hehe, thanks joe. i'll give it a try.

i did a regular draft once, but you have to pay for players on this one, and we have only 200 dollars to work with. Should I go after LT, in a regular draft i know you should always pick him first, but I think alot of people will want him, and I might have to pay to much. Any stratagy you would use for this type of draft?

It really depends on how many players you draft and how many start for you. It also depends on if you get points for each reception. BUT...to be competitive, you can't go wrong with LT. If you are looking for value for your money, see how much Brady costs vs. LT. Then look at RBs like Barber, Lynch, Portis, etc. In a PPR, I might look at a guy like Houshmanzadeh over LT if he is significantly cheaper. Hope this helps!

I would say don't over pay for players, players like LT and Adrian Peterson are probably going to go for insane amounts.. I would say just go in here and find some sleepers and try and get a good overall team instead of one or two great players then have no money for the rest of your team.. Yeah a little more info about your league would help aswell..

Welcome to the Cafe! ;-D

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

viewforum.php?f=324

There's 2 main strategies that I know of. 1 is to spend a lot of $$ on a few key players that you really like...then just hope that you can get enough depth for when injuries occur. 2nd is to not overpay for the top players, but get all very good/good players. This team will be deep, but probably won't lead the league in scoring every week. I like trying to run up the price on players, but that's risky because you can end up winning someone you really didn't want.

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
