I am looking through WW to see if I should pick up anyone vs who I have. How are the power rankings for each player/position determined and how best to use the information for my roster?

what i do is add him to your lineup and see when and or if he starts over your other playerIf he adds value do it otherwise if your not going to use him forget it good luck.I go to week 10 to week 16 drop whoever is not playing

The way I've always done it (quicker but less detail on which player's are starting and I believe it rounds the numbers) is to use the TA and add the player to my roster for the weeks our league runs. It'll show any weeks that are helped by adding that player to your starting roster (of course, using the current data/projections) and overall bench value projected for the remainder of your season.

One thing to note is if your lineup includes a flex position. The Starter values may show as a gain at that position and a negative at another flex position for that week. The net gain is what you'd look at for making your decision; it being the gain of starting the new addition minus taking out a player at another flex position out of your starting lineup.

Ie. If adding a RB, he may be projected to score 20 pts in wk10 while previously one of your WRs was projected to start and score 18 pts in wk10. It'll show a gain of 20 pts for the added/new RB and a loss of 18 pts for the WR sent to the bench. So your net gain to your starting lineup score that week is projected to be 2pts. And so on for any other weeks he may considered a starter...

Hope that helps - and anyone correct me if I've been doing this incorrectly all this time (d'oh)!
