  • So another message board I frequent started a keeper league this year, with an auctin draft. I've never done an autcion before but I gotta say I enjoyed it much more than the standard snake draft. Anyway, here's how my team ended up.

    QBs: Jay Cutler ($10), Chad Henne ($3)
    RBs: Ryan Grant ($33), Matt Forte ($23), C.J. Spiller ($20), Leon Washington ($5)
    WRs: Andre Johnson ($48), Hakeem Nicks ($13), Mike Sims-Walker ($11), Derrick Mason ($6)
    TEs: Owen Daniels ($9), John Carlson ($1)
    PK: Mason Crosby ($1)
    DE: Saints ($1)

    The top five players by cost ended up being Chris Johnson ($65), Ray Rice ($62), Adrian Peterson ($58), Maurice Jones-Drew ($58) and Aaron Rodgers ($50).

  • Auction draft is definitely a lot more fun. I think it takes a lot more skill to build a team through an auction than through a standard draft.

    I think people are often scared away by auction drafts thinking they won't get it.

    Here's a mock-auction draft I did on yahoo! with 14 teams (many automated) with a $200 budget.

    1. Ryan Grant (GB - RB) $42
    2. Peyton Manning (Ind - QB) $25
    3. DeSean Jackson (Phi - WR) $16
    4. Ronnie Brown (Mia - RB) $28
    5. Marques Colston (NO - WR) $18
    6. Michael Crabtree (SF - WR) $17
    7. Chad Ochocinco (Cin - WR) $12
    8. Brett Favre (Min - QB) $5
    9. Visanthe Shiancoe (Min - TE) $5
    10. T.J. Houshmandzadeh (Sea - WR) $5
    11. Reggie Bush (NO - RB) $6
    12. Minnesota (Min - DEF) $7
    13. Toby Gerhart (Min - RB) $1
    14. Ryan Longwell (Min - K) $10
    15. Laurence Maroney (NE - RB) $3
    "Go for Broke" - 442nd Japanese-American Battalion

    Shaun Alexander #37 for the HoF - 119 Games 2176 Att 9429 Yards 4.3 YPC 100 TDs (112 TDs total) 2005 MVP
