So I'm in one of those "weird" vote off leagues and have a questions about how the $5 discount will be applied to my restricted FA during the auction. For reference, my RFA is Jackie Bradley ($4) and I'll have 3 open roster spots and $20 going into the draft.
1) If I get Jackie for $4, does the $5 come off my total budget (Jackie is essentially -$1) or do I just get a $1 Jackie this year?
2) Can I bid up to $23 for Jackie or am I capped at $18 with the $5 being applied after the draft is over?
2a) If I get Jackie for $18 during the draft, will the $5 discount be applied right then and there so I have $7 to spend on the remaining 2 roster spots?
Hope this all makes sense. Thank you for any input.

PS - I can't believe my $3 Gary Sanchez, $4 Trevor Story, or $5 Trea Turner was not voted off over Bradley...
