I have been using the FAAB on CBS for the last four years. I am a fan of it and feel that it works great. Now to you questions.1) Regarding waivers on dropped players - Can you set length of days for the waiver period (say 2 days) & is there a minimum of number days a player can be on waivers once a player is dropped?
The answer is yes. You can set for either 1, 2 or 3 days. We have ours at one day. This means that if a player is dropped on Tuesday, he will be eligible for the FAAB run of 1:07 AM ET on Thursday. It runs always at 1:07 ET. You can set the FAAB to run every day of the week or only the days that you want. Ours runs every day but still in the example above the dropped player would have to wait a full day before he was eligible for it. == The minimum is one day.2) Regarding free agents - I want my league members to be able to put in a bid for a free agent once games are in process on say Tuesday and have the winner receive the player before games start on Wednesday. Is this possible?
No, you can't do that. The FAAB always runs at 1:07 AM ET.
3) Can the FAAB system handel the following set up: A player is dropped and is put on waivers for 2 days, allowing all teams extra time to consider the waived player - AND - while the website preforms this task it will still treat free agents as in question #2 above on a daily basis? Bottom line - are these two tasks able to work together using FAAB.
Not sure what you mean. If your waivers are set for two days and a player is dropped Monday, he would be elibgible for the FAAB run of Thursday AM. Any other player that has cleared waivers could be bid on at anytime that the FAAB runs.
If you have any other questions, let me know.
