In Topic: Waiver strategy in yahoo leagues?

12 November 2018 - 03:17 PM

thats a good explanation, thanks.. i like that strategy.
the issue is that i never get my top claim and always somehow end up with a late waiver order.. ill need to dig in to this 

In most yahoo leagues, the waiver priority doesn't reset once the Draft happens. In espn leagues & some custom leagues, the waiver priority order resets weekly based on standings. The worst team gets the #1 claim weekly with the top team having the last claim.

Scenario - you want Gurley, Kamara, Zeke in that order and wanna drop Alex Smith, Andy Dalton, and Case Keenum in that order. You'd want it aligned this way.

Add Gurley, drop Smith.
Add Kamara, drop Smith.
Add Kamara, drop Dalton.
Add Zeke, drop Smith.
Add Zeke, drop Dalton.
Add Zeke, Keenum.

You have a chance at all 3 & in the order you prefer. If you hit Gurley, you go to the back of the waiver priority order but still have claims for Kamara and Zeke.

If you miss all 3, you will have moved up in waiver priority order as none of your claims landed.

If your priority is 1, you have highest claim. If your priority is 8, seven teams have a higher claim than you. It's importantnot to waste claims on backups, defenses, and kickers if possible. Just add them as free agents once they clear waivers early Wednesday morning.

Good enough explanation?

Thought of starting him over Tate but when I get cute it always bites me in the ass.

Tate did torch Dallas earlier this year bit I'd love a guaranteed 8 catches, 70 yards from my WR5

Update. The Owner backtracked due to Owners speaking out about trade basically saying, "you're better than this."

Trade deadline is tonight at 7:30 & if both Owners agree to the trade than it will be allowed. If Owner leaves as planned in 2019 he must pay it foward to future Owner.

Normally I'd agree that a player who plans to leave should have the roster frozen to prevent bad deals, but if the roster hasnt been frozen, you need to scrutinize the deal based on its merits.
if this is a 2 keeper league, then a first round pick is the equivalent of a third round pick in a redraft.  I could easily see AB going in the 2nd or 3rd round.    Ditto for Kelce and Julio. 
the guy inheriting his team wont do badly because of the deal. he is at the very least, getting some keepable players.  this is especially true if his team was weak in terms of potential keepers. 
even if it wasnt weak in terms of potential keepers(ie. he has a strong team), this deal gives him a legit shot at a title and likely represents fair value for a team trying to win it all. 
In this case, I'd let the deal go through.  hes acting as a normal team might even if he is leaving.

You can't keep players drafted in first 5 rounds. The first 50 picks of the Draft are not eligible to be kept. AB, Julio, and Kelce were the team's first 3 picks in our August draft.
