1st ever PPR Auction Draft- How did i do?

Postby Mcmatto » Fri Sep 02, 2011 1:55 am

Got invited to friends league 2 hours before draft. Never done a auction draft and wow is it different!
8 teams and we start .. Obv the league is set up different which is cool. standard scoring with .5 ppr. My strategy was to pass on the big big names which everyone (most 1st auction draft as well) overbid. I got a little impatient in the middle of the draft though.

qb(2) Matt Schaub ($21), Kevin Kolb ($4)
RB (3) MJD ($30) , Matt Forte ($22), Ahmed Bradshaw ($21),
WR (3) Reggie Wane ($22), Aquian Boldin ($11), Santonio Holmes ($7)
Flex (2) Peyton Hillis ($19), Shonn Greene ($11)
Te (1) Kevin Winslow ($5)
Bench (5) Marshawn Lyntch ($6), RIcky WIlliams ($4), BenJarvus Green Ellis ( $4), Jermey Maclin ($7), (Kyle Ortin ($3))

picks i like - Peyton hillis for $19, Kevin Kolb $4m Holmes for $7, Shonn Greene for $11

made some mistakes for my first draft - overpaid for schaub, ricky williams (misclicked in draft), Marshawn lynch

stock piled at running back towards then end (still hate lynch and williams although lynch can be ok) hopefully for trade bait or might drop them

overall not bad for my first draft i think? I found out you need to be very patient in these things, especially with inexperienced players.

I'm concerned about drafting 3 QBs -- don't see where our third ever gets a start and not sure who's trading for Ortin.

Running back stable looks good.

WRs are OK, curious myself to see what kind of season Boldin has. I kept waiting for him to break out last season but didn't really happen. Maclin is my favorite pick below at $7. If you watched the Eagles last year you know that guy is money. Way more looks than desean jackson, desean just had a few freak of nature plays but it's hard to repeat that.

we start 2 QB's so picked up Ortin for the bye week although i screwed up and he has the same bye has Kolb. so have to drop him anyways and we have to pay for Add/Drops :(.

team overall, average

players you got for good price are MJD 30, Forte 22, Wayne 22, Holmes 7, Greene 11, BJEG
player you that's overpriced are Kolb, Williams,

unlike most first auction starter, who spend too much on top elite RB, Q, sometime WR
you spend too little.

If you are targeting Schaub with 21, might as well pay 25 for Rivers, brady or bree.
imo, kolb, ortin, williams and lyntch are all $1 BN player (not their projected value, but the money i am willing to bid on them) therefore, you could save $14, 14+11 from Greene = 25 i would replace Greene with BJGE, therefore, 25 extra can turn your Bradshaw into Charles sometime.

However, all my auction team is 10ppl league with QB RB RB WR WR WR, therefore, things might change.
my best auction results is

QB: Michael Vick, Joe Flacco
RB: Arian Foster, Maurice Jones-Drew, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, LaDainian Tomlinson
WR: Roddy White, Mike Wallace, Johnny Knox, Braylon Edwards, Roy Williams
TE: Rob Gronkowski, Brandon Pettigrew
PK: Neil Rackers
TD: Green Bay Packers
