I'd like to propose a daily waiver system.  I feel outside of the first day of picking players off the waiver wire, waiver order has very little importance. I'd like to see the waiver order mean more through out the year. This system would be more in line with the way fantasy football does weekly waivers just our league would do them daily.

It can also be really important in the playoffs. Agreed that it means almost nothing in between, though a low # team can snap up guys before the guys sitting on their position have a chance.

Also want to let folks know that there are a few minor things on the Yahoo! side that we need to address (I was setting up the league while my wife was on the phone before we watched a movie for her b'day... so I couldn't work through all of them).

The chief thing is that b/c of (I think) changes to the NBA schedule Yahoo has a 20 week season this year -- with the only choices for when to start the playoffs (for a league our size) as week 21.

This would mean an unbalanced schedule -- i.e. instead of teams playing each other 1x, each team plays each other team 1x and a single team 2x.

In the past we've voted to avoid this unbalanced schedule.

To do that this year though would mean starting the league's season in Week 2 and going to Week 20 (a 19-week season) and start the playoffs in Week 20.


We tried starting at week 2 before and it was terrible. Everyone is pumped to start the season, but we have to wait out the first week. I would rather start the playoffs a week earlier.

Mk

Well I'd like to win the league every year...  :o

As i mentioned in my post (see bold) the Yahoo setup this year -- for whatever reason only allows for starting the playoffs in Week 21.

That means either (a) having an unbalanced 20-week sched or (b) having a balanced 19 week sched, starting in week 2.

Either way the playoffs start in week 21 -- bc that's the only option Yahoo gives a league or size (i.e. W 8 playoff teams).

The thing I like about this is that it lessens the "first-to-the-computer" dynamic for picking up FAs.

Though that's less of an issue than in a baseball league for example. I don't know that I can think of a guy I missed out on last year for that reason.

On the other hand, I fear it might have a negative impact on teams adding FAs and/or taking a flier on a guy (already a bit of an issue IMO)

for example, early last season I added JaVale McGee to see how he'd play out -- I'm unlikely to take that kind of chance if I have a high waiver priority.

Does this end up having a negative impact on player movement-- especially among the bottom teams?

--

FWIW, outside of the initial Waiver Wire rush -- there were only 27 players added off waivers last year out of ~ 250 players added throughout the season.

Seriously though, I vote for the unbalanced 20 games  schedule. The more games the better.

Those are good counter points about it might hinder some other player movement.  But the first to the computer aspect is what I was trying to minimize. Even though I was first to get there when linsanity was going on in the middle of his game.

Is there a way to have the players be on waivers from the start of the first game to 3am? Then after that they are free agents until 7pm when the first games start.  Id assume this wouldnt be possible on yahoo, but that way you could still add free agents during the day without burning your good waiver number.

Here's what I'm considering -- if Yahoo allows it:

Setting things up so that teams w/ the best records last year play each other that 2nd time. It's imperfect but better than the 4th team from last year randomly getting the worst team from last year IMO.

1 vs 2

3 vs 4

etc.


I might even make it so that that matchup happens in the middle of the season or something for 2 consecutive weeks?

Thoughts?

I would probably support the 20 week season. I'd be fine either way. On second thought...people are trying to make the playoffs (and tank) that last week. Maybe balanced 19 is better

Same. I'll never be on board with starting Week 2. The imbalance doesn't bother me. If memory serves, it's only even been in the past two seasons that Yahoo has condensed the two weeks around the All Star break into a - perfect for us - 20 week schedule. Strength of schedule is a realty across sports.
