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.

What happens after the first round of bidding is done (i.e. on Wednesday). Does it go back to the first come first serve option? Do the dropped players go into waivers again and the bidding system does another round?

You can submit as many claims as you want--we'll process them all.

After claims process on Wednesday (or whatever day your league selects) all players not dropped during the claims are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
