Waivers Run Again on Sunday

What a Week 1 it was, players! Now it's time to improve your rosters with potential difference-makers like Jeff Wilson. This is your friendly reminder that all FFPC Main Event, Footballguys Players Championship, Classic, Victory Point, Dynasty and other managed leagues had waivers last night, but a second weekly waiver period processes on Sunday morning at 10 am ET.

  • IMPORTANT: You can only get one player per bid group. Once you get a player in that group, all other bids are voided. If you want to get multiple players, you will need multiple bid groups and multiple players to drop.
  • If you have multiple teams, please handle bidding with a single team in a single browser for now.
  • Every team has $1,000 bidding dollars to spend. This needs to last for the entire season.
  • There are no $0 bids, so please bid $1 or more.

To place bids:

  • From the league home page, click on TEAM. You will see the Bid Groups section on your Set Lineup page.
  • You can click on the 'Create Bid Group' button on the Set Lineup page to create a new group. From there you simply need to 1) add the player(s) to the group, 2) specify the bid amount for each player, 3) select the players to drop and 4) click Save.
  • Bid groups can be copied and then edited as a new group.
  • Bid amounts can be edited quickly and easily.
  • Players are default sorted by previous season stats and can be sorted by position.
  • Don't forget to include a player to drop in every bidding group.

Find a Free Agent Feature on MyTeams Page:

If you are looking for a certain free agent, you can use the player search feature on the MyTeams page and it will tell you if he is rostered or not and who owns him. This is helpful for owners that have multiple teams and are looking for a priority free agent.
