tips for converting to auction draft

Postby bloul11 » Thu Feb 15, 2007 1:54 pm

2007 will be our 3rd year of this keeper league. We are planning on changing it to an auction style draft. the problem i'm having is how do make a value for the players the teams want to keep. Also what is the basic set up that other leagues are using. We don't currently use team defense we do DB,LB,DL that may have to change.

Assuming every team keeps the same number of players, just allow each team to keep the players and then use a set budget to fill the rest of the roster.

If you want to assign salaries to the keepers, you could either choose a service that assigns value (i.e. CBS or ESPN) or set a standard $ for each keeper (for example $10 in a $100 budget).


If you wanted to slowly convert from the 1st option (no salary assigned keepers) to assigning keepers salaries, slowly introduce the change.

For example, year 1 allow 3 keepers w/out salaries. Year two only allow 2 keepers w/out salaries, etc. After 2-3 years the transition would be complete.

i am now wondering if it would be fair to find 2006 preseason dollar values and just take those into the draft/auction with us in 2007. So each keeper would cost what ever they would have been drafted for last year. Any dollar rankings going forward would not be fair because it would eliminate the value of what were sleepers,i.e. Colston. Being fair is my main concern at this point. Which also brings up the point of teams trading late in the season for keepers to have next season. For example i traded Portis away when he got hurt to another team that was near last in league for Andre Johson. For that other team it would suck because what was a good keeper suddenly becomes a high dollar risk.

Use a source that all agree on for average dollar value prior to the 2006 season.

Then, whatever your cost will be to keep a player just factor in.

Let's say you want to keep LT. Say his avg 2006 value according to Yahoo (just to throw a source out there) was $40.

Now let's say if you are setting a rule that to keep a player it costs a $5 raise.

Therefore, to keep LT this year costs you $45.

Probly the simplest way I can think of that doesn't involve a lot of personal opinions being set.

Here is a mock auction from last year held at the cafe.

I will look for some other sources outside of the cafe with 2006 dollars assigned.

From Sept 5th 2006
