I brought this up last year and think it's worth repeating. I think we should change the waiver system so it rewards teams at the bottom of the rankings vs. the quickest to react to injuries / hot performances on game day.
Keep FA players locked until Wed. AM.
Let teams place their waivers starting Tues. AM for FA players they want - the team in 12th place gets their first choice filled and it cycles through based upon the standings (11th place goes second, 10th gets third, and so on).
It keeps the competition high and doesn't reward the folks with the fastest internet connection on game day.
We practice this in another league and it works well. It's actually the preferred method of acquiring FA players in most fantasy leagues.
