auction value question/problem

Postby bflan0524 » Mon Mar 26, 2007 11:30 am

hello, i am doing a salary cap league. due to time constraints i cant hold an auction, so we are doing a reg draft with auction values (provided by sportsline) used as the contracts, so if pujols auction value is 44 bucks, thats what his contract would be. however some auction values have players like david wells for zero bucks, which just doesnt make sense, your essentialy getting a free player, any ideas on how to procede? does this make sense

To be consistent with those values, I would say you would give those $0's a $1 value. You can't really make them more expensive than that.

Fantasy Auctioneer an option?

It sounds like you are doing your draft online anyway, you should consider using We have used it the last two years and it has worked out great. It amounts to a little over $2 per owner, it is $29.99. The downside is that you would have to get each owner to register at their site, which take five minutes at most. Then as commissioner you would have to add the keepers. After the auction you would then have to add the players to whatever stat service you use. The upside is a true auction, and the system does a great job of managing the auction for you.

Thanks - Rey
