It has all the stat categories that you describe, except for singles. You can get a pretty good idea of value from it.

For instance, say the average 1B in your league (assuming your league is 5x5 in this case) hit .275, 25 HR, 80 R, 80 RBI, 5 SB. Now, you have 2 first basemen - One hits .290, 20 HR, 90 R, 75 RBI, 10 SB, and the other hits .250, 40 HR, 80 R, 100 RBI, 0 SB. You'd then divide by the amount of categories (in this case 5).
For these players, the formula would be:
Player 1 - ((.290/.275)+(20/25)+(90/80)+(75/80)+(10/5)), all divided by 5.
Player 2 - ((.250/.275)+(40/25)+(80/80)+(100/80)+(0/5)), all divided by 5.
Now this has obvious flaws, but it's a quick and dirty method to give you an idea where your players stand. You'll also have to take into account your team needs and such.
(Player 1 is more valuable according to that system, FWIW.)
