What is Waiver Priority in Fantasy Baseball?

Waiver Wire is the first 2 days after a player has been dropped or added by a team or added to fantasy baseball. So, if someone drops Jeff Francouer on Monday, you can try to claim him. If he doesn't get claimed, by Wednesday he is a free agent. Claiming is when you add and/or drop (a) player(s). Waiver Priority is the order of claiming. If six teams claim Jeff Francouer, the team with the highest Waiver Priority gets him. Waiver Priority isn't first come first serve, but free agency is.

How do waivers work in baseball?

Any player under contract may be placed on waivers at any time. If a player is waived, any team may claim him. If more than one team claims the player from waivers, the team with the weakest record in the player's league gets preference. If no team in the player's league claims him, the claiming team with the weakest record in the other league gets preference. In the first month of the season, preference is determined using the previous year's standings. If a team claims a player off waivers and has the viable claim as described above, his current team (the "waiving team") may choose one of the following options: * arrange a trade with the claiming team for that player within two business days of the claim; or * rescind the request and keep the player on its major league roster, effectively canceling the waiver; or * do nothing and allow the claiming team to (1) assume the player's existing contract, (2) pay the waiving team a waiver fee, and (3) place the player on its active major league roster. If a player is claimed and the waiving team exercises its rescission option, the waiving team may not use the option again for that player in that season. If no team claims a player from waivers in three business days, the player has cleared waivers and may be assigned to a minor league team, traded, or released outright. The waiver "wire" is a secret within the personnel of the Major League Baseball clubs; no announcement of a waiver is made until a transaction actually occurs. Many players are often quietly waived during the August "waiver-required" trading period to gauge trade interest in a particular player. Usually, when the player is claimed, the waiving team will rescind the waiver to avoid losing the player unless a trade can be worked out with the claiming team

What if an NFL waiver wire player does not report to the team that picked him up off of waivers?

The player is bound to the same contract to the team that claims him off waivers just the same as his previous team. If he fails to report, he is considered a hold-out and could be subject to fines or the termination of his contract.
