    Waiver Order and Process

    Hopefully this has been resolved, because it was a disaster last year; our league was set to "Weekly rolling list based on standings", however, when it came time for the waiver requests to post, the process would give the highest waiver priority/manager ALL of his selections before it moved to the next waiver priority. A TRUE waiver system should work just like the draft; you pick and then the next person picks and so on. PLEASE tell me you've fixed this "bug" so our league will not attack me the first time it goes awry. Thank you!

    • Sorry... you are incorrect. What you are describing is the waiver option "reverse order of standings"
      If you truly had used "weekly rolling list based on standings" the guy with the worst record would only get his first waiver request, unless nobody else made any waiver requests

      • Continual rolling list w/ FAAB or without: Waiver claims are processed in waiver priority order, and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list. The list never resets.

        Reverse order of standings w/ FAAB or without: Waiver claims are processed in reverse order of standings, and successful claims do not affect waiver priority list. If your league uses weekly waivers, the last-place team each week will get all its waiver claims before the second-to-last place team, etc.

        Weekly rolling list based on standings w/ FAAB or without: Waiver claims are processed in reverse order of standings, and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list.

    • I 100% agree with 387. FAAB is the MOST FAIR way to process waivers. It provides another element of strategy, and doesn't reward bad teams.

    • FAAB waivers is the best way to go. it gives everyone a chance to improve their squad. its the most fair and competitive I thinkl

    • A TRUE waiver system would not continually reward bad drafting (i.e. being at bottom of the standings) week after week. Better to go continual rolling list initially based on opposite order of draft (i.e. last pick in draft gets initial #1 waiver priority). Never had a problem or bug with this setup over 5 years/25 leagues.
