Mock Auction
Ended July 24, 2003
 

This mock auction was conducted by twelve fantasy football fanatics from our message boards. It was based on a league using standard performance scoring, bidding with a $200 salary cap on 16 player rosters. It had a blend of very experienced and rookie auction bidders. To determine how these values would play out in your salary cap, just take the auction value here and multiply it by .005 and then multiply that number (percent) against your salary cap to see what the percentage of your cap would be an equivalent.

For example - Portis went for $64 here and your salary cap is $600. That translates into (64 x .005) x 600 = $192

  Total Top 3 Top 3 Average Top 12 Total 13th - 24th Totals
Quarterback $98 $33 $202 $28

This distribution of how money was applied to positions across the league is fairly representative of what happens in a standard performance league. This shows quarterbacks being valued fairly lowly considering their impact to scoring but with only one starter, almost all the money went to the top 12. It appears that there were some very nice values at quarterback after the first five were taken.

Runningbacks and Wide Receivers were very highly valued since they score well and two starters are needed. Tight Ends were surprisingly high for those top three considering in this scoring they make only a marginal difference even with the best ones. This is representative though in leagues that require tight ends, since all it takes are three individuals that really want a "name" tight end to drive up the initial prices.

Place kickers and defenses had no love in this auction and in this scoring system - that is probably smart.

If you want two good running backs or a top level wide receiver - break out the checkbook early.
