That's great that you established 5x5 yahoo leagues as the standard. However, the number of teams in a league makes a big difference. Also, no one answered how you can create rankings without using a spreadsheet to calculate $$ values. That's my biggest problem. If instead someone posted projections without using the player's names, could you rank them yourself? No, you'd just be making guesses but will not be accurate. For example, rank the following projected stat lines (assume the same position):

A: 600 abs, 30 homers, 100 rbis, 90 runs, .300, 0 steals

B: 600 abs, 12 homers, 60 rbis, 100 runs, .305, 15 steals

C: 600 abs, 35 homers, 110 rbis, 85 runs, .280, 3 steals

D: 600 abs, 18 homers, 85 rbis, 75 runs, .320, 10 steals

E: 600 abs, 24 homers, 95 rbis, 85 runs, .290, 7 steals

F: 600 abs, 5 homers, 55 rbis, 110 runs, .285, 50 steals

I certainly couldn't do that accurately. And this can't be ranked accurately without creating a spreadsheet for an entire league and calculating $$ values.
