1) Doesn't matter but most I have seen is $100. I use $100 for all my leagues.
2) No, you have to have a set amount to start and end with.
3) No, If you bid $10, you spend $10. Following your idea it would allow everyone to bid $100 and dummy down.
4) We allow for $0 bids to be placed. That takes care of the bargain hunters.
It is the fairest system in my opinion. The only probelm I have ever encountered with it is the initial implementation as those with poorer teams in dynasty or keeper leagues feel they should get the higher priority. In a redraft league I have had no real problems.
All good info, the only thing I would add is for those in dynasty/keeper leagues you can make the starting amount of money larger for finishing in last and go from there. Now, what you would have to watch out for are the people trying to tank games...so, you could go to a lottery system similar to the NBA
