If the price is dirt cheap and you don't want the other guy to get him, you should bid on the guy - not tell others to bid on him.
You may not have the cap room to bid up the price... most leagues have the rule that your bid cannot make you exceed the cap.
Then you should have saved some cap room.
Think of it this way, if you were interviewing for a job, and got to the point where you were talking about how much you would get paid, and the company said a big number - a lot more than you expected, how would you feel if someone called the company and said, "I know there are a lot of people who would do that job for less than that, but not me"? The company then rescinds the offer and gives you a lowball number. How pissed would you be that someone stuck their nose in your business, with no risk to themselves, and cost you a lot of money? I bet you wouldn't be saying anything like, "all's fair in fantasy football and compensation".
