So my league decided to move to an auction format last year and it was a total blast. Since it was also a keeper league, I could use some advice on which players I should target. So as not to make this about my team, I won't list my team, but here is a little information about our league setup.
- keep 4 players
- $260 cap, player's salary increases by $3 each year (max 3 years)
This may be a dumb question, but is the primary objective to keep the players which represent the best bargain relative to what their expected value will be? In other words, if player A's salary is $3 and their expected value this coming season is $13, should I always pick this player over somebody whose salary is $20 and their expected value this coming season is $28? Is it just a math problem?
Also, for those of you who've participated in leagues like this in the past, do owners typically keep the studs like Arod, Pujols, etc... or do they prefer the youngsters like Weeks, King Felix? It's going to be tough getting value from the studs when their salaries are going to be in the mid-40's. On the other hand, I don't want to be locked out of studs either if everybody else keeps theirs.
Any other thoughts or words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated. Thanks and it's good to be back!
