Already using Waiver Wire, but have a question? Here are answers to some of the most common questions we have received.

League Settings

  • User Name: This is the user account you use to login to your fantasy league.
  • Password:¬†This is the password for the account you use to login to your fantasy league.
  • League Url: This is the link to your league’s home page. For Yahoo, it should look something like this (https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/1111/) and for ESPN something like this (http://games.espn.com/ffl/clubhouse?leagueId=1111111).

Waiver Settings

  • Player to Drop: The name of the player on your roster who will be dropped.
  • Player to Add: The name of the player who you want to add to your roster.
  • Refresh Period: Defines how often the software will poll the league to see if waivers are open. We recommend somewhere between 15 minutes and 1 hour. The minimum is 5 minutes.

Waiver Robber is an automated program that takes the same steps you would when adding a player off the website. For some reason, both Yahoo and ESPN have the same button for when you are adding a player off waivers to an empty roster spot as when the player is already off waivers. There is no way for the software to distinguish that waivers haven’t opened yet for the player. In this instance, we recommend adding a random player, and then assigning them as your drop candidate.

Welcome to Yahoo fantasy waivers where everything looks strange. Yahoo seems to do a peculiar thing when they run their waivers. The time stamps reflected are sometimes long after waivers have reopened. Look at the screenshot below of one of our waiver gets — dropping Ed Dickson for Ryan Fitzpatrick. You’ll notice that was a free agent add at 3:53 am by Waiver Robber while the following three transactions were waiver claims. Yet they are time stamped as 4:39 am — almost an hour after waivers had opened. They actually occurred shortly before our transaction, but you’d never know it from looking at this. This is just one of those quirks with Yahoo. If you were hoping to fly under the radar with this software, Yahoo is going to make that tough.
