Free agent priority
In Fantasy basketball allow teams to pick up free agents in the reverse order of standings. Why do they allow this feature in baseball and football but not basketball. Makes no sense.
Why is this horrible suggestion from over a year ago still gathering feedback?
This new $100 budget and bidding for waiver wire players in public NBA roto leagues is terrible. Aka “continuous waivers with FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) instead of free agents.”
For years I’ve enjoyed picking up waivered players based on the simple, stressless waiver priority system or simply picking up available free agents. In two leagues last year I picked up 54 and 62 players.
How can I do that now? That’s bidding less than $2 a player. You’re sucking the fun out of a season-long roto league.
Yahoo claims this new system is “fairer." It isn’t – the old waiver wire system was perfectly fine.
In fact it’s the new system that's unfair -- punishing mangers who are active and pay attention to their leagues and the NBA, and aggressively pursue waivered players or pick up free agents players without the constraints of a budget.
I traditionally manage two Yahoo public league NBA teams per season. I have one in place now. I’ll be looking for another provider for team #2.
PLEASE don't implement this change for season long MLB public leagues!
Ok, so now I am seeing that the two separate waiver requests are being numbered and identified as Waiver 1, Waiver 2. I am assuming I would need to first pursue player A ( as waiver 1), before creating the second request for player B. I hope that sounds right.
I now see the ability to "Edit Waiver Priority". However, it only applies when we are making a request using the same dollar amount. My problem isn't really solved though. What happens when I make 2 separate offers for 2 different players? For example: I hope to obtain player A for only $1 because there is less demand from other managers. If another manager does in fact outbid me for player A, well then I also hope to obtain player B at $10 due to a higher demand for player B. This doesn't necessarily mean I want player B more than player A.
Any answer to this issue?
We use to be able to rank our preferences when trying to add a free agent. Within this new FAAB system, that feature no longer exists. How did this get overlooked?
