We released a new feature today that allows waiver claims to be resolved using a blind bid auction instead of (often rank-based) priority.

How it works

In the past claims for the same player were awarded to the team with the best waiver position.

Now you can use a blind-bid auction system. Here, players are awarded to the team that submits the highest bid (if there is a tie, the player will be awarded to the team with the worst rank). Each time one of your claims is processed, the bid amount will be deducted from your remaining budget.

How to set it up

Edit your league's waiver claim options and select the initial budget for each team (also editable on a team-by-team basis throughout the year).

You can manage your claims as usual on your team's waiver claims page.

How to test it out

If you are curious as to how this works or you want to help test this for football, create a baseball league. The waiver options are exactly the same as in football.

Let us know if there are any problems or if you have any suggestions.

Thanks.

Thanks for the great upgrade. Is there anyway to auto charge a team for transactions they make after the bidding process? Ex. we want to keep bidding open until game time Sundays. Blind bidding until Thurs. followed by 1st come ,1st served until Sunday @ 12PM. We want a set amount($5) for any bid made during 1st come, 1st served period. Can this be tracked or will commish need to make an edit?

Thanks!

You'll have to track this manually and use the "edit budgets" option to keep the budgets up to date.
