You Be the Commish is your chance to make a ruling on an exciting rules conundrum.
Today’s issue comes from Fantasy Football Today:
You are commissioner in an online auction, $200 budget. Someone nominated David Johnson for $1. Immediately, another owner bids $50, and someone ups it to $51. Just then, it is revealed that this is not David Johnson, electric RB for the Cardinals, but David Johnson, ho-hum Steelers tight end. Obviously, the $51 bidder thought he was bidding on the good DJ. Nobody else bids, and the lousy DJ goes to the $51 bidder, who immediately complains that the bid should not stand.
