An auction draft is a drafting system that is available for an NFL Fantasy Football game. The auction draft functions similarly to a regular auction: each team nominates a player to be auctioned before placing bids. The highest bidder is then awarded the player to his Fantasy Football roster.
In the auction draft, each player is assigned a value and each team has a budget. Each team must be able to fill its roster with players without going over the pre-set budget. The budget that is available to each team can be customized when playing a custom-made league. Another draft mode available in Fantasy Football is the snake draft.
