Waivers process daily around 3 am EST
Any player dropped by an owner will be placed on waivers for at least 24 hours
Once that time has passed, they either clear waivers, meaning no one has claimed them, or they enter the free-agent pool
The unclaimed players can now be picked up on a first-come, first-serve basis, without affecting your team's waiver position
Add a Player on the ESPN Fantasy App
Go under the Players tab on the My Team page
- Search for a specific player or search by position, and tap on that player's name to pull up their player card
- On the player card, click the green "Add" button. You will most likely have to drop one of your players to open up a roster spot
Click on the "My Team" tab in the clubhouse
- Click on "Add Players" right below the My Team tab
- You can select a specific position or all positions to choose from
Select a player to claim off waivers. You will most likely have to drop one of your players to open up a roster spot
In the event that multiple claims are all submitted for a player, the claim will be awarded to the team with the most favorable waiver position, or in other words closest to "1". Once a team is awarded a claim they get moved to the last possible position on the waiver order and everyone else moves up a slot, so if you didn't win your claim at least you're a one rung further up the ladder for next time.
Note: Waivers won't reset in your league during the playoffs if they are based off of inverse order of standings. The playoff teams are already set so the standings won't change.
