I would and I do. When passing TDs are worth the same as rushing/receiving TDs, that makes the QB more valuable than the RB/WR position. A star QB is going to throw 30+ TDs on the year. A star RB may get 15 TDs on the year. My draft strategy in my 6-pt TD league is to grab the top RB I can in the first, top-WR I can in the 2nd, and then look to grab Manning or Brady if still available in the 3rd. If not, then I target Rodgers in the 4th or 5th (I gotta do more mocks to see where these guys are actually going, but you get the idea).
The other benefit to this is that in my $$ league, weekly high score is awarded $25. Having a consistent, sure-fire, stud at those 3 positions goes very far towards ensuring your competitive for that prize each week. And a QB who can regularly throw 2TDs each week and often throw 3 TDs? That's money! RBs and WRs can't compete with that.
