A standard draft keeper league can have an owner trade DP's for the next season to bolster their squad. With an auction league that's not possible, it's basically only players for players. I'm thinking of allowing trading auction dollars for the following season, but I'm afraid that might promote a "scorch the earth" mentality for someone trying to win this year and end up just leave after the season - the new owner comes into a team with no $ for the upcoming draft.
I've thought about maybe adding caps but I'm starting to think I might be opening pandora's box here, just let sleeping dogs lie.
This all seems pretty analogous to a keeper league with a standard draft. In that case you worry about an owner absorbing tons of expensive players they can't protect and bailing after the year. And in my keeper league I've mitigated that risk by incorporating an in-season salary cap. I imagine the corollary would be to say, "You can trade auction dollars, but every team must retain at least $X for the following year's auction.
