I'm bringing this back up because its all i could find and I'm tired of searching for a lost topic.
When does Yahoo clear waivers????????
This was 3 years ago, so who can tell me how early in the morning I need to stay up.
I think it's actually a 2 step process - but I could be wrong.
When I see players clear waivers after the draft, they clear at midnight PST and become FA's. Those players who have a waiver claim in then sit there for a while (still with the 'w' and date next to their name) while the waiver process sorts things out.
In that particular case, you can actually see which players are being claimed before the waivers process. I believe I have put in a waiver claim on one of those players at that point and ended up getting that player. That would have been a season or two ago - so maybe it was a fluke or maybe the glitch is fixed
So, I would look for other players who are on waivers for the same time frame, and mentally note which players they are (or put 'em on your watch list). Then, at midnight PST look to see if some of those players are now FA's and others are still 'on waivers' until the waiver process completes. If they are still on waivers after the others have cleared - then someone put in a claim for them.
