It depends on the size of your league and your roster sizes, but a lot of auctions end with a $1 pcik-a-thon as everyone is out of money and filling in their bench or positions they let go. Sort of the nature of the animal and it is referred to as the Stars and Scrubs method of bidding. Namely you buy top tier players and then fill in with cheap alternates you hope to find at the end of the draft when people have little if any spare cash to spend.

As an example, I just finished an auction last weekend where in a matter of 30 mnutes R. Hernandez went for $13 and then as the money dried up significantly, I grabbed M. Barrett for $1...Matt Lawton for $1...Floyd for $1....Huff for $6 etc.

Leaving a couple of bucks ont he table is no big deal.

This is the auction keeper league 3 here at the cafe. It's getting towards the end and many owners have finalized their rosters. No one has more than $10 at this point and a couple can't bid more than a $1. We are mainly filling bench spots and picking sleepers at this point. I would have gone $2 on Mench if I could.
