Tonight will be the 8th straight night that I've filled a live auction fantasy football league at Phenoms, and this streak is likely to continue all the way through the start of the season. I could go on and on about the benefits of auctions over drafts, like the ability to shape your team as you want, and not getting sniped by the guy picking before you, and not having to reach because you don't like anyone on the board at the current time. But you already knew that.
Phenoms Fantasy Sports has two auction fantasy football league formats: Live and Slow, which are quite different. The Live auctions rattle off one player at a time, with quick bidding, before moving to the next player. These take roughly 2.5 hours to complete. For this season, we'll still be using the live auction room at ESPN.com to conduct the auction since it's stable, smooth, and works on their iPad app as well. The Slow format takes roughly 10 days to complete, as owners can each nominate 2 new players per day. This puts 20 to 40 players on the board at any given time. Bidding is eBay proxy-style, and the 18 hour timer only resets if a new high bidder takes over a player. You have to manage your money wisely since you can't be bidding on all players at once. These are way more fun than a Slow draft where you have to wait to pick. Hop on and make bids any time of day!
