Auction Leagues

What are your best auction tips? Does league size change your strategy? How does roster construction change your strategy (i.e. 2 rb, 2 wr, 1 flex vs 2rb, 3 wr, 2 flex, etc.)? Would love to hear the community’s thoughts!

  1. Be prepared with your own spreadsheet with ideal $$$ value for players.
  2. Have a loose idea of % of budget you want (i.e., 40% towards RBs)
  3. Be ready to be flexible when people are bidding way higher than you planned, but don’t overreact. In other words, if someone you have in RB Tier 2 goes for $15 more than you planned, highlight the other Tier 2 guys that you could grab at a discount now. But also, know you may now need to pay more if you absolutely want a Tier 2 RB and there is only one left.
  4. Don’t overspend early.
  5. Do lots and lots of mock drafts and try using different websites to do it so the same “projected values” aren’t always there. Doing lots of mocks is probably the most important part.

Roster construction should change your strategy because you want to allocate your budget closely with how many starters you need at each position. If you lean more WR in flex, that % should be higher than RB.
