Hi gang, hope I can set up this poll properly… otherwise I will be deleting this again pretty quickly…
NFL Fantasy offers three ways of running waivers
Inverse Order of Standings We did this in 2014 in the Originals. Gives teams with the poorest records the best waiver priority to claim players on waivers. Waiver priority is reset each Tuesday based on the current league standings
Waiver Acquisition Budget (WAB) We did this in 2015 in the Originals. Each team has seasonal budget which is the amount of points that each team has to bid on available players. The team with the highest bid wins that player and is charged the amount of WAB points that they bid to obtain the player.
Move to Last After Claim We did this in 2016 in the Originals. Sets the initial waiver priority based on the opposite of the draft order, but then the waiver priority only changes when a successful waiver claim is made, and that person drops to the bottom of the priority.
Now that we have tried all three ways, we can settle on a preferred way - or if you think there are merits in each waiver method then we could go round the loop again and use all three methods again for the next three seasons. If you are a returning Originals manager, or are planning to join / rejoin this season, please give your preference by next week (15 March)
- use Inverse Order of Standings from now on
- use Waiver Acquisition Budget from now on
- use Move to Last After Claim from now on
- repeat all three methods for the next three seasons
