First off, you and countless others have repeatedly tried to say that AS's are not predictions, they are just an estimate of value.
In what formula would you replace Raw data with estimations when the formula still has equations to be done that need to run off the Raw data?
Any of them, since converting between raw stats and AS is dirt simple. It's trivial to calibrate a raw-stats-based equation to use AS instead.

So show your results with decimals, and don't remove the individual player stats when making the calculation. There, you're now using adjusted stats without these "inaccuracies". They're still adjusted stats, and have none the of (very small) inaccuracies you see.

Pardon? Shouldn't the criteria for replacement be better, not necessarily perfect?
