Nope. The PFM doesn't take into account the average draft position so you would end up taking guys way way earlier than you would need to. For example, PECOTA thinks Milledge is 8th round value (or better). If you took him in the 8th round, you'd be missing out on someone who was perceived to have value in the eighth round, and still be able to take Milledge in Round 18-20. That's why ADP is so crucial in drafting. It's more about when you can obtain value that obtaining the value.
Here's a fairly decent example of what you should be doing.

Does anyone use the PFM, with inflation, during their auction. I can see where that would be a great benefit based on who has been taken, the $$$ spent, position scarcity, playing time, etc. I've used similar programs in football and basketball.
Thoughts? Experiences? Recommendations?
Great site. The Forums are tremendous!

I usually average out PECOTA and Forecaster with a some of my own thoughts and that gives me a good cheat sheet that balances out PECOTA's craziness with Shandler's craziness and I get the players I want above their ADP but not too far above. It's not scientific but I like how it's worked.
