It has been brought to my attention that a waiver period of 2 days does not allow enough time to attempt another waiver claim if a team does not succeed at the first claim. The new waiver period going forward will be one day, which is NFL default. What this means for the league is that if you have any interest in obtaining players from the waiver wire, you need to get to them at some point on TUESDAY for a chance at getting them before someone else who has claimed them. It simply means each team needs to pay a bit more attention to the waiver wire, and each team that does not successfully claim someone Tuesday has time to try again Wednesday before Thursday Night’s game. [It should be noted that, again in the interest of fairness, this will not affect this week’s waiver claims, but will start Tuesday morning after Week 7.]
Another thing that I should address is the Add/Drop and Trade Limits. In the interest of fairness to the teams who have already played games without their Defense or Kickers, those restrictions will remain in place until the end of the season, at which point we will vote as a league whether to raise them or lift them entirely.
We’ll also vote, whenever League votes happen, be it postseason at the Super Bowl, or at next year’s draft, on whether this League will remain a Dynasty League, meaning each team gets to choose a set number of players to keep for next year’s draft, or whether we will re-draft at the beginning of each and every season. A dynasty league would be drafted by previous season standings, a re-draft would be another random snake draft.
