Define Waiver Request parameters using this screen.
NOTE: These option require that at least one "Waiver Request" waiver type be defined using the Waivers Setup
Max. Rounds for the Weekly Waiver Wire - Each waiver request period may have up to eight rounds (this does not apply to the other types of waiver defined above). Each franchise may select waiver requests for as many rounds as defined by the league. When the waiver requests are processed, each franchise will only receive one player per waiver round before any franchise will receive two players. When set to the maximum of eight rounds, a franchise could at most add/drop up to eight players in one waiver round.
Waiver Request Sort Order -
|•||Each round is the same order as the first round. This default setting will keep waivers consistent from round to round.|
|•||Each round is the reverse order of the previous round. Changing to this setting will provide a more balanced (snake-type) waiver award period.|
|•||Use a season-long, rolling order. This option offer a single waiver order whereby any time an owner is awarded a player, they automatically drop to the bottom of the waiver priority list.|
NOTE: When using the "season-long rolling order" option, all other waiver criteria remain unused.
Waiver-Request Auto-Processing - For waiver windows defined to use the 'Waiver Request of Sort Criteria Listed Below' waiver type, this option will allow the system to automatically process the waivers based on the Waiver Sort Criteria (as defined below) as soon as the waiver request window has ended. This option has no effect on any of the other waiver types. Once waivers are automatically processed by the system, the 'For Commissioners > Previously Processed Waivers' report will contain all of the original waiver requests that each owner made, along with the adds/drops the system made based on those requests.
The system doesn't "read" owner comments entered when they submit their waiver picks, therefore, complex if/then logic that an owner could theoretically enter in that comment field will be ignored by the system. Additionally, if your league allows owners to trade waiver picks, or, has a different waiver order in rounds after the first, this automatic waiver processing will not work for you - you'll need to continue to use the manual "Process Waivers" option.
Note that waivers are never automatically processed on Sundays between 1pm ET and midnight Monday morning, as that's when games are on-going. If your league would like waivers to be processed on Sundays, the commissioner must manually process waivers.
"Waiver Request (Locked Players Only)" Waivers Are Processed: The default option is how MyFantasyLeague.com has traditionally processed waivers: "For all players at the same time, at the end of each "Waiver Request (Locked Players Only)" calendar event." However, if you're trying to mimic your waiver rules that you had in prior seasons with someone like Yahoo!, CBS Sportsline, or ESPN, you can choose the "On a player-by-player basis, at 3am ET, 1 days after the player is dropped." option.
Waiver Sort (Nine) Criteria - Define the order of the sort criteria to be used in calculating the weekly standings.
Overall Winning Percentage. This is the most common primary sort criteria that uses wins & losses.
Head-to-Head Record. This cannot be used as a primary sort criteria as it only compares the H2H matchups of two teams individually.
Total Points Scored. For Total Points (non Head-to-Head) leagues, this selection sorts by year-to-date fantasy points.
Reverse Order of Opponents Total Points Scored. This option awards a higher ranking to teams who's opponents have scored fewer points. This too should never be used as a primary sort.
Conference Winning Percentage. Same as Overall Winning %, but restricts sort to teams in each conference.
Divisional Winning Percentage. Same as Overall Winning %, but restricts sort to teams in each
