Jon Lester dropped. How much to bid?

Postby jaredwilliams700 » Sat Apr 28, 2012 9:47 pm

Hi all,

First post here. I am in a 10 team mixed league w/ ROTO scoring. Each of us started with $150 free agent budget. The minimum to add any player is $1. Jon Lester was just dropped today. Up to this point, the largest bid for any free agent has been $10. How high should I go for Lester? I have $130 left. I have never been in a league where you have to pay for free agents. Would it be crazy to bid $30? More? Less? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Depends on how bad you want him. I have no experience in FA bidding but if the top priced FA was $10 I'm guessing Lester is 3-4x better than whoever that guy was.

I agree. Tough to gauge, but a bid of $30 definitely sounds reasonable.
