Just wanted to point out that I autodrafted my team (Bull City Bombers- RCL #22) and I'm currently 9th in the master standings. So it is possible to do well with an autodrafted team. That being said, I currently have only 3 of my original hitters from the draft on my roster right now. Took a lot of FA trolling and a couple of trades.

Yeah, don't think it's impossible in a 12 team league to do that... Must have some nice free agent pickups... I'm guessing Trout...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Well done! Most teams have plenty of turnover, so yes, an autodrafted team does not automatically mean you're out of it. Your hitting was really tested though, with you getting so many pitchers early.

Yeah, Trout pretty much made up for the draft for me. Also picked up Carlos Gomez and traded for Nelson Cruz.

But having Trout and Cabrera carried my team for sure

Wow, Jay Bay... Goes to show you how much or how little drafting can mean...

Yeah, and look at the pick before that. Allen Craig was one of the 3 that I kept all year.
