You did it right, in my opinion. Brady, Gronk, and Foster at those prices are going to be steals once you see what other people will end up paying for Rodgers, McCoy, Rice, etc. You're still going to have to pay a steep price to get a top tier WR, but at $1 you should still be able to get some rookie RBs who may be able to start this year. Best of luck, and be sure post your final roster with dollar values! I'd also be curious to see what some other top talent sold for, but I know in my auction league the guys who were nominated first ended up being the best value.

Wow...didn't realize you were in an IDP draft with such large rosters. But I do think that your QB, RBs, and TE will carry you a long way. Obviously your WRs are the weak spot, but I think you need to wait a couple weeks into the season to see how numbers are panning out. Could possibly parlay one of your top RBs for 2 tier 1 WRs if it comes down to it.
