How do waivers work?

Postby rib217 » Mon Oct 11, 2010 2:32 pm

I just joined a league that started Week 5(better late than never); I have only played fantasy football once before in 2005 so I'm still trying to get into the swing of things.

I have put in three waiver claims; waives happen on Wednesday then its a free for all the rest of the week. My question is this:
Will I only get one of those three claims? or can I get all three? If I do get more than one, where does my waive position go to? Any insight on the waiver process would be helpful. Thanks in advance

It depends on the site and how the WW process is set up by your commish. Generally, yes, you can get all 3 processed. Once you get one, you go to the end of the line, then when you get to the front again, the next claim is made and so on. Depending on how many others make claims will determine where you end up for next week.

what league management are you using (yahoo, CBS, ESPN, MFL, etc)?
they're all a little different, but in general as long as you put in 3 claims that dont conflict with each other you should get all 3 players, at least on Yahoo and CBS (i dont play ESPN). also assuming you dont have any weekly transactions limits

example:
drop Player A for Player X
drop Player B for Player Y
drop Player C for Player Z

MFL you have to submit claims in rounds
Rd 1
drop Player A for Player X
drop Player B for Player Y
drop Player C for Player Z
Rd 2
drop Player B for Player Y
drop Player C for Player Z
Rd 3
drop Player C for Player Z

you're waiver position will all depend on how many claims everyone else makes, but in general if you make 3 claims and anyone else makes 1 or 2 you'll go to the bottom

hope that helps

WAIVER SYSTEM

Section 1. Release:
(a) Whenever a player who has finished the season in which his fourth year of credited service has been earned under the Bert Bell/Pete Rozelle Plan is placed on waivers between February 1 and the trading deadline, his contract will be considered terminated and the player will be completely free at any time thereafter to negotiate and sign a Player Contract with any Club, and any Club shall be completely free to negotiate and sign a Player Contract with such player, without penalty or restriction, including, but not limited to, Draft Choice Compensation between Clubs or First Refusal Rights of any kind, or any signing period. If the waivers occur after that time, the player’s Player Contract will be subject to the waiver system and may be awarded to a claiming Club. However, if such player is claimed and awarded, he shall have the option to declare himself an Unrestricted Free Agent at the end of the League Year in question if he has a no-trade clause in his Player Contract. If such player does not have a no-trade clause and the Player Contract being awarded through waivers covers more than one additional season, the player shall have the right to declare himself an Unrestricted Free Agent as set forth above at the end of the League Year following the League Year in which he is waived and awarded.
(b) Whenever a player who has finished less than the season in which his fourth year of credited service has been earned under the Bert Bell/Pete Rozelle Plan is placed on waivers, the player’s Player Contract will be subject to the waiver system and may be awarded to a claiming Club.

Section 2. Contact: Coaches or any other persons connected with another NFL Club are prohibited from contacting any player placed on waivers until such time as the player is released by the waiving Club.

Section 3. Ineligibility: Any NFL player who is declared ineligible to compete in a preseason, regular season or postseason game because of a breach by any NFL Club by whom he is employed of waiver procedures and regulations, or any other provision of the NFL Constitution and Bylaws, will be paid the salary or other compensation which he would have received if he had not been declared ineligible, which, in any event, will be a minimum of one week’s salary and, when applicable, expense payments.

Section 4. Notice of Termination: The Notice of Termination form attached hereto as Appendix G will be used by all Clubs. If possible, the Notice of Termination will be personally delivered to the player prior to his departure from the team. If the Notice of Termination has not been personally delivered to the player prior to his departure from the team, the Notice of Termination will be sent to him by certified mail at his last address on
file with the Club.

Section 5. NFLPA’s Right to Personnel Information: The NFL shall inform the NFLPA of player personnel transactions communicated in the Personnel Notice between the NFL and its member Clubs concerning the termination or trading of players including awards on waivers, termination through waivers, confirmation of trades or any change in the status of players (e.g., placed on Reserve Injured, etc.). The NFL will make best efforts to communicate the information referred to in this Article to the NFLPA on the same day, but in no event later than noon on the next day. A player who is terminated shall, upon request at or around the time of termination, be informed by the terminating Club of any claims made upon him by NFL Clubs during that League Year. The same information will be provided to the NFLPA if requested.

Section 6. Rosters: The NFLMC shall supply the NFLPA with an opening day and final roster for each Club. Rosters shall consist of the following categories of players: Active; Inactive; Reserve Injured; Reserve Physically Unable to Perform; Exempt Commissioner Permission; Non Football Illness/Injury; Practice Squad.

Section 7. Procedural Recall Waivers: A player with four or more Credited Seasons who is subject to procedural recall waivers from the Reserved/Retired or Reserve/Military status, and who opts for Free Agency in lieu of assignment, cannot, during the same season, re-sign or return to the Club that originally requested such waivers.
