Draft Strategy

Here’s Who I’m Buying In Auctions

Over the past two weeks I’ve participated in six auctions, all triple-digit buy-ins. These are not mocks; I will play out each of these rosters. When given the chance to buy any player for 2017, these are the players I just can’t get enough of. These are all full PPR, $200 budget auctions. Some require three starting WRs with a flex, some require two, so there are some slight starting lineup variations. Otherwise, there are very standard league settings. One more difference is six-point passing TDs. I didn’t come into these auctions with an intention for my rosters to overlap significantly, but I certainly left the auction having achieved that. There are just some players I can’t understand the cost on, and have ranked so substantially higher from their price, that it’s hard to let them go in any situation. So I haven’t been. I’ve basically just been buying my guys. Here they are, from left to right chronologically with an August 17th auction starting at far left and one I wrapped up last night at far right.

  1. Would your strategy change if it was 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2WRs, 1 TE, and 1 Super Flex PPR? An interesting format change not discussed too much on this site.

  2. I like these teams a lot. Curious about the $4 for the Seahawks- what was the reasoning there? Also interesting to see the price variance of ebron. Any thoughts on my recent auction? In hindsight I think I should have gave up Odell and gotten a couple more WRs like Allen, cooper, demaryius, etc.

    Carr- 1

    West- 10
    McFadden- 11
    Henry- 6
    Rawls- 2
    Martin- 9
    Foreman- 1
    Ware- 8 (pre injury)

    Beckham- 57
    Jordy- 51
    Allen Robinson- 26
    Diggs- 14

    Ebron- 2

    Bills- 1
