Tim Tebow Week 14 Fantasy Update: Denver Broncos QB Saves The Day, Comes Through In 4th Quarter, Overtime

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was far from even a mediocre player in the first half of Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, but he recovered from a poor first two quarters. He was just 3-of-13 for 45 yards when he headed to the locker after 30 minutes. He finished 21-of-40 for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

He really wasn't helped by his receivers for most of the game, as he saw drops from pretty much all of his targets. Demaryius Thomas was the outstanding culprit since he missed an early touchdown for the Broncos. However, he did catch Tebow's only touchdown pass.

As expected, most of his performance came in the fourth quarter. He was also the team's leading rusher with 12 carries for 49 yards. He had a punishing 16-yard first down run early in the game.

Tim Tebow Fantasy Projection: Denver Broncos QB Ranked As Top 10 QB Option

Coming off his best passing performance of the season, Broncos QB Tim Tebow projects as the No. 10 QB  this week according to NumberFire. Tebow was excellent passing the ball in the win over Minnesota last week, as he completed 10-of-15 for 202 yards and two touchdowns.

The emergence of a healthy Demaryius Thomas gives Tebow another target in the passing game. With both Thomas and Eric Decker proving to be reliable targets, Tebow should continue to grow as a passer. Tebow also generates great production rushing the ball, as he has rushed for 468 yards this season. Another key for Tebow is that he doesn't turn the ball over. The Broncos QB has thrown only one interception so far this season.

Tebow faces a favorable matchup this week, as the Chicago Bears struggle defending the pass. Chicago ranks No. 28 in the NFL in opponents passing yards per game, allowing 259.5 yards per game.
