Say there are two players available on waivers, but I have only one roster player I want to drop. I want either of the two players but can't fit both.
I know that I can claim both waived players using just one roster player to drop. This creates two separate transactions but for just one roster spot. I have them as priority one and priority two. I've never actually run this scenario all the way through. Will this work, or will both waiver claims fail because the roster player is being used in a pending transaction?
What I want to happen is: if the first waiver goes through, then the second will fail since the roster player has already been dropped. Thats fine as I'll still get the first player while dropping the one roster player. If the first waiver doesnt clear then I should get a shot at the second waiver.
It would be nice if this works this way. I'm in this situation. I have a decent waiver chance to get one of two guys, and I expect that others may be putting in claims on both players. I dont want to experiment and risk not getting either. I'd rather know what the scoop is first. Does anyone know?
