PTS league - rankings? draft position?

I am torn - I like Grey's insight but I am using the pts league spreadsheet that Mahoney put out. However, my pts league has a very different settings than Mahoney's so the analysis is a little different. But his basic analysis is it is ok to draft buster posey high because his disparity in pts with the 2nd catcher is so much higher than say a comparable 1st basemen to the next 1st baseman. plus he advocates drafting the top 10 pitchers early. However, as grey indicates. I can find a lower tier pitcher that will probably have the same amount of K's and with a little luck have the same amount of W's as some of those top pitchers and be fine. Also, should I just draft based on overall pts and not position scarcity? I have a U slot so drafting something like Stanton, Bautistia, A Gordon, Dozier, E longoria and then a C hamels make sense doesn't it if those 1st 5 have the most pts based on my rankings on when I draft right? just don't feel comfortable with the Mahoney FVARs theory. Anybody else in a pts league care to discuss?

I have some questions about your hitting -- Braun, Zobrist, Butler, Hill... Team looks competitive on pitching
