FAAB Bids

Mods, adjust if too AC.

Thought it would be helpful to start this thread for us FAAB gents. This is assuming $100 season long budget. 0.5 PPR 12 team league.

Lots of decent names here in week 1. But for me, not a stand out name that I'd bid a healthy amount on. My approach for week 1 is to bid conservatively on a few names and hold budget until mid season until someone pops. Lots of FF owners tend to overreact after week 1 and overbid and rage drop. That said, here's my short list for week 1, in priority order. Chances are I won't win any of them but heck, gotta try.

  • Khalil Herbert $4
  • Jaylen Warren $4
  • Curtis Samuel $3
  • Jahan Dotson $2
  • Taysom Hill $1
  • Rex Burkhead $1
  • Dontrell Hilliard $1
  • Tyler Higbee $1
  • Koo $0
  • Joseph $0
  • York $0
  • LAR D $0 (ATL, at ARI, at SF, DAL, CAR, bye, SF)
  • CIN D $0 (at DAL, at NYJ, MIA, at BAL, at NO, ATL, at CLE, CAR)
  • PIT D $0 (NE, at CLE, NYJ, at BUF, TB, at MIA, at PHI)

Dudes I passed on:

  • Peoples Jones
  • Kyle Phillips
  • Greg Dortch
  • Logan Thomas
  • Gerald Everett (want him but have Justin Herbert and Ekler; too many LAC)

Bids all depend on need and risk. Those who bid high (like myself) last year with Eli Mitchell probably reaped the rewards all season long.

Question is, who's that player this year???

Agree 100. Bids totally depend on needs. My bids represent that.

Perspective: Dude I'm playing this week lost Dak, Eli Mitchell,  Keenan, Godwin

It's my first time playing FAAB, what is an appropriate amount to bid for Samuel? I have a hole at WR2 and flex so he'd be a plug and play. It's my leagues first time with FAAB as well so any insight into how new FAAB players tend to bid would be appreciated 

FAAB just really depends on your need

Don't completely agree with this. If you see someone you think is a long term add you go get him. Even if it creates redundancies. Worst case scenario it will put you in a position of strength and you can make trades to address bigger needs. 

Full disclosure, I don't see any absolutely must adds this week. I'd let everyone else waste their FAB on Wilson.

It’s like poker. There’s no wrong strategy so long as you get what you want.

Personally, I don’t agree with casting a wide net & putting in small bids on a large group of players. I target players that I think will continue to perform & bid aggressively. I don’t get hung up on overbidding against my league mates. Most of them will sit on their FAAB waiting for a perfect situation that never comes.

I always end my bid in 9's and it has worked well for me.   My philosophy is if I like a guy a $20 why not bid $29.   It has won me players many times this way over teams bidding a few bucks under me, $27 for example (which for some reason I see a lor)

I feel like Samuel is $29 pick in $150 to $200 faab leagues.   He has a very real chance to get 50 carries imo

I'm passing on Samuel because he can't stay healthy unfortunately.

Other league members feel the same way so the bid will be low.

In other leagues he will be in the 16-22 range

Mine you can prob get him for 6-10

Total FAAB is 100*

Someone dropped Schultz in my league after the Dak injury. I have Njoku and want to bid on Schultz. I know I want him. I hoping 20 does it. Does that seem like a good bid?

What did you end up bidding? I would have said $20 is way too high IMO.
