Dynasty Start Up Draft Format - Auction or Snake

Start up draft - all players (rookies + actives) - draft format advice requested:

Auction is more balanced - provides all league owners the opportunity to bid on all plays with an even playing field. However, I’m concerned about league members unfamiliar with auction strategies, and also how auction plays out best for a dynasty start up (30+ players w/ Taxi squad seems excessively long and difficult to budget for).

Is snake balanced enough for all? What has been everyone’s experience?
