First Auction

Postby JimmySkip » Thu Mar 11, 2010 5:08 pm

Just finished my first auction style draft, had been nervous about it because I had only done regualr snake styles up to this point. I've tried some mock auctions and noticed that a lot of people splurge early and have nothing to bid with relatively quickly, so I schooled myself in patience and only drafted for good value early with hopes of scooping up most of the second tier talent when people ran out of money. It worked, and it didnt work. People were spending $50+ on first rounders and I was able to have my pick of players pretty soon in the draft, but I ended up with waaay too much money left over and wish I had spent big on maybe one more impact player... This was a yahoo public league for anyone who wants to take anything away from my experience. Team is in my signature...

Looks like you have a lot of speed. That's a great price for Reyes. You look a little light on power. Pitching looks fine. Wilson's price is crazy, but I'm assuming that was an end of the draft deal where you had extra money. This is all assuming it's 12 teams. Please put how many in your signature.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!
