    I'm really not a pain in the butt, although there is no way I can do a Saturday draft past 10 in the morning. I want to get this out there early, I dont have a problem auto drafting, but it's always funner if everyone is there! Sunday mornings are good, or weekday evenings.

    In auction drafts, teams are given a budget for acquiring players. They can exhaust this budget in any way they choose. Teams can bid on and draft any player within their remaining budget. The two highest ranked players could be drafted by the same team which would almost never occur in a standard draft.
    Before the draft, teams may customize players’ default auction values using the Edit Pre-Draft Player Values page. Default player values are based on a 12 team, 13-man roster league with a $260 default budget. If your league does not use these options, consider adjusting player values accordingly.
    During the draft players teams take turns nominating in a circular order (e.g. 1-12, 1-12, 1-12, etc.). A player auction begins once a nominating team places an opening bid on a selected player. Team managers may bid whatever amount they feel a particular player is worth. When a single high bid remains the player is awarded to the winning team and the bid amount is deducted from the team manager’s funds. This process repeats until every team's roster is completely filled.
    Teams have 30 seconds to nominate a player for auction. If no player is selected within the time limit, the system will automatically nominate the first player in their nomination queue. If a team does not have any players in their queue the player with the highest pre-rank value order balancing a player's roster will be nominated.
    When a player is nominated the default opening bid is $1. This amount can be increased by the nominating manager before submitting.
    Once a player is nominated he appears "on the block" and the auction begins. The nominated player's information and statistics are displayed once they are nominated. The auction clock will count down from 30 seconds. Any bids made within 10 seconds remaining will reset the clock to 10 seconds. The player is awarded to the manager with the highest bid when the auction clock counts down to zero.
    During an auction managers can automatically bid $1 more than the current high or manually entering a dollar amount. Managers can bid up to a dollar amount which allows them at least $1 for any remaining roster slots.:thumb:

    You can have whatever player you want. You can make your own strategy, you don't have to let your draft position decide what strategy you use.

    Auction draft was the most funny draft I've ever had in my fantasy career - you guys should absolutely consider it. And, you should think about giving adcanced league a try as well :D
