In the league's that I run, we have a waiver wire that is worst to first in order each week. We use the record first, and then use Total Points Scored Year To Date. We also use 2 decimal places...rarely is there a tie...but it still happens believe it or not.
