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.
