Just to add some clarity here...
I dropped Edelman for a second defense week 1. No accident and totally my fault. I had waiver position #3 and figured I could probably get him back when waivers processed the following week if I really needed to. The system wouldn't even let me put in a claim for him though. I tried contacting Brent and posted on the site, but Brent was out of town. Wasn't sure if this was a glitch or what, so I tried putting in a claim for another player dropped about the same (A. Brown) just to test the system. That claim request worked - I thought I deleted it, but it still went through for some reason. We have come to figure out that if you drop a guy, you cannot put a claim on him the following week - don't know why and don't agree with it, but at least now we know.
Now, Brent did pick up Edelman, but he had the #1 waiver spot anyway. I took the risk in dropping him, so that's my loss and on me regardless of the waiver setup. I have no issues with that pick up beyond kicking myself for dumping him in the first place. What is bothersome though is that I lost my wavier pick. I believe oth guys in front of me have picked up players, so I should be at #1 now (if Winterfell Wolves haven't grabbed anyone, then I should be at #2). I missed out on pickups this week because of my low waiver priority, so unfortunately this single waiver issue has had multiple negative consequences for me.
Ultimately, the mistake was mine, but it was made without fully understanding the wavier rule for adding back players you drop. I don't think any of us knew about this from what I've heard thus far. I'm not asking that anyone change out any of the players they've picked up, but I do think it's fair to at least restore my waiver priority to #1 to set things right. Thanks for hearing me out and sounds like you can vote one way or the other on the site. Good luck to everyone this week!
