Do the head to head matchups play a factor in ranking?

Pretty much why I've only had 1 decent RB all year long. I've taken flyers on guys all year long which resets my waiver wire order down to the high teens rather than it going by record. Oh well....live and learn, no big deal.


I came in 2nd in a 10-team league that used points to determine winner last year solely because I drafted a good team and won. I was last place or second to last in waiver order every damn week. Guys who didn't prepare and screwed up their draft were rewarded due to their ignorance. If I had top waiver priority just once during the season I probably would have won an extra 500.

So no, I am no fan of letting the team with the worst record get the first selection every single week. Maybe the problem was the league set-up, no playoff, just points, but the experience was extremely frustrating. I think it is a competitive disadvantage if one guy can get first priority 6 or 7 times a season.

I get that, I do...but speaking for this league specifically in a league this large w/ a bench so deep you have to burn your waiver in my situation every week just to field a team w/ 1/2 a chance.

Now, given my bad luck at RB plus the initial 3 or 4 weeks or whatever it was before Gronk (my first pick) even scored a point may have compounded having a team that couldn't possibly win a game early on but it certainly didn't help being at the back of the waiver order literally every week.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's been unfair but definitely frustrating the way I've had to try and piecemeal a roster together every week.

How does the waiver wire work here, exactly? I was assuming that the team with the last pick in the 1st got top priority week 1 and it rotated from there. Seems that assumption is wrong. I haven't been checking my queue status and did not know about any burning of position as I figured with so many teams I'm never going to land the top pickup.

Same logic as the NFL draft. Clearly teams that suck more get first pick to help level things out. There's a lot that goes into having a "great draft", just like the real draft it's half luck or bad luck. If there's a guy getting the first priority 6 times, then he clearly has a very bad team. Hard to say he is getting an advantage.

I'm not just referring to the last place team when I say advantage. In my above example I was denied a waiver 7 or 8 times while half the teams were never denied once. It became impossible for me to stay in first as the season wore on as injuries set in. I just don't think it's fair if every advantage just goes to the bottom.

The draft order is not based on need its random so I think every team should get a week where they have 1st priority.

LOL. Never checked the thread to see the reactions. For the record, he offered the trade to me. I know Hopkins has been a relative disappointment but Doc must really have some faith in Sammy to think he'll come back healthy enough these last few games to make a difference.

Yeah...you never get to play yourself or it'd be lower!

I can't complain at all personally. Sitting at 7-3 with only about a +25 point margin is pretty nuts. I think I just got totally blown out in my 3 losses due to the injuries to Watkins, Decker and Langford a won a bunch of fairly close ones since. I'm sure it won't last but once we get to playoffs anything can happen.

That's exactly it. I may be out thinking myself on this, but I'm seeing Sammy have a big final quarter during the playoffs.

Lol this is so not my year. Both Ingram and Matthews get knocked out of their respective games. They're the 4th and 5th RBs to get injured for me along with the 6th getting cut.

Who wants to help Bootz win this thing? Time for you people to unload your good players for draft picks. I need help at RB and TE maybe.

I love how competitive this league has been. No one with less than 4 losses is pretty incredible. Five players tied at 7-4 with another four at 6-5. Three more in the hunt at 5-6 with a feasible chance at playoffs. It's going to be a wild last couple weeks.

The waiver priority works like this...after the draft the waiver priority was the reverse order of the draft. From there, if you submitted a waiver request and it was processed that puts you at the bottom of the waiver priority order. So if you had the 16th pick in the draft, then you were the first waiver priority for the 1st waiver period. If you were the ONLY person to process a waiver claim then you dropped to #16 in the waiver order and everyone else moves up a spot by virtue of them not exercising their waiver order for that week. However, since multiple teams process waiver picks every week the order shuffles insanely every week because every time you are granted the claim you are back at the bottom of the list (even within that week--i.e. if teams submit multiple claims per week the second and any subsequent claims are processed on the resulting waiver claim earlier in that waiver claim cycle for that week if that makes sense)
