ESPN FAAB Question

Postby bobnerns » Thu Sep 30, 2010 1:47 am

I'm the commish of a standard 10-man ESPN FFB league. I set transactions to use a $100 Free Agent Acquisition Budget with the minimum bid of $1 (also this is my first year in any sport using FAAB). After week 2 one player had already spent all $100 (mostly on Brandon Jackson). I assumed he would no longer be able to acquire any players off waivers/free agency because he had no money to bid with. But this morning when our weekly waiver claims process, he had picked up a player for $0.

First of all, how is this possible when the minimum bid is $1? Second, can I change a setting that will no longer allow him to bid $0 and acquire any players because I feel he doesn't deserve to make any more changes for the rest of the season?

I'm positive because our league doesn't have free agency, only waivers. Plus the waiver report says he picked the played up off waivers.

Anyone have an idea?
