The NFL.com fantasy blog is currently trying to break the record for the mere mention of “vulture” on a Sunday, but there is some slight concern with Brocons QB Tim Tebow‘s first ever touchdown. I mean, this counts as a vulture touchdown, right? You do not have to be a running back to snake fantasy touchdowns.
Think about it, Tebow’s touchdown took away what could have been a hookup from fantasy’s hottest tandem this year — QB Kyle Orton and WR Brandon Lloyd. Orton could have been lofting a beautiful fade pass to Lloyd in the end zone, instead Tebow’s rumbling, stumbling jaunt into the end zone.
And is this something that fantasy enthusiasts are going have to think about in the future? Is Tebow going to be a bigger part of the offense? Especially down in the red zone? This is something to keep an eye on this afternoon and going forward. Because honestly, I was really hoping that Orton was going to challenge for 5,000 passing yards.
