We had $100 last year, but it was completely arbitrary- this year, I want to make sure managers have the incentive to bid up players to boost FA salaries, but have enough to stay competitive all season. What's a reasonable amount?
bobnerns wrote:I like this idea. I've never used OnRoto so I don't know what sort of settings they have, but is it possible to have FAAB pickups NOT blind auction. Meaning can it be like the draft where bidding is sequential and visible to everyone? I think this would be a nice way to determine keeper prices through FAAB (might not appeal to you, just spitballing).

The problem I'm finding is, the FAAB is what we use but with so 3 pick ups a week, everyone that goes generally goes for $1. It's not like football, where there's a big week or an injury and you know on Monday half the league is targeting your guy. Any thoughts on how to promote competition on the waiver wire with the bidding? Perhaps dropping the FAAB, assigning auto $1 value and using a normal waiver wire?
mkultra wrote:How do you avoid a situation, like this:
Say I've got Pujols at $50, which I think is way too expensive to keep. I doubt anyone would pick him up at that price, so I waive him toward the end of the season and no one claims him at that salary. Since there's very little FAAB money left in the league, he gets re-acquired as a FA for, say, $10, which becomes his new salary.
