With the majority of fantasy football leagues around the country already set for the upcoming season, one stat among ESPN drafts stood out: There are currently more fantasy leagues that own Tim Tebow than incumbent Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback Chad Henne.
According to ESPN’s Phil Murphy, Tebow was selected to 1.3% of the teams compared to Henne’s 0.8%.

Is this a product of the ongoing infatuation with Tebow, or the fact that nobody has faith in Henne?
Or maybe it’s a result of how Blake Bortles has performed this preseason, and the fact that he will likely take over the starting QB duties sometime this season.
Are the Tebow picks a gag selection at the end of a long, drunken draft?
Whatever the case may be, it’s interesting to still see Tebow with this sort of draw, especially since he’s unlikely to play a down this season.
