Disappointment -- Waivers Weekly League
It's been a year now with multiple people commenting on this issue and yahoo still hasn't fixed it. Waivers --> Weekly --> FAAB Continuous --> Monday. If I put a waiver request in for a player x on Sunday, on Monday the waiver processes, but Yahoo's system doesn't allow you to include that player in your lineup for that week. You have to wait an entire week before you can include that player. This is absurd! So that means, we have to set the processing day to Sunday in order to include that player x in our lineup for that following week, which means that we cannot look at free agents on Sunday, which is the day most of us look at free agents. Something needs to happen here to fix this.
The goal: our league wants to be able to look at free agents for the entire week including Sunday. We want that player claim to process Monday morning. And we want that player to be included into that week's lineup so that we don't have to wait an entire week before we can edit him into our lineups.
Hope this can be fixed, or we may have to to look to CBS or ESPN which allow this to work properly.

Yahoo is the only league that works this way. If you can adjust your lineup all day on Monday, there's no reason to exclude players claimed Monday morning from that week's lineup. Please fix.

Yea, I should be able to put my bids in on sunday night and have them available monday morning.
Stefan, you said it again! Saturday does not work. The idea here is people want to make waiver bids on Sunday and insert the players they won into their roster on Monday.

Changing the setting to Saturday ( which would actually be Sunday waivers) still leaves the entire league vulnerable to injuries on Sunday.. bids placed Sunday night for Monday waivers absolutely need to be available to play that Monday.

Same problem in my league! We need to get this fixed! Continuous waivers setting, Monday waivers (bid Sunday night) players won can't be used until the next week 8 days later... common sense would tell you that all leagues will want the last possible day (Sunday night) to be a day they can add last minute players due to injuries... it's only week 2 and we have already had 3 different issues with this. One team has played 2 weeks in a row down a player!
Change your setting to Saturday instead of Sunday.
