Free Agent Acquisition Budget

An option for both ESPN Custom and League Manager Leagues is Free Agent Acquisition Budget, or "FAAB". This waiver system has two distinct options available to choose from:

  • Free Agent Auction Bidding - Teams will have a specific budget with which they can bid to make player acquisitions. All bids are processed after the league's specified waiver period. If a team would like to add a player, that team will secretly bid an amount they are willing to pay. On the waiver process day, the team with the highest bid will be awarded the player, and the bid will be subtracted from that team's budget. Players who are not claimed during bid processing become free agents available for first come, first serve style pickups.

  • Free Agent Auction (Continuous) - Teams will have a specific budget with which they can bid to make player acquisitions. All acquisitions will be done in batches one or more times each week (as specified in the settings). If a team would like to add a player, that team will bid an amount they are willing to pay. On the next waiver process day, the team with the highest bid will be awarded the player, and the bid will be subtracted from that team's budget.
