Claim a Player on the ESPN Fantasy App
Tap the "Players" tab.
The default view will display the top three Batters and top three Pitchers that are currently available as Free Agents in your league.
You can search for a particular player by name in the "Search" field.
You can also view the entire list of available Batters and Pitchers by tapping on the appropriate link.
Tap on the NAME of the player you wish to acquire.
The player card will open and you will see either a yellow "Claim Player" button or a green "+ Add" button.
The yellow "Claim Player" button indicates that this player is not available until your league's Waivers processes. Tapping on the yellow Claim Player button will put in your claim for that player. If no other team manager with an earlier waiver claim has selected him, you will receive this player as your pick. See the "Claim a Player Off Waivers" FAQ for more details.
The green "+ Add" button indicates that this player is a Free Agent and is immediately available. When you tap on the green +Add button this player will either be added to your team immediately (if you have roster space) or a pop up will appear informing you to drop at least one player before your claim will process.
This is an example of the drop player step in claiming a player using Waivers. Note the banner alert informing you to drop at least one player.
Tap on the "Drop Button" and it will turn red. You may select more than one player to drop.
NOTE: Some players will have a "Can't Drop" status indicating they are currently on the Undroppables list.
You will need to confirm the transaction before the claim will process.
Tap the "Confirm" button to submit your claim.
