    Waiver Priority

    Can anyone, anyone at all tell me how a first place team, with more wins, more points, many more successful waiver pickups would have priority over a last place team? It is not a case of first come first serve. Could the priority have been manually assigned prior to season? I'm puzzled?

    • There are different types of priority. It can be determined by standings (what you are talking about) but it can also be a rolling list. This means after the draft everyone is assigned their number by what pick they had. 1st pick of the draft gets the last priority, last pick would have #1 priority. As each team uses a waiver, they are moved to the back of the line. Anyone who DOES NOT use a waiver would move forward as anyone who DID use a waiver moves to the end one by one. This makes it more fair to someone who may be having a good season to have a fair shot at getting a popular waiver player. I am 4-0 in one league and have the #1 waiver myself. I have not used a waiver at all this year. I'm saving it for something BIG...like a major injury that makes a FA a starter for the season. This is likely how your waiver are determined. Go to "League", "Scoring and Settings" then look in the first section for "Waiver Type". Does it say "continual rolling list?"
