1st time in an auction league, help please

Postby aardvarks » Sat Feb 26, 2005 11:53 pm

It's a new keeper league 20 team 6 by 6. My cap is $200.

These are the catagories:

Runs, HR's, RBI's, SB, OBP, SLG.

Wins, Saves, Holds, K's ERA, WHIP.

My roster contains one of the following:
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI.
2 Util.
5 OF

9 pitchers, I cannot excede 750 innings for the season.

and 3 bench players

With that many roster spots how high should I bid for a superstar (pujols, Vlad ETC...) ?.

What would your breakdown be?

Average Joe's ____
$1's ______

Any help would be apreciated, thanks in advance.

First and foremost, you need to adequately assess your own values for this league (or use's dollar value projector). Any magazine value that you see is completely different from your league setup and you need to take that into effect.

After that, I would probably tell you to get one stud hitter, and one stud pitcher. After those two (maybe $30 for the hitter and $25 for the pitcher), I'd wait for the prices to stabilize and start grabbing solid contributors that are not rookies or second year players (more risky). This will almost assure you of a solid all-around team.

Since it's the first year, and with that many teams the waiver wire will be less likely to help you, I'd not put a lot of stock into $1 players, unless you really want to stack your team to win in future years.
