I have tried to put as much into one document as I possibly could. I couldn’t fit the players’ waist size and favorite liqueur on there, but I tried. These right here are for Non PPR Leagues. I will get the PPR Sheet up today as well and maybe a .5 PPR if I can wrangle the time. Now that we are inf full draft mode these are going to be my major focus for updating because keeping all of the other rankings updated is beyond all human capabilities at this juncture.

I’ve been doing quite a few auction drafts this season and I can tell you not one has gone the same as another.  So putting down values is a difficult task.  I took a look at other sites to see how they go about it and they were all over the map as well. This is because auction drafts don’t follow the same pattern as snake drafts and they change as the league size does.  You can easily see a player that is obviously below another player in everyone’s rankings go for more money.  It all depends on need and available cash.  This is why auctions are so fun!

I decided to put my player prices around the top of where I would take that player if it was the right situation.  My rough percentages for each position in a $200 Salary Cap, 16 player roster are QB 10% ($20), RB1 20% ($40), RB2 10% ($20), RB3 10% ($20), WR1 15% ($30), WR2 10% ($20), WR3 5% ($10), TE 5% ($10), K .05% ($1), D/ST .05% ($1), 6 Bench 13% ($26)

Those are rough.  Do not blindly follow them.  Auctions are all about staying flexible.  Here is my Auction Strategy Post from over at FanDuel.  I know you want to read it over and over again! But don’t forget to bathe and dress yourself.

    12 team points league, I can have my pick of any KR/PRs I want; seriously, there are seven guys who are projected to produce at least at Fred Jackson’s level. Is there any reason at all to have guys like Stewart, Denarious Moore, Greg Little, and AJ Green on my team when I can just go with returners and gobble up points?

    I just drafted last night in a 10-team non-ppr draft, 4 pts for passing tds, and it’s the first time i’ve played fantasy football. People were reaching for QBs and grabbing backups early so i got left with Eli, but i think i got some good position players as a result.

    We play 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/T, 1 W/R

    QB – Eli Manning, Kevin Kolb
    WR – Calvin Johnson, Mike Wallace, Santonio Holmes, Sidney Rice, Mike Thomas, Lance Moore
    RB – Jamaal Charles, Peyton Hillis, Mark Ingram, Marshawn Lynch, Fred Jackson
    TE – Dallas Clark
    K – Alex Henery
    D – NYG

    My question is, who will generally be a better producer in a WR/RB spot, a WR or a RB? And who among my backups do you like, Mark Ingram, Mershawn Lynch, Fred Jackson, Sidney Rice, Mike Thomas, or Lance Moore? Also, should I grab more depth at TE, or am I ok with just 1?

    @Feeding the Abscess: Go with the guys who score. The new rules could hurt kick returners some.

    @Jeff: Looks solid. I would probably lean RB in the flex for non-ppr and Ingram would be my choice in a vacuum.

    Hey Doc. Have my draft tomorrow. I get 1 point for every 20 return yards. Are there any (wr or rb)/returners I should consider taking higher?
    Thanks

    Potatoes to chips, I have no idea about any rules changes. I’m a baseball stat nerd trolling fantasy football this year. What was the rule change that may affect KRs?

    Thanks for the tiered rankings! Very helpful. I saw that you had Julio Jones slightly ahead of A.J. Green. In a non-PPR keeper league, who would you prefer long-term?

    @Randy: None that I’m in love with right now. I’m still investigating.

    @Feeding the Abscess: They moved the kickoff up so many kicks are going to go deep into the endzone.

    @Alan: They are really close. I like AJ slightly better long term if they get a QB.

    Hey Doc. What do you think of the Gore situation. He did not play yesterday due to his contract issues. He is an interesting option in the mid to late second round, but his current contract status, which is not really a holdout, is making me nervous of using a second round pick on him. Not as nervous as a Chris Johnson holdout selection, but it provides doubt nonetheless. I don’t mind taking the injury risk associated with Gore, but he actually has to be playing in order to be an injury risk……

    Doc,

    How many teams do these auction prices assume?

    Doc,

    Can we get some updated projected points? Thanks.

    How did I do drafting my team?
    Should I drop anyone or trade to make any improvements before the season starts?
    Anyone you think might be a free agent in my leage (it is kind of difficult to show you who is available, although Cedric Benson is…) that I should pick up?

    1st Year of 10 Team PPR Keeper League
    QB: Romo
    RB: Forte
    RB: Shonn Greene
    Flex: V Jax

    I am in a 12 team auction keepers league (2 keepers) and I am debating whether to keep Peyton Hillis for $22 as a RB2 or Rashard Mendenhall for $46 as a RB1. I will also be keeping Hakeem Nicks for $18. Any thoughts?
