Absolutely! Some players like to use this strategy, which is to intentionally not bid on the smaller contracts (or purposefully bid too high), allowing other players to win the smaller contracts and use up their bid tokens. Doing this may put you in a position where you could be the only player with enough tokens to bid on one of the larger contracts. It's a great way to advance yourself on the earnings tracker and make lots of cash to stay in the game or even take the lead.

However, this strategy is somewhat risky for a couple of reasons: 1) The luck of the die roll may leave you waiting too long to get into the game. While you are sitting there waiting to bid on a large contract, other players will continue to earn money from their smaller contracts and may be able to buy their next lawn mower, and receive more bid tokens. 2) If you are able to pull it off (winning a maximum bid), it paints a huge target on your back to be booted from the contract as soon as possible, and other players tend to gang up on you for the rest of the game.
