The best auction draft cheat sheet and fantasy tools start with the best auction values. CeeDee Lamb leads Draft Sharks' 2024 auction values.


The Draft Sharks Draft War Room’s dynamic features make it the best auction draft cheat sheet on the market.

Static cheat sheets are outdated the second they are published and cannot account for the fluctuations of players' values during any draft.

This live-syncing draft tool will be your draft-day cheat code.

Nearly all fantasy football sites offer an Auction Draft board with static bid suggestions.

Even though everyone knows that a fantasy draft is anything but static – especially an auction draft.

The Draft War Room offers you something completely different. “Next level” stuff.


It adapts throughout the auction draft, calculating:

  • current team needs
  • positional scarcity
  • remaining budgets
  • and remaining players.

Then the Draft War Room gives you the optimal bid for every player. 


In real-time.

So you know when you’re getting value. Or when you should avoid overpaying.


The dynamic fantasy football auction values in the Draft Sharks Draft War Room will boost your fantasy football draft.

Powerful Auction Tools That Simply Work

A fantasy football auction gives you a lot to think about. We’re here to simplify your process.

Live Sync Powers Your Draft

The Draft War Room can create this “dynamic fantasy football auction draft board” because it live-syncs with your fantasy football league.

That sync automatically pulls in scoring and lineup settings to give you customized fantasy football rankings for your draft – while you draft!

As you draft, your synced Draft War Room will automatically update as players are selected, monitoring 17 crucial in-draft indicators and delivering top-pick recommendations for every turn.

What are those 17 indicators?

  • league scoring
  • positional value
  • 3D Projections
  • setting the baseline
  • real-time team needs
  • opponent team needs
  • changing positional scarcity
  • injury risk
  • breakout potential
  • correlated ADP
  • bye conflicts
  • flex options
  • bench depth
  • Trust Factor
  • personalized projection adjustments
  • positional tier
  • strength of schedule

Dynamic Value Updates

You can find our basic fantasy football auction values on the site at any time. But your most useful set of auction values resides in that Draft War Room.

That sync mentioned above sets player values according to:

  • your league's scoring and roster settings
  • your league's budget
  • and our award-winning projections

But it doesn't stop there.

As you draft, those auction values will update according to:

  • your roster
  • your remaining funds
  • who's still available
  • and how much your league has left to spend

It's like a cheat code for your auction draft!

Auction Mock Draft Gets You Ready

Preparation is key -- especially for the rigors of an auction draft.

New for 2024, you can run an auction mock draft directly from your synced team.

That means your mock draft will follow the EXACT same rules and settings as your league draft. And you can mock as many times as you want.

Trial different strategies and picks. See what works (or doesn't). And make sure you're prepared for the real thing!

With the Draft War Room Auction Draft Cheat Sheet, you get access to all our In-Season Tools

This trinity of powerful but simple tools will allow you to hit those title-winning in-season moves.

Team Guide

Your Team Intel page displays your entire roster and uses our exclusive 3D Projection system to recommend starters for your specific format.

3D Projections combine our player projections for the week, consensus projections from more than 35 other fantasy football sites, and our “ceiling” and “floor” estimates for that player that week.

Those 3D projections power our automatic start/sit recommendations on the Team Intel page.

You’ll also quickly see who has a potential injury problem for the week.

Free Agent Finder

You’ll find a fresh Free Agent Focus on every week, with recommendations sent to your inbox even earlier (Sunday night) if you’re on our email list.

But those articles can’t possibly know your specific league. Fortunately, the Free Agent Finder does.

That sync you used to create your Draft War Room sticks with you all season.

The Free Agent Finder uses that connection to see who’s available in your league, compare those players with your current roster, and give you custom recommendations.

But what if you’re trying to look ahead for a bye-week filler or a streaming defense? No problem. You can simply sort by next week’s projections and get a jump on your league mates. 

Are you looking even longer term? Just sort by our Rest of Season projections instead. And we’ve even got modified versions of both options.

Trade Navigator

Sometimes you need more than the waiver wire can provide. You need to work a trade with another team in your league. And the Trade Navigator is designed to streamline your process and maximize your return.

There are two parts:

First, the Trade Partner Finder lets you select the position you need to fill. Then it scans your league in seconds to find the best trade partner.

Trade Navigator

Once you’ve found the ideal trade partner, it’s time for the Trade Analyzer. Pull up the other team’s roster from a dropdown list or by searching for a specific player you want.

Select the players you want to include on each side, and the Trade Analyzer will tell you what you’d be gaining or losing in the deal – both by that week’s projections and our Rest of Season projections.
