The team who loses a starting player to injury gets moved to the top of the waiver order so they can pick up that player's backup or a replacement? I see guys talking about how they're going to pick up Michael Pittman, which is something I would like to do, but I can't because the team with Charlie Garner gets to go to the front of the line. Just wondering if this is common practice. Thanks!

I don't know; this is the e-mail we got: (I hate this rule)
Please email me if you have a player that got hurt this weekend.( and by the end of every Tue) I will move you up the Waiver wire. You must pickup the backup for that player or a player playing the same position. ( So if you lost Warner this weekend you would need to pick up E. Manning if he is available. If he is not then you can pick up the best avail QB. If you lost a WR .... obviously pick up the best WR available. RB? backup first then best available) If you pick up a WR and you lost a QB the transaction will be reversed. ***** This only applies if you have been moved up the Waiver wire due to injury ****** If you do not want to be moved up due to injury and want to pick up whomever just do send me anything and I will assume you want to stay where you are...
One league that I'm in with some friends use to do it like that. They been doing it like that for 10 years. It took me 3 years being in the league to finally convince everyone that was not the right way to do it.
This just seems to take alot of the fun out of the game. The only thing better than picking up a good BU getting a chance to start due to injury is picking up that player at the expense of an opponent.
