    Waiver Wire- PLEASE help

    So, my issue is that we have a 3 free agent pickup limit for each week. That works fine, however I have had several complaints from people who reach their 3 player limit by Sunday and then can NOT pickup players for Monday morning.

    I tried to reset each teams moves to zero on Sunday night, but it still would not allow pickups. Please help... It seems like the system should recognize that a pickup on Monday morning at 4:30 AM would be for a new week?? Right?

    Any suggestions?

    • The way I understand it Michael, the simple answer is ...no. In any given week where move limits are in place, the final add or pick-up cannot count towards the following week if the limit for moves has already been reached. This means if a team has 5 moves per week, they can use all 5 any way they choose in that week, regardless of when the transaction occurs, but cannot exceed that limit in anticipation of when that move will be counted as a move, meaning if you used all 5 moves, you have to wait until early Monday morning when the week starts new... if you only used 4 and had a waiver pending, no problem...or if you used 4 and wanted to make an add Sunday night for Monday, no problem... that's 5, but you cannot make a 6th move and tell yourself it should count on the following week, that's why it's called "managing" a roster.
