Just finished representing Rotowire in the SOFA Experts Auction league. The league is a 12 team, $200 cap, PPR (point per reception) league, with nine starters (1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 DEF, 1 K) and nine bench spots.
We used FantasyAuctioneer.com to run the auction, a site I *highly* recommend if you need an online venue for your auction.
Here's the team I walked away with.
QB: Rivers, SD $7; Cutler, Den $4; Schaub, Hou $2; RB: Westbrook, Phi $49; Norwood, Atl $22; DeAngelo Williams, Car $12; Kevin Jones, Det $10; WR: Owens, Dal $33; Walker, Den $24; Evans, Buf $22; Devery Henderson, NO $3; Brandon Jones, Ten $3; Jacoby Jones, Hou $1; TE: LJ Smith, Phi $3; Greg Olsen, Chi $2; DEF: Dallas $1; K: Graham, Cin $1; Josh Brown, Sea $1
Obviously I'm a little thin at RB, and will probably have to address that on waivers. I honestly wasn't excited by any of the RBs going in the $3 range at the end of the auction though (although I could've picked up an unsexy Anthony Thomas or the like instead of, say, Brandon Jones), and with two of my starting WRs having the same bye week I wanted to get some solid depth there. Smith and Graham also have the same bye, so I couldn't do my usual "carry one backup TE/K/DEF at a time" trick.
Some other interesting prices:
Top QBs: Peyton $32, Brees $24, Brady $23, Palmer $23, Bulger $16
Top RBs: Tomlinson $85, Addai $74, Gore $71, Reggie Bush $70, Steven Jackson $67, Larry Johnson $57
Top WRs: Chad Johnson $38, Holt $37, Steve Smith $37, Owens $33, Harrison $32, Wayne $31
Bears defense went for $9; Ravens for $7; Patriots for $6; no one else for more than $2
Gates went for $27; next-most expensive TE was Winslow at $11
Rookies: Lynch $27 vs. Peterson $25; Calvin Johnson went for $17
