Yahoo! Waivers Question

Postby FF Newbie » Fri Sep 17, 2004 4:40 am

Two questions.

1) If two teams both make a waiver claim for the same player, do both teams lose their waiver priority or only the team that has the higher waiver priority and is successful?

2) If a team makes a waiver claim and no other team makes a claim, is that team's waiver priority lost or does it remain the same?

1. Only the team that is awarded the player should drop to the end of the waiver priority list.

2. Yes, you automatically drop to the end of the waiver priority list if you are awarded a player no matter how many teams requested a player.

Gunslinger is correct. Only the person who obtains the WW player falls in the WW.

And Gunslinger, bet you are looking forward to Sept 21st huh? The Dark Tower series finally concludes. I can't wait.

1) A team loses priority only if it successfully adds a player off waivers.

2) Applying the rule from the above sentence, priority is lost. It's a decision to make - "do I play it safe and make the waiver claim, or do I risk it and hope to get the player as a free agent and keep my waiver position?"

Thanks, Gunslinger et al. That's how I thought it should be, but you never know with Yahoo!...
