With the FAAB budget, is it a set amount of money that we have to ration throughout the entire season or does it reset every so often? Also, the Yahoo explanation seems to suggest it's only used when it comes to claiming players off of waivers, but has no mention of free agents. Is it only going to apply to fighting over players who are on a waiver period?
It is a set amount of money that does not reset. The FAAB budget is only used for players who are on waivers, not for free agents. This is a good observation though, because it kind of kills the point of having a budget if we're not using it most of the time. I've played in hoops leagues that use a FAAB budget, and it was a weekly scoring league with weekly free agent pickups. Same system that fantasy football uses essentially.
If I was to make a recommendation, it would be to either eliminate the FAAB system and go standard daily pickups or implement the FAAB system with weekly pickups (maybe weekly lineups as well).
