Auction Draft no-show

Live auction draft tonight, one team let the league know this morning he couldn’t make the draft. We are scrambling to find a sit-in/replacement. If we don’t find one, what is the best way to handle 11 bidders while still keeping that 12th team? Thanks for the help!

Find someone from here with a zoom call maybe?

Thanks for the suggestion. The league voted against a virtual participant. We ended up doing an 11 team draft. Each week, one team will play against the average score for the week. What sucks is that our payout goes down but oh well.
