If you're looking to show off your auction skills this is a league you will enjoy.
League Fee: $0
League Prize: 8 Free 2009 league from MyFantasyLeague.com will be won
Here is the basic premise: owners will auction their team and that is it. After that its out of your hands. We will use WCOFF scoring and starting lineup requirements. Teams will auction a 25 man roster and the computer will automatically set the best possible lineup every week. Teams will be placed into 3, 4 team divisions and play each division opponent 2 times and everyone else once. 4 teams make the playoffs. Wild Card is awarded to the team with the most points not already in. Week 16 championship game.
There will be at least 2 or 3, 12 team leagues; one league will be considered the SuperLiga (Expert's League) and the other(s) will be feeder leagues set up similar to most European soccer leagues, otherwise known as a pyramid or ladder leagues. Top 4 from the top lower division will be promoted to the SuperLiga and the bottom four will be demoted to the lower division. So this should be a great test to see who the best auctioners are out their, year in and year out.
This is our second season so all newcomers will get a chance to compete against other new owners for a chance to move up the ranks and one day join the SuperLiga. Last year we had 24 teams in the auctionmaster leagues and we are open to expanding to 36 for the 2008 season.
Since the goal of this event is to create a sort of "peoples" expert league. The only requirement is that you must be willing to write a short evaluation of your auction strategy after the auction, why you picked your players and where you felt like you got the most value, and so on for each pick. I set up special forums just for this purpose so you'll have a chance to read each teams strategy after the auction as well as an oppurtunity to critique each owners strategy.
I designed this league so that even those with multiple leagues can play as it doesn't require any work during the season and should be a great way to show off your skills.
If you are interested register and post below I'll be adding additional leagues as demand requires:
If it seems like you heard of something really similar it's because you have! There is also a draft version of this league, and in some cases will be competing for prizes against draftmaster teams.
Additional details can be found on the league message board.
