What comes first on sunday - the lineup deadline or pllyers clearing waivers?
I want to pick up MJD off waivers but he's on waivers until Oct 7 (Sunday).
Does this mean that he'll remain on waivers until after Sunday or will he clear waivers on Sunday?
If he's going to clear waivers on Sunday then will it be before the lineup deadline?
I'm asking because I want to pick him up and drop my bye week fill in at DST (the Giants).
Here's my lineup for reference - if MJD is going to clear waivers on Sunday morning then I might be able to drop someone else (not sure who though - Rivers looks obvious but the QB's have been pretty much cleaned out so there'd be nothing for me as a backup if I lost Rivers).
QB: Schaub, Rivers WR: Steve Smith, Chad Johnson, Andre Johnson, Berrian, Andre Davis (bye week fill in) RB: Steven Jackson, Thomas Jones, Adrian Petersen (Min), Leonard (filling in for SJax) TE: Heath Miller K: Jeff Reed DST: Vikings, Giants (bye week fill in)
In my experience with the wavier wire is that yes it clears on the day it says, in your case sunday. However, I would always get the guy on my active roster the following day, in your case you wouldn't get MJD until monday. Hope that helps.
