Question of the Week: Team A, a better ranked team, and won a claim instead of Team B, one of the worst ranked teams this week. Why did that happen?
Answer: Here’s the answer directly from the Owner’s Manual: During your fantasy playoffs, Fleaflicker never resets the waiver wire order in leagues. Once the playoffs start, the waiver order will reflect the end of the regular season order the entire rest of the year and never resets weekly.
In the league highlighted in the question, Team B had claimed players last during the previous waiver run, so they were still at the back of the line in terms of waiver priority and the ranking did not reset the first week of the playoffs.
