Yahoo Mock Auctions: How to Receive a Perfect 100 Score

I usually do Yahoo mock auctions (and auctions at several other platforms) to get a feel about how auctions could flow. I amass hundreds of mocks then use that data to create a strategy that will work at least 99% of the time.

Sometimes I get a little weary of crunching all the numbers, and I want to take a break. NO I DON’T STEP AWAY FROM MOCKING, you fools! I run a Yahoo! mock auction, and see if I can get it to award me a perfect 100/100 score.

Yeah, about that…

I’m going to need a new hobby.

So, just for fun, I thought I’d outline how I do this. It’s really just a more-specific form of Barbecue Auction Strategy.

Perfect Yahoo Mock Auctions Step 1: Spend big on RBs

I usually find spending $150 on my top three backs hits some sort of sweet spot with Yahoo mock auctions. Barbecue force of habit usually means I spend about $120 on the top two and then somewhere around $35 for the third. Sometime I’ll play around and see if three $50 backs gets the same perfect score.

Perfect Yahoo Mock Auctions Step 2: Play the Waiting Game on Everything Else

Obviously, if we have $50 left for 12 players, we’re going to have to play the waiting game. Have something else to pass the time so you don’t get itchy and big $39 for a top WR and leave yourself extremely short.

Perfect Yahoo Mock Auctions Step 3: Draft Exactly 1 Backup QB

While in real life we often do just fine getting only one QB, a backup QB greatly affects the algorithm that determines your projected finish.

That’s about it. With a little luck you should be able to get a 100 after only a few mocks. Now, I can’t guarantee a perfect score every time, I was kinda shocked I was even able to do it 3 times in a row. But for years I thought the highest score was 99/100, it was only until I started to really play around with things that I broke through to the top.

Happy Mocking!
