Sounds interesting but how long is the bidding? Is it always going to be day long or week long that ends every Sunday so you determine which player you get for the next week? It does seem like it might take a lot more time than other leagues since you have to check which teams has the most games the next week and which players you can bid on that is cheap that has been playing well.
Basically you start with a set amount of cash ($200, for example). Then a draft order is determined. Once your turn is up, you have 30 seconds to nominate a player. Then the whole group gets 30 seconds to bid on that player. In essence, it reduces much of the randomness of a standard draft. If you really ant a player, you can get him at a price.
Bidding wars can be intense, and you have to think fast
because the clock is always ticking down.
Strategies can involve paying 70 bucks for a few 1st rounders you really want, spending 30-40 a player for a more balanced team, or waiting for others to expend their budget then jumping on all those sleepers you wanted while other managers are strapped.
New leagues can implement budgets in regards to waivers and trades. The auction leagues that I've participated in do away with the cash aspect at the conclusion of the draft.
They can be fast and furious and I recommend all fantasy ballers try one at least once.
