Daily $200 Fantasy Football Auction team

Fantasy Football draft season is upon us!  For those of you who are in auction leagues, or who may be considering an auction league for the first time, here's some help.  Since, in an auction league, every player is available to you, you really have to come of with a solid strategy prior to draft day.  You can't just wait to see what good player is available on your turn, you need to budget by player/position/depth, etc.  To that end, I will be posting a daily team, budgeted differently every day.  Here are the rules:  15 man team, with 9 starting positions:  QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR/RB, TE, DEF, K.  You will have a $200 budget, and values listed are preseason values listed on ESPN.  Here we go, Team 1:

Today's team goes for balanced value at the 5 starting skill positions, with a top 5 TE, and Top 2 DEF.  Kicker will always be $1, so rule is take best $1 Kicker you can (Never pay more than $1 for a Kicker)

QB     Joe Flacco     $12
RB     Ryan Grant     $42
RB     Mendenhall     $36
RB     Shonn Greene $35
WR    Boldin             $22
WR    D. Jackson      $28
TE     V. Davis          $16
DEF   Jets                 $5
K       Prater              $1

BN     Maroney         $3
BN     Slaton             $6
BN     Bradshaw       $2
BN     K. Walter       $1
BN      Stafford          $1
BN     Berrian            $1

Of course, these values will change greatly from league to league, but this gives an idea of the type of team you can put together.

  1. DeSean Jackson is probably the best bargain you have on here. Flaco would be the next best value, IMHO. Overpaid for Grant and Jets D.
