Bidding on waivers work because there is a resolution time when the high bid wins. How do you want this to work for free agents when they are perpetually free agents? Putting everyone on waivers at all times also doesn't quite work, because again you lose that resolution time. Unless you want something like, "Waivers are always cleared on (a particular day of the week), and all unowned players are always on waivers."
Is that what you want? Fill me in.
EDIT: I guess you *could* also do something like, "If someone wants a free agent, they bid on them. The league is then notified the player is up for auction, and it resolves X days later." Is that what you want?
Bidding on FA works in weekly leagues.
Example: Starting lineups and rosters lock at 11am on Monday morning.
You can then establish a blind bidding period to run for that week for FA. (11:30 am Monday - 5pm Friday). After the process runs, you can either (a) lock FA for the week, (b) run another shorter blind bidding period to account for players dropped or (c) have a first come first serve period.
We use it in Football and it works great. I'm not sure it will work for daily leagues.
