Basically, after the season starts, FAs are always on waivers, and you can try claiming them for $0 or being the high bidder to override your waiver priority.
I'd be open to a FAAB this year.
Wait, so just to clarify, this isn't real money, right? It's effectively just 100 points that you start the year with?

100 schrute bucks
What's the conversion rate between schrute bucks and stanley nickels?
But seriously, how were you imagining this working? Would FAAB only apply to waiver adds and not FA's? If they did apply to FA's how often would we be able to run them? Preferably more often than once a week I presume...
In a Free Agents Acquisition Budgets (FAAB) waivers system, each manager receives a dollar amount to place blind bids on players that are on waivers. The manager with the highest bid at the end of the waiver period claims that player and that bid amount is deducted from the team's acquisition budget. FAAB Rules
The FAAB does not apply to free-agent pickups. All free agents can be picked up on a first-come, first-serve basis, without bids. Bids are hidden to other managers until a player clears waivers. The winning bid will display in the Transaction log. Players with multiple bids placed on them will display under "FAAB Bids" on a league's Transactions log. If only one owner bid on a player, that transaction will not display under "FAAB Bids." The FAAB system charges you the exact amount you bid if your bid is successful. It will never automatically adjust your bid to beat any other bids by $1. The default FAAB budget for teams is $100. The commissioner of a custom league may change this amount at any time throughout the season by using the Acquisition Budgets tool, found in the "Team Management" section of the Commish Tools page. You can submit $0 bids, and if no one else bids more, you will be able to claim that player. There isn't an option to force managers to make a minimum bid amount.
If multiple managers place an equal bid on a player, there are three tiebreaker options:
Continual rolling list: Waiver claims are processed in waiver priority order and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list. Reverse order of standings (Football only): Waiver claims are processed in reverse order of standings and successful claims do not affect waiver priority list. Weekly rolling list based on standings (Football only): Waiver claims are processed in reverse order of standings and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list.
The priority list only changes when it is used to break a tie between two owners who submit identical bids. If a team submits the highest bid and the tiebreaker is not needed to award the player, the priority list remains unchanged following that claim.
Please see the help article about enabling FAAB.
From our other league, all the free agents are on waivers for tomorrow, players that have dropped are on the regular 2-day waiver period:
You can choose to claim a free agent, and bid zero or more:
It'd be fine with me, but I suppose I'd rather make the change for 2015. If there was anybody who was stockpiling his waiver priority for the perfect time, switching to FAAB right now would destroy that. If we wait until next year, it at least gives anyone high on the list the ability to spend that waiver before it becomes useless.
BUT if those atop the list don't give two sh1ts, it's ok with me.
BTW, can we get the league forum renewed on the forum?
