Autodraft for me!
I'm sorry. I really wish we could find a date that works for everyone, but I don' t think it is possible. You can go in and prerank players ahead of time, and that way you will autodraft the players you want. Unless you just wanna go with the default ESPN rankings.

I've dropped manning for Carson Wentz in my other league. I'm tired of him failing when i need him. Im shocked at how average Odell has looked also. This is just the oddest season so far.

Odell needs to stop letting other players troll him, and the HC of the Giants needs to realize that they need to throw the ball more.

Just so shocking how average he looks. I took him with 2nd overall in a PPR league where there is some strong motivation to win....im feeling cheated lol.

I know the feeling. I took him 3rd overall in one of my leagues and he has really frustrated me! We need to see the 2014 version come back.

This may be nitpicking, but it's the playoffs, so it's important -

How the hell does the #1 seed have a higher waiver priority than the #2 seed?! How did LTWW end up with Kenneth Farrow this morning? He was my top waiver priority. I don't get it unless waiver priority is decided by total points now. Irritating start to the day.

I'm not worried that you'll play him - I needed him to replace Melvin Gordon. Haven't had much luck building backfield depth this year, and looks like I'll be stuck with Isaiah Crowell this weekend. That's how the fantasy game goes...

Looking at the waiver report, it does not list that you tried to pick him up. It will show as "unsuccessful" if you try to add a player but he is added to a higher priority claim first. It probably didn't save when you put in the claim. It sucks, but it happens.

No, I see my claim on the waiver report. It clearly states that the claim was unsuccessful because the player was already added to another team.

I don't really want to belabor this, as it's all moot at this point, but just for my own knowledge moving forward, I would like to understand the rule that gave LTWW higher waiver priority than me

Yeah, that is odd, because when I looked at it last night it didn't show that unsuccessful claim. Their system must be glitching or something.

Edit: I just looked again and it still isn't showing up on my end on the waiver report. I wish I had an explanation for it. That is strange for sure.

Ok, I copied and pasted this from the LM settings page. Maybe this explains what happened. Look at the line I highlighted below:

Waiver Order System
The waiver order determines which team has the first chance to claim a player off waivers.The default setting is 'Resets each week...' and if selected the team in last place will be reset to first in the waiver order each week during the season.
If 'Move to last after claim...' is selected, the waiver order does not reset on a weekly basis.
Note: Regardless of which option is selected, after a team makes a waiver selection that team is shifted to the final waiver position. This setting can be changed at any time during the season.

So, I think the "reset to inverse order of standings" only applies if everyone used their waiver claim the previous week. Each time you use a claim, it sends you to the back of the line regardless. Nov. 30 was the last time Let the Wookie Win used a waiver claim, and Choc Frosted had put in a couple of claims since then. That would explain why he had a higher waiver priority this week since he hadn't put in a claim in a few weeks. it still doesn't explain why my waiver report screen and Dr_Jedi's looked different!

I get it that it is frustrating. It is kind of making me feel like an a-hole for claiming him. If the commish wants to override and transfer him offer I am okay with it.

You didn't do anything wrong. ESPN just makes the waiver claim process difficult to understand for no reason. They could do a much better job in making the process more clear.

As much as I'd like to have the player, I don't want that either. The chips fell where they did. Hopefully this won't affect any outcomes in the end.

I don't know what the answer to any of this is. It seems that ESPN must treat waiver claims differently somehow in the playoffs. Maybe your theory about my having made a claim the previous week in the playoffs is correct. Or maybe they think we're all equal when we get to the playoffs, and order is determined by total points - either in the regular season or in the playoffs (though I was on a bye, my team did score 170 points last week). I appreciate the commish's effort in looking into this, and I won't bring it up again.

Ok, the 2017 season is almost here!

Last year was a competitive season. This one should be even better. Our draft is set for Sunday, August 27th, at 8 pm Eastern.

I removed two owners who did not keep up with their teams at all last year. I had to do the same last year, too. I hate to do it but I want this to be a competitive league. It makes it more fun when EVERYONE participates and sticks it out no matter how bad his or her team is performing. Those spots will be filled so we can still have a 12 team league.
EDIT: One spot taken, one left. PM me if interested but ONLY if you are committed to participating for the full season, regardless of how well or how poorly your team performs. This includes participating in the draft and keeping up with waivers and setting active lineups each week.

There are no rule changes this year, but make sure you review the rules on the home page and the roster configuration of this league before the draft just as a refresher. Every league has its own rules, so I just want to make sure everyone is aware of how this league does waivers, tiebreakers, scoring, etc.

I am looking forward to the 2017 season!
