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 again. I know you want to read it over and over again! But don’t forget to bathe and dress yourself.
The player values are for a standard non-PPR league. Here is a look see, but click here for the whole schah-bang!
If you really like someone, go higher. Don’t get shut out. But these are here to help guide you and hopefully you can get some of the guys you like for less than these values, which will make you feel better about going higher on some. If you are consistently going above these values you may be backing yourself in a corner. If you consistently stop bidding at these values and you aren’t getting any top guys at all, jump head first!
