They absolutely are allowed! For one thing, it's the only way that people can pick up players once they have spent all their FAAB money - vital if you get a late-season DL-stint for one of your team. And through the rest of the season, it's the chance you take that no one else will bid for the player you've got your eye on.


This was one of the reasons why I liked this league last year. Especially because your waiver order is only taken into consideration as a tie-breaker.


This was my first FAAB league and it really is the way to go. ;-D

I was unaware of this last season & purposely did not make moves in efforts to save loot for the push ... which ultimately failed miserably. Rats! :-L

We are just waiting on Mods to get the Forums up, and then people can get signed in and the commissioners will kick things off.

Draft order will be determined randomly - I will be doing it using a randomising (is that a word) website for Pond Scum & N00bs, and J35J will do it for Masters.

As for starting, it will probably be officially the 17th, but I expect the commissioners will allow people to start making draft picks earlier if they are ready. There won't be any time limits on picks, however, until the 17th.

In terms of players eligible to be drafted, it will be anyone in the Yahoo player pool.

Any more questions, please ask!
