Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow will face one of the better teams in the NFL this season when he faces the New England Patriots on Sunday; however, the Patriots defense isn't the greatest, which could give Tebow an opening to become one of the top quarterbacks this week.
According to numberFire, Tebow will be the No. 9 overall fantasy player and quarterback this week. He's projected to reach 15.58 points on 13-of-23 passing with 169 yards, one touchdown, one interception and 36 rushing yards. He is a medium risk to start, which means numberFire is pretty confident that Tebow can meet his expected production.
If the Patriots jump out to an early lead, we'll need to see how well Tebow responds. If he continues with his three quarters of lackluster play, will he also be able to still perform in the fourth quarter if the Broncos defense has let the game slip out of hand? This will be Tebow's toughest test before a possible playoffs appearance.
