    Alright guys First topic i want to discuss with you. I selected the new FAAB feature for the waiver process. I am open to changing it to the traditional waiver process if needed. Here is how FAAB works.


    In a Free Agents Acquisition Budgets (FAAB) waivers system, each manager receives a dollar amount to place blind bids on waived players. The manager with the highest bid at the end of the waiver period claims that player and that bid amount is deducted from the team's acquisition budget. If multiple managers place an equal bid on a player, ties are broken on a continual rolling list basis: waiver claims are processed in waiver priority order and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list.

    Managers may bid anywhere from one dollar to their remaining acquisition budget on a waived player. Managers with no remaining budget must wait until a player clears waivers and becomes a free agent to add him to their team.




    Note: Your FAAB is different than your initial draft budget. If you have money left over after an Auction Draft, it will not be added to your FAAB.
    I am just trying to mixed things up from the traditional fantasy settings and find the auction draft and FAAB features really cool. With that said i am open to changes so let me know . That was the purpose of making the thread

    a 2nd Util slot might be nice...

    with this FAAB, how long is the waiver/bid time? I always liked the old waiver rules b/c it rewards active mgrs who are up on things like midseason call ups, injuries, time shares, etc.

    I have no problem adding a 2nd utility spot as long as the majority of the league owners are ok with it.


    The waiver bid time for the FAAB system is 2 days.

    I'm fine with 2 utility spots and I would prefer to have 3 OF spots vs a LF, CF, RF.

    The following changes have been made to the settings:


    1) 2nd Utility spot added

    2 Bench spots down to 6 insteed of 7 since we are using the 2nd utility spot.



    The outfield configuration stays the same just 3 OF.

    Seems like everybody is okay with drafting on a sunday night so we are going to go that way : We have 3 possible dates :


    A) March 14th

    B) March 21st

    C March 28th



    I would like to know when is the earliest you guys would be willing to draft ? I am asking because on March 21st LeoGetz will probably have his espn auction league draft and several of our league members including me are in that league too. Is basically impossible to do 2 auctions in a day because auctions take forever. On March 28th would be ideal since is the closest date to the start of the season but several of you probably already have a draft that date.



    Considering all these factors let's talk about March 14th. I know the date is probably earlier than most would like but IMHO it could be the day that everybody can make it. Just let me know what you think.

    ^^

    I would be fine with either the 14th or the 28th.

    Whatever date is best for everyone else is fine with me.
