If anyone is interested in getting into an auction style league, here is your chance. Here are some of the basic items.
Auction format, but eBay style proxy bidding. That means you open up bidding on Peyton Manning. You place a bid for $40 on him. He then enters the draft at a price of $1 and a 24 hour clock begins. Team B comes in and raises the bid on Manning to $30 dollars after 12 hours has passed. The computer, acting as your proxy, raises your bid to $31 (your high bid was $40 remember) and the clock DOES NOT RESET. The only time the clock resets on a player is when a NEW team has the high bid on a player. So Team B has to bid $41 to gain control of the Peyton Manning bid and then the clock restarts at 24 hours.
It's a 16 team dynasty league so you keep whoever you like so long as you are willing to pay for the increased salary. Every off-season every player on every roster get a salary increase based on the prior years performance. Even the scrubs get an increase if they didn't do anything. This increases turnover and ensures that there are players available to bid on every off-season which makes for a LOT of activity.
There is also a one round rookie only draft with set salary prices. Just like the NFL draft if you are picked #1 overall, you generally get a bigger contract than the #2 pick and so on. So everyone gets to draft one rookie during the draft (barring any trades that occur) at a set price. Where you pick him determines his salary, the earlier the pick the bigger the salary you have to pay him.
