Online auction draft room

Postby firemedicusa » Wed Jan 23, 2013 6:05 pm

Can someone point me to a site to host my auction draft if one exists? I run a new league (only our second year) and I am looking for more versatility from my draft. Thank you.

All at once. Basically what I would like to do is have the draft at my house, but the couple owners that couldn't be there could log in to a website to participate. Everyone at the draft would have their own comp to log in as well.

More than likely the site you're using for your league should be able to accomplish this.

Their online auction room is not completed yet. I use fantrax. I'm looking for a separate site as a backup in case their room isn't functional by then. We just used the live chat room last year and that was kind of a pain.

Your other option is to sign up for CBS and use their 'free trial' to host the auction draft. I think ESPN allows free leagues to have auctions so you could do it through them as well.

ESPN has the capability to do what you want, but it does not retain the salary from year to year. You would have to do that part on paper.
