These are the results from the Huddle Fantasy Football Expert League Auction with 12 teams. The auction was held on August 19. Use these results to learn how players are being valued and how the resulting teams were built. Each team had a salary cap of $200 for a roster of 18 players.
This is an actual league that is played out and starts the standard line-up of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, Flex (RB, WR or TE), PK and DEF. Scoring is one point per ten yards rushed or received and one point per 20 yards passing. All touchdowns are six points except four points per passing score. One point per reception is used. Standard scoring for both defenses and kickers.
A fantasy auction can be approached in many ways with differing results. Some teams spent almost all of their cash on just four or five elite players and then tried to fill out their team with $1 scrubs. Others held back and didn’t buy into the most expensive players. They went for the strategy of a deep team with multiple options for starters in every position. The beauty of a fantasy auction is that you can buy any player you want – just not every player you want.
Notable for 2022 – Quarterbacks have never been cheaper despite their scoring advantage versus other positions. Elite running backs are the most expensive, but quickly become comparable to wide receivers. The disparity in cost between similar players is typically from paying the high price when supply becomes short in a position and yet two or more teams still need starter quality options.
