Roethlisberger vs Tebow, with unusual scoring

These are my two QB options this week. Both face weak opponents and seem like good plays, but I'm not sure which is the better bet.

My league awards 6 points for both passing and rushing TDs, which deflates some of Tebow's value. However, the league also awards 1 pt/20 QB rushing yards as opposed to 1 pt/50 QB passing yards. Given this situation, I'm not sure who to play.

The yardage ratio is the same as I'm used to (10/25 = 20/50). So while QBs are devalued yardagewise versus other positions, it's a wash when comparing QBs. The TD scoring makes a difference, slightly favoring Ben as you say.

Despite that I'm still leaning Tebow. There's a lot of risk given that he's raw and just lost his WR1, but Ben hasn't exactly been dependable this season either.
