Fantasy Auction Values

Fifth Edition

by Mike Gianella


Last weekend, Tout Wars held their AL, NL, and mixed-league auctions. This was the final series of expert league auctions this year, and offered yet another set of price points to contemplate before we all head off to our own home league auctions this coming weekend. Listed below are the significant adjustments I made based on the prices in the Tout Wars auctions in the AL and NL-only formats.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Keep in mind that the goal isn’t simply to mirror LABR/Tout prices. We all have our own preferences, and if all I was doing with this exercise were copying expert league prices it wouldn’t be very useful. However, Encarnacion, Kipnis, and Rodney are all examples of players who I was off base on compared to the expert market. Rodney should still be an easy get at $14, and Encarnacion and Kipnis are still likely to go for well over $30 (and past my new recommended bid limit).

Other Adjustments

Yu Darvish $26 (previous bid $29)
I’m not alarmed by Darvish’s neck injury, but it wouldn’t surprise me if he misses 2-3 starts.

Jose Reyes $25 (previous bid $27)
The hamstring isn’t something I’m panicking about, but the new bid expresses an appropriate amount of concern.
