So the maximum salary you could pick in round 1 of the reverse salary draft is about 4.3 million? (110mil/25 = $4.4mil per slot). So if I wanted to, I could draft 25 guys right around 4.4 million? Provided they went in the right order?
Yes, in theory... if you can find 25 guys that have a salary in that small range. During the draft updates, I will probably include a formula-based "Max Salary" calculation, to make sure people don't overspend.
Assuming 100K increase per pick, something like this...
Max Salary for next pick = [($110M - current salary) / (Picks left)] - [(Picks Left - 1) * $50K]
Example, My team salary is $80M with 4 picks left....
Max Salary on Next pick = [($110M - $80M) / (4)] - [3 * $50K] = $7.35M
This assumes your next 4 picks would be in the range of $7.35M, $7.45M, $7.55M, $7.65M
