Waiver Order Opinion? (1 Viewer)

I run a 3 keeper plus 15 round draft league (18 total players).

Should the initial waivers be the same as round 1 or round 2 (assuming no trades of course)?

I know normally it just goes reverse of the draft, but in this case that would give the top waiver choice to last years champion, so I am thinking it might be better to keep it the same as round 1.

Figured I would gather some opinions on this.

We do blind bidding.

Yes, I like blind bidding too. However, I really want to hear opinions on the options I listed. Thank you.

Why would you penalize the guy who won last year for winning? If your waiver wire is either worst to first or ( my preference) a rotating waiver wire you have to start somewhere and last draft spot being first makes the most sense.

 
I HATE worst to first. I would prefer a random drawing for the initial waiver order. Then, whenever someone makes a waiver pickup, his team drops to the bottom. The order would not reset each week; a team stays on top of the order until they make a waiver claim.
