Here are CBS Sportsline's 2007 rankings with dollar values.

Not bad as a starting point.

Is there really any point following those...
It all depends on what you feel is that individual value and it depends on how the auction is going..

While CBS gives you a good starting point, you need to rework everything based on your league's scoring as well as you need to do a lot on the fly as players already taken will dictate what happens to the following players taken.

As an example, I think we all agree that LT should be the clear cut number 1, not just worth 2 more dollars. However, there will probably be at least 3 teams pushing LT's value up as they auction him off. The minute one team gets him, the other two will most likely over pay for LJ or SJax in order to guarantee a top RB on their teams. Every year it happens. And when the dust settles, LT should be the most expensive player, but there will be one or two RB's just behind him on the pay scale.

Good points. I don't think it's a case of "following" them but rather using them as a starting point for your own valuation. As the season gets closer I'm sure you'll see a lot of sites with dollar values or AAV's.

And as you mention it's important to adjust as necessary during each auction based on need, available dollars, etc.

I've only done a few auction drafts but my auction cheat sheets dont look any different than my regular draft cheatsheets. I use them as a guide to make sure i dont forget anyone and to easily see who i have ranked where. I use them as a loose guide and rarely follow them to the T.
