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.

Enjoy these fan-favorite options:

  • 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

  • Max Bid Rule enforces spending within a budget... or not, if that's your thing

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.

  • Auto Bid enables teams to enter a target bid and let the Drafty A.I. do their bidding
  • Undo Auction enables the commish to go back and fix any oopsie
