  • Force Bid and Steal Bid gives drafters more strategic bidding options

Draft Mechanics

Silent Auction Draft Format

In the silent auction draft format, each team enters a secret blind bid and when time expires, the top bids are revealed and the highest bid wins. When two teams tie for the highest bid, the timer resets and all teams get another shot at capturing the high bid - a real psychological battle.

  • Player Rerun gives teams a second chance to win a player in the event of a tie
  • Undo Auction enables the commish to go back and fix any oopsie

Poker Auction Draft Format

In the poker auction draft format, teams take turns bidding on each player. Once a team folds, they cannot bid on the current player anymore. This bidding sequence follows the draft order - starting with the team who nominated the current player - and continues until all teams but one have folded.

What Drafters Say Quotes from ordinary users

"The whole league enjoyed this very much and made my life a lot easier. Thank you"
Tyler in MN
"We just finished our draft, great site. Nothing but positive feedback. We'll probably use it next year even if we are able to gather for a draft party."
Dave
"We just completed our league auction last night and overall had a great experience. It really beats making the commissioner act as owner AND auctioneer at the same time."
John S.
