Need Help! Desperate! Auction Draft! WHIR!!!

Postby illad3lph » Thu Jun 02, 2011 9:04 am

Ok, so I am in a 16 team PPR auction league with a $250 salary cap. I felt that a lot of players were overpriced because people were spending more freely in the beginning. Therefore, I kind of screw myself out of the top players. Right now I still have all my money and there are a lot of WRs available, but few RBs. Right now the best available are Forte, Knowshon and Blount. Both Blount and Forte are up for auction currently at $27 (Blount) and $45 (Forte). Do I need to put a bid in for one or can I just try and take advantage of cheaper WRs that I could swing for a better RB? Let me know. WHIR!!! Thank you!

It really kind of depends on your starting requirements.

Forte is a decent RB1 in a 16-team PPR league. What have similar RBs gone for? Don't freak out and overpay now for a RB if you have been disciplined to this point.

25% of budget is probably a good deal on Forte. Blount is sort of a risk in PPR, don't want him to be your RB1. I'd pay more for Forte before settling for Blount if those are the 2 best options on the block.
