Need Strategy Advice for 16 Team Auction League

Postby BCGrindrod » Thu Feb 24, 2005 4:45 pm

Hello,

I am participating in a 16 TEAM H2H Keeper League where the draft method is auction with a $260 million cap. We get to keep 5 players each season from 24.

I'm presently using a guide that lists Pujol's suggested price at $41. I figure that for his age (25), this guy can certainly anchor my franchise for at least another 10 years. However, the guide is basing this on a 10 to 12 team league.

With 16 teams in the league, would it be silly to spend much more on such a player or should I look into looking at a lower ceiling value so as to not get caught in a situation where I have a star franchise player (Pujols) surrounded by 23 pieces of ham like Jose Macias, Charles Johnson & Tomo Ohka...

In essence, I would need somebody to tell me if I should be ready to spend 2x on a star player or divide that value by 2 becaus eof the amount of teams in the league.

Thanks in advance!

what i would do is in the inital stages push the cost up of players whom you are bidding on so that when someone outbids you for someone like arod or pujols they will be more reluctant to bid on other pieces which will help you beat the ass off them

as any auction have your top bid for a player in mind and try not to exceed it.
