what is new that is huge for my league is they finally enabled players to be on waivers at all times. that way FAAB actually works with all unowned players as it was designed too. in the past it just worked with players that were dropped from teams, therefore it barely came into play.
now commish can select specific days of the week where faab runs, completely eliminating first come first serve in terms of moves.
I thought the same thing so I actually used this format in my keeper basketball league. I figured if it worked there I'd use the FAAB/rolling waivers in my keeper baseball league.
It was terrible!
Everyone hated it (even though the league agreed on it before the draft). It killed interest in the basketball league. I won't be using it for baseball and would advise against anyone else using it as well.

Seriously, what didn't you and your fellow managers like? I've used the FAAB the last couple years for general waivers and my leagues liked it much better. Now with continual waivers for all players that's even better. Makes managing more of challenge because you only have 'X' amount of dollars to spend for the year so you have to chose your additions wisely.
Also, last year the team who had the best week gained an additional $10 of FAAB money. On Monday morning the commish simply added $10 to the weeks best performer thru the commish tools.
been using it for years in other leagues not like I dont know how it works. actually had to leave yahoo bc they didnt have it. It is 100% the fairest way to compete. need to avoid fastest to computer situation(im in a BIG money league no team can have any sort of advantage). you can even choose to run the auction on a nightly basis if the league is agasint only making moves 1 or 2 days a week. it still eliminates first come first serve.
Yes, agree, this could be a "game changer" since the unemployed bum who sits on his computer 24/7 will no longer have an advantage of snagging players at 2am while others are sleeping or working. Gives all managers equal change on all players.
