Concerning FAAB in pro leagues (horrible idea!) what will the FAAB budget be? Will zero dollar bids be accepted? Playing the wire to its fullest extent is what makes pro leagues enjoyable. Not so sure I will play in any until I learn all of the rules explicitly. Why ruin a great produce anyway?
Default budgets are $100 and $0 bids are accepted. You can read more about FAAB waivers here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/free-agents-sln6519.html. This makes it more fair for East Coast managers who would have to stay up until 3:00 am for free agents while it would only be midnight for West Coast users.

Thank you for another enjoyable fantasy season. Two complaints, though. This year was my first experience with bidding for free agents. Didn't like it. Much simpler and more equitable to award competing claims based on waiver priority. Also, why have a Can't Cut list? Star players get injured or tank, and managers are stuck with them. This year I was saddled with Nolan Arenado (sub-par year) and Alex Bregman (sub-par year, injured) until almost the very end. Let managers decide when to give up on a player, irrespective of his past or current performance.
