Doing my first auction style league this year. Can anyone recommend a site with what they feel is a good cheat sheet?

I've always found that cheat sheets aren't that helpful for auction drafts. You need to simply do enough mock drafts so you get a good feel of how much players that you like are worth. Then you nominate players you don't like and hope it eats up other people's salaries so you can get a deal on the players you want.

So do you use a standard cheat sheet and adjust accordingly as the board shakes out?

If it's on one of the major sites I always use the same sheet as my competition so I know what they are looking at. People usually spend to a little above the ADP early in the draft, and less later on.

Other than that I've got a few other tips. Make sure to save a few extra bucks so you can outbid others for players you want later on. Don't be that guy that can only bid a few dollars late in the draft and can only hope no one outbids him on the players he nominates. Not saying you should sit out all the studs and save money, but make sure you save a little bit so you can get guys you like throughout the draft.

I listen to a lot of podcasts and fantasy radio and most experts suggest some sort of tiered cheatsheet. What you see a lot of times is people overspend to get that last guy in a tier. For example in a recent draft I was in someone paid $75 while Antonio Brown went for $65 a few minutes earlier.
