Just tier your tossups together and take who ever is left.

My question isn't about who to take using tiers, I am just curious as to how people who do auctions take a player and create an exact dollar value.

I don't need to tier my tossups because they are either at the bottom or top of two tiers and I take whoever I feel is the better player.

I do tier players who I think will "breakout" and "sleepers".

sexson is by far the most safe choice here...but there is a grouping of 1b that i struggle to rank.... konerko, delgado, dunn, sexson, howard, berkman all pretty close to me...i also tend to struggle getting mid-way through OF's as there are so many similar type players. Its also very hard to rank SP's mid way through, because each has different strengths and weaknesses, youth and experience, injury risk, high risk, etc....

Since you're asking, it sounds like you don't create dollar values. So how do you rank players without using dollar values? How do you know what set of projected stats is worth more?


This is the first year I have done an auction draft. I usually just to basic re-draft leagues. I am curious as to how to equate dollar values to players.

The way I always rank players is by using the tier method. I like to create tiers. I create tiers for every position and I also create tiers for the top 50 players...

For the first few rounds I follow my top 50 player tiers, then after that its strictly on positional needs.


This always seems to be the response. "I use tiers." That still doesn't explain how you go about putting a player into a tier if you don't know how much his projected stats are worth. How do you know if Jeff Kent's projected stats are worth more than Marcus Giles' if you don't calculate dollar values?

I don't do auctions so dollar values don't mean anything to me.

The way I figure them into their respected tiers is simple. I take their three year averages in the stats that matter in my leagues, put more credence in the past year or an upward trend. I also use my own personal, people here, columnists and websites projections/expectations.

Seriously? I can tell by your sig and av that you are a phils fan, but until Ryan Howard actually hits 40 hrs once or twice he should be going about 5 rounds later than those other guys.

To stay on topic, I can't see the difference between rollins/reyes/furcal/lugo, so I guess I'll be holding out for lugo in the 10th.[/b]
