Wait, What? Unemployed QB On More ESPN Fantasy Teams Than Jags Starter Henne

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s a reach, no matter what round you draft him.

Tim Tebow, despite not playing a regular-season snap since 2012, is owned by 1.3 percent of fantasy football teams on ESPN.com, the network tweeted on Tuesday.

That’s half a percentage point more than Chad Henne, who actually has a job as the starting quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Tebow is also available on Fleaflicker.com, though he’s owned by only 1 percent of teams compared to 12 percent for Henne. He isn’t an option in Yahoo Sports fantasy leagues, according to the New York Daily News.

The 27-year-old former Heisman Trophy winner was traded from Denver to New York in 2012 and released by the Jets after one tumultuous year as Mark Sanchez’s backup. He was picked up by New England, only to be cut during the 2013 preseason.

He now serves as an analyst for the SEC Network, though there are places he’d rather be than behind a desk. Like on the field.

“I feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been as a quarterback right now. I hope I get the opportunity to show that,” he said in December.

But at this point, that’s looking more and more like a fantasy.
