On Sunday morning, fantasy football owners make making last second changes to their lineups. If any of them are sitting on Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, they shouldn't be. After initial projections by numberFire had Tebow as one of the bottom fantasy quarterbacks for this week, he has since risen to No. 8 at his position and the No. 12 overall player this week.
NumberFire projects Tebow to have 15.44 points on 11-of-23 passing with 145 yards and one touchdown. He also is predicted to have 43 rushing yards. That might actually be more in line with what he does on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have one of the tougher run defenses in the league, which could force Tebow to throw more. This is the perfect opportunity for him to improve on that aspect of his game. Sunday could be a huge game for Tebow, but fantasy owners will need to also be prepared for more of his usual uneven play during most of the game before turning things on in the final minutes of play.
