Well done!

One question that I still don't really get. When would you ever "Bypass primary bid..."? Why wouldn't you just re-order? Isn't it doing the same thing?

The scenario where it would make a difference in his example is this.
Say I have bids for:
$15 C.Newton {primary}
$22 J.Allen {contingent}

And the other teams in the league have these bids:
Team A - $20 bid for J.Allen
Team B - $17 bid for C.Newton

If the bypass primary box is not checked.
- J.Allen is won by Team A since he's the highest primary bid ($20) and nobody else's primary bid can beat him since my bid group still has C.Newton as a primary bid that hasn't been evaluated yet.
- C.Newton is won by Team B
- I get nobody

If the bypass primary box is checked.
- J.Allen is won for $22 by me since it evaluates all my primary and contingent bids
- C.Newton is won by Team B

Another example, the other bids are:
Team A - $13 bid for J.Allen
Team B - $13 bid for C.Newton
In this example I would get C.Newton for $15 regardless of if I have the bypass primary box checked.

So to answer your question, I might setup my bids as above and check the bypass primary box if I really want C.Newton but I don't want to spend more than $15 on him. But I have to win a QB this week because mine is on bye, so I load up the contingent bids with other QBs and perhaps overpay for one of them to guarantee I get at least one of them.
