Standard leagues (Free and Prize Eligible) use the following method for determining which team has priority in waiver claims.
Move to last after claim, never reset order - The team which makes the most recent pickup is automatically moved to the last slot.
Waiver claims can be made at any time before the player clears waivers. Any player who is dropped within 24 hours of a game start is not available to be added to a team roster, and will appear on waivers 8 hours after being placed on waivers.
Waivers process daily beginning at 3 a.m. ET.
WAIVER SYSTEM (In-season)

Move to last after claim, never reset order The team which makes the most recent pickup is automatically moved to the last slot.
HOW THE WAIVER ORDER IS DETERMINED AFTER AN AUCTION DRAFT
