It's only a rough estimate based entirely on draft position, which isn't the only (and probably not the best) way to value players. I would suggest also running your league specifics into last player picked and using those values as a guide as well.
In the end though, auction values may be quite different, especially if participants overbid on superstars. I'd be curious about the team you were able to get. Although you may not have a superstar, perhaps your roster is more balanced than others because you were able to draft at or below market value.
My highest payed player ended up being Morneau. At that point, i felt like i should have maybe overpayed a little bit on a true stud, because i realized i was gonna have a ton of money left to spend on pitching. So my team was all upside guys and solid pitchers. Morneau $26, Rios $24, Bruce $24, Prado $17, Stubbs $14, Chris Young $11, Ellsbury $14, Granderson $8, Stephen Drew $8, Montero $5, Sandoval $8. My staff consisted of Weaver $17, Liriano $15, Haren $17, Marcum $8, Morrow $7, B. Anderson $11, Putz $5, Bailey $8.
