FAB amount inquiry

First year using the FAB system and I love it, but I think that $100 budget for the year is a bit low. Am I wrong? Its only week 4 and half the league has blown their budget so this is the main reason I am asking

What FAB budget amount you use?

$100 is pretty standard. RTSports uses $1000. But it doesn’t matter if it’s $1 or $1,000,000; people will still bid by percentages. So if Chuba Hubbard was worth $40 under a $100 budget, people would still bid 40 cents of a $1 budget, or $400,000 of a $1,000,000 budget, to get him.

Sure, if you could increase the budget to $1000 and everyone still bid $40 for the desirable players, you could save a lot of FAAB for later–but people will always adjust their bids based on the FAAB available, so the amount of FAAB you start with is really irrelevant.

That makes perfect sense, thank you for the response! I think a $100 budget is good for the future and we just have a lot of owners who have never done FAB so I think it will be easier to maintain in the years to come
