Should probably change the thread title to "Big Name Guys on IR" or something along those lines.

too bad for those guys
not surprising with Sanders, he just needs to retire, his body cant handle the NFL
Jenkins may be getting that way
sucks for Grant, but hes not all that good anyways so its not a devastating loss like Jenkins

I'm glad they released this info before wednesday. If you're not #1 on your waiver priority you can forget about it.

This news gives me a good idea. The NFL should add more games to the schedule.

If Sanders is done, that's a pretty short career. Six years. Torn biceps tendon sounds pretty nasty.

Waiver priority shouldn't matter here....if he wasn't on a roster going into today, that means he'd be a FA. To be subject to waivers, that would mean that someone had him on their roster this weekend and then chose to drop him after hearing news that he'd become the starter. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that such a scenario is not likely.

This is why I like the bid system more. Waiver priority is kinda bull****. Blind bids are more strategic and fair.

I believe waiver claims are typically processed on Wednesday, no?

I think in most yahoo leagues you cant add anyone, even guys on IR until Wednesday
that is how it is in my yahoo league, I cant add anyone including guys like Torry Holt until tomorrow

I'm talking about FA vs waiver pickups.

In every league I've ever been in, if a guy is a FA on Sunday and he has a big day on Sunday...whoever is the fastest on the trigger can sign him on Sunday, Monday, whatever. Or, like in this case, if a backup RB is a FA on Sunday and his starter goes down with a season ending injury on Sunday, the fastest on the trigger can sign him on Sunday, Monday, whatever.

Waiver claims (which typically do get processed on Wednesday) have no bearing on free agency. Those are only for guys who are putting in a claim for a guy that was on someone else's roster over the weekend and then were subsequently dropped from said person's roster.

Okay, so if you had a $100 free agent budget for the year, how much would you all spend on Brandon Jackson right out of the gate?

*I'm in an auction league and most of our teams still have 5-7 spots to fill on their roster.

Interesting. See above for my post about the rules I typically have played under.

I've never played in a league where every FA pickup had to go through the waiver process. It's always been first come-first served.

Ugh, I hate those rules. There is always that one guy in the league who sits there on his computer all day Sunday cherry-picking the top performers. The waiver priority isn't perfect, but it gives people who watch the games on delay or who actually attend games a chance at the top unknown performers.

I got him this morning in my big money league... Just got a major bump at RB with him.

Would've done everything to grab him in the OM league but Mediator is too smart not to have that cuff in my conference.

Trust me, Jackson in the orangemane league = dog shiat.

In my keeper league, he was already on a roster.

How do you figure that? He's a third down back to begin with which means he'll get plenty of catches... who is it exactly that you think is a stud in the OM league?

I've got #1 waiver priority in both my leagues due to my piss-poor week 1.

Bob Sanders is the Greg Oden of the NFL.

To bad, because he is a great player when he's healthy.

Then he's nothing like Greg Oden.

I mean I see your point, but even on the floor did Oden ever do anything of note?

Some leagues allow the commish the option to dump the entire FA group onto waivers immediately after the draft. I run all my leagues on Fleaflicker, and generally set them up that way.

This is how my yahoo league is. After the draft completes, everyone hits the 3 day waiver period. Thereafter, a player is on waiver for 3 days immediately after being cut by someone but otherwise he is just FA available to the first clicker.

I grabbed him in my league and dumped Cribbs. I now have no backup WRs but my RBs kick butt! Maybe I'll find the guy who just lost Grant and try a trade. That probably wouldn't be nice though.
