Tyreek Hill.

:mad:

I was shocked he fell to 9. He certainly saved me from some mediocre or terrible performances this week. Although you could cut his score in half and I think i'd still be okay

Is anyone opposed to fixing this to inverse of draft order or are people going to claim part of their draft strategy was to lose week 1 for waiver preference?

It's more about what the setting was last year versus what was entered this year. 

A preference should have been brought up for vote to change during the off season.

usually reverse order of draft is the starting point and once you make a waiver claim you go to the back of the line. 

Resetting every week to inverse of standings (w/l, points) just rewards the worst performing teams. Again, if people prefer that, it would have been nice to bring up amongst all the proposed changes rather than just being silently set up that way. 

 

End of the day this is not that important to me but it also seems like a setting that no one can claim impacted their draft, thus an easy fix.

 2021 rules were NOT reverse draft order every week. It starts out that way and once you make a claim you go to the back of the line

Don't be obtuse. There needs to be a starting point. That would be reverse of draft order.

Then the normal WW. If I use it, I go to 12. If I don't use it, I keep the #1 spot. 

ETA: Exactly what WW just said,.

I work a lot and do not have the time to compare this year to last. if we go with last year's setting, that is fine.

 i don't disagree. i don't have the time to review last year's setting vs this years

usually reverse order of draft is the starting point and once you make a waiver claim you go to the back of the line. 

I have seen this as well.  that would be fine

Resetting every week to inverse of standings (w/l, points) just rewards the worst performing teams. Again, if people prefer that, it would have been nice to bring up amongst all the proposed changes rather than just being silently set up that way. 

this is also common, and often is defaulted. i have not seen it having to be reset weekly.

Reverse of draft order and then normal WW rules. 

The #1 WW is far more important than a win week 1.  What is to stop someone from tanking week 1 to get it? Dumb.

didn't we run ww prior to week 1? that is where 12th should have had 1st ww.

once the games are played... either rolling ww, or by standings is how it should be

Yes. I did not use it. Why would I lose the #1 spot? That is how WW works.

We all (or most of us) work a lot. No offense but you had the time to propose 57 rule changes :dunno:.  I understand they were just proposals and I genuinely appreciate proposals to vote on if it improves the league

 

I agree with you that another common way to handle waivers is inverse of standings after week 1, but in this case, Lager set the espn league to reset each week. Meaning the last place team will get #1 priority every week.

there is a big difference between offering proposals and combing through two sets of settings.  I am 100% in favor of improving our league experience

I have no issue with that.  I also have no issue with setting it to whatever it was last year.

 

WW procedures was not something i paid much attention to last year.

 

So what is it going to be?

I knew I had #1 spot so naturally saved it to keep it.

Id have used it if I knew I was going to lose it.

retarded,.

I have just fixed everything. I changed the setting from "reset each week" to rolling.  I manually entered the waiver order based on the draft order. I also fixed a few things that were under the same umbrella.... ESPN non droppable list was set to yes... (this should always be no in the event of an injury), .... and trade veto was set to 5 votes.  Trades should never be struck down by vote or for any reason. In the event of clear collusion, then the LM can reverse the trade.    **This is all consistent with 2022**

 

None of these rules impacted anyone's draft.

 

If anyone has an issue with it, you can add removing me from the league to the list of things you'll vote on for next year :)

It should be week WW that runs on wednesday (I think it's usually fairly early in the morning... like 4-5am EST...  and then FCFS after that)  Although some of these options may be gone now that the season has started.  

Either way, what we have now should be closest to 2022 rules.
