Auction League Help

Postby s1ay3r19 » Mon Jul 28, 2008 9:46 pm

Ive been playing fantasy football for the last 2 years now in a snake draft keeper league. And now i want to try my hand at a auction league. So im looking for any tips or hints for a auction league and im trying to find a good value sheet. Its a 12 team league, 15 or 16 man roster, standard scoring, $200 cap. 1Qb, 2RB 3WR, 1TE, 1K, 1DEF.

Hello, we actually will be putting a value sheet together, which you will be able to download to .pdf or print out for your research.

I think the best thing to remember is PATIENCE.

and look at it this way. I think you are using ESPN rules...

Essentially you need 8 players (pay $1 for a K, Def, and most backups)

QB, WR, WR, WR (backup/flex), RB, RB, RB (backup/flex), TE

So try and budget an average of $25 per position you need. You'll usually be able to get 3 solid wideouts, a great QB, and good RBs with that philosophy.

And if you get your QB for $20, then you can up one of your RBs to $30 if you must. Hope I helped!

I personally believe that only budgeting $75 for three running backs is a mistake. To be able to get good running backs in a $200 auction, you need to have the guts to spend the big bucks if you want good talent at RB. The previous persons advice can get you a good QB and WR core, but RBs win championships in Fantasy football, so my advice would be don't be too gun shy when bidding for your RBs, if you end up spending big bucks to get the RBs you want so be it, just don't go completely overboard. between 80 and 110 is I think a much more reasonable budget for your RBs. Just my opinion in auctions.

i spend around 120-15 on my RB's, get the very best, WR's are not as dependable year to year and QB's can be had cheap

We just finished a mock auction that used a $200 salary cap, 16 man rosters, same starting requirements. All drafts are different, but that should give you a good place to start. Here's the link to the forum (in draft rooms):

Here's a link to cbssportline's auction value rankings. It's based on a $100 cap so just double the values.

I hope that helps a little. Good luck! ;-D
