I'm just not sure I'm seeing the "value" here, at least in how I'm interpreting this. You're picking one player at each position, but not necessarily saying that you'd like to have them all on your team, correct? I mean, if you filled out your starting roster with all of these guys for $120, you're going to be leaving a lot of money on the table at the end of the auction.
I guess I just don't look at guys from this perspective very often. Rather than looking for generic "value" out of a position, I'm looking for specific types of value based on where I am in filling out my roster, who's left on the board, and what my competitors are looking for. While auction values for players at the top and bottom of the board are generally well defined going in, players in the middle of the board (like basically all of the guys you've got listed here) are going to fluctuate wildly from auction to auction based on how they go and the owners in them.
While Soto may be a good value for you at $11, it's not like you're going to start off the auction nominating him for $8 and hoping to "steal" him when the market on catchers hasn't even been established yet. Likewise, if you've got plenty of money at the back end of a draft and you're going up against another owner for the last decent closer Axford could go for easily double what you've listed and you'd still be perfectly happy with that.
I dunno... maybe I go about auctions differently than most guys, but to me it's just way too fluid to try and target "values" at certain dollar ranges. The rosters left to be filled and the money yet to be spent makes trying to assign dollar-values to these guys next to impossible, for me at least.
