    If anyone wants to try a casual auction league, my boy is looking for a few more managers. These drafts are fun if you've never tried it. Hit me up.

    How does an auction league work? Can't find much info on it and how it differs, also I am feeling a bit too lazy to do an in depth search.


    Also, I think we need to see if everyone pays up for the regular wager first before we start thinking about regular season winners prize.

    never done one but i think the premise is every week you get $x amount to spend. i think the default is $100. so someone like LBJ or Durant would carry a $20 price tag for that week. Howard might be $19. CP3 $19-18....and so on. Rosters are generally smaller.

    What I'm not sure is how you get said player or if you can bid more. there is probably 100 different ways to set up that type of league. it seems like a ton of management. my buddy had one in baseball and it took him almost an entire sunday afternoon figuring shit out.

    i've only done it for football, so i'll assume it works the same.

    you get X amount of money to spend, and you can bid whatever amount you want for whatever player you want. whoever bids the most money gets the player.

    And you win via roto style (most stat points at the end of the season) or H2H style (you go against someone every week and you get points by beating your opponent)?

    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.

    Oh ok, so it isn't a weekly thing, just a one time draft? BDeuce mentioned you get a certain amount weekly, in which that would mean you'd have an auction every week, which would have been very difficult.

    But in the end though a player can have more players than the other or are there a set number that one must have? Like what if you run out of money or you have extra?

    If you go through Yahoo or ESPN, they won't let you run out of money. They will require that you have $1 per player to round out your roster. If you blow your wad early, there's a whole lot of waiting around in the middle rounds.

    So after the draft, it then depends whether it is a H2H or Roto system? The auction is just for the draft and/or picking up fa's and trading?

    Yeah, it's just for the draft. Doesn't matter if it's h2h or roto.

    damn, wish I wasn't doing so many leagues. An auction draft sounds fun. As for the payouts, lets wait a week or two andsee if everyone pays (I think were at 9 so far) and go from there. If we have a season winner, then playoff winners that payout 1-3, we won't even be able to buy uggs and we'll have to settle on some sketchers or something haha.

    RFX should donate a pair of sneakers to the regular season winner.

    i did auction drafts last year, for football and basketball. they are a lot of fun and more nerve racking (but in a fun way). i also seem to get a much better team in auctions than when i do a snake draft
