Is Tim Tebow worth picking up?
It's just one game, of course, and Tebow's passing numbers in Sunday's 39-23 loss to the Oakland Raiders look pedestrian, with only eight completions in 16 attempts, a Jimmy Clausen-like 138 passing yards and one touchdown pass that frankly should not have been (a Raiders defender whiffed and wide receiver Brandon Lloyd had the gift fall in his arms in the end zone). Still, that's 22 fantasy points, because Tebow buoyed his passing figures with 78 rushing yards and a touchdown. He managed to provide this in a hostile environment, with nasty weather and with his starting running back on the sidelines. It's way too early to type this with confidence, so don't misread the intent, but aren't those numbers typical of what Vick did in his early Atlanta Falcons years, before he learned how to properly read defenses, use his arm for good and make wise, on-field decisions? And that Vick was certainly fantasy viable.
