Maybe a dumb question - do we get to know the final amounts each player went for and how much cap space the other teams have left as we progress through the days?

Yes.

The bidding is blind, but how much they went for will be revealed (only the winning bid, obv).

I don't think I did it right, I think I bid way too low on all 6 of my guys, only really want one of them to be a starter though.

Reminder: $285 is your max amount of bid money total. Spend as much or as little of that as you would like on today's list. You cannot bid more than that even if you don't think you will win certain players.

I agree. They should get the people they bid the highest on until they can't afford the next. That's probably the fairest way to fix this problem.

In fact, this is probably how every day should work. If you only have like 15 points left and need to fill 5 slots it's going to be almost impossible to get anyone if you can't bid over 15 total points a day.

No rush for them though.

Although it is easier for me to say that looking at all of your bids.

I spent 5 dollars too many so it's not that big of a deal

The take only the highest bids until 285 isn't a bad idea either. Sorry about the mess yall

Okay well there's 2 options we can go with a resubmit, I'll let you guys vote. Keep in mind them spending MORE money doesn't mean they may have overbid on players, it means they spent more across the board. So if you want them to keep that then you're giving them more room to work with.


So the options are:

1. Slashing prices from certain players/removing bids completely from certain players until it becomes $295 (NOT adding them anywhere else)

or

2. Letting them bid with more money. (Keep in mind, that doesn't guarantee overpay!)

Up to you.
