My first contracts!

Postby roygbiv » Sun Jul 07, 2013 3:39 pm

I'm having a difficult time finding any info on contract league strategies. drafting a $20,000,000 player with a two year contract I'm guessing, at times, may not be as smart as drafting an up and coming $10,000,0000 player with a 4 year contract, etc, etc. I'm looking for any basic strategy guides or suggestions. Thanks

A lot depends on league size and the actual salary cap for your league and also the format by which you bid on players. Player contract value changes based on the first two, and player acquisition strategies change based on the third. Most of the major fantasy sites will put out a draft guide that includes auction value for players, but that may or may not help you depending on how similar your league is to the 'standard' for each particular site. Values are also slightly different based on scoring type - some guys are better in Head-to-head scoring than roto, or vice versa.
