Limitations of an Auto-Pick Auction Draft
This article explains why choosing to participate in an Auto-Pick Auction Draft may not result in your optimal team.
Please note the auction draft format is specifically designed for live drafts. The Auto-Pick functionality was only added to ensure drafts are completed at their scheduled times.
The draft strategy involved in auction formats is not auto-pick friendly, as the system must include limits on what it allows the system to bid for each player.
While a customer may select their own maximum bid values for players by editing their pre-rankings, this results in a hard bid limit, and it is very difficult for any autopick team to obtain top quality players, as managers who are drafting live will typically outbid the hard maximum that is in place.
