Fairness of Continual Rolling List waiver priority
I don’t understand the logic/fairness of the Continual Rolling List waiver priority that is used in the Yahoo Pro Leagues (assuming I understand how it works). Whether teams are requesting the same players or different players from waivers, it appears that the team with the worse waiver priority will get the later time stamp in each round of claims? So if every team took one player off of waivers each Wednesday, or two etc., the waiver priority would never change. The only way I can improve my priority is if I take fewer players than someone else. That doesn’t seem fair. I think that among the teams that take the same number of players off waivers on Wednesday, the priorities should rotate amongst the teams.
You are correct. Deciding when to use your waiver claims and when to try to get by with FA pick ups is part of the game.
