League is maybe changing to a Salary Cap...please advise

Postby aman74 » Wed Aug 02, 2006 12:26 pm

Hi all, our league may be changing from a traditional league to one where we use and auction to draft and a cap during the year. I have done an auction style draft, but never a cap. We are currently tossing ideas around and voting on which way to go.

I always felt that the cap worked better for dynasty leagues? If you have any suggestions on ways to make a cap league work without a dynasty element please chime in.

It seems like it will cause alot of limitations. Say I have 2 players that have a high value, but that changes throughout the year via injury or what have you, and I trade them for one player. The other guy would have to dump alot of players just to fit the trade? I guess I can understand that if you are in a dynasty and building for another year. Or in baseball where starting lineups are more flexible on the whole.

What other issues are there with this style of league?

Thanks in advance!
Finally won a league last year.

Is this in the right area? I couldn't find a more appropriate forum.

This is the right forum...

I would suggest you look in the "Draft Room" Forum, and look for some Auction leagues and read over their rules. There should be quite a few that you can review and see which one you like best.

Hopefully that will help
