I promise you this will be our last Tim Tebow(notes)-themed blog for the while. Heck, the guy isn't even playing this week; he's probably out saving the whales, putting out fires, mentoring kids at risk and abstaining from anything sinful. What a guy.
Tebow's become a polarizing figure in his pro career for all sorts of reasons. Let's focus on the field stuff. We know he can run, we know he has a strong but somewhat-scattershot arm, and we know he has a ton of things to learn about pocket play. And everyone recalls how he dominated the 2010 fantasy playoffs, scoring like Brad Pitt at a sorority function (maybe that's the wrong comparison).
The unofficial Yahoo! staff consensus says Tebow is a low QB1, inside the starting line. We're not sure what he'll do as a passer, but those rushing yards pay the bills. I'll have more thoughts about Tebow's rank when Shuffle Up and Pass returns next week (later today I'm doing the RBs, PKs and DEFs), but for now, let's get your opinions.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: rank the fantasy quarterbacks for rest-of-year value. Use the following scoring system: 4 points for a touchdown pass, -2 points for an interception, 1 point for every 20 passing yards, 1 point for every 10 rushing yards, and 6 points for rushing scores. How high, or how low, will you go on Tebow? Show us your cheat sheet.
You don't have to rank the entire leagu – just stop when you get to the Mile High Messiah. Let's see what the group thinks. And if you have a story to share about how your Tebow FAAB bidding went, we're all ears (be sure to include what the FAAB parameters are in your league).
I'll include my ranks as well, a little bit later. But this isn't about me – it's about the wisdom of crowds. Don't let your neighbor down, gamers.
