If it's an auction, you'll have to figure out your own method for dollar values (I'll briefly describe that at the end), but if it's a draft, just grab the projections from a site like RotoTimes and put them into Excel format. You can use simple formulas to calculate total points for each player. Give an overall ranking for each player. Tally up the average points for each position, or figure out average rank, and divide normal rank by the average points/rank... sort by that number, and rank again.

If it's an auction, do this: Figure out the best $1 player at each position. Figure out how many pts/game (or whatever your scoring period is) the guy is likely to score. Say it's 1/game. The top guy gets you (random number, here) 6/game. So, the top guy is worth 5 pts/game. Figure out those point values for all the players worth more than $1. Divide the total amount of money the league has to spend by the points-above-minimum total, and that's how much each point is worth. So, if that point is worth, say, $5, then your 5/game guy is worth $30.

Simple, but it works.
