What Are Blind Bidding Waivers?
Blind Bidding is a free agent waiver move that allows all league owners an equal chance of acquiring free agents. The team that bids the most for any particular player wins that player, and is deducted the amount bid from their Blind Bidding Budget. In our Versus Fantasy Football Leagues, each team is awarded $1,000 “Blind Bidding Dollars” at the beginning of the year, and can spend as little or as much of it as they choose. No other owners can see what other owners are bidding for each individual player.
We at Versus believe Blind Bidding is the fairest waiver system available for our leagues. The Blind Bidding process gives each team an equal chance at acquiring free agents. It is not a “worst-to-first” process, and there is no mad rush for players at a certain time each week. After Week 1 kickoff team owners may submit their bids between 1:00pm EST Sunday, and 10:00am EST Wednesday each week.
If you have any questions regarding the Blind Bidding waiver process please email the commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org
