Along with taxes, speeding tickets and flat beer, the notion of creating a budget is unpleasant for most people. The reality in auction drafting is that all teams have the same bidding constraints, so managing your auction well can give you a distinct advantage over the impulse buyers of the world.
Auctions are the most fun way to have a local draft because it involves everyone in the room on every player. They create the most fair leagues in that way - any team owner can own any player, he just has to want him a little more than anyone else. They also bring an entirely new level of entertainment to the room.
You have three basic bidding choices to make and each produces very different sorts of teams. Your decision on which one to pursue should depend on your comfort level with the team you end up. This is a critical decision because it will allow you to control your destiny for the season.
