In the 4th league it might help a tiny bit. It just depends on your league setup. As for Medlen's value in general, this is just typical rabid upside seekers driving a players value way over where it should be. You have a 15% chance that he is worth this draft slot and then most of the time he is a bust.
Nailed it, I just took a look at mock draft central WOW?!? Medlen is currently being drafted as SP #13. Pitchers going immediately AFTER Medlen are Gio (6 picks later), Greinke (10 pks), Dickey (11) Sale (13) Doc (15) CC (20) Scherzer (24) Cueto (30) Zimmermann (35) Gallardo (40). I think I'd take all those guys before Medlen. That and there are high upside guys like Moore Aroldis Latos Samadzija going 5 to 7 rounds after Medlen if you feel the need to chase upside.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
