Can you change from weekly to daily roster changes?

Postby maddog2020 » Wed Apr 05, 2006 5:12 pm

After the draft & once the season starts, is it possible to change a league from weekly roster changes to daily roster changes? The league I'm in now is set up as weekly but we've had requests to change it to daily. Before we even put it to a vote, I wanted to see if it was even possible.

Thanks!!!

Here's a question... let's see if anyone knows the answer...

If I put in three different waiver claims, where the players come off waivers on different days, how does the order of the claims work?

Frex:

1. Gil Meche for Sean Marshall (W - Apr 9)
2. Hector Luna for Reggie Abercrombie (W - Apr 8)
3. Hector Luna for Brian Bannister (W - Apr 9)

will my #1 waiver priority be wasted on Abercrombie? Will it hold Abercrombie on waivers until the first one goes off? will it save my waiver claim and pick up Marshall off waivers, meanwhile picking up Abercrombie only if he makes it through waivers to Free Agent?
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

Another good question for Leftovers. ;-D

I would assume #2 would go through since Abercrombie would become a free agent and the waiver move would not be needed if it held off until #1 happened, but I've never tried it, so can't be 100% certain.

How about another waiver question... If you are the only person who claims a player on waivers, does it still count as a waiver claim? Or does it simply act as if the person was a FA? Like on eBay where you can't bid against yourself type of a thing.

I know the answer to this one :-B .

Yes, it still burns your waiver, even if no one else put in a claim.

Part of the gamble of submitting the waiver claim. It's that way on Sportsline as well. ;-)

And I'm not a n00b, just old and forgetful sometimes. :*)

That's true. From past experience I thought this was how it worked, but wasn't for sure.
