Waiver Wire Prog Reboot - No Draft Prog (need 3) Topic

This is the fastest and easiest PROG league to play because there is NO DRAFTING. Instead we use the Waiver Wire to upgrade players on our teams.

Every team is based on two initial years chosen by the original owner. Every game-season is an increment on the previous one. Every owner is free to use the WW as much as he/she (she?) wants to acquire players from the same years they are playing. The league will run for another FIVE SEASONS.

For example: if your years are 1991-92 and 1930-31, you can pick up any player from the WW that is listed as 1991-92 or 1930-31 and you can drop players from your roster to make room for the new players. In the next season you will be permitted to collect 1992-93 and 1931-32 players from the waiver wire. It will increment again for each future season.

Only the players still on the roster at the end of the previous season and the players listed as Injured Reserve get to be carried forward. If a player on your roster has no valid WIS entry for the next season, you get to put him on the Injured Reserve list and use him in future seasons. If he does have an entry in the WIS DB, you must progress him and add him to your roster or drop him from the team permanently.

Payroll for this season = 75M (+5M every future season)
max of 2 players out (so you can afford to have brittle players)
average MLs (who may be better than the filler players)
no playoff intensity

Right now the league is waiting on three teams to begin the season.

Hey jsa & gooner... One team left!!!   Like I said above a very unique progressive and it  uses the WW.  No going thru a draft or hoping you get to the WW before the other 23 owners!  The seasons are unique to YOU...so only you can take players from those seasons.  The only thing is....WILL THE WW GODS BE GOOD TO YOU and do you have the $$ to get the stars when they appear...??

Will be looking for a few owners again.

We are in season 6 now.  Salary cap of 80 mil.  Base team will be ready for you.  All you need to do is upgrade your team on the waiver wire, using your exclusive years.

Here is one available team.  Needs 5 fillers.  Once season starts you can upgrade using players from the waiver wire with your available seasons 88-89 and 48-4
