FPOB Auction

I'm not sure if I messed up some settings, but after entering my league info, saving settings and generating the KUBIAK, several players have a "FPOB Auction" value of null, causing them to be listed as a $1.00 auction value. This happened to around 45 players.

Likewise. Just drag the formula down the rest of the column.

I have the same problem, and filling down the formula did not solve it.

First 5 players listed at $1 (with my league's scoring settings).

Aaron Rodgers
C.J. Spiller
Wes Welker
Denarius Moore
Vernon Davis

yes. the players who get the $1 value tends to jump around each time I generate KUBIAK again.

Yeah, I've got the same issue. Never happened to me in previous KUBIAKs.

Cool, thanks again. Just noticed this issue on my print-out as well.

I can't see any auction values on my Kubiak.

One of the settings on the Scoring tab toggles the auction values on/off. Do you just need to turn that on?

This error should be fixed in the newly uploaded update.

Now I'm starting to get negative values from some players.

Do you have particularly funky league settings? Or doing something weird with RB baseline method?

That was the problem. My Waiver Adjustment was set to 2. Thanks.

When I change my league settings to replace the QB passing yards scoring from "1 Point for Every 20 Yards" to "1 Point for Every 25 Yards" I get an Excel exclamation point error that says "The formula in this cell differs from the formulas in this area of the spreadsheet."

I then generate a Kubiak report which looks okay. Just wondering if that error message in the Settings tab is affecting the accuracy of the numbers in my report.

Also, on an unrelated note, WR Stevie Johnson's Yahoo! rankings seem to be incorrect. He's listed as 803rd overall. His name is listed as Steve Johnson, so it could be that there's another player in the league with that name and that's what's causing the issue.
