Duff, you in a hurry?

3 current winning bids equally $130. I guess that means you are applying the studs and scrubs mentality in this auction......

This format is definitely a different strategy than a standard auction where only one player is up for bid at a time. Now I have to factor in how badly I want any of the 3 WRs that are up for grabs, and hope I don't get stuck with two high-priced guys when I actually can only afford one, etc etc.

Hahaha. Maybe. I'm not used to this format either; I've always done these live and one at a time. I might not want both of those receivers but definitely want one (or do I?!?!) but getting both at the prices wouldn't be the end of the world... Plus, I'm confident in my ability to get value later on...

Could we have a thread listing the players that are currently up for auction? I'm thinking that would help everyone keep track of what's going on here, I just nominated Doug Martin, but had to check around a bit too see if he was nominated or not. Another list, like the list with the players taken, which a mod eidts as they check in on the auction.

Just a thought.

i do like that idea, and think it's necessary to do so.
we should start this change after monday 6:00pm EST, if anyone is against it, you are welcome to discuss your opinion in this thread, otherwise, let's speed this up

Honestly I'm barely able to keep up as is, entered a very busy few weeks this past week. We aren't drafting big rosters, I'd rather we start letting everyone nominate two people once everyones starting line-up is filled or something
