I really want no part of an auction draft. But you can go on espn and take part in a mock if you want to see how it works.

But basically, whoevers turn it is nominates a player, then all bid on that player and highest bidder gets him. All start out with the same amount of money.

Ive never done a real one. But I guess if you cant resist spending all of your money on the first 5 players then the auction style draft is not for you.

All I am saying is that there are 12 Texans fans playing and ALL of them are going to want AJ. And the idea of drafting a team that is FULL of players I wanted, rather than players I could care less about just sounds interesting.

Auctions are better live and in person than over the net.

Seems generally opposed at the moment so it looks like we are having a live standard one.

I pre-set my rankings. As I may be out, do I need to select anything to auto draft my team based on my rankings saved? Also, if by chance I am able to make it - is there a way to turn the auto-draft off (if it is on)?


Just don't wanna slow down the process whether I'm there or not.

If you are not there for your first pick, after the time elapses you will automatically be put on Auto-draft. If you show up afterwards, a simple click will take you off auto-draft.

I'm definitely hoping for a middle pick in the 5-7 range. In 12 team or bigger leads, having to wait so long in between picks is really torture. I've already picked #2 overall in one league and #3 in the other so we'll see.


But i think two years in a row in this league, i've been #1 overall for whatever reason.
