What are your opinions on a blind bid Fantasy Football Auction league? Basically, instead of having the normal auction process, a player is nominated, then everyone writes a number on a piece of paper and the highest number gets the player. I think it's ridiculous.

I need outside views because this has been proposed by a manager in my league and some people seem to like the idea. The idea of losing money by blindly overbidding is something I can't accept. Winning Arian Foster with a blind bid of $50 when I could have had him at $40 is ludicrous and wasteful in my eyes. I believe I have some people who are afraid of the strategy a traditional auction draft requires.

 

I look forward to your feedback

I think you should have a mock draft with it and see if you guys like it then maybe do it with the real draft

It's an interesting concept, but the draft would leave most people feeling...unsatisfied.

It's an interesting idea but the whole point of the auction is the continuous bidding process. All this does is it balances the playing field in an attempt to help those who are less knowledgeable about the value of players.
