Short version - I am going to be auction drafting this year in a start-up mixed pretty standard roto league with about 15 teams. Our first draft. If there is no undervalue being brought in, then what are values like?
Back in 1993 I played my first year of serious fantasy baseball. I came into a mixed roto league with about the same situation I describe above. It was very tough to compete because there were some ridiculous bargains on guys like Kenny Lofton and Frank Thomas on guys' rosters.
I'm wondering what it will be like to auction draft from scratch like this with no undervalue being brought in. Obviously, it will be a long day
But what is a good strategy? Is it easy to recognize undervalues in mid-to-top tier players? How rich is the end-game with talent?
Is there some sort of mechanism our league can put in place to make the draft go a little faster and/or make sure we don't draft a slew of mega-bargains that take years to get back to the draft pool? Or maybe I'm making assumptions that aren't true?
Please share your experiences and opinions...
