Why do we still not have waivers in this league?

There are waivers when a player is dropped, I don't see any reason to have waivers otherwise.

Really? You don't have a problem seeing the free agent du jour getting picked up 5 minutes after becoming the hot add due to injury or breakout performance?

How is that really a problem? I've played in numerous leagues this way and it's never been a problem. Those people doing this(which was probably me) means I'm in a worse off position for my team if I have to look for the "flavor" of the week.

Thats correct. We have a 8 bench spots for a reason. Someone should be rewarded for paying attention to the injury news...thats probably not going to be me.

I guess its not because its not a money league and its not that serious. It's sort of a kindergarten rule, though.

No the kindergarten rule is having waivers go into effect every sunday so everyone gets a "fair chance" at the players that have been sitting there for the taking all season long.

That is pretty much my reasoning that I don't get. Everyone has a shot at the players, if it's that SERIOUS that it's free agent frenzy out there, be more responsive to when a player gets hurt?

I completely agree with Krafster here. Waivers shouldn't turn on who's watching the game most closely or who is sitting at their comp in the afternoon. It is the kingergarten rule -- finder's keepers losers' weepers. Instead, you should have established rules in place for the structured addition of players.

no, not everyone has a shot. the people that are sitting around starting at their tv and their phone/comp have a shot. if you are the steelers game and see mendenhall get hurt, you arent going to whip your phone out and claim redman. and even if you did, you likely wouldnt be the first person to do it since the network is so slow at the games. its silly to not have waivers

Ok, then with waivers, not everyone gets a shot...only the worst person that checks the fantasy league by Wednesday gets a shot.

I can't really say I've sat at a TV all day and went through this scenario you described, and I don't think I've had a problem picking players up.

I don't understand why this is such an issue, especially in our league with the huge bench. The only time this should come up is if there's an injury during a game and someone grabs the backup....if your guy's backup is worth starting in case of an injury, you should already own him.

Exactly. In a league this deep, if someone is good enough to start in fantasy, they should be on a roster. Otherwise you're worried about a dime a dozen player who is getting a shot to start.

I'm fine either way with waiver rules. When I picked up Jennings he was on waivers. I was surprised I got him to be honest.

I'm looking to deal Peyton Manning (4th) or RG3 (5th). I want to win this year, so I am willing to deal picks also. I need to shoot for the city of champions trifecta since I won in hockey and baseball this year.

Matthews or AP are available. I'd be looking for a pretty high pick in next year's draft.

I'll trade you RG3 for AP.

Edit: Or Peyton.

I'm 4th in Points for (and a close 4th), and struggling mightily in the win-loss column. Frustrating. I might lose again this week. I feel like I'm good enough to make the playoffs, but who knows at this point?
