Fantasy Football Week 15 Projection: Tim Tebow Keeps Proving His Doubters Wrong

Tim Tebow will look to exploit a weak New England Patriots pass defense, rewarding the Denver Broncos and his fantasy owners.

Eight games into Tim Tebow's tenure as the Denver Broncos starting quarterback in 2011, his fantasy owners know they need to be patient to see the second-year quarterback put fantasy points on the board. While there might be cursing and frustration during the first three quarters, the fourth quarter usually provides unbounded joy.

Last Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears was his weakest since the loss to the Detroit Lions at the end of October. His 236 passing yards were a season high, but an interception and fumble brought down his fantasy points (ESPN standard) to 13 points.

This week he'll get a chance to throw against the New England Patriots' league worst pass defense. But right now, numberFire isn't predicting a huge day for Tebow. The projection right now is 10-of-23 for 143 yards, a touchdown pass and an interception. He's also predicted for 45 rushing yards, but with each week we see Tebow throwing more since he is progressing as a passer. He's not the one-dimensional fantasy player originally predicted when he took over as the starter.
