That's pretty much all you need to know after you ahve a set of reliable projections.
I love last player picked's tool, the only problem I have with them is that I have to tweak their positional value. For instance on a standard Yahoo league they run an $18 base for Catchers and $9 for 1B. There is definitely a positional difference, but not quite that large.
Yeah manual tweaks are sometimes needed. Not so much because the math is wrong, but because real life drafts/auctions don't follow true value, especially with oddities like closers and catchers. I also weight the categories differently which isn't possible with LPP. And for Yahoo leagues where the reserve players play a significant role, they need to be included, either as additional UTIL spots, or by adding IF and OF spots. It'll get you 99% of the way there, though, and for most people it's a big improvement on how they used to do rankings/dollar values.
