So I am at a crossroads of strategy. Do I lock up two studs at below market values, or get two "not-quite-studs" for nothing and have tons of money to overpay on studs? We can keep 2 players in a 10 team $500 auction draft league with standard scoring. Keepers are $10 more than what they were drafted for or what you kept them for last year. (Drafted Mccoy at 96 = costs 106 to keep this year) Here are my available players to keep: - Lesean Mccoy at $106 - Matt Forte at $103 - Le'Veon Bell at $14 - Dez Bryant at $52 - Julius Thomas at $10 For reference, Stud RB's are usually kept and those that are available go for around $120+. Stud WR's go from 80-100, with Calvin going for $135 last year.
So my quandary is that, while I absolutely want to have Lesean Mccoy and Dez on my team, I feel like it might make more sense to just keep my cheap players and try to draft them or equivalent players again. It's so hard to get accurate Auction values for keeper leagues, but using some estimates, Here's how much it would cost me in total to get the same four core players in two scenarios:
Keep McCoy and Bryant Mccoy 106 Bryant 52 Draft Le'Veon Bell for 87 Draft Julius Thomas for 65 Total = $310
Keep Julius Thomas and Le'veon Bell Bell 14 Thomas 10 Draft McCoy for 130 Draft Bryant for 95 Total = $249
So am I doing something wrong with this math or should I keep the cheapies bc it would afford me so much more money to overpay for them if I really want them?
