Daily Waivers similar to fantasy football
Are you able to add an option to have baseball waivers process the same as football? That is, all players are FA until their game starts on that day. Once their game starts, they’re on waivers. Then the next day at some time in the morning, the waiver process runs and all unclaimed players go back to FA until their game starts. This is the way it’s done in football except instead of one day a week, it’s done every day. Unlike the current continuous waiver option, it allows for last minute pickups and unlike the all FA all the time option, it prevents a first come first served reward system. Please do this, it would make your product for baseball superior to most if not all.
This already exists with standard waivers. Check out more info here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/fantasy-baseball/sln6811.html

Currently, owners who are awake at 12am PT get their pick of FAs for the day. This would give everyone a chance to make a waiver claim on unowned players for the next day, while still allowing same-day pickups after the waiver process clears.
I found this same suggestion in a previously closed suggestion, in which the developer claimed it was already an option. The suggestion must have been misread, because the feature does not exist in the current system.

I have gradually started moving more leagues over to Yahoo. For years I hated that anyone you picked up did not show up on your team until the following day. Now even with waivers allowing same day add/drops the system is still flawed. Once a guy plays you cannot drop him until the following day. Same goes for anyone on waivers that played that day with adding them. The way it should be is that once the first games of the day start anyone dropped or added does not show up on your roster until the following day. Up until the first game of the day any adds or drops should take effect immediately. Really like the site and everything that it offers but PLEASE FIX THE WAIVER PROCESS!!!!!!
