This only makes sense if you had Alexander on your depth chart even before you even knew he was on your team, which sounds really weird.
Personally, I think you just got victimized by trying to be too cute with your waiver rules. If I was commish, I would say that the week that your player goes on the IR you get super-priority on the waiver wire, not to be saved forever until you decide you want it. Honestly, that's what caused the whole snarl.
Also, you said yourself that your lineups are due before the first game of the week, which would be Thursday. And as of Thursday, Alexander looked like a good play. So just because you knew on Sunday that Portis was going to play doesn't mean you wouldn't have played Alexander on Thursday.
Take the loss and deal.
