But long story short my biggest conflict is you and my top league’s matchup. He has Dalton and Gurley there, and I have OBJ and Cousins in that league.

Thankfully you’re not playing Cousins or I would cave under the conflict of who to cheer for.

I didn't catch that Hyde was traded to Jax and didn't find out until the 4th quarter of the morning game, so my hands were tied on changes I could make. I swear, espn sends me stupid alerts about things I never seem to care about, but heaven help me if there's something I actually need to know for my team.

Eh, if you put Murray in place of Gordon and Hilton at Flex in place of Peterson you're still down 11.8 heading into tonight and you have Ryan to my Jones & Hooper. Or if you played Luck, you're up 18.3 with no players left and I have Julio Jones and Austin "don't call me Matt" Hooper. You'd lose either way.

Also, why is the waiver period so messed up? I didn’t get a claim into a starting position because it processes on Sunday? It should process on Tuesday or Wednesday.

I can’t drop a player who is benched and I have an error message of “too many TEs (3)” so I legitimately cannot fill a roster spot start right now. This is stupid.

That’s not the point. I have Ertz on bye (cannot drop list). I have Gronk as a game time decision (cannot drop list). I made a claim for Jordan Reed on Wednesday and returned on Thursday/Friday/Saturday only every time to realize that the claim hasn’t processed.

I was busy this morning and 1 PM passed. There’s no way to say “if claim successful start this player.” So I missed the narrow window to acknowledge and start Jordan Reed (and my other claim, Miami D/ST).

Except I cant drop Jordan Reed now, even though he’s on the bench, because he’s “locked.” And I can’t drop Ertz, not that I would want to. And I can’t drop Gronk. So I can’t pick up another TE.

There is legitimately no way, despite having an open TE spot, that I can fill it with another TE. That’s stupid, and the main issue boils down to waiver claims being processed just before games instead of just after game week.

Tuesday waiver claims are definitely processed on Sunday. I'm not sure when Wednesday or later claims are processed, but that does sound familiar to me, that they don't process until Sunday morning. If someone is available on waivers on Wednesday, it's because someone dropped them on Tuesday.

The TE 3 limit is just the espn default, I never bothered to change it.

Obviously once the game started Reed was locked, not a lot you can do there.

Reading ESPN's rules on waivers isn't making this any clearer to me.

Looking at the activity report your recollection of the timeline doesn't seem right. Gaf didn't even drop Reed until Thursday. If it did process on Saturday morning like this says it did, that's when it was supposed to, according to the espn Waiver faq. A full 24 hour cycle after the player is first made available.

Obviously the 3 TE thing is an obscure thing that it takes this occurrence to happen to realize that it’s kind of silly. Anyone trying to hoard TEs will assuredly suffer everywhere else.

This is yet another reason why I don’t like ESPN. On yahoo, waivers makes much more sense. The purpose of the waiver period is to prevent people from being first to the lunch on good players or players slated to fill in for injured stars, etc.

I shouldn’t have to wait until Sunday to be able to access my claim. It’s arbitrary when claims get processed - they should all be processed before Thursday, at which point everyone should become a free agent up until that player’s game time (so basically the only place you have a small window is Thursday, but Thursdays are night games anyways so it’s not a small window).

And as far as Reed being locked, it’s absolutely still silly that I can’t drop him. You should be able to drop anybody at any time. Once a player has played, it’s obvious to say you can’t un-play them by dropping them, but you should totally still be able to drop them. And you can in Yahaoo - as I already have this week.

I definitely disagree about dropping during the game, that gives you an unfair advantage, and I've never personally noticed being allowed to do that in Yahoo, so that's surprising.

Basically, it doesn't look like espn did anything wrong here. You picked up a player that was available on waivers on Thursday because that's the day they were dropped. Our league has a mandatory one-day (full 24 hour period, so in this case Friday - Saturday) waiver period. According to the activity report, your waiver claim processed Saturday morning, as it was meant to. I'm not sure beyond that what may have happened that you either missed it, or something glitched on your end.

I'm confused about your complaint about the dolphins, since it appears you picked them up in free agency three weeks ago.

You’re right that I’m mixing my timeline up (mostly because I’m working 4 leagues right now). But I wasn’t ever suggesting the waiver system wasn’t working as it was supposed to. I’m criticizing ESPN’s waiver system (and player system) for being janky in the first place.

If this were yahoo, Benjamin Watson would be my TE right now because I forgot about my claim after it not being processed when I last checked. Alllsssss I’m saying here.

there is no way any fantasy football league lets you drop a player in the middle of their game and have it be effective immediately.
