    FAAB waivers - take effect next game day?

    It would be great if there was an option to have FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budgets) work so that any pickups made on free agents are active for the very next day.

    Currently if I make a bid on a free agent player on Monday, the bids go through on Tuesday morning. The players are not available for Tuesday night's games - they are only active for Wednesday.

    I realise this uses the same system as a player on waivers wire, but it's a major complaint from the managers in my league. Essentially it places a 2-day waiting period on claiming a free agent, whereas the default system where anyone can grab one at any time lets you have them in your lineup for the very next day.

    We like the bidding system as it lets people evaluate free agents once a day and be on even footing. Plus the bidding is pretty fun! If we could sort out this one issue it would be perfect.
