for instance in your league it take 10 homers to gain 1 point in the homers cat. So by just having A-rod on your team all year he would give you 4.7 points higher in the homer cat than not having him. Like I said before there are many more factors, however this is a simple way of explaining it to you. Let me break downyour units first.
It takes 10 homers to gain 1 point in the HR cat.
It takes .0017 to increase 1 point in the AVG ct.(harder to predict)
It take 21 Rbi to gain 1 point in your runs cat.
It takes 22 runs to gain 1 point in the rbi cat.
It takes 12 sb to gain 1 point in the sb cat
Now lets see what A-Rod is really worth:
HR is worth 4.7 points
AVG cant be determined because its the team average. Cumulative is tougher to use.
RBI is worth 5.6
Runs is worth 5.6
SB is 1.6
If you add this up then A-ROD is valued at 17.5 roto points in your league. The key is to do this for all your players to get a ranking. Once you get a ranking you can see how a player helps or hurts you team if he is plugged in. They can also have negative points per cat. Take a guy like Pierre who hits no homers. He may have a negative point total. So if you have a spreadsheet you can determine th league average and base it on this.

Mike Lowell and Morgan Ensberg tied in value Lowell is probably going to be the 2nd or 3rd best 3B behind A-Rod and maybe Rolen. Ensberg is probably 9th or 10th best 3B.
Making rankings that are based on replacement cost, position scarcity, batting trends, 3 year averages, age, etc are way too complicated for any normal person to compute. I'll leave that up to Xeifrank and Hootie. If somebody found a proven formula to come up with dollar values, I'd be interested in seeing it. Xeifrank, got anything like that? Although personally I'm pretty convinced that no formula can't calculate a player's worth. There are way too many factors, and I doubt anybody has the amount of time it would take to come up with and consider them all.
