In blind auctions, you nominate and bid on players. If you submit the highest bid for a player, you win the player.
Blind auctions have a snaking nomination order that is randomly determined. If you are the first to nominate in the first round, you will be the last to nominate in the second round.
You have 15 seconds to nominate a player.
If you do not actively nominate a player, the first player in your queue is nominated on your behalf. If your queue is empty, the first player in the player list is nominated on your behalf.
You can only nominate players in unfilled positions on your team. If your team is filled, you are skipped in the nomination order.
You start with a bankroll of $100, which is the maximum amount you can spend on your five-player team.
You can submit a bid on every player that is nominated, regardless of who nominated the player. You can also pass on players you do not want on your team.
You have 15 seconds to decide whether or not to submit a bid on a player.
You must submit a bid of at least $1 on players that you nominate. If you do not actively submit a bid on a player you nominate, a $1 bid will automatically be submitted on your behalf when time expires.
You do not know the actions your opponents take on a player until the bidding period is over.
You cannot cancel or change your bid once it has been submitted.
Once 15 seconds have passed, or everyone has acted on a player (whichever comes first), the player is awarded to the person with the highest bid.
Ties are broken by who submitted the bid first.
When you set your Pre-Draft Rankings for a given sport and slate, those rankings apply to your Blind Auction nomination order.
