Im number 1 this week on our waiver list, and I was wondering do I have to use it or can I just let it rollover til the next week? I was thinking of getting Bess because I need help at receiver but was also thinking of just taking a chance and just try to pick him up as a FA.
It depends on your league settings, which could be one of the two following methods:
1. The waiver priority is reset each week with the worst team getting first priority and best team getting the last priority.
2. The waiver priority is set at the beginning of the season and each time a player makes a waiver claim, they move to the back of the line.
If your league is set as method number 2, then you'll hang on to that #1 spot as long as you don't make a waiver claim. If your league is set as method #1, then you might as well use the waiver claim now because you may not be number one next week if there's another team worse than yours.
