It's actually more of a factor than you think. Tim Tebow went #2 overall in the draft this year, and he's currently the #17 ranked QB. After losing Percy Harvin and Louis Murphy to the NFL, a drop-off should have been expected.

Easy to say now, but it was not expected by the "experts". Look around the CFF preseason rankings and Tebow was anywhere from 2-6 at QB. CFFI and Athlon had him 3 and 2 respectively

The James Brothers have been awesome for my team this year I think both are good enough to have solid seasons next year even with an inexperianced QB
I don't think Jacquizz will have any sort of down slide, which is why I didn't mention him. If anything, he'll get a lot more touches in the passing game with screens and short check downs while Katz or Lalich are really getting a feel for the system. Riley's pro system has been brutal on quarterbacks their first year (see Derek Anderson, Matt Moore, Lyle Moevao and Sean Canfield). That being the case, I can definitely see the down field production dropping off a bit early in the season, which will lower James' numbers significantly.

At least you have WR Donario Alexander. I had him on my roster for a bit earlier this season and could just kick myself for dropping him. In his last five games, dude has caught 46 passes for 791 yards and seven touchdowns.
