Yeah... but what was the PPG scoring difference between Rivers and the guy who finished QB7? The decision on who to keep has more to do with VALUE than overall points. What I mean by that is who is the easiest to replace through the draft... an elite RB, elite WR, or elite QB?
Put it another way... the difference between Rivers and drafting, say, Matt Schaub, is LESS than the difference between VJax and say, Percy Harvin. Your roster is better off to keep the elite WR and draft a mid-QB1 than to keep the elite QB and draft a mid-to-low WR2. Obviously, it depends on who is kept by the rest of your league... but I would guess that most, if not all, elite WRs are being kept, while there should be QBs available in that QB7-10 range.
Do as you wish... it's your roster... but keeping Rivers over VJax makes your final roster weaker IMHO.
