In the last post, I shared my rankings and how they were derived. Great, but the question remains, what is the best team money can buy in an auction draft?
Excel and Open Office come with a Solver tool, it’s capable of linear optimization, or maximizing a value Y with a budget constraint X.
Below is a list of each player, their average cost, their estimated value, and how many of each position I want/need.
Below is how I set up solver
This gave a team that is much better than a lot of teams drafted. If you draft against a completely average set of opponents, consider yourself lucky. Enjoy.
