Waiver Priority Error??

Waiver Priority Error??

I'm the commissioner of my league and I got two texts this morning from two players in the league who were saying our #1 seed in the playoffs received a player ahead of them in the waiver priority.  Does anyone know if Yahoo has some sort of bug in the system affecting waiver priority?  In our league, the lowest seed gets the first priority, the next lowest seed 2nd, and so on.  In my case, three players were all going for Jamaal Williams.  THe 4th seeded player was supposed to get him as this transaction was his 1st waiver submission.  However, the #1 seed ended up with him.

Re: Waiver Priority Error??

https://help.yahoo.com/kb/fantasy-football/sln6427.html  Under 'About Reverse Order of Standings waiver priority', it says 

After each Game Week in the regular season, the waiver priority list is reset:

  • The new rank is determined by the reverse order of the current league standings (the manager with the lowest league standing gets 1st rank).
  • When playoffs begin, the waiver priority list stops resetting

If you click over to the Standings tab for your league, that's what it would go by, which doesn't update once playoffs start.
