An option for both ESPN Fantasy Hockey Custom and League Manager Leagues is Free Agent Acquisition Budget, or "FAAB".
- 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.
FAAB waiver order is determined in the same fashion as non-FAAB. If you make a waiver claim and win it, you get moved to the bottom of the waiver order list.
