Value of Tebow

Any suggestions on where Tebow fits in if he becomes the starter. I am in a two QB 10 person league so any starting QB is valuable. I have Newton, McCoy, Dalton and Young. I would have to drop a QB to pick up Tebow and do not know if I should and if I should would you drop Dalton or Young. I am likely giving away the number 2 waiver order to get him as well.

Dropping Young for Tebow is a gimme. Insofar as projecting Tebow, Roto said something along the lines of 80% of Cam Newton. I'll leave the accuracy of that statement to some of the more mathematically gifted guys around here.

There's a Tebow entry in Playing Time-QB Battles tab. Adjust it to 11 games by multiplying by 11/16 (or 12 games to compare to Orton midseason projection). Orton's per game stats in his midseason projection are a bit higher than his initial projections (+5% pass yards/game, +20% pass TDs/INTs), so I might give a similar boost to Tebow's passing stats as well.
