    Looking for some advice for my upcoming rookie draft, I have picks 4, 6, 7, and 14.

    It’s a 14 team league 10 players scoring 6 reserves 2 injury reserves and 2 minor spots.

    Scoring

    Assists 1.5
    Blocks 3.0
    Field goals missed -0.5
    Free throws misses -0.5
    2 pointers scored 2.0
    3 pointers made 3.0
    Rebounds 1.2
    Steals 3.0
    Turnovers -1.0

    I have players in mind but looking for some valuable opinions from fantasy players. Thanks in advance.

    pick4 – I have pick 4 in Hoop Ball Dynasty League 2 and I’m locked into Darius Garland. Of course if Zion, Ja, or RJ fall to 4 they would be automatic. I think you also have to take a look at Jarrett Culver here too, but I got Garland over Culver.

    pick6/7 – if Hunter is still on the board I think you’d have to grab him. I’d also probably take Jaxson Hayes, specially if you need a big center

    pick14 – I love Brandon Clarke or NAW (N.Alexander-Walker) here. You could also take a look at Tyler Herro

    Excellent feedback guys much appreciated keep up the good work especially the pods ?

    Side question how would you put a value on players in an auction draft?

    I love auction drafts! The very first draft I was in was an auction draft. It is completely a different ranking and strategy.
    It’s all about getting value when the other owners fill in positions and your left to get a steal.
    As far as ranking, you have to create a list of targets that you are willing to pay for and then go with the flow from there. It is a whole different world from regular drafts.
    Good luck!

    We are using the salary cap of £130,000,000 as our budget, minimum bids of £500,000 to pick 18 players, is there any sort of % breakdown for salaries to the top players etc or just see how it plays out? Each team picking 2 players for everyone to bid on thinking of picking two players I don’t want but have some hype to get some money off the board and see how it’s playing out!

    Coach, couldnt agree more w/auction draft. Love the dynamic and the key is to hunt value.

    Good idea picking guys you dont want with hype to get big money out of peoples pockets.
