Mock Auction Drafts?

Postby Brainstorm » Tue Jan 29, 2013 9:54 pm

My league is transitioning to an auction league this year, and I'd like to try a few mock auction drafts to get used to them. Are there any sites this can be done on? I know Mock Draft Central only does snake drafts.

Maybe it's too early?

I know couchmanagers.com has auctions, but I'm not sure if they fill up. I'd be down to get a group to do one one of these days if enough people are interested.

Yeah, you gotta get a group of guys together for a mock auction, you won't be able to just go on MDC and get a legit read on anything.

Ditto on down for one.

I'm thinking like a Saturday, 10 AM PST (1 PM EST)? I can do it pretty much any weekend other than President's weekend.

I'd love to join one of these and the time works good for me.

Yahoo has mock auctions, when their season opens. Other host sites may as well in their mock tools.

Auction is great glad your league is changing, enjoy.

The problem with the mock auctions on yahoo and espn is people horse around, make ridiculous bids, and leave halfway through. Let's set one up here and get a strong, legit mock auction together. I can do one at that time on a Saturday.

12.


Maybe just do 12? With the live and auction aspects of this, perhaps keeping the number to a standard 12 will be most efficient and helpful to those looking to gauge prices and such.
