Yes we do. It's still predictive. The correlation has shown that through research. It's just not quite as much a tight standard error as non-knuckleball pitchers.
It's akin to comparing batting average to on-base percentage when stacking up against run scoring. They both correlate pretty well to run scoring. One correlates better than another, though.
