It was my understanding there would be no math...

Postby heff » Sat Aug 03, 2013 2:50 am

Hey all,
I've not got a brain for maths, but maybe someone here does.
I run a 10 team, 2QB, 2 DST auction league on ESPN, and am trying to set an appropriate auction budget. I've currently got it set at £250, does that seem about right for the roster settings below. Is there a method to caluclating what is the best auction budget based on roster settings that avoids too many players going for £1?

Cheers
Mike

What is the total roster size? No matter what I think you still have a good number of players going for $1. Depending on the budget it just gives a higher/lower distribution of the money. Top guy goes for $125 instead of $75, etc. The lower end guys and guys that fill out your roster will go for $1
