Auction VS. Draft Strategy

Postby BeefSandwiches » Fri Aug 20, 2004 12:58 pm

Does anyone employ a set strategy going into an auction? In a draft you can USUALLY predict within reason the first half of the draft, i.e. you have a good idea who will most likely be available at your slot.

In an auction you have no idea if the firsy guy is going to open bidding on Priest, LT2, or Donte Stallworth so you have to be ready every time. Typically, rule of thumb is try to not blow your wad on one guy or blow it all at the beginning of the draft but the latter depends again on who is being bid on.

I am interested in different owners' mindsets going sitting down at the auction...

Definitly a key strategy is finding out who other owners like. Do this by general conversation. Remember the guys they like and put on a poker face and bluff. Drive up the price on these guys and make them pay for who they want. But be careful, dont get stuck paying the high price. Make them think that you also want that player.
