    Auction Newbie Need help

    We are switching to auction for the first time and I'm wondering if some of our current rules are relevant and if so, how best to police them. For example, we have always had minimum and maximum position limits. In other words, in the snake draft, you were forced to draft a defense and/or kicker. My question, is it just better to not have any limits and let people draft until their money runs out (without exceeding the roster max of course) or stick to our current rules? If we stick with them, how do you police this, specifically the minimum position requirement? I can see a situation where a guy has a dollar left, but hasn't drafted a defense or a tight end.
  2. Thanks for the solution. I've had no issues with updating the file on my windows laptop and then sending over to my mac. The error only pertains to updating rankings and not actual draft operation correct?
  3. Using Excel for Mac and do not have IE on this machine. Do you know what to do if Chrome is the default browser?

    Average Auction Value Question

    Yes, we are going to give a discount for keepers. Something like 10%. And your suggestion about going off a site ranking is what I'm leaning towards. But if I do that, then it's like I'm giving everyone a cheat sheet. Having said that, how much does it matter because once players are bid on in real time, then the values start changing for other players. At least that's my understanding. So basically, everyone will know the starting point because of the AAV list provided to everyone, but to then everyone fends for themselves anyway once the auction gets going. Does this make sense or am I missing something here.
  9. We are doing our first auction draft this season. We also have keepers. A team can keep 3 but will have a value assigned to each that counts against their auction budget of $200.00. The auction is new for us and I’m a little unsure about auction values. There are obviously many websites that offer AAV lists/calculators, and I’m wondering if it is a bad idea to provide an official AAV list to our league members for the purpose of determining the value of their keepers pre-draft. In other words, would this be akin to providing draft cheat sheets to everyone in a standard serpentine selection draft? Will it screw up our auction? Is it better to let everyone fend for themselves like they would in a normal draft?
  10. I am the Commish in a keeper league. Next year we are increasing our keepers to 5 and moving from snake draft to auction draft. I lean toward keepers counting against the $200 auction budget. My question is, how do you determine the dollars a keeper cost? Would I use an Average Auction Value list from some fantasy site?

    ADP adjustment

    So in my keeper league, we have 23 players already slotted to draft picks. As a result, the ADP for the remaining players are a little skewed. Would I be able to manually adjust ADPs so I have more clear predictor when a player might go off the board or any other suggestion?

    Keepers without draft slotting

    OMG you think of everything! Thanks! That worked.
  13. In the past weve had 1 keeper per year and the keeper was slotted as the 1st round pick for the owner. This year weve added more keepers and the way our league works, some are slotted as draft picks and others are not. (we have a complex free agency system with weird compensation etc). So on the keeper tab Ive entered the keepers for each team and some of those are slotted as draft picks. For those that arent, I simply did not select a draft pick from the drop down box. However, this means the players that do not have draft picks associated with them do not show up on the roster tab. Only those who have a draft selection slotting are showing up there. Is there any workaround to this without having to assign draft picks to certain keepers in order to accommodate our unique situation?
  14. I have given that thought. Also, we are not allowing a team to bid what they don't have. Also, if a team ends up with multiple keepers with same round value, they have to use the next round up for each player.
