Tim, some people may disagree, but I do think the Average Salaries data can be helpful for a new player entering their first ever draft. Again, just like projections, do use them as gospel, but it's a good indicator of what particular players are valued at throughout leagues. One thing you can do is pull the data for whatever format you choose to play in (or all of them) and then create a column on the right that you plus up or plus down throughout the off season as you read and analyze players. For example, if the average price for Jose Bautista is $41, but you just don't believe he's worth that because he signs with SFG or is old, or whatever reason, you can tap down the value throughout the off-season, just to go with your gut. Maybe he's $36 (-$5), or $32 (-$9)...just depends on how you feel about that player.
In fact, I'll create something for everyone in @Ottoneu101 that might be helpful and post it here soon. Each season I create my own auction draft sheet too and I'll send a copy of that out as well so you can use it during your auction if you like.
