Tim Tebow Fantasy Projection: Denver Broncos QB Sees Improved Points Prediction

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has received a slight upgrade from numberFire right before his Thursday night contest against the New York Jets. Originally he had been projected for five completions on 14 attempts for 95 yards. He has since been projected upward for (round the numbers) 12 completions on 25 attempts for 140 yards. He's projected for 0.80 touchdown passes and 0.60 interceptions, so let's move them up to one touchdown and one interception.

But Tebow's value, if he can't pass (a real possibility), is tied to his running ability. He's been projected for 50 yards and 0.46 rushing touchdowns. These numbers always appear conservative. It might be worth it project at least another 20 yards onto his rushing total and one touchdown.

Tebow is still a viable starter for fantasy football owners, but will he is also a risky play. He's that risk-reward player who will make or break teams each week.
