I understand the basics of Fantasy Football and I've played in casual leagues for several years. I was thinking of joining a bigger money league this year. Some friends have a well established league set up and a spot finally opened. You start with a new team every year.
I was ready to take the plunge until I saw that they don't do waivers on game day. Meaning, you can pick free agents up during the games on Sunday, and there is no waiver period involved. It basically rewards the guys sitting on their couch, watching every game while hovering over their laptop. I called my buddies out and said that I feel like most leagues don't work like that. I'm a big NFL fan, but I'm not going to spend every waking hour watching every game and worrying that someone else is snagging players when there's an injury and I don't have a chance to make moves.
They use waivers for dropped players, but they do not lock players in on gameday.
Am I way off here? Thoughts?
