The Tout Mixed Draft ran last night. Peter was drafting 10'th, yours truly in the 14'th slot. I don't think stolen bases will be a problem for either one of us. https://draft.shgn.com/nfc/public/dp/473/grid

I think it it is still too early to worry about unsigned players in home "only" leagues.  I know last year Arietta and Greg Holland were in the minors the first week of the season because they didn't sign until March, and thus were relegated in my leagues to reserves (or, in the one with no reserves, free agent bids upon promotion).  But I don't believe any impact batter was.  Moustakas I think was the last to sign, around Mar. 10, and was ready to go with a two and half weeks ST.

Seems fair. I think letting the market decide is the best thing. There is risk. There is reward. Let the market sort that out.

Here's what I just proposed for my home league to handle the scenario where players like Harper and/or Machado are still unsigned (or still not on active NL roster) on our Auction/Draft Day ...

                On Draft Day, if you have an Unsigned Free Agent on your roster at a salary of 16 or more, then he goes into the auction on your active roster  

                Any Unsigned Free Agents that are not already on an roto roster going into the auction can be bid upon, with a minimum bid of 16.

The point of the "16" is ... if a player isn't worth 16, then it's OK for him to go in the Reserve Draft (where he will get a salary of 15 if taken in the first round).

We could use a player page for Ryan Brasier.

The CBS only league auctions should be challenging if Harper, Machado, et al. remain unsigned then.
